Stadium Updates
The MLS season is coming sooner than you think and the stadium renovation project is now well underway. Our too good for you photographer no longer holds the exclusive scoop provided by his high perch. One of the best quality live construction webcams is now running. The Nerd is the Word has excellent pictures of the groundbreaking ceremony and he is also adding updates to his flickr account on a weekly basis.

The Timbers posted a short video of the groundbreaking ceremony.
Rose City Roots Blog marks the occasion.
MLSsoccer doesn’t want to be left out.

Local TV media outlets
KGW – Nice little piece by Randy, as he hypes up the new stadium.
Koin – Completely absent, as always, which is funny because they spent money putting Koin News posters all over the stadium this past year.  Yet try and find one decent Timbers related news story, your more likely to get Canucks hockey coverage than any local story about the Timbers. Fail.
KATU – Consistent Timbers coverage throughout and a Don Garber interview to boot, solid.
KPTV – I think channel 12 and channel 2 do the best local TV coverage of the Timbers, but KPTV gets the upper hand for the heart warming stories about the Timbers and the Timbers Army.

KC Wiz Stadium Update from The Back Post includes a 10 minute interview with David Ficklin (OnGoal Vice President of Development) about the project.
