Well the house would have cleaned up last week if John Spencer hadn’t revealed during practice that Songo’o would be playing for sure.  Thethirst21 took advantage before I was able to close the lines and took a big lead in the balances.

We had a request to do a true over/under, so I’ve added that this week, plus a bunch more bets based roughly on real odds.

The Rules
-Everyone gets $20 in monopoly money each week to bet with, as long as you play. Anyone can jump in at any time.
-If you are carrying a balance, you get your balance plus $20.  You can bet all the way up to your balance.
-Leave your bets in the comments.

The Lines
Lines close at 6:55pm Saturday (unless otherwise noted in italics)

Goal Scorers

  • Boyd 2:1
  • Jewsbury 8:1
  • Perlaza 9:1
  • Nagbe  8:1
  • Chara 10:1
  • Alhassan 8:1
  • Songo’o 10:1

Sorry about the last minute nature of this match’s betting lines.  Here’s the updated balances.  Remember, anyone can play even if you don’t have a balance.  If you don’t see your name and you made a bet last week, it’s because nothing paid out.  Also for a few minutes I had the results posted up, but I had made an error and paid out the field, so if you saw those, they were wrong.

Balances

shrekpdx $90

Woody $65
DaveH $21
Andrew Wheeler $60

“It was a terrible night with terrible rain, but that didn’t dampen the fans. The game went well and it’s a night that I’ll genuinely remember forever

Treemendous from The Scottish Sun, is a great read.  I hadn’t even thought about the irony of Kris Boyd huddling in his Timbers green (he’d already mentioned getting used to the color) with the Timbers before a match.

 

Boyd’s knees-to-his-chest celebration was like Charlie Nicholas for Scotland against Switzerland in 1983.

He grinned: “I have always joked with with my mates back in Tarbolton about my celebrations when I score.

“For years they’ve been winding me up about it.

“Down the years I’ve done various things so I don’t know what I was thinking when the ball hit the back of the net. It was just a natural reaction. Was it like Charlie Nicholas? I didn’t even think about that.”

In case you missed it last year, a famously bad article on the Sons of Ben.  When will British GQ be out to follow the Timbers Army around?

If you’ve been on a bender like us all off-season, have no fear.  We’ll bring you up to date in just two minutes.

Believe it, Merritt Paulson’s Twitter Feed has supplanted blogs, newspapers and that friend of yours who saw Songo’o apartment shopping as the number one source of up to the minute Timbers rumors.
