On May 2, 1975, the Seattle Sounders defeated the Portland Timbers in their inaugural game at Portland Civic Stadium (currently known as Jeld-Wen Field) in front of a crowd of 8,000 plus spectators, and ignited a rivalry that is now known as one of the most passionate derbies in American football history. The battleground of this war has spanned four leagues and nearly four decades. Now, once again, the time has come for us to stoke the embers of the bonfire and begin the rivalry anew for the 2013 season.

March 16th, at 5pm, the stage will be set at Royal Brougham Park (RBP) as the two sides square off against each other and begin this year's conflict for the rightful owner of the Cascadia Cup.

Having taken in a new manager and undergoing a huge overhaul since last season's miserable finish near the bottom of the table, the traveling contingent of the Timbers Army will be looking to this match for Porter to put his mark on his new managerial position, and prove he's the man for the job. Meanwhile Sigi and the Boys from Seattle will be lacing up their boots to once again establish who the real heavyweights are here in the NW and to topple the fake crown of the self-proclaimed "Kings of Cascadia".

As one battle rages on the field, another will be burning in the stands. So it's time to grab your scarf, clear your throat, and join us to cement our foothold as the best supporters group in the league. As the rest of the nation looks on, we will hold our ground to deal the first blow that will eventually bring our rivals to their knees, and get us closer to bringing the Cascadia Cup back home - where it belongs.

We are the ECS. We are Sounders till we die. We fight them here.

To celebrate the 10th season of the Cascadia Cup, the Emerald City Supporters, with their partner, Fuel Sports Bar, will host the annual Brougham Block Party. Located at the corner of Occidental Avenue and South Washington Street, this 21+ event will feature a large beer garden, food and full bar, ECS membership and merchandise tables, and raucous chants and songs. Festivities begin at 12 p.m., and covered areas, patio heaters, and extra restroom facilities will make this a comfortable party venue for all Sounders fans (21 and over). Drink specials for Redhook No Equal Amber Lager and Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey will also be featured.

Same as Tuesday. Maybe swap Martinez for Ochoa.

Depends on injuries to Brad and Rosales. Not sure how severe either were, and the club hasn't discussed it.

I can see Rosales out for Martinez, Brad out for Rose.

If Caskey and Rose start together, I'm going to get shitty drunk, because we will lose.

So that was a little exaggeration. But Rose and Caskey together is not good.

Merh, Sigi says Evans is probably out (calf strain). So we'll see Rose I assume.

Rosales is supposedly good to start. Probably won't last more than 70 I'd guess.
