ECS in Vancouver, WA?

General ECS talk.

Any other supporters in southern Washington? Just moved to Vancouver, WA which seems inundated with Timbers fans and I am looking for a bar to watch the Sounders at, and hoping to God there are some other ECSers around to support with.

Vancouver is basically a Portland suburb. Good luck.

I miss you sabinj. It might be tough to find supporters in the VAN but there's a few people from there that are in SEA now.

I'm actually going to be down there in a week and a half (17-19) for the wife to run a half-marathon. Need someone to watch the game with. We'll have to meet up, yes?

Whenever I am in pdx, Dante's at 3rd and Burnside has always been willing to turn on a TV to the match for me. And their pizza is awesome, so. night matches may be a bit of an issue on weekends, since they often do sound check for who ever is playing there that weekend right at 5, but afternoon matches have always been solid.

Yeah, they're pretty sweet like that. The most free whiskey of my life happened there. I am not clear on the why, the how, or the end result except the drive home the next day was hell. In anycase. :P

thanks Kwen, I'll keep this in mind.

I think I'll be SOL in Vancouver, all the bars are Timbers, and Timbers Army members have already told me its unlikely to change. But give me time... I"ll convert scum supports yet!

I live in North Portland and have had the same question. I wonder if we could gather enough people to take over a bar and make it a Sounders bar.

HEY! Haven't seen the likes of you in the forums in quite a long time!

Vancouver is a pretty tough audience, but keep your eyes open. If I'm ever back in Camas during an away-match weekend, I'll be sure to PM you and get something going out there.

This was in my local paper, I commented on wanting to find Sounders fans and the newspaper is interviewing me. And so my take over begins!

@Inexile- I'm totally game! where in No Po are you?

I am just east of I-5 between Lombard and Rosa Parks. I watched the first game against the Whimpers at the St. Johns Pub. Needless to say I was the only Sounders fan in a sea of Christmas colors.
