For those who have listened to the pod and read me here you likely know I am a huge fan of the Portland Timbers unconventional mascot program started by Timber Jim.  Jim is a Portland icon and (to me) absolute mascot legend.  Timber Jim is everything a mascot should be: a symbol for the team, an ambassador in the community and someone kids and adults can connect with and admire.

Happy Birthday Timber Jim!
