Throw Another Log on the Fire

One the best traditions in sports from the Portland Timbers.

One of my favorite traditions is from the Portland Timbers.  Every goal their mascot (a real live Lumberjack) revs up his chainsaw and slices off a slab. These are sometimes given to fans, auctioned for charity or given to players. So organic and authentic, along with the great visual and sounds of a lumberjack’s chainsaw slicing through a thick log.

What other traditions compete with that?

Here’s a great post from a 5 goal night in Portland…with the Army in the background going insane. Plus is a network to enhance the fan value of events.  Twice a month we gather for an hour-long discussion on an industry topic with a special guest to share their insights.
