If you follow us here you know I am big fan of the untraditional mascot program with Portland’s Timbers. Their real live Lumberjack character is the embodiment of the team and their culture. They have found countless ways to weave what a lumberjack does into a mechanism to stoke fan passion. It’s really an incredible program.
Need more proof?
Here Timber Joey gives a tribute to the season with the use of several unlikely musical instruments.
Fantastic piece that hits all the right notes.
Note: We have been battling some computer issues for the last 3 weeks, which has causes delays in our posts. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and we expect a more timely and consistent Water Cooler element in the New Year. The posts will all be here for December, slowly but surely. Thank you for your understanding.
