Rose City ‘Til I Die: Portland Timbers’ Flickr photostream crowdsources PDX’s love of soccer
Portland is a town of many loves. There are the obvious ones. The coffee. The beer. The food. The books. And the technology. But some folks outside the town might not be as well phrased in one of the most well-loved sports in the city: soccer. Or to be more specific: The Portland Timbers.
When billboards of “Timbers fans” began popping up all over town, there were any number of “I could do that” claims from locals. Well, the Timbers heard those claims too. And they took the opportunity to ask their fans to do just that. Now, those images of true Portland Timbers’ fans are available on the Timbers’ Flickr photostream.
Just another interesting way that Portland is using technology, social media, and crowdsourcing to make the city such an awesome place to live.
