Timbers 1 - 1 Seattle; More From Scot in Sunderland

The Timbers pulled a single point out of the bag Saturday night at PGE Park when Shaun Higgins equilized on 86 minutes converting a Tom Poltl cross. The Sounders had led from the 22nd minute after Scott Jenkins had given Seattle the lead.

The Timbers are now unbeaten in the last 6 games.

August 21, 2005

Congrats to the Timbers for pulling out the tie and keeping the unbeaten streak going!!! It's annoying having to wait to find out the score but knowing that we are holding strong makes it well worth it.

Today's training went well, the majority of it was reserve guys and those that played 30 or less in the Liverpool game. It was a standard post game practice, possession, going to goal, and ending with some optional finishing. It was a struggle today in that I got banged up when we went to goal. As one of the other players was dribbling to goal I slide across from the outside left to stop him and as he was about to shoot he took a strong touch and slide trying to poke the ball in. As he did so, I stepped in to block the shot and my ankle caught in between his poking left leg and the trailing right. Surprisingly it looked a lot worse than it actually felt, because my immediate reaction was that I severely twisted my ankle. But after a minute or so I walked it off and kept playing.

My overflowing pride would never let myself walk off in the middle of a game while on trial, especially in England and my bullocks are too big for that. And speaking of bullocks, after my tackle I was marking one of the forwards and as the ball was played into him I stepped around him and poked the ball away. Unfortunately though as we struggled to win the ball, I felt the stinging back hand slap against my royal jewels. The coaches could only have a laugh at my pain, and bent over...I had a laugh too. The more times I'm fouled or injured, the better I'm playing...so hopefully my bruised jewels are a sign of good things to come.

all the best

August 20 2005

Today has been a long day, boring and uneventful.

I'm here for such a short amount of time that I really appreciate the days we have training and like being around the other guys on the team. I worked out in the hotel gym again and afterward went on a half day journey to find a pub showing the Sunderland vs. Liverpool game.

If you don't know, Newcastle and Sunderland share an ardent rivalry and as such no pub in the city would dare show the game. Unknowingly I made the trek anyway, but with no avail. The straw that broke my back though was that none of the premiership games were televised today. Soccer Saturday, as advertised by sky sports, was nothing more than repetitive commentary of ex-players giving color commentary. Further adding insult to injury, the numerous highlights weren't even shown.

Frustration and anger boiled with each step I took throughout the city and was only quelled by the gorgeous whether and interaction with other people besides Jean, the hotel maid, and Jo the front receptionist. Yes I know their names...we're very close...best friends even.

Anyway so as I'm taking my journey my stomach starts talking to me because I haven't eaten since breakfast. But I don't want to buy anything because I have free meals at the hotel. Yes I am that cheap. So I'm walking around Newcastle getting sky sports updates that Sunderland, a man down, is losing to Liverpool in the second half and I couldn't watch any of it. Now I'm just waiting to go to sleep so that I can go train tomorrow. I guess it's better that I'm complaining about my day off than how I'm actually playing.

all the best
