Scotts® Post-Match Penalty Kicks - open to kids 14 and under (weather dependent). Forecast: Notes: These jokers are bad. They score less than us. They can't defend. They only have one point on the season. But, but, but, but... they're bringing the gloom of the Pacific Northwest to beautiful central Ohio to rain on our parade. Portland will draw or win again at some point this season; it better not be against us. Can the Crew cure their scoring blues against these Cascadia punks? Will CB9K end the Josh Williams experiment and bless the fans with Sauro? Is this the game where our wingers remember how to soccer? Probably no to all! Another thing to note: this game begins a run of three matches in eight days. We'll host DC on Wednesday, April 24, and head to Houston for a match on Saturday, April 27. On paper, this is the easiest match up. I'm curious to see how Porter handles squad rotation. Oh... I also really, really, really like to beat Portland. Why? Because I still remember 2015. Thanks for nothing, alcohol. Discuss.
