I'm from Mississippi. I do not have a set MLS team because I do not have a team in the region. Dallas at 11 hours away is the closest option. I have family in Portland, and love northwest culture. I like what seattle is doing for American soccer, but I do not like seattle. I realize that the future of American soccer lies in the hands of the Northwestern rivalries (Vancouver, Seattle, Portland) and I'd like to help bring the great sport to America. I've watched many youtube videos and love the chants. Can ya'll sell me on some of the players/history of the franchise?
