The Timbers show love for the other Portland


PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — In the ongoing feud between the Seattle and Portland soccer teams, the Portland Timbers have reached out to show their love for the other Portland. 

It appears the Timbers bought an ad Portland, Maine’s newspaper, the Portland Press Herald. The ad features a postcard that reads, “Dear Portland, ME, They tried to tear us apart. It only strengthened our bond. Portland forever. All our love, Portland, OR”

The Portland Press Herald called the ad as “absolute beauty” on Twitter.

The newspaper also tweeted a photo of a group of Timbers fans in Maine.

The ad seems to be a response to the Seattle Sounders billboard in downtown Portland that says “Seattle loves Portland, Maine.” The campaign also has a website that declares Portland, Maine “The only Portland that matters.”
