One of my favorite traditions is from the Portland Timbers. Every goal their mascot (a real live Lumberjack) revs up his chainsaw and slices off a slab. These are sometimes given to fans, auctioned for charity or given to players. So organic and authentic, along with the great visual and sounds of a lumberjack’s chainsaw slicing through a thick log.
What other traditions compete with that?
Here’s a great post from a 5 goal night in Portland…with the Army in the background going insane.
