Here is “Timber Joey” slicing off part of “the Victory log” with a chainsaw during the Portland Timbers’ 4-2 win over the Chicago Fire last night. The tradition dates back to the NASL team in the 1970s. Timber Joey has a resume to make us hold our manhoods cheap, or at least snicker with glee at the number of double entendres. He was once a U.S. National Rugby Player and a professional bare-back bronco rider. He is a certified lumberjack who competes in “pole climbing, jack double bucking, fire hose relays, axe throwing, log rolling and hot saw operation” competitions. He makes his living by owning a concrete finishing company and being the “security manager” at a restaurant. [Video via Mocksession]
