Philadelphia Union Fans Brilliantly Troll Portland Timbers Chainsaw Celebration

By

The Sons of Ben, the Philadelphia Union supporters group, deserved a lap of honor — perhaps the Key to the City of Chester, Pa., after this amazing display Saturday night in the team’s 3-0 win over the Portland Timbers. There is trolling another team’s traditions … and then there’s this hilarious display that you can watch in the video.

If you’re not an MLS fan, here’s the quick primer: when the Timbers score a goal their unofficial official mascot Timber Joey cuts a log with a chainsaw.

Timber Joey replaced Timber Jim, who was the club’s super fan/mascot before it joined MLS.

Flash forward to Saturday night at PPL Park, and a couple Philly fans went all out mocking the Timbers tradition, replacing a log with a giant load of bread — presumably to make hoagies. Yes, before you start to complain the bread was already sliced — but why split hairs?

Say whatever you will about MLS or its stagnant television ratings, but if you live within driving distance of a franchise it’s worth checking out a game for the live atmosphere.
