i was so excited to hear that my brother, jared, got tickets for us to go see the portland timbers soccer team play. we were worried we'd miss that last few games being in virginia, but since illya and i had to come back a week or so early, we were able to make it to this one and the last game of the season coming up this thursay! it was awesome!! the craptastic part of the night, though, happened when we were sitting down from the national anthem being sung and the soccer ball whizzed right over our heads and into the arms of a guy a few rows back! had we been paying attention, that ball would've been ours!!but, on a better note, we kicked the poo outta' the other team, winning 4-0!
