Timbers Army compares traveling hijinks
The Portland Timbers supporters group, Timbers Army, developed a unique system for finding one another when their Rose City team was on the road.
The movement started with a hashtag of the date #41411, but it quickly took on a life of its own as the season progressed. For future road matches, there was always at least some small contingent of Timbers Army folks in attendance, so hashtags like #NYCaway or #DCUaway or #RSLaway became their unique identifier.
The hashtags picked up extra steam as traveling fans tried to top each other with more epic tales of away-game hijinks.
