Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson tweets sneak peeks of his club's new kits | SIDELINE

Merritt Paulson certainly knows how to keep them coming back – to his Twitter account, that is.

The Portland Timbers owner kicked off his 2014 Twitter presence with some strategically taken photos teasing the club’s two new kit options for the upcoming season. And, of course, that sent Timbers fans clamoring to the social media-savvy owner’s timeline to get a look, only if it was a peak at a few square inches of fabric, retweet and post their comments.

The first tweet teased the secondary, Rose City Red option.

He then teased the new third kit, which appears to be a retro, green-and-yellow design, perhaps in the vein of the old white-and-green third kit.

Fans will be able to get a complete look as MLS begins to unveil the 2014 kits in the coming weeks.
