Timbers fire back at Galaxy with scientific parody video on Twitter

After the Portland Timbers' 3-1 victory over the LA Galaxy on Sunday, Portland's social media inflicted their own takedown of their Western Conference rivals, and proved they have a long memory in the process.

On the team's Twitter account, the Timbers released a scientific video parody about the LA Galaxy's "fading star" phenomenon. Their shot across the digital bow probably appeared unprompted. But it was actually most likely a response to the "shooting stars" meme LA released after a 1-0 loss to the Timbers in March to address their grievances about a couple calls in the match. That video depicted Diego Chara and David Guzman ... um ... simulating themselves through the stars, the air, a skateboard and a Slip 'N Slide (or off-brand equivalent).
