In the early days of the NASL club, the Timbers started a unique and beloved game-day tradition that continues to this day – the cutting of the “log slab.” After each goal scored at home by the Timbers, a round is cut from the victory log behind the North goal. Amidst a cloud of sawdust and the roar of a chainsaw, fans celebrate. This time-honored tradition has helped make Timbers matches a one-of-a-kind soccer experience in the United States. Timber Jim started the tradition by hanging from rafters with a running chainsaw in tow. Jim retired and Timber Joey took over the position in 2008, continuing the Timbers tradition that captures the attention and hearts of the Timber faithful.
