Portlandia Episode Features Portland’s Timbers Army
Friday nights episode of the quirky IFC comedy hit Portlandia, featured the Timbers Army in one the shows sketches. The show starting Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen that takes place in and pokes fun at Portland, Oregon, managed to squeeze in a skit that included the Portland Timbers supporters group.
It’s not the first time the Timbers Army have been used in a Portlandia skit. Earlier this season a handful of the supporters could be seen in the “Allergy Pride” piece. “If you watch the parade, they’re the Soy Punks,” Armisen told Shawn Francis of MLS Soccer.com. “They were perfect for it because they were so good at shouting and shouting angrily.”
