Breaking News: MLS to Portland

While not confirmed officially, all signs are pointing to Portland being awarded the second MLS expansion bid on Friday. MLS has reserved a room at a local Hilton for a press announcement on Friday. Great news for yours truly since I live in Portland, but really not great timing since Portland will be hosting first round NCAA basketball tournament games on Friday for the first time in decades. But, whoever said MLS Execs were scheduling geniuses? Certainly not me.

Almost as good as having your newest franchise play it's first game on the first day of the NCAA tournament!

@Ibra:
Looks that way, and they'll follow up their newest franchise's first game being on the opening day of March Madness by marking the announcement of the newest expansion team on day 2 of March Madness! BRILLIANT!!!

Seriously, do Trappist monks schedule MLS announcements??
