I don’t know what this is.

23 Jun

I’m afraid to get excited.

Halfway through the season. One loss.

One loss. That’s it.

Earlier in the week, the Timbers rose to the top of the power rankings. I think I tweeted something at the time about being filled with dread. And then we took four more points and moved to the top of the league table.

And now I honestly don’t know what to do with myself.

An embarrassment of riches. That’s what we have here. An absolute embarrassment.

I know lots of people are letting their guard down and I’ll admit I did very early in the season. I think it was after our first match when I declared that we would win the league. But I’m over that.

I feel more cautious, more guarded than I ever have. A fifteen-game unbeaten streak and I’m still a little stormcloud. I don’t know what it’s going to take to get past this.

Simplest answer? Three cups and a shield.

      You’re not alone, Brian. You’re never alone. We’re in unprecedented territory here. I have no idea when or if it gets better.

      Three Cups and a Shield.
