Northwest nerdery: Soccer + Chinook Jargon

Northwest nerdery: soccer + Chinook Jargon…

Portland Timbers fans holding up banners during the national anthem before a match:

TIMBERS HIAS SKOOKUM” (it’s a chant, too)
“WHITECAPS HIAS CULTUS
“SOUNDERS HIAS MESACHIE
“TIMBERS TOLO KONAWAY

I rest my case: we are a truly odd bunch 🙂

(Delate huloima nesika)
