Possible Portland soccer team names.

There was a suggestion on my last post to come up with a name for Portland's possible soccer team. I thought I'd come up with a few ideas for team names. Let me know what you think.

The Portland Beards - There are a very large number of people with beards here in Portland. I am one of them.

The Portland Brew - To celebrate Portland's many many microbreweries.

The Portland Pibbers - As in PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon), the drink of choice for Portland's enormous contingent of hipsters.

The Portland Fixies - Because those same hipsters ride fixed-gear bicycles.

The Portland Bridges - You know, because there's a bunch of bridges. I don't know how many. I should probably figure that out.

Any other, better ideas?

I said BETTER ideas! :) I like the Lumberjacks. It's a little cumbersome, but it seems the perfect name for a Triple A team.

If an MLS club is awarded it will be named the Portland Timbers. Merritt Paulson isn't going to change a name that dates back to 1975 and that is one of the coolest in all of sports.

Well thanks anonymous reader for clearing that up in a slightly conceited, ambiguous manner. Of course Merritt Paulson isn't going to change a 33 year old name; why did I think he would?!
