thorns-107

Portland Thorns FC and the 107 Independent Supporters’ Trust announced today they had agreed to a four-year deal for the non-profit to become the club’s kit sponsor – the first major sponsorship agreement in Portland Thorns’ history. The agreement, which starts in April 2013 and runs through to the end of the 2017 season, will see the Independent Supporters’ Trust name and logo appear on the Thorns’ jersey.

Officials at the 107 Independent Supporters’ Trust remarked,” This partnership makes a lot of sense for the 107ist. We support soccer in and around Portland, Oregon, from the grassroots to the highest professional level, so when we saw the Thorns play their pre-season match in ordinary t-shirts, we knew we had to do something.”

Per NWSL and club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

A live version of the song is here. This should be well within our capabilities to completely master as a group within the next few weeks. If she can do it, we can!

It is vitally important to the solidarity of the group that we all sing the “Aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aah” part in unison and on pitch! For those (particularly our male supporters) who might have trouble, the 107ist will be providing a number of strapping young assistants wearing steel-toed boots who will issue targeted kicks to our singers at the appropriate moments. Not only will we have a string section (exciting—thanks, West Gresham Elementary!), we’ll also be purchasing a case of small birds to accurately reproduce the original arrangement. In the spirit of Portland’s values of reuse and recycling, we will be making these available to fans at the post-match BBQ! Please RSVP here to specify Buffalo, jerk or Thai peanut sauce.

Let’s make our girls proud!

Lovin’ you is easy cause you score the goals
Watchin’ goals by you is all I wanna do 
Lovin’ you is more than just a dream come true 
And everything that I do is out of lovin’ you 
La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la
Doot doot do doo, aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aah

No one else can make me wear
The colors of the Thorns
Stay with me while we grow old
And we will win each day, Alex Morgan
Cause lovin’ you has made my life so beautiful
And every day my life is filled with lovin’ you

Lovin’ you I see your goals come blastin’ through
And every time that you do
I’m more in love with you
La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la
Doot doot do doo, aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aah

No one else can make me buy
The t-shirts from the store
Stay with me while we grow old
And we will live each day feelin’ thorny
Cause lovin’ you is easy cause you score the goals
And every day my life is filled with lovin’ you

Lovin’ you I see your goals come blastin’ through
And every time that you do
I’m more in love with you
La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la
Doot doot do doo, aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aah
