Hi and welcome back to Bench Report! The MLS Cup is this weekend, so I’ll be hunting down Oregon bars in the D.C. area to cheer on the Timbers (sorry NYCFC fans). I’m hoping to return next week victorious and to an inbox full of your tips, news and feedback, which you can send to [email protected]. And follow me on Twitter at @jacq_thomsen
