In advance of their 5-1 opening night smackdown of Minnesota United, Portland Timbers fans unveiled a tribute to everyone’s favorite lover of trees, super-chill cult-hero painter Bob Ross.
The giant tifo tribute featured three massive banners of a tree background landscape that ran across the entire fan section and read “Happy Little Trees.” The finale was the unveiling of the giant banner of Ross, who rose from the ground in all his smiling, afro’d glory, calmly painting away. Very calm. Very Calm. There….
Standing-O for Timbers’ fans. As Mr.Ross once wisely said, “There’s nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend.”
Here’s a video of Bob Ross in action. Painting trees. Enjoy.
