Vancouver and Portland announcements coming?

All indications these days tell us the MLS will announce that Vancouver will get an expansion franchise very soon.
Bob Lenarduzzi, the Whitecaps president, said he expects some sort of announcement before the MLS season opening on Thursday in Seattle.
If you remember, the league said it wanted to announce this before the season started. Which is just around the corner.

One more Northwest team is good news. So two more is great news, right?

MLS Rumors has some info hinting that a Portland announcement could be coming Friday morning. All very exciting for the Pacific Northwest soccer community.

The Cascadia Cup rivalry could be back in form in the near future. Plus, having natural rivals is only a good thing for all parties involved.

Very exciting stuff.
