Portland Teams Hail Oregon Marriage Decision

Portland Timbers Army TifoIt’s been a good week for landmark court decisions legalizing same-sex marriage, and both the Portland Timbers and Thorns took to Twitter to note the occasion in Oregon:

The reaction, while unique for sports teams, shouldn’t be a surprise from the Timbers and Thorns organization. Last October the teams became the first professional franchises in the nation to endorse a ballot initiative legalizing gay unions. Oregon voters weigh in on the proposal this November.

The Oregonian took the opportunity to talk to the Thorns’ Sarah Huffman. Huffman and Abby Wambach wed in Hawaii last fall, but while they consider themselves spouses their relationship does not yet have legal status. She said the couple plans to take those steps “when the time is right.”
