  • Portland's Freddie Braun was dubbed "TimbersFC top model" by teammate Lovel Palmer, but it'll be three of his teammates on the runway Thursday for Portland Fashion Week.

Blue steel? More like green steel.

With a nearly two-week break between Major League Soccer matches, Timbers players Mike Chabala, Rodney Wallace and Sal Zizzo will apparently get in a bit of workin' it in between workouts: The trio will take part in Portland Fashion Week by being featured in a runway show for EARTHTEC, a sustainable lifestyle apparel company, at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Vigor Industrial Shipyard.

From the press release:

“The Timbers have great moves on the field, but can they walk the runway? You will have to come see for yourself”, laughed Tito Chowdhury, Portland Fashion Week Producer. “The Timbers mean so much to the community. It is wonderful to have them engaged in Portland Fashion Week which showcases the creative edge that makes Portland special.”
