If you were watching Thursday’s Copa America match on TV or anywhere within earshot of the Brougham End, you were probably a bit struck by a song that the American Outlaws started singing at 62:00. Yes, that was "You are my sunshine," a song that has become synonymous with Timbers Army, at least in soccer circles.
But before you get all worked up, you should know there’s a good idea behind it: They were honoring the Orlando shooting victims (Orlando is the 62nd AO chapter).
Michael Bradley also wore a rainbow captain’s armband to honor the predominantly LGBTQ victims.

In addition to the in-stadium singing, AO chapters around the country also joined in the singing.
And just in case you were wondering, AO did a few Sounders-inspired chants too. Perhaps the best was their rendition of "pogo song."
