AND ALL THAT JAZZ! The Portland Thorns HIGH KICKED into their preseason Sunday night when they beat the Chicago Red Stars 1-0! KARATE CHOP FLIP FLOP! It certainly wasn't a huge crowd that attended this first of three Thorns preseason matches, but what the stadium lacked in attendance, the fans made up for with volume and support. THEY MIGHT BE WATER LOGGED AND DEPRESSED,BUT THORNS FANS CAN STILL START A FIRE! THEY HAD IT COMING The Red Stars controlled the ball for the majority of the first half.
