A Jack Russell terrier that somehow ended up in Oregon more than four months after she went missing from her home near Philadelphia is going to be flown back to the Keystone State. A microchip implanted in Gidget allowed workers at an animal shelter south of Portland to find the dog’s owner. Shelter manager Deborah Wood says PetLink, the company that manufactured the microchip, has offered to pay for her return flight.

Yes, that Nick Rimando. The Real Salt Lake keeper who’s 8-1-2 all time against Portland. The Timbers nemesis who’s allowed just three goals in four matches at Providence Park. So why would Carpenter, a 28-year-old member of Timbers Army since 2007, carry such regard for a star who’s enjoyed so much success against his c...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The nickname was later captured on an expansive banner displayed during a visit by Pele. Nearly 40 years later, the city is primed to solidify the moniker it hosts Major League Soccer’s All-Star game.
