RCTID: Stephen Hawking rocks Timbers scarf

Stephen Hawking

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Stephen Hawking, the celebrated author, physicist and cosmologist, is apparently a Portland Timbers fan.

A photo of Hawking wearing a Timbers scarf is circulating around Twitter:

It was given to Hawking by Brett Bigham, the 2014 Oregon Teacher of the Year. Bigham met Stephen Hawking at Cambridge University in London this week to discuss voice output machines and accessibility for people with disabilities.

"It was a pretty amazing, private meeting," Bigham said. "He shared writing his books using his voice output machine which runs by him using a muscle in his cheek and he was kind enough to sign several books for me."
