    yeah it is one of my favorites. I thought about trying to put together a year by year gallery of all the Battery kits

    I can do from 1998 without much trouble but the 1993-1997 season might be tough to find photos of

    I'm wondering how long Umbro will be able to continue making kits for the Battery. I like their kits, but I just heard that they have lost both England and Manchester City's kit rights. It isn't known how long can stay competitive. I believe that Umbro is also a sponsor of the Battery and USL as well.

    I'm wondering what the older trophy's that the Battery won looked like Mikey. I understand that they have won a USPL title and a A-League championship in addition to the 2 USL titles they have recently won.

    the USSL award was flat, so it has to hang or lean. The a-League trophy was pretty cheap, smaller than the USL ones and two toned.

    I've been looking for a video of the full Open Cup final in 2008, but i've only found a highlight reel for the match and didn't include the equalizer from Marco Reda that was disallowed.

    whitecap10 hasn't been online since the night before the Sandy hit the NYC area. I'm not exactly sure but I believe he said he was in the long island area.

    I hope he is okay

    Thank you for checking on me. I am fine, but the power outages around the area have been very bad.

    Does anyone know/remember what some of the highest scoring regular season USL games involving the Battery were from 2001-2010, or the early 2010s?
