I was bored so I bought a king size flat sheet and 100 balloons. Only cost me 30 bucks. The balloons don't float too well. They are more for holding them in your hands as a filler like done here by Portland Timbers. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISxNURopKOM"]YouTube - Portland Timbers Army[/ame] Then when your done you just hit them around. I'm doing a banner right now from a sweet Captain America image but instead of this it's Captain Frankie. I posted it on facebook since I have no MLS fans of different teams on my facebook, if you want to check it out it's 50%-60% percent done. Still need to add the writing and a couple other things on the guy. It actually looks really pretty sweet since I spent the last four hours free handing it. So, if I'm facebook friends with you check it out or PM me and I'll send you the pic link. I figure just hold up this banner as a crowd banner along with Thoma's Warzycha one that wasn't properly viewed last time and just give people balloons to hold on the walk out around the banners and then throw them around. Similiar to the Timbers video. Just two crowd banners instead of one. I'll just put the yellow balloons in 3 clothes baskets and bring in my crowd banner whenever everyone else is setting up. I don't know if people will understand the balloon idea but it was cheap and worth a shot. Cost me 6 bucks for all the balloons. If that doesn't work out and everyone is in a sordid mood since the section was probably a little more happy against TFC, then I'll just hang this up as a banner. There is room in the front left for that and save the balloons for another day. I thought what the heck though, mise well throw out the idea as the teams needs a vibrant Nordecke more then it ever will with their slump and tomorrow's attendance. I also figure it will be a cheap and effective tifo and like almost zero set up time. All I need is some people to wave a balloon around in their hands and a couple to hold the banners. If everyone else is down I'll either coordinate this all on the left side. Where me, Thoma, and Big Al and his buddies stood the last time. Or one on the left side with some balloons around it (that me, Thoma, Big Al and his buddies can hold) and one on the right side with CSU with some balloons around. And then throw them around after the walkout. That depends on who is enthusiastic about the idea. I find I have the best luck with random people and CSU, after the Eastern Conference I just sort of avoid HSH on these things even though I'm in there. It's no big deal, just not there style; as a lot were game for the first go during the Eastern Conference but a few gave me some gruff and were annoyed when I jumped the gun during the Eastern Conference and told everyone to hold them up again. Understandable, and everyone has their own style. I always go to Ruby's and I love the walkover. But, I might think about in a year or two starting a hybrid Ultras group (kind of like Big Al has his group without a definable hangout. Won't be a big deal, as I'll still do what I usually do on game day, just would be more people into and down for this.) That depends if I'm still hopefully around Columbus. San Jose, Chicago, and Toronto all have these. Some not very good, some do some good things. I just think a group like that to the right of the stage, left side of the Nordecke would be cool since we are missing a group of organized people into this stuff. It's definitely how I want to support the team. I like to switch it up every game and do something new, instead of the same stuff and the same chants. But, anyways that's just a random thought I might think about for the future. For now, just trying to relay an idea for tomorrow's game.
