Carlos Alberto Parriera couldn't do it in 1997, Alfonso Mondelo couldn't do it in 1998, Oz couldn't do it in 2000. These are the three seperate seasons that the Metro have entered the Semi-Finals of the US Open Cup and lost. One last step to reach the final match and none of these coaches were able to do the job. Bob Bradley has lead us for the first time to the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup Final. He has lead us to one of two promise lands. He can rally the troops and create true footballers out of them. What a man, what a brain, what a coach. Finally the sun will shine brightly for the Metro. Hosting a US Open Cup Final is absolutly fabulos and it's time to start spreding the news and get everyone involved to watch our boys with a full squad to kick the crap out of the Chicago Fire. They may have taken the MLS season series, but this time we are taking our first US Open Cup.
