    hmmm....

    In the Daily Herald article it says:
    "...Ring out of action: Fire backup goalkeeper Henry Ring has undergone surgery to repair a right labrum tear and is out of action for the remainder of the season. In his place, the Fire has signed goalkeeper Curtis Spiteri.

    Ring appeared in only one MLS match this season, playing the final 11 minutes and making 1 save in a 4-0 win over Colorado on May 25.

    Spiteri, 22, was the No. 1 goalkeeper for the Portland Timbers of the A-League before working with a German second-division team for a couple of weeks during the summer."

    the lad's been doing some travelling. A month ago he was given a tryout with Aberdeen FC

    And mid-September to mid-October is Hispanic Heritage Month for the whole U.S. Besides, didn't we already have a Polish Heritage night earlier this year?

    Indeed. July 26th against KC.
     
  6. The only ethnic holiday that counts, Columbus Day is this weekend. The crew from West El will be at the parade Monday & hopefully on camera. By all rights it should be Italian Heritage night, which covers Martino, Capano, Coz, Ivaldo, a few Argentines, myself & a few others I haven't mentioned. Avanti paisans, out of the closet.

    A while back I had heard on these boards that the field would actually "adjust" to accomodate soccer. More to the point, the stands would actually move. That press release says that the field isn't that much wider than Naperville. Which is right? I know not to believe most of the stuff I see on BigSoccer, but I also know that MLSNet fact-checking is sometimes spotty. What are the dimensions?
     
  10. The west side stands can move in like Foxboro. Tonight the field was about 70 yards wide.

    They said in non-football season it would be 75 yards.

    OK, so your stands move and they let you sit on both sides of the stadium? You guys suck.

    But seriously, can you make the stands jump like at RFK?
