Fellow Burn fans, As a continuing effort to keep y'all apprised on Operation Eff Chicago 2003, the ongoing league-wide effort to deny the Chicago Fire the opportunity to get their grubby mitts on any silverware, let me give you an update: Brimstone Cup? Mission accomplished. The Fire couldn't win it outright, so it stays with the holders. Supporters Shield? Mission almost accomplished. San Jose would have to fold like a pup tent to not win it. MLS Cup? Work in progress. However, the US Open Cup is an area of grave concern. The Fire are in the final on October 15 at Giants Stadium against the MetroStars. You all know what you need to do -- support the Metros for one night. I understand that many of you have a strong disdain for the MetroStars, but let's not lose sight of what's important here. Chicago must go down, and they must go down hard. Go Metros.
