    Revs @ WM Pioneers in June
    probably about 20 overall since 96.

    "so when are we getting the how far do you travel for your home matches thread?"

    1:30 - 2:00 to get to the final road. About five more hours to get to the parking lot.

    None this year because the Fusion went bye bye.

    Previously, I attended every Fusion home match from year 2 to year 4. In year one, I was attending school in Gainesville, but managed to make the opener by driving in the middle of the night after I got off work. I returned to South Florida with about 5 home games left in that season and went to them all.

    Every Revs game, including the opener in NY. I've also been to half last year, plus the All-Star game, all of 2000, plus the all important playoff game (in which they beat the Fire) and 3 in 99.

    I have been to all DC United home games, including US Open Cup games & CONCACAF Champions cup games, InterAmerican Cup game & International friendlies (Leeds United, Newcastle, Bayer Leverkusen & Boca Juniors).

    I have also been to all DC United games in the Meadowlands.

    And I have been to one DC United game at Columbus Crew Stadium, this year (two weeks ago, because the game was not televised!).

    Well, this year is the first year I have been able to attend games. I've been to every Fire home games but three of them this season. I missed the first 0-0 game vs DC (already had plans), the first game against LA (didn't feel like sitting in the rain again...), and the San Jose game due to my sister's grad party. I also attended that pathetic game in Milwaukee for the US Open Cup.

    In 2001, thanks to my stupid job, I only attended Sting/Power reunion night, and the first playoff game against Dallas. I also attended the MLS Cup game in Columbus.

    In 2000, I think I attended maybe five games. Again, thanks to work, I couldn't go to more. Jobs ruin lives.

    In 1999, I attended one game, and 1998 I didn't get to go to any. I was still in college these years, and wasn't in Chicago too much.

    Somehow I have managed to make it to every MLS Cup so far....

    1996-MLS Cup-DC-LA....AKA the Monsoon
    1997-MLS CUP-DC-COL....Best MLS Cup in my opinion
    1998-MLS Cup-Chi-DC...Part of a road trip to Vegas
    1999-MLS Cup-DC-LA...Sloppy game on a horrible pitch
    2000-MLS Cup-KC-Chi....Good game...Fire fans were great
    2001-Col-NE...followed USA-T&T....ended after midnight
    -Dall-Chi....Waldo won in OT!!!!
    -Chi-C-bus....Crew piss on the Fire
    -TB-DC...Pouting after USA-Honduras
    -MLS Cup-SJ-LA...Great game, Crap atmosphere

    Sadly, I haven't been able to make down to Columbus or Napierville this year(My 2 closest destinations)......Something always seems to come, I was pretty much incommunicado for the month of June!

    I'm definitely aiming to keep my streak alive and make to Foxboro in October!

    1996- about 10, and playoffs
    1997- all of them at home
    1998- all of them but a couple, at home
    1999- all of them, including victory over Fire in the best match MLS has ever seen
    2000- all but 3
    2001- all but 3
    2002- I think I've been to all of them at home, plus the Colorado game two weeks ago.

    the USOC games, I've only been to one. But I'll go tomorrow to watch us beat the Rapids.

    1996: 2 games. The first being the Wizards franchise opener against the Rapids. The second being Game 2 of the semifinals against the Galaxy.

    1997: 2

    1998: 2

    1999: 2

    Then my work schedule shifted.

    2000: Perfect home attendance: 16 regular season games, 4 playoff games, and a roadtrip to DC for MLS Cup. 21 games total.

    2001: Missed 1 home game due to being out of town. 1 game was cancelled due to September 11th. So, 12 regular season games and 1 playoff game. 13 total.

    2002: Perfect home attendance so far, plus one road trip to DC for the 4/20 match at RFK. 12 total.
    I project getting perfect home attendance this year and as many playoff games as we get.

    Total MLS games: 54 and counting

    Also, I've attended 2 U.S. Open Cup matches the Wizards have played in (both in 2001). 1 Copa Mercanorte match (2001). 2 TFC Champions Cup matches (2002) and I will attend at least one more of those.

    Miami FC
    96....Road trip to Tampa for opener vs. Revs
    98-2001...about 95% of all Fusion home games, plus one cross state trip to see them blast the Mutiny 4-0

    Bought lots of merchandise, used to 'shoe polish' my car windows with match results and slogans to publicize the team. Used to call the sports radio stations, campaigning for more coverage. Dragged anyone I could to the matches.

    Now I don't do any of that.

    Now I don't attend or watch any games.

    Way to go, schmuckheads (you know who you are).

    Way to 'grow' !!
