just thought this would be a good way to say goodbye to the team and close the book. I know this might not be the best time to start this thread seeing as how everyone is starting threads in the last few days, but here goes.... Just wanted everyone to share their personal Burn memories, of what you remembered over the years and what was special to me... 1996 (at the tender age of 10 and 11)- My first Burn game on May 23, 1996 against Tampa Bay. We lost 1-0 on a Lassiter goal. Also remember being at the Mexico-Bolivia/Burn-Clash double header in the summer...we were on a losing streak and San Jose were the suck of the league. They scored frist and we were left thinking 'here we go again' but Hugo Sanchez to the rescue with an amazing bicylce kick to level the score and inspire the team to a 4-1 victory. The KC series was heartbreaking, after looking like we were going to win game 1 in Arrowhead they come from behind and win. Went to game 2 which we won 2-0, then remember listening to game 3 on the radio, losing in a shootout. 1997- Alian Sutter and Damian tearing it up. Beating LA in the conferance semi-finals and somehow losing to the cRapids in the finals. Winning the open cup, seeing it at the FO and getting to touch a piece of American Sports history. 1998- Nothing too proud happened this year 1999- watching Kreis tear it up week in and week out. The emergance of Graziani. Went to game 1 of the Chicago series, where we won 2-1, remember watching in disgust the game 2 where we got our ass handed to us 4-0 and lost Brandon to the scum known as Dema. Remember coming home Wednesday night to find us down 2 goals only to watch them come back in the greatest ever MLS game. The LA series was a nail-bitter too, soo close. 2000- Who could forget Mathis scoring 5 on us? I went to game 2 of our series with NY, to see us lose narrowly 2-1, with 2 goals from you know who. My hatred for the Metroscum was at large back then, 2001- So many ups and downs, I actually only attended 2 games that year, both losses, 1-0 to the cRapids and 2-1 the Columbus. We weren't much better than 2004 back then either. 2002- ahh the glory days, at least for me they were, seeing the emergance of ROB. Jason scoring like crazy. Rhine actually being productive. The ultimate 3 games in 5 days screw job from MLS which led to our ultimate demise, losing to the cRapids yet again in a series we were by far the better side in. and the rest is the rest, made many new friends this year in the Inferno.
