IT IS TIME. At the end of The Lion King, Rafiki quietly shook his rattle, subtely motioned for Simba, the rightful king, to ascend Pride Rock, and softly spoke these words: "It is time." Ladies and gentlemen; followers of the American Outlaws, Sam's Army, and The Inferno; fans of FC Dallas: It is time. It is time for us to shake our rattles, vuvuzelas, drums, flags, banners, and voices. It is time for us to motion the way. It is time for the United States Men's National Team to assume our rightful place at the Top of the Rock, finish what we started last summer, and roar over the kingdom as only the rightful kings can! Join the American Outlaws and FC Dallas as we take the first few steps on a crazy ride of a lifetime, one for the ages, one that will be remembered, literally, forever.
