Oh mighty Nick, you have fallen. Unwilling to promote the USOC? Wilt was able to draw a crowd of 20k plus for the Fire to do the double in 98, and that was an amazing atmosphere. Why can't you do the same? How about not being shown up by that Peter Hawkings look-alike Wilt and put some real promotion into this match. Winning hardware in front of a buoyant crowd will look good on the news channels but also will win over fans. This is the type of advertising that wins support: Being able to play for a Cup that means something. This could win over more fans then any doubleheader or Heritage night. Do more then just e-mails and web advertising, Nicky boy, this is our chance to earn respect and fans and some momentum for the playoffs. Implore AEG for some extra funds on this one. Also call Zoffinger and see if he can't promote some too. And plenty of commercials during the Metro Soccer Report and home matches wouldn't hurt. Hype this thing up. Don't let that little goober weasel Wilt outshine you. We can draw more then 20k for this event, but you have to lead the way.
