Yeah I would say that is rare typically Perlaza is running around like a mad man and Cooper is trotting as usual, or falling down.

That was great in addition to breaking out recent loosing trend.

They had a great rhythm going earlier in the season (at least at home) but they seem to have lost it, hoping this will help them get it back.

That is how I see it too.

I feel Perlaza is trying to make things happen they just aren't falling into place but Cooper.... well see above he just isn't trying from what I see. And as I understand it the whole reason we got the big Ox up there is to score, and he isn't. I forget who the game was against he couldn't even score when give to penalty kicks, Jewsburry finally had to score it for him.

The Chicago Fire are in the semi-finals of the US Open Cup! I have a great story to share:

Last week, I stopped by the Globe Pub in Chicago, to have dinner and wait out rush hour traffic before heading home. But half-way through my dinner, Peter Wilt, the former GM of the Fire sits down next to me. Turns out that Section 8 (the Fire's supporters group) was having an event that evening where they were replaying videos of the Fire's previous Open Cup victories. So I spent the next couple of hours visiting with him.

The 1998 Open Cup final was won when current Fire Technical Director and Interim Manager Frank Klopas scored the wining goal. Frank ended up joining us at the Globe, sitting with Peter and I, as we watched him score the goal on video. Great fun.

In any case, the season may be down the toilet for the Fire, but we're two wins away from winning yet another Open Cup - Go Fire!

Yeah dude I think that night would make up for the heartbreak you're dealing with.

And not to lessen the victory, but NYRB looked like ass that night didn't you think? It was a little embarrasing for me to watch. Hans Backe didn't even both to make the trip. But your boys were looking good. 4-0 against NY reserves can easily translate to a 1-0 win in the finals against a club that's actually trying. Just bummed the effing Sounders pulled away from my G's.

Just watch out for the USL-side Richmond... they're looking to make a statement.

The great news about Richmond making it to the semis is that it turns into a home game for us!

They're not looking much better right now. Down 3-0 to... Rapids? Not like Colorado is exactly a powerhouse this season.
