Jorge Campos? HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAAA..... No really. Your killing me here.
The Fire were fantastic in several years and have continued to win Championships or been very close in several seasons. The USOC IS domestic silverwear, and we're the Kings of The Cup. The teams from 2005-2009 were fantastic, and got to the semi-final for 3 years running. Those were great teams.....but you may be looking at things through some rose-coloured glasses to think that the only year they were good was their first year. It just means you made minimal investment or are only a glory-hunter of a fan (as far as I'm concerned). The whole "call me when they win something" is a horrible way to support the local side. But hey, to each his/her own.
If when this gets re-pinned, having it as a general introduction for new folks would be cool--we could even come up with a few basic questions like what teams/leagues they follow, which ones they don't, fav player, if they are in a supporters group, first professional match attended, what made you a fan, etc. etc.
Funny part about tying is that we're not losing.
But for the standards the Fire faithful have, it certainly feels like a losing season....ugh.
