Sean John's Air Miles

+

"Sean Johnson is a well-traveled 22-year-old. Having seen the Great Pyramids at Giza before even joining the Fire as part of the 2009 U.S. U20 World Championship team, Johnson has traveled far and wide through his first two professional offseasons, though this past one would outdo most world footballers."

Fire Fan Tifo Crew Host Two Pole Workshop

+

What: Two Pole Workshop Where: ChiTown Futbol, 2255 S Throop St Chicago, Illinois 60608 When: Sunday, 26 February, 3pm to 6pm (and probably later…) Who: All Fire fans Cost: None! "The Blues Brothers. Stewie. Miss O’Leary’s cow. McBride as GI Joe. Pop culture and myth, twisted and colored in support of the Chicago Fire Soccer Club. These images are painted on fabric and mounted on two poles, held up proudly at Toyota Park (or on the road) by the creator to show their personal take on Chicago Fire fandom and imagery that means something to them. It’s a way for passion, wit and creativity to be shown by Fire fans in the stands."

"This is my second Chicago Marathon in a row and once again I have decided to raise money for the Chicago Fire Foundation. I plan on beating my previous time by at least an hour. Help me help children."

El Guapo's New Orleans Road Trip Report

+

"Just a week before the preseason game against Real Espana in New Orleans I was asked if I wanted to join in a 14 hour road trip with Section 8 On Tour (S8OT) regulars like Greek Pete, Giaco, Josue, and THE Ben Burton. How the hell could I say no? Now I've traveled to Portland, New York, Toronto, Denver, Seattle, Kansas City, Columbus, Peoria, and Madison for regular season games, playoff games, and Cup finals. This was the first time I traveled over 1,500 miles for a preseason game. It was the Fire: That's all I needed to know."

Barcelona initially unconvinced that Leo Messi would succeed as a pro

1

"Editor's note: The following is an exclusive extract from Graham Hunter's new book, Barca: The Making of the Greatest Team in the World. Rosario, Argentina, 2000. Leo Messi is 12 years old and, although coveted by both Newell's Old Boys and River Plate, neither club can afford the approximate $1000 per month across two years for the growth hormone treatment that will correct a deficiency and allow him to reach his natural height at a normal rate of growth. His father, Jorge Messi, had persuaded his employers and another local business to sponsor the initial cost of treatment, but that, too, has become unsustainable."

"Mi objetivo final es vivir en Chicago"

+

"Anunció su retiro hace unos meses atrás. Dejó las filas de su querido Motagua después de una mala campaña, el final de la carrera de Iván Guerrero había llegado. Pero, a sus 34 años al "guerrero olanchano" todavía le queda pasión por el fútbol y ganas de surcar la banda. Ahora tiene la oportunidad de regresar al Chicago Fire de la MLS, donde ya militó antes."

Iván Guerrero lucha por un espacio en el Fire

"La pelea que varios elementos están librando en el campamento de pretemporada del Chicago Fire puede resultar desgastantes para los jugadores, pero para Frank Klopas y su equipo de trabajo, es el arranque ideal a la etapa de preparación. "

The Name on the Front of the Jersey

+

"In most American sports, fans have learned to block out the countless corporate partnerships inked by their favorite teams. Only the most deranged of fans knows the identity of the Official Ambulance Provider of the New Orleans Saints, or choose a cell phone carrier based on who bought naming rights to their team’s arena. While our brains’ ability to develop an ad filter allows us to still enjoy a sporting event despite the endless parade of brand name shout-outs, it does have its limits. The jersey, in all other sports save the WNBA, is sacred ground, where the proposal of anything beyond a tasteful swoosh or three-stripe pattern on the lapel causes fans to freak out as though the McDonald’s arches were being painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. But in MLS, the jersey sponsor isn’t just accepted, it’s expected." Very good read from The Classical's Rob Mitchum. Bonus: some quotes from HTIOT's Tweed Thornton are in the article as well.

Chicago Fire Rumor Mill: Pavel Pardo Re-Signs

1

Iván Cañada is reporting that the Chicago Fire have re-signed Pavel Pardo and he will be playing with the team next year. "Pável Pardo permanecerá en el Chicago Fire al menos para la siguiente campaña. El mexicano apenas renovó su contrato con el club de la MLS." It always has seemed like a mere formality to get him to re-sign but it would be nice if it is actually done and out of the way in time for SuperDraft. We'll have more as it develops.
