Matt Bird is back from his Colorado trip, and has some info on our opponent:
Well there is no place like home, but it’s another game so soon after our previous one so no rest for the wicked. Phoenix are a decent side this year, Drogba aside they have some quality with Asante and Cortez. Phoenix have won 4 games on the road this year too, so we really have to be on our game tonight. On the flip side of the coin, Phoenix also went out of Open Cup and have lost their last 2 league games so they are not coming into tonight in the best of form either.
Saint Louis FC sits in 10th, at 3-3-5

Charity Du Jour:
This week is American Diabetes Association. Get your Wilford Brimley on and make a donation!
Drums and capos: We march in 1/2 hour before kickoff. Anyone can join the march in! Drummers usually need assistance carrying in the drum stands, so if you can help out, see them as they organize prior to the march.
Tailgate: NO TAILGATE FOOD TONIGHT. The crew is taking the night off, so eat before, or go see Sugarfire at the Team’s tailgate for some delicious BBQ.
Newligans: If you’re new and this is your first game day, say hi! There will be several of our Newligan Cartel walking around, wearing badges showing their name on it. Feel free to grab one of them and introduce yourself; they’re wearing that badge as a way to indicate they’re there to help you join the crowd. There will be a Newligans table by the trailer in case you don’t see a badged member.
You also can exchange your ticket at their table for a wristband for the march in, so we can proceed through the gate more efficiently.
Merchandise: We will have the 2018 Louligan scarves and the 2018 This Is Silly! Podcast scarves. $20 per scarf, cash or credit. There aren’t many left of the podcast scarves, so get them while you can!
The red line will be the march to the game. The march starts 30 minutes before kickoff (7:00pm).
