Matt Bird has some thoughts on our former captain, now playing for our opponent:
Tulsa, whilst on a resurgence since they’ve switched coaches, are obviously not the best team in the league and we should, all things considered, be nailed on for a win. That said, you know as well as I, that any team with Ivan Mirkovic in the midfield is going to be a battle. That worries me somewhat, seeing as our midfield is a bit leg weary right now. Thankfully, Tony and Wal are back to lend a hand to go toe to toe with Ivan. No matter the result, I do hope Mirko gets the reception he deserves.

Charity Du Jour:
This week is Missouri Humane Society. Not only are they a great service to the area when it comes to dogs and cats, they’re also the charity that Sgt. Craig Kriska has chosen. For those that don’t know, Craig is our STL County officer that is in our corner helping keep the peace. The Kriska family lost their son,82nd Airborne Division Paratrooper PFC Justin Kriska recently. In lieu of flowers, the family requested donations to the Humane Society. So we are taking care of our own this week. Please be generous, as Craig always has our back, and we have his.
We also will have a STLFC Pride Mission Taco jersey signed by the entire team for raffle. Find one of our volunteers with the raffle tickets to get a chance to win the signed jersey. Tickets are $1 each, six for $5.
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: It’s summer in St. Louis, so that means cookout! This week we will have brats…the pineapple brats that we took to Evansville that were amazing! We’ll have the fixin’s, plus the cookout appropriate cole slaw and potato salad. The free beer will be Paddy Shack Red from Kirkwood Station; the collectable cups will be $5.
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).
