Matt Bird has some brutal opinions on our opponent:

RGV have not won a game in their last nine, drawing 3 and losing 6.

We have to capitalize on this. RGV lost at Oklahoma City, so they can certainly lose here if we do our jobs.
We tied with them down in Texas at the beginning of the year. Their top goalscorer is Aldo Quintanilla on 4 goals. That’s all I really know on RGV, I mean why would I ever watch their games? People down there don’t watch them, why should I?

Charity Du Jour:

This week is Almost Home STL.  Almost Home STL is a resource for young mothers to help them become self sufficient and provide for their children.  The Louligan Ladies chose this charity as their Charity Du Jour for this season; they’re also taking over the tailgate food to help raise donations!

Louligan Cartels:

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: The Louligan Ladies have taken over the tailgate this week to raise donations for their Charity Du Jour collection! Curry night with Indian and Thai Curry. Chicken, Beef, Jasmine rice, and Basmati rice on the side, with a Malia dessert!  (There will be different sauces for those that don’t do curry.)  Don’t forget your collectible cup for $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).
