"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."
