Marco Pappa will be a big key to today's game. With his rumored move to Wigan at the end of the year, he should have added motivation for the 2nd half of the season.(Photo by David Banks/Getty Images)
Today's game should be an incredible one. It's a big match for both teams, and if the Fire can bring 3 points away, it would move us into a tie for 3rd place in the standings (NY plays NE tonight). The Galaxy will of course be without David Beckham, and the Fire will entering the action without Sebastian Grazzini. The chance is definitely there for the Fire to put another W in the win column and further distance themselves from the middle of a crowded Eastern Conference.
The atmosphere at Toyota Park should be incredible today. Section 8 will be in full voice, the game is sold out, and it's a national ESPN audience. The stage is set for a very memorable day to say the least. Please join us today for all the fun. Lineups will be posted when announced. I am going with a 2-1 Fire win. Dom and Rolfe with the goals for Chicago. Keane with the LA goal. Let's go Fire!
