Listen, here's the thing: This whole community? The entire enterprise of caring passionately about this soccer club? It's about you.
I know. Take a moment to let it sink in; it's a lot. You are at the very center of the Fire experience. It's all about you. The chants, the tifo, the moments of power and grace, the heartbreak, the joy: You. It is all about you.
Thing is, you gotta share it. If you want to stay at the center of this, you simply have to share. Give it away or it goes away.
And that's where Hot Time in the Old Town comes in - because, for some of you, sharing your feelings through words or pictures comes naturally. Maybe you write blank verse about Chris Rolfe. Maybe you just finished the libretto to your art-rock opera about Johan Cruijff. Or maybe you're burning to see some coverage of the Red Stars, bitterly aware that newspapers seem to dole out column-inches with a tweezer for women's sports.
