This is great news for me as I spend much of the summer in Peoria. The Fire will play their Open Cup game June 10th against either Cowlumbus or RSL at Bradley's Shea Stadium!

May be good for you, but I'm guessing for the majority of us, this totally sucks.

Well, this is certainly an interesting bit of goings ons....i'm def gonna try to make the trip as i've never even spent anytime in peoria....and of course i'd hate to miss the fire....

of course given it's a weekday- it may be a tough drive.....
Our friends will never walk alone.

June 10th is a Tuesday, and while I totally understand the sentiment that this kind of sux for a lot of people, I think it's a good oppurtunity to bring more fans into the game who never get a chance to see the Fire play.

I can attest to that! :)

That sucks. How the hell did this happen?
A drive of 3 hours 21 mins ? Might as well be on another planet.

Hell, I'm in Springfield, so it works alright for me. I'll see how many virgins I can bring to this.
(Easy now, by "virgins" I mean those who have never experienced the Fire/MLS)

If that's what they are thinking....LAME. A smarter move would be to bring the Blanco show to the north burbs not central Illinois.

For the record I'd rather see an Open Cup match vs anybody, than waste a bonus ticket on Jagiellonia.

I believe 200 seats have been held for us. I'll be taking time off work to make it. I hope 199 of you can join me.
