The problem was with all the smoke from the stupid fucking pyro nobody at the stadium saw it. I swear the people who run this team are too fucking stupid to survive. And the first few minutes of the game were shit because the place was covered in a cloud of smoke. But they got to set off more explosions than the bombing of Baghdad. Idiots.


Literally the most negative dude I have ever come across. Seek help. You won't see 50 at this rate.

Seriously, some of y'all need to switch to decaf or something:

That's great but I am not saying they acted out of malice, they acted without thinking. This was literally the most important tifo we have ever done and unless you were on that side of the stadium you couldn't see a thing. I was super pissed because I went to the other side of the stadium specifically to get a picture of it and the pyro prevented me from seeing it, much less getting a picture. They should've thought this out.

How long have you been on Metrofanatic?
Edit: I checked: 5+ years.
Mike's not even in my top 10 for despondent fans, although some of the classic commentators have reduced their contributions in recent years or vanished entirely.
Hyperbole aside, Mike was legitimately upset that he couldn't get an opposite-field view and photo of the tifo. He was in 101 pre-game, and told me that he was going to the north side uppper deck to take photos. He was obviously unhappy with the smoke. I taped the game, and the broadcasters blamed the delayed start on the smoke, and were still talking about it 15 minutes into the game.
Personally, I was disappointed that I did not see any images of Glenn's tifo on the broadcast. A lot of heartfelt effort went into creating it, and even if it wasn't discussed, it could have been shown. I felt that a conscious effort was made to avoid showing the South Ward on TV while the tifo was up.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

The smoke was a result of doing something special for pride night and damned if you do, damned if you don't I guess. Maybe weather conditions made it linger longer too, I'm not sure

They acknowledged Glenn's passing on the MLSSoccer website Extratime live podcast. they showed the tifo. That's MLS HQ, folks.

Nice gesture, at 42:10 of the podcast.
More than our own club or MSG did.
Stephen Keel sighting as well.

Also interesting to hear that games in Chicago are now selling out. Apparently Bridgeview isn't that hard to get to, when the team is winning.

Small world.
At the airport in Cincy this morning, someone saw our group and asked if we knew Glenn! She is friends with his niece, who had sent her the photo of the tifo.

Props to those who stopped by yet another salute to Glenn yesterday, at one of his favorite local bars.
You know who you are. 🍻

Can't believe it's been a year already. He really was the ambassador of the ESC and like many of you he was one of the first people I met in Lot 16A. I was also fortune to move close-by  and, over the last year and a half of his life, got to hang with him a couple times a week at the local watering hole. Miss you brother.

Calcio was welcoming to us crew of newbie kids back in 16A. To be honest we were all a bit nervous until he gave us big bear hugs after a goal. He was an incredibly kind soul, and the very first person to make me feel like a member of ESC. Calcio was a legend within ESC.
