I'd like to ask that everybody planning on coming to this Sunday's match to please get into the stadium early. Thanks to help from the FO and one unnamed Galaxy season ticket holder we are planning a special tribute/moment of silence in memory of Gunner's brother Jair, who was killed in Afghanistan on August 1st.

This special event will take place promptly at 5:02 pm, just before the National Anthem. We have a very nice banner to display during the moment of silence and will need everyone's help in pulling this off (it's quite large and heavy).

As you can imagine the schedule before kick off at Galaxy matches is very tight and this will happen on time. Members of Eddie's family will also be in attendance for this evening.

Please, please, please arrive early and lend a hand.

I'm normally the biggest perpetrator of hanging out in Lot 13 for one or two (Ok maybe 4) more beers, but for this I am heading in at 4:30 sharp.

Get there!

The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average.

A lot of time and effort went into this. Please get in the stadium early this time. It's the least we can all do.

I will personally close down lot 13 early and make people aware they need to be in their seats well before 5pm.

If you have a black LARS shirt wear it! If you have the blue or gray, that will be okay too.

it's taken me a while to come to terms
with jair's death.
last weekend i was in seattle visiting
jonathan and miguel
and jair came up in a conversation.
within a second, we all closed our mouths and
bowed our heads.
then we all told our "jair stories."
if you knew him
you had one.
everyone who came in contact with him had one.
i'm convinced of that.

i haven't posted about it because i mainly use
this board as a springboard to my normal asshole day.
but i knew jair and his son and his wife and his brother
and i have nothing but love for them in my heart.

jair can be summed up in some simple words from a
friend:
"he was the best, man."
those words came from clayton froom after
i called him with the bad news.

i'll leave it at that for right now.
i have so much more to say
but can't seem to find the words.


jair ruled.
