Saturday I went to my first ever Major League Soccer game in Columbus, Ohio and watched the Chicago Fire defeat the Columbus Crew one - nil.

It rained the entire 90 minutes and since we neglected to check the weather forcast for Ohio we were caught without so much as an umbrella. Brandon Stern, however, stayed nice and dry under his parka and track jacket.

My favorite part of game was the Chicago Hooligans who drove 7 hours to watch the game. This group of 60-70 diehard fans led organized cheers for the entire game (most of which were adapted from Green Street Hooligans). The most humorous/ controversial cheer included the line "We wear red/we wear white/ we are F***ing dynamite"- which ticked off more than one soccer mom with little kids.
