MLS Playoffs: Revolution at Fire

7 November 2008 No Comment

With prior plans on Saturday night and the Chicago Bears game to attend on Sunday afternoon, the Chicago Fire’s home game in the conference semifinals fell on the only day of the week I could have attended – Thursday night.

I had considered eating at Fire Station Pub before the match since Nicole was not attending but I called one of my friend’s to see if they were attending. They were and said I could get a ride to Toyota Park. The ride from Wrigley Field to Toyota Park took over an hour so we did not have much time to tailgate in the Toyota Park parking lots.

Obtaining Tickets
With 15 minutes left until kick off, we were still in line to park. 15 minutes before the game is usually the perfect time to try and find a free ticket. The main reasons being fans who do not want (or know how) to sell their extra tickets are heading into the game and would rather give away their ticket than wasting it.

I ended up buying a single ticket for $10 – the cheapest ticket they had at the box office was $30.

The Game
The Fire defeated the New England Revolution 3-0 to advance to the Conference Finals. As with the Champions League’s knockout round, the winner of MLS Conference Semi-Finals is determined on total goal aggregate of a home and home series.
