SB Nation Fire Perspective: Hot Time in Old Town


Fire up that illegal stream completely legitimate video feed from an official, reputable source, hide this thread behind your Excel spreadsheet and open wide for some soccer. The Fire sit one point behind the Red Bulls in the East (who sit one point behind D.C. United and four points behind Sporting Kansas City), so today's matinee raises more questions than just "how badly will Dax McCarty get sunburned?" and "how embarrassingly low will attendance be?"
