So, So Sweet

The Fire practiced in its new Bridgeview Stadium yesterday. Several pics of the event can be found here. The new digs look so, so sweet. There is something about a stadium, even when empty, that I find to be simply beautiful.

The home "opener" is Sunday, but that's only for season ticket holders, VIPs, and area residents. The official opener and celebration is June 25th. I have tickets and if I can borrow a digital camera for the day (and momentarily join the rest of the world in the 21st century) I plan to supply pics of the packed house. Should be a great time.

Absolutely beautiful! They got this right. Easily the best looking out of all the soccer specific stadiums that have been built to date.

The success of MLS depends on these stadiums and I hope DC gets theirs soon.

Brings a tear to my, it does.

I heard that the overhead parts are so high so that expanding with a second level would be possible someday. Hopefully, that becomes as a necessity at some point.

All the place needs now is a really great pub or two right across the stret.
