Just curious if anybody on this board went to the game and could give a brief review of the match? How did Milwaukee look against the Fire? Was there a pretty good pro-Milwaukee crowd or was it made up of mostly Fire fans?

If the attempt was to show "we could play with the big boys", it was a failed attempt (final score 4-1 (own goal)in favor of Chicago). The attendance figure was published as 3,400. It would be hard to estimate how many Fire fans were in attendance - even a small group of them Barnburners can be quite vocal! The game also received more promotion in Chicago than in Milwaukee.
