At the Rowdies on Friday. Here are some quick facts:
-Military appreciation night. A salute to them. Much respect.
-Rowdies wear shiny, hoopy, clown suits. No respect for them.
-First 500 fans get a team photo. I can't think of anything snarky to do with this, but maybe you can.
-They know we're coming, because it's officially the "Night of Champions"*
-They'll especially be watching Amani Walker and Matt VanOekel. They're scared.
-Rowdies Head Coach Ricky Hill:
"We respect Minnesota and know that it will be a difficult challenge Friday night. They are the defending NASL champions and are undefeated so far this season."
Now all the Stars have to do is reinforce the reasons they fear us and add a few more.

"At the end of the day, that's a soccer game." - Coach Lagos
