Article Posting Guidelines are spelled out here. Thanks
Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

Two Questions:

1. How did Wonderwall come to be adopted as the supporters' anthem?

2. What is the origin of our affection for Cajun Creole Hot Nuts (other than because they're damned tasty)?

1. It's actually not a supporters anthem, Coach Craig started singing it in the locker room and then after a win two seasons ago the team started coming over to the stands to sing it to us. Now we sing it with them, and to them.

2. They are sold at the NSC.

Actually, Hot Nuts are sold at the NSC thanks to the tireless efforts of Neal/Lightning Striker to get them to sell them. Neal introduced them some time around 2004 or maybe 2003 to the supporters group and basically his enthusiasm was catching, especially with such tasty foodstuffs. That and it's fun to sing about hot nuts.

Fair enough!

Perhaps we should pursue a sponsorship deal of some sorts with CCHN LLC. This could be a real money maker for the club.

You know, a FAQ/History section on the Dark Clouds website is a great idea.

Email/facebook/pm me or post here if you have things we should add.

I'll weed out the crap and try to make it look nice.

A History/FAQ would be awesome for the zealous, yet recently converted.

bornwithatail_ It'd be hepful if you kept track of all things you did not know about so we have a source of non-insider knowledge to populate the FAQ.
