Live and in person! It’s the only way to be. Your TV is not your friend, no matter how hard you want that relationship to work. It’s all take, take, take and no give. But if you can’t make it for what is surely a poor reason, watch the match live on YouTube right here:


We posted a by-the-numbers preview yesterday. Check it out if you haven’t already. Short version: Bethlehem Steel aren’t very good, and this is a game City should win. From a Louisville perspective, things need to improve. The attack is still, well, impotent, and the passing leaves much to be desired. I can’t begin to guess what James O’Connor’s Random Lineup GeneratorTM is going to spit out for this game, but what this team needs is a consistent way to connect the ball from the middle of the field to the attack that doesn’t involve hopeful balls from the wings directly to the opposition keeper. Fingers crossed!


Flugtag is today, so tailgating might be tough. Join us at the Troll Pub or Against the Grain or wherever else you fancy before the game! We march from 2nd and Washington starting at 7 with drums and maybe some smoke and lots of singing. Also, look for Brian Davis because he apparently is buying shots for everyone or something. Must be 21 or older to get a shot. Supplies may be limited. Brian Davis may be limited.
