  1. Is it just me, or does anyone else miss afternoon matches? I can’t remember the last time the Union had a game in the daytime.

    It’d be nice to fill the early/late season with a few earlier matches.

      Hilly, I miss going to 1-2 midday games/season as well. However, the front office surveys STH’s every year about their experiences, including preferences for days of the week and times for games. The responses must be strongly tilted towards evening games. But I’d still love to see them throw in afternoon game once in a while.

    • I believe the New England game on November 8 (regular season finale) is a 3:30 game…although since it is after daylight savings ends, it will end after dark.

    • Dude, standing up at the Captain Morgan’s deck( I don’t know what it’s called now) during an afternoon summer scorcher……sipping on a gin and tonic……..watching the shape below…..was awesome! I loved it! Afternoon matches rock!

  2. Hahahahaha! SPUCK FURS!!!!!!!
