  1. I thought Blake had several better saves than the one that’s up for Save of the Year. Notably his save on Heber…

  2. Is the Union going to sell any Supporters Shield winners gear?

  3. We just needed a 9 that could create a goal……….everything else looked pretty damn good from the USMNT. Tastey footy though………

  4. Nice to see the Union already reloading with a couple of homegrown signings. Don’t know much about either kid, but everything Curtin and Tanner have said is encouraging.

    • They are local as hell! Both their pops were a couple years older than me and they both could ball! Quinn just looks like a Sullivan without even looking at his last name! Lolz! Go get em boys! Chase that dream!

  5. The Open Letter of Curtin has a nice video of the last game, including video from inside the locker room. What a great day that was!!
