I wish, but after visiting briefly with one of the owners it's apparent that the concessions are controlled by the county....

pirates smuggle, however.....

Yep.  They kept the basic logo scheme from Sonny's old team... http://www.bostonavenueathleticclub.com/

We're putting together a group of certifiable lunatics... https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tulsa-Athletics-Supporters-Group/557946457578457?fref=ts

Well, at least my shirt was on tv... http://www.kjrh.com/dpp/sports/local_sports/professional-soccer-team-to-move-to-tulsa-play-as-tulsa-athletics
Evidently, I have a face for radio...

We'd love to have some great tailgates, but knowing the county, we'll probably need to have them in the Lowe's parking lot... doh.

We were thinking about having our first supporters group meeting at Fassler Hall, but were told that place is a sausage fest.   Cool

Depends on if you're asking about the new NASL... http://www.nasl.com/index.php?id=13
They currently have 8 teams in a split season, NY Cosmos will start competing in the second half of the season... but by 2014 the league will have 12 teams.

The NPSL technically has 61 teams, and we're in the South Central Division.  http://www.nationalpremiersoccerleague.com/teams/index_E.html
Because everything is on a low budget, our 12-game schedule will involve 2 home and 2 road games against opponents in our division... 1 team in Dallas and 2 teams in Houston.
There are playoffs at the end of the season... tickets are $5 and $10 and maybe even cheaper if you'd like to stand and cheer through the entire game...

Gotta start somewhere.   Smiley

Great interview on 1430, looks like some big news coming up!

Announcement was scheduled for today, but will likely be bumped to next week in deference to the tragedy in Boston.

Grass is getting greener.... one month to opening day....
