AVE MARIA, FL. The Fire caught flight to the first phase of preseason training on Sunday with one notable absentee.
Thursday marks the last day of training for the Fire in Bridgeview, and that also means the end of Austin Berrys first professional season.
Home field advantage is one thing, and the Fire has enjoyed its best season ever playing at Toyota Park. The Fire is 11-3-2 there going into Saturdays last regular season match against D.C.
"I'm not a guy that believes you've got to have a lot of experience to have success in the playoffs."
- Former N.Y. Giants QB Phil Simms
The Fires opponent in a Sunday road match has had a rocky season, and the focal point of it was a Chicago legend.
