Fired up for home opener

Fire veteran, rookie excited about 1st game at Toyota Park

Opening night in front of the
home folks never gets old for Fire veteran
 C.J. Brown,
while rookie Kwame Watson-Siriboe can't wait to experience it for the first
time.

The Fire begin their fifth Toyota Park season at
7:30 p.m. Saturday against San Jose. It's their first home game since last
November's shootout loss to Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer's Eastern
Conference title game.

"It‘s always exciting to be part of a home
opener, and the atmosphere is amazing," said Brown, who has been a part of
12 previous Fire home openers in venues ranging from old and new
 Soldier
Field
, Naperville's Cardinal Stadium and Toyota Park.

"We want to show the fans what the coach has
been trying to teach us."
