Some tough ones there...
1.Peter Nowak -
2.Nike Town
3.Club Lago, I'd like to think that anyway.
4. Tough, after how many drinks? How about 'Can you help my daughter with a job?' But I'm thinking its much worse than that.
5. Brian Bates?
6. Garnett heart attack.
7. No idea, not sure I remember getting in.
8. Yikes...En Fuego...my minds full of Ole stuff from later years.
9. You'll be glad to know it's still the meeting place for Fire alumni about every 3-6 months - Brehon and I still go now and then to make sure everythings running correctly.
10. 50,000 with the press event in the Bears Den.

No questions about Bombaleo at Deja Vu on Thursday nights? Or that hard rock band Boston? Or the first of several illegal Canadian interns?

Some great questions.....

1. Peter Nowak - What professional boxer did show up at an after-game party at Planet Hollywood?

2. The correct answer is Niketown, but which Fire employee set the press conference up becasue he used to work there?

6. Dan never made it to the post-game celebration. Elizabeth Low had the Rothenberg Trophy dropped on her shoulder.

7. I was only concerned about myself getting in to the post-game party.

8. No idea- I am going with En Fuego as well.

9. Brehon

10. 3,000 Bulgarians to each game- Stevie D would be the rep. Wasn't that priest involved in the truck license scandal?

More questions from 1998-

Which employee bet that if the Fire would win MLS Cup 1998 he would swim in the team hotel's fountain?

When the Fire played the Columbus Crew for the 1998 US Open Cup, where was the game originally scheduled? Why did it move?

3) Before the Fire had an office in Chicago, where was Peter Wilt taking phone calls? pjw: at home in WFB...better trivia is Fire's office prior to the Equitable Building was at US Soccer!
4) What was the most awkward question then-president Bob Sanderman asked then-GM candidate Peter Wilt in an elevator?

pjw: "So, do you like to drink?"

5) Which player trade was completed over the phone during a pregame Milwaukee Brewers' tailgate? pjw: i suppose i should know this one, but i'm not sure...i'll go with Manny Lagos for Paul Dougherty and Sam George. One of those rare deals that didn't help either team....also, the only trade Bob and i ever disagreed on.

7) Which Sun-Times contest winner DIDN'T get into the post-game celebration? pjw: Piotr Nowak: "Preki, stop pinching the sponsor's ass." Oh, different party.

Vince's:

good times all.

here are a few more:

A) Who sent Allison two dozen red roses to the Equitable Building office?

B) What letter in the "PARKING" sign was shot out in the Squire moving day scuffle?

C) What is the name of the longest courted, shortest tenured employee in Fire history? Bonus points - what are the ingredients in the drink named after her?

Air Jordan

It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about. Do you agree?
