Fire in Conference Finals

By Benjy Lipsman in News on Nov 4, 2005 8:28PM

2005_04_sports_chicago_fire_logo.gifThe Chicago Fire may feel a bit neglected around Chicago of late. While charging through the playoffs they just couldn't compete for attention with the World Series and the White Sox. It's kind of like the last Blackhawks appearance in the Stanley Cup finals... that just happened to coincide with the Bulls first second championship.

Now that the Sox victory parade's over and Ozzie Guillen is showing off the hardware in Venezuela, maybe people will finally tune in as the Fire play the New England Revolution for the Eastern Conference title and a spot in the MLS Cup on November 13th. Will another title be coming home to Chicago?
