Tifo Painting on Wednesday

Back-From-The-Dead-Tifo_2017

If you haven’t heard yet, the Hounds and WQED are teaming up to celebrate the greatness that is Fred Rogers at Saturday night’s game. We’d be crazy to let such a moment pass without a tifo to contribute. The design is made and fabric has been readied, now we just need to paint it, which is where all of us get involved.

Tifo painting is scheduled for this Wednesday (the 13th) at the normal spot. If you don’t know where the normal spot is, don’t worry. Contact us for the address. It’s somewhere in the city, so its accessible for everyone. We’re going to start at 3pm. If that’s too early for you, not a problem. We would expect a majority of people to arrive later, so just make it there when you can. We’ll update our progress on twitter,…



GAME 12 RECAP: The Richmond Redemption

Andy-Rain

We’re back on track kids! Maybe. One step at a time. On Saturday night the Hounds went down toa soggy Richmond and picked up a much needed win to cap off a hella busy stretch of schedule before a nice two week break.

Most of the game was a slog. The soaked field killed any momentum the ball had on the ground, and in general play was slow and a bit meandering. From a statistical perspective the Hounds had a solid first half, managing 10! shots in the general vicinity of the goal. Only one of them was actually on target, and going into the second half it felt an awful lot like de ja vu from Wednesday game. Chances a plenty but nothing to show for it. You could hear waves of groans across Twitter as each shot or header…
