Afternoon Notes

Hey everybody, thought I'd share a few bits of Fire related news with you to *spark* your Monday afternoon...

**Lowry up for Goal of the Week --**

Peter Lowry has been nominated for MLS Goal of the Week for his sliding right footed volley against Houston last night. Peter has some pretty stiff competition for the award (see Landon Donovan's strike... that was nasty) but his finish was one of the better ones of the week.

Check out all the nominated goals below...

**Blanco on cover of FIFA 2010 --**

This one goes out to all the video game players out there...

Every time you hit the sticks and play FIFA Soccer 10 (due to come out in the fall) you'll get to see the pretty face of one Cuauhtemoc Blanco, decked out in his Fire uni.

Fire fans can only hope that being on the FIFA cover doesn't carry the same jinx as being on the Madden cover, but only time will tell if Blanco -- who appears on the cover along with Frank Lampard and Sacha Klejstan -- gets through unscathed...

Check out a pic of the cover [here](http://web.mlsnet.com/images/2009/08/10/dcSbcMBG.jpg).

That's all for now, check out the blog later for more Fire discussion...

  • Sam, there's a rumor going around (i think it started with the Fire's facebook page according to the section 8 boards)that Bakary is heading to France but it said TBD. Is it happening soon or were they just restating the rumor heard a month ago?

  • In reply to Warren:

    Not sure about that Warren. But I'll certainly ask about it on Wednesday when I go to the Fire practice.

  • In reply to Warren:

    Correction: It started on Bakys facebook page.

    And thanks!
