It was announced yesterday that [former Fire midfielder Chris Armas -- who played with the club from its inception in 1998 through 2007 -- will be inducted into the "Ring of Fire" Hall of Fame](http://chicago.fire.mlsnet.com/news/team_news.jsp?ymd=20090921&content_id=7077602&vkey=news_chf&fext=.jsp&team=t100) prior to Fire's October 22nd game against Chivas USA.
"As someone who once shared the pitch with Chris, I can say that he exemplifies the Fire's motto of Honor, Tradition and Passion," said Fire technical director and 2004 Ring of Fire inductee, Frank Klopas. "Chris is not only a former teammate, but a friend and I look forward to joining him on the field October 22 when he becomes a member of this great Fire tradition."
Armas, who is second on the all-time Fire assists list, is certainly very deserving of the honor of induction and the ceremony should be a good chance for Fire faithful to give him a nice send off.
Armas will join Peter Nowak, Frank Klopas, Bob Bradley and Peter Wilt in the "Ring of Fire."
