It's been pretty quiet as the season winds down but here are a few things to take note of over the next few weeks:
The MLS Disciplinary handed down a one game suspension and an undisclosed fine to Bakary Soumare for stepping on DC United forward Michael Seaton in the 9th minute of last Saturday's match. Soumare was whistled for a foul on the play but did not draw further discipline from referee Fotis Bazakos, who was positioned right in front of the play.
The Fire will be without Soumare and right back Lovel Palmer against Houston this Sunday. Palmer will miss the match due to yellow card accumulation.
17th Anniversary festivities
The Fire will celebrate the 17th anniversary of the club's founding on October 8 with a party to be held in Toyota Park's Stadium Club. The event will be attended by Fire players, coaches, and staff and will kick off with Section 8 Chicago's October board meeting at 6:00 pm. Admission is free with a suggested $10 donation to the Chicago Fire Foundation.
The black "flag themed" third kit contest winner will be available for purchase on October 1 but fans got a live look at it yesterday if they attended the Soccer & Style Fashion Show last night.

They're actually not bad as far as third kits go.
