The Chicago Fire take their name from the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, but the two have more than a name in common. Both grew quickly: the soccer team in popularity, the disaster in number of square miles devastated. Both are greatly influenced by wind. Both started due to a woman and her cow. And much in the same way the Great Chicago Fire decimated the city’s architecture, the Chicago Fire burn their opponents and leave them on the field in a pile of emotional ashes. If you’re interested in seeing Chicago’s most popular soccer team, which was named after Chicago’s most popular disaster, keep reading about today’s amazing deal on access to the Miller Lite Party Deck at a Chicago Fire match.
