Miami FC fans know why Onandi Lowe is gone (attitude problems), why Rodriguez is called El Loco, that Romarios other nickname is Shorty, that the very cool drummers who give rhythm to games sit in the east-side stands. They also know for a new USL team, winning is not everything. (Hey, the Dolphins were 3-11 their first season; the Heat 15-67.) FC is competitive, but more important, the team has great fans. Heres a comment from an FC thread: The west side ... is a bit cooler ... depends on how many beers you drink. I had three beers in 25 minutes the other day and it was real cool! Heres another, from a blog: The score was 0-0, but it was an exciting game. Tropical Park is a beautiful place for a game -- though as popularity grows, a bigger venue will be needed. Join the gang at 4:00 p.m. when FC takes on the Virginia Beach Mariners. Tickets range from $6 (children) to $25. Call 305-377-2700, or visit www.miamifc.com.
