 Kieran Ruane

Kieran is from Lemont and currently a student at St. Norbert College. Kieran has been playing/following soccer his whole life, and the Fire have always been a big part of his fandom. Growing up a Chicago sports fan, there was always something special about having a local soccer team to support, which is what drew him to the Fire in the first place. Kieran has been hooked for as long as he can remember, and with the growth of the team and MLS as a whole, it’s great to see that things are looking up for the Men in Red.

Austin Bloomberg

I often have thoughts. Sometimes I write about them. I’m constantly grappling with spirituality, my innate privileges as a white male, and how to best fight for social justice. I like beer. I love my partner Tulia (and our two adorable kitties). Chicago has stolen my heart. And I’m obsessed with the Cubs.

Donald Kane

Alex Anderson

Chicago-native and Illinois grad, now living in Champaign. I am the athletic director and varsity basketball coach at a high school. If I’m not consumed with basketball, I’m more than likely watching Food Network.
