Good evening 133 ILLEGITIMATES – I apologize it took me so long to get this email out, but I had some issues locating the lists after the final home game, but luckily they were located. I wanted to set-up a mailing list up for STH’ers in 133 for us to discuss charity events, away travel, ILLEGITIMATES memorabilia and ticket prices in 2013. If you are on this list and would like to be removed, please let me know and I will be sure to take your email off the list. I tried to get every one’s email address, but inevitably I missed some, so please let me know if you know people that are not on the list that would like to be. Below are a few issues/events we will be discussing in the near future.
1 – On January 21st, 2011 the Sons of Ben will be hosting their 2nd annual Help Kick Hunger event at McFaddens (Citizens Bank Park). There are normally player appearances, food, drinks and music all while helping out a GREAT cause in the area some of us call our 2nd home – Details will be forthcoming!
2 – Ticket Price Increase – Many of you are aware that in 2013 the front office has indicated they will be increasing our ticket prices, but have yet to give us an actual number, but it is our belief that the prices will be increasing by AT LEAST $100 PER TICKET. We have already started working at combating this, but WE WILL NEED YOUR HELP. I am looking for ideas/reasons you think we could take to the front office to prevent this increase. We still have plenty of time to work with them on this, but we need to start acting now. The ILLEGITIMATES have a very good working relationship with the front office and we want to keep it that way, but we feel enough of you will lend your support in helping us keep our prices low. Please email me with any ideas/thoughts you have.
3 – Many of you know who I am, many do not. Myself Jeff Mitchell, Nick Cifelli and the Retzner’s (and many others) have been working towards making Section 133 the best section in the MLS. We do this because we love the Union and we love making 133 a great place for us to stand and cheer for our boys in blue! We are always looking for others to get involved in anything we do, please reach out to us if you would like to help out or have any questions or concerns.
One last note – if you want to pick-up a 133 shirt go to www.barktees.com and if you want a 133 scarf, let me know and I will be place another order once I get a large enough group to place one!
Can’t wait for March 18th!
