Detroit City FC 4, FC Buffalo 0
DCFC Grant Chong (Luke Diener) 33′
DCFC Shawn Lawson (Knox Cameron) 61′
DCFC Austin Oldham 85′
DCFC Ian Mort OG 89′
This was a big game. One of the biggest in this young club’s history. And it had everything.
Going into the match, Le Rouge held an undefeated record of 8-0-0. FC Buffalo was also undefeated with a 7-0-1 record. It was the last regular season home match; the team would take to the road for its final three games.
A record breaking crowd of 1,895 attended on this hot afternoon. There was a lovely June wedding at halftime, and Le Rouge thanked its supporters by joining them in the stands after the match.
How you spend your money tells who’s first in your life and whom you really worship. Too often God is nowhere to be found. I get asked why God doesn’t answer prayer. Know this. He answers those that are faithful and give to his church. – Pastor Dugar, Summit Church, Phoenix, AZ The Tithe.
As Matt Hawkins writes in the Sunday School section that concludes this first volume collecting issues #1-4 of Image Comics’ The Tithe, the story focuses on bad people preying on well-intentioned Christians. Yes, Hawkins is an atheist, briefly covering his personal history of having grown up a Southern Baptist. But the comic is not an attack on religion insomuch as it is exposing that not all churches, particularly the mega-churches, have your best interests at heart.
Reminds me a little of Ray Stevens’ Would Jesus Wear a Rolex on His Television Show?

It was a friendly match (there’s no such thing as a friendly) this lovely Wednesday evening against the Columbus Crew Super 20’s. With an attendance of 1,073, the Crew-babies kept Le Rouge in check.
We came down early to have dinner at Harry’s. While waiting for our food, Illy Mack, a local artist, sketched me and Denise. A cool start to a nice evening of soccer.
