FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!
Real photo postcard of the University of Illinois’ soccer team, 1910.
Homer Dahringer is seen smiling in the back row, third from left.
He sent the postcard to his sister Edna who was living in Los Angeles
at the time. He wrote: “This is the new game I am playing now.
We played against St. Louis and lost 5-0. Then we played Chicago
at Chicago and won 3-0. Today we played Chicago down here
and won 6-1. This was our last game this year. I am going home
for Thanksgiving soon.
Wish you were going to there too.”
Signed, Homer “Darrie” [his nickname].

You can say that again.
He may not have been the fastest player on our squad, or the best defender, but he was fucking clutch. He was always there when it counted, and he never gave up. There was a certain ferocity to his play, and the strength of his belief, that I, for one, will sorely miss.
Add in the fact that he is a genuinely nice guy, and always had time for the fans? Yeah. We can sign another right back, but we can’t replace Dan Gargan.
