The Rush have compiled a 7-1 record at the Allstate Arena this season.
It seems like just yesterday I was in Rosemont on that cold March night when the Rush first started the 2012 season. Well in two days that season will come to a close as the Rush play their final home game of the 2012 AFL season. It will be Fan Appreciation Day at the Allstate Arena on Sunday afternoon. Also, The 100 Club of Chicago will be on hand as the Rush will honor Chicagoland’s police officers, fire fighters, and paramedics.
Former DePaul basketball standout Emmette Bryant will be taking pictures and signing autographs before the game. And Michael Jayko will serve as the game’s public address announcer. Jayko won a season long contest in which fans auditioned for a chance to takeover the booth for one day from regular P.A. Announcer Tommy Williams. But festivities aside there is a football game to be played, and a very important one at that.
The Rush will take on the Central Division leading San Antonio Talons, kickoff is after 3pm. The Rush are fighting for their playoff lives as they are out of the 4th and final playoff spot in the National Conference by just half a game. This is a must win if the Rush are to keep their playoff hopes alive, the Rush are also hoping for another miracle upset when the San Jose SaberCats take on the New Orleans Voodoo.
San Jose has the last playoff spot, plus they own the tiebreaker over the Rush. The Rush need to win and somehow New Orleans needs to win. This game will be the make or break game for the remainder of the 2012 season for the Chicago Rush. So I encourage you to come out on Sunday and support their Rush as they fight to keep their playoff streak alive. I will be in the press box for this one without a doubt.
