"We like to say there will be fireworks on and above the field at Invesco," says Outlaws spokesman Trent Nielsen. "Boston's a big rival for us they're pretty much the Beast of the East and we just beat them a few weeks ago, so I know they'll be out for redemption. If people haven't been out to see an Outlaws game yet or haven't been in a while, this is also a big chance to see our two hottest new players in action: We picked up Billy Bitter in the NCAA draft and recently traded for Peet Poillon, and together they've transformed our squad."
Nielsen's hoping for even bigger bragging rights after tonight's game: "Our Independence Day celebration is the event that typically breaks the Major League Lacrosse attendance record every year. Last year we had about 24,000 people in a torrential downpour. This year we're hoping for as many as 35,000 fans; it's a great way to reward our fans and introduce some new ones to the sport."
