Good evening from Northside.

We love hanging out in our little backyard. 🙂

Describe your perfect date…

Ha ha. 🙂

It’s what’s for dinner.

We continued our new grill’s trial by fire tonight with some burger and hot dogs…

YUM! We’re really loving our new grill. 🙂

Slow down and grill.

My parents surprised us this weekend with a brand new Weber Grill…

Ho cool is that? Just look at that this beauty. And wasting no time, we promptly decided to break it in this afternoon…

We grilled up some spicy Jamaican Jerk chicken breasts…

And Genifer made cornmeal festival to go with our Jerk chicken…

Just like Scotchies! It was such delicious stuff!

Thank you so much, mom & dad! I know we’ll put this new grill to really, really good use over and over again! 🙂

FC Cincinnati versus Louisville City FC.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY THREE! This evening we ventured over to Nippert Stadium to watch FC Cincinnati take on their closest geographical USL rival, Louisville City FC…

We sat in general admission for the very first time so we could all sit together. It’s not a bad view from over there…

 

The march of the supporters groups into The Bailey…

It was a pretty chilly evening. It wasn’t the coldest match we’ve ever been to but it was nowhere near the warmest either…

SPOILER ALERT: Djiby would get sent off later in the match; a straight red…

HERE WE GO!

LCFC snatched the early lead…

And that’s the way the match would stay for the rest of the first half. Back and forth. Back and forth. But no more goals from either side… SPRINKLES!

I just don’t know what to say. There really aren’t words. I think I’m mostly just really disappointed because I almost wore the same exact thing but I didn’t think I’d be warm enough on such a chilly evening…

😐 🦄  Anyway, there was another good crowd packed into Nippert for tonight’s match…

 

And the second half is underway…

GOAL FC|C! 1-1!

And that’s the way the match would finish, 1-1. That’s better than a loss. The matches are always a bunch of fun to watch live. The atmosphere is always incredible. And it was a blast to get my parents out to their very first FC|C match. But Djiby got sent off so there’s that, which will be a fun plot twist for the team to try to deal with…

FC Cincinnati’s next home match isn’t until May 13th when they welcome Orlando City B to Nippert Stadium. We’ll see you there! 🙂

UPDATE: Apparently, Djiby bit or tried to bite someone during the match and has been suspended for an additional five matches.

From the USL:

FC Cincinnati’s Djiby Fall has received a six-game suspension and undisclosed fine. It consists of a one-game suspension and fine for the red card for serious foul play, and an additional five-game suspension and fine for major game misconduct during last week’s match against Louisville City FC. Fall’s suspension runs through June 3, pending any schedule changes.

[UPDATE] – The USL has provided further clarification to its disciplinary report for Week 5. Djiby Fall’s five-game suspension and undisclosed fine for Major Game Misconduct is for biting an opponent during the match on April 22, 2017.

Northside nubs.

We hung out in Northside this afternoon. First, we walked to Boswell’s Alley for a great lunch while we watched some of the Reds-Cubs game before heading down the street to Urban Artifact’s second-anniversary party

We had a really great time. There were soooo many good beers. Afterwards, we walked over to Second Place so my parents could taste a little sample their bourbon and Arnold Palmer slushies. It was a fun afternoon in Northside before we Grabbed an Uber to over to Nippert Stadium to watch FC Cincinnati take on Louisville City FC. 🙂

It’s what’s for dinner.

My parents came down from Michigan to visit us for the weekend. And they brought a couple of delicious Pizza King pizzas with them for us to enjoy for dinner…

Omigosh. Pizza King pizzas are some of the best pizzas around! Taken with Instagram. 🙂

We ate this.

We had LaRosa’s calzones for dinner tonight. And they were pretty dang awesome!

YUM! Taken with Instagram. 🙂

FC Cincinnati versus Tampa Bay.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY TWO! Tonight was FC Cincinnati’s second home match of the season. They were taking on the Tampa Bay Rowdies at Nippert Stadium…

The supporters groups started marching in to fill up The Bailey…

HERE WE GO…

Tampa Bay Rowdies scored first on this rocket from about thirty-five yards

FC|C answered back when Harrison Delbridge headed the ball in from a corner

Oh, and it was University of Cincinnati night at tonight’s match…

There were two minutes of time added on…

At the half, the match was all knotted at one…

There were some great banners in The Bailey tonight…

Two of my favorites were Fiona the baby hippo and the three-way right next to it…

SPRINKLES!

Both teams had some good chances but neither team could manage to find the back of the net in the second half. And the match of ended in a 1-1 draw.

I missed the snapping the photo but tonight’s match was played in front of a crowd of 15,227 – the 12th-largest crowd in FC Cincinnati history. On a Wednesday. And that’s still 3,000+ people more than Columbus Crew drew last weekend. On a Saturday.

FC Cincinnati’s next match is at home on Saturday, April 22nd against Louisville City FC. We’ll see you there! 🙂

FC Cincinnati’s new team shop.

This afternoon I walked down to Fourth Street to check out the brand new FC Cincinnati Team Shop. The old FC Cincy shop located under FC|C Headquarters, and was pretty much a large coat closet stuffed with a few t-shirts, sweatshirts and jerseys…

The new FC Cincinnati Team Shop is located at 43 East Fourth Street, just down the street, kind of kiddie-corner to FC Cincinnati HQ…

It’s a pretty sweet shop. I can’t wait until they get a wider selection of shirts, sweatshirts and accessories. It’ll also be nice when they can actually keep all the sizes in stock. They selection was pretty picked over ahead of tomorrow night’s match with Tampa Bay. And there wasn’t an FC|C blackout t-shirt to be found in the store for Saturday’s blackout versus Louisville City. Still, it’s a pretty cool little team shop. Definitely more professional and legit than it used to be. They even have a jersey customization station where you can add player names and numbers to the back of your FC|C Nike authentic jersey to make it even more authentic…

Next time you’re in the Central Business District, make sure you check out the new FC Cincinnati Team Shop. 🙂
