Soccer Saturday.

There were a bunch of great soccer matches slated for later today. But first things first, this morning we had to do some yard work. We trimmed the bushes, pulled some weeds and mowed the grass in our little front yard…

We worked on our backyard a bit too. Before last night, before mowing today, and finally the beautiful after shot…

And we wrapped up just in time to watch the Champions League final. The result was kind of disappointing with Real Madrid beating Juventus 4-1. I thought it would have been a much more competitive match. But the lone Juventus goal was one for the ages. But 4-1 is still a little bit sad trombone.

Afterward, we walked down to Second Place to watch our FC Cincinnati play away to Rochester Rhinos

FC Cincy rested most of their starters, opting to go with mainly a second squad and as a result had a really hard time generating any sort of real offense and lost 1-0. The loss snaps FC|C’s four-match winning streak. They play another three home matches in the next seven days starting this Saturday when they welcome the Charlotte Indepence to Nippert Stadium. That match is then followed by the big #MLS2Cincy US Open Cup Hell Is Real Ohio derby match against Columbus Crew on Wednesday and then another home USL match this time against the first-placed Charleston Battery two weeks from today.

Soon after the FC Cincinnati match, the USMNT played a friendly against Venzelua. We made it home just after the kick-off. And that match ended 1-1. But the USMNT pride jerseys were pretty awesome. I might just have to look into ordering one of those for myself. They were some of the sharpest uniforms the USMNT has worn in quite a while. In fact, they’re my US favorite jerseys dating back to the old “sash” jerseys from the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. And I’m probably well overdue for a new USMNT jersey. ⚽️🏳️‍🌈

And even though not one team I was cheering for managed to win today, it was still a great afternoon and evening of soccer. 😀 ⚽️ ❤️
