There’s nothing better.

We were going to eat something at this afternoon’s final Reds game but the lines for food were really long. And nothing sounded better to us than an NYPD cheese pizza…

So when we got home, we ordered another NYPD cheese pizza and BBQ boneless wings. And they were delicious! 😀🍕🐔❤️

The final Reds game of the 2018 season.

Today was the final Reds baseball game of their 2018 season. We ducked in one of the side gates because the main gate at Crosley Terrace was just a sea of people. Everyone must have had the exact same thought as us, “Shoot, it’s the last Reds game of the season. We better go to the game today.” There were a bunch more people at this afternoon’s game than there were on Wednesday night. We headed straight upstairs to the terraces on the Fioptics District…

And then after a bit, we headed down to the terrace by the Bowtie Bar…

We got to see the final live mascot race…

Near the end of the game, Tucker Barnhart came in to play first base…

And the Reds lost 6-5 to the Pirates in the tenth inning…

After the ballgame, we went to hang out at the Fox Sports Ohio condominium…

It was another great season of Reds baseball. And where they might not have had the best season, they are always fun to watch. It’s going to be weird next week when we get home from work and try to find something to watch on tv. During baseball season, it’s a no-brainer. Just turn on the Reds game. I’m going to miss watching them. Hopefully next summer, we’ll be able to make it to more than just three games. Thank you Reds baseball for once again being the soundtrack of my summer. 😀⚾️❤️😍

How many days until pitchers and catchers report for spring training?

Thanks, Timehop!

I love this photo of Genifer. It popped up today in my Timehop. Thanks for all the wonderful memories Timehop! 😀🦕❤️

FC Cincinnati versus Indy Eleven.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY SEVENTEEN! Tonight was the final USL regular-season home game for our FC Cincinnati. Their next home match will be the opening round of USL Cup 2018. And after that, they’ll move on to MLS.

FC|C can tie the current USL record for consecutive matches undefeated with a win or a draw tonight. With our soon to be collector’s item tickets in hand, we headed out to Nippert Stadium to watch our FC Cincy take on Indy Eleven…

I just missed the team photo…

HERE WE GO…

It was 1-0 FC|C at the half, and that means… SPRINKLES!

Sprinkles had a new friend but I didn’t catch what his name was…

AND THERE’S THE FULL-TIME WHISTLE! 3-0 to FC|C!

And FC Cincinnati tied the USL record for most consecutive matches without a defeat at 22 in a row! The players celebrated while a small stage was set up for an onfield post-match ceremony with the presentation of some silverware for our USL regular season champions…

WHAT A NIGHT! FC Cincinnati plays away to Nashville SC next Saturday in the final match of the regular season. As regular season champions, FC Cincinnati gets home-field advantage throughout USL Cup 2018. Their first playoff match will be on Saturday, October 20th right here at Nippert Stadium. 😀⚽️🏆❤️

It’s a sign.

Seen and noted in Northside. 😀🦖❤️

57,999.

The odometer on our 2008 VW Jetta GLI rolled over 58,000 miles this morning taking Mack to the vet. And we needed gas in a hurry. 😀🚘❤️

Good evening from our backyard.

Later, we took the dogs out on a walk. I love the hill at the end of our street, especially at night. It’s so pretty…

Good evening from our backyard. And good evening from Northside. 😀🌄🐾❤️

Happy National Drink Beer Day!

Today was National Drink Beer Day! We went to Taft’s Brewpourium to celebrate…

It was a delicious way to celebrate a kind of silly holiday. 😀🍺❤️

We ❤️ Blue Jay.

We went to Blue Jay for breakfast/lunch late this morning. I would have called it brunch. But I reserve brunch for Sundays. Genifer wanted lunch and I wanted breakfast. And since it wasn’t Friday, I’m just going to call it breakfast/lunch…

Genifer got a five-way and french fries…

I got a sausage omelet with a flapjack…

YUM! We ❤️ Blue Jay. 😀🐦🥞❤️

The Alleys of Northside.

In between the main streets in Northside are a bunch of little alleys. I’m guessing they are used or were used so people could get to their garages or driveways behind their homes. But they seem to be in quite the state of disrepair. They are wonderful to look down but still kind of creepy enough to not wander too far down…

Someday when I don’t have anything else to do, I would love to ride my bike around Northside and photography all these little alleys and turn it into a book, The Alleys of Northside. It would also be really interesting to photograph them in different seasons and different times of the day. That would be interesting… to me. I find all these little alleys fascinating. I bet you there are all sorts of visual treasures down there. 😀📷❤️
