Great sports… for a Tuesday.

We were trying to find the Reds game on TV tonight. But on Fox Sports Ohio was game one of the Stanley Cup playoffs between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Columbus Blue Jackets. And the Reds were coming on as soon as the hockey game was finished. The problem was the hockey game became an epic five overtime thriller,..

I’m not a huge NHL hockey fan. But it was crazy that every time we tried to turn on the Reds game tonight, this hockey game was still going. We came back from walking the dogs, still going. We played ball and went upstairs, still going. And finally, Tampa Bay scored to take game one from Columbus in what turned out to be the fourth longest hockey game in the NHL history despite the Jackets goalie’s NHL record 85 saves…

And then it was time for the finals of the MLS is Back Tournament

And thankfully, Portland Timbers defeated Orlando City to lift the trophy…

I don’t mind the Portland Timbers. They’re probably my third favorite MLS team. But I do not care for Orlando City and I especially don’t care for Orlando City’s “star” player, Nani. I didn’t like him when he played in England for Manchester United, and I certainly don’t like now. Not at all. Not one bit. He’s just an entirely unlikable player. I’m really happy he didn’t win.

But other than Nani, the MLS is Back Tournament was so much fun. I watched every single match. And it was really terrific to have three soccer matches to watch each day for a couple of weeks during the group play. It was a great tournament. And I already miss it. I feel like I’m going through MLS is Back soccer tournament withdrawl right now. I hope they do some version of a tournament like this every season.

It was a really great sports night… for a Tuesday. 😀🏒⚽️🏆❤️

A wonderful start for Tuesday.

The sunrise this morning was a really pretty one…

I bet Mack was wondering what the heck I kept looking at…

And here’s what it looked like when I shared it on Instagram

It was pretty morning in our backyard too…

And good morning from Northside…

When Genifer went to lunch with her coworkers at Taste of Belgium, she also brought home a bag of blueberry Belgian waffles, and those waffles are delicious…

It was pretty this afternoon in our backyard as well…

While I was working this afternoon, Mack wandered into our office and set one of his squeaky toys on my leg and left…

And Bear was crashed out in Mack’s crate in our office all afternoon…

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. This one was Italian Sausage Penne with sun-dried tomato cream and sweet corn…

It was another really delicious dinner. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

After dinner, we shared a giant chocolate chip cookie that Genifer brought home with her from Currito…

Oscar likes laying under our dining room table while he waits patiently for us to finish eating dinner so he can go on his walk…

And good evening from Northside…

And then we wrapped up our Tuesday back in our backyard again to play more ball…

We had a pretty darn good Tuesday. 😀🗓️❤️
