We have our tickets!

We’ve already received our tickets in the mail for a couple of upcoming FC Cincinnati matches are going to be huge. HUGE! First up is the massive Fith Round US Open Cup match at Nippert Stadium against the Chicago Fire of MLS…

And we’ve also received our tickets for this season’s incredible international friendly when FC Cincinnati welcomes Valencia CF of Spain’s La Liga to Nippert Stadium…

And here are our tickets in all their spectacular soccer glory…

To say that we are just a little bit excited for these matches might be the biggest understatement of the season. 😀❤️⚽️

Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside. 😀

Slow down and grill.

We fired up the grill again this evening…

We made some chicken breasts, bacon & cheddar stuffed burgers from Clifton Market and cheddar hotdogs…

It was a beautiful night in our backyard for grilling…

Those bacon & cheddar stuffed burgers from Clifton Market are out of this world…

And then we took Oscar on his evening walk to work off some of our delicious dinner…

It was the perfect Tuesday night at home. 😀🐔🍔🌭🏡🌳❤️

Two years ago today…

Two years ago today, we went and looked at wedding rings for the very first time…

Setting in motion the smartest thing I’ve ever done in my life: asking Genifer to marry me. Thanks for remembering, Timehop! Taken with Instagram. 😀💍❤️

Stopping in Clifton.

On the way home, I got off the bus in Clifton’s Gaslight District to pick up a few things. I’ve been having the strangest, really odd craving for some old skool Sunny D lately. I wonder if Clifton Market has any Sunny D?

After picking up a few groceries including Sunny D, I walked right next door and ordered us some delicious take-out for dinner from China Kitchen…

It’s super convenient that all these great places are right on the 17 bus line home. It’s so easy to get a transfer, hop off the bus, pick up some great stuff and then get right back the next bus! I love it. 😀🚌🍊🍜

Deskey+Elementz.

We are working on a visual identity for a client that is all about the community of Cincinnati. We are partnering with Elementz, Cincinnati’s Hip Hop youth center. It’s essentially an urban arts center where inner city kids can gather and create anything from hip-hop to street dance, spoken word poetry to street art, photography and visual arts. We’re teaming up with four Elementz students for inspirational design to ensure our identity is representative of the community. The students were asked to use their creative platform of choice to develop a concept that represents their community.

This afternoon we got to meet with the students and tour Elementz…

Those are some very super talented kids. And Elementz space is pretty amazing. It’ll be great to work with this group and see what we can come up with together. 😀

Sunday Funday.

We watched the Mexico versus Portugal Confederations Cup match this morning. And then we headed down to Second Place to watch Chile take on Cameron. On our way to Second Place, we noticed a sign on the door of our beloved Django Western Taco

Django is moving in next to Tickle Pickle on Hamilton Avenue, and that’s just a hop, skip and a jump from us. Chef Josh broke the news to us a few weeks ago when we were in for Sunday Brunch that they were moving up Hamilton. It’s so cool to have one of our most favorite restaurants move even closer to our house…

Now if we could just get Second Place to move closer as well. Their featured slush today was a cayenne pina colada, which mixed surprisingly well with the bourbon slush…

It tasted like being on vacation. And made for a pretty fun Sunday. 😀🏖️🌮

Happy Father’s Day.

Happy Father’s Day, dads! Thank you for all you’ve done for us and continue to do!
We love you so much! 🙂

FC Cincinnati versus Charleston Battery.

IT’S MATCH DAY! FC Cincinnati was taking on Charleston Battery. It was another big match for FC|C! The Battery was the top team in the USL’s Eastern Conference…

We got into Nippert Stadium just ahead of the march of the supporters groups…

O say can you see…

FC Cincinnati head coach Alan Kock started both big forwards, Djiby and Danni König!

HERE WE GO!

GOAL! FC CINCINNATI! 1-0! Djiby stole that one from Harrison Delbridge…

At the half, it was still 1-0 FC Cincinnati…

And that means it’s time for SPRINKLES!

Charleston Battery found their equaliser, but it was another great crowd tonight…

And then the Battery took the took the lead…

But then FC Cincinnati’s Andrew Wiedeman scored the equaliser that would go on to make Sportscenter’s Top 10 later the next morning

Three minutes to be added on…

And the match ended 2-2

I thought it was a pretty good result for FC Cincinnati to be able to get a point against the first place team…

Next match for FC Cincinnati is next Saturday when they welcome St. Louis FC back to Nippert Stadium. If you remember back, St. Louis FC is the team that Djiby scored four against earlier in the season. It’ll be exciting to see if he can manage to repeat that amazing feat…

And of course, we’ll see you there! 😀❤️⚽️

One year ago today…

One year ago today, we closed on our house

It’s crazy to think that a year ago we were still living in our tiny apartment downtown…

Buying our house in Northside was the best decisions we’ve ever made. And it’s been one of the best years of my life. 😀🔑🏡🌈❤️

We love our backyard.

It’s Friday night and there’s nothing better than hanging out on our back patio…

Taken with Instagram. 😀❤️

Northside nubs.

When we stopped at Sidewinder to get coffee this morning, We were really liking these little paintings by artist, Greg Albert…

And on the way out, we noticed this sign for a new pizza restaurant opening down the street in the Chameleon

We can’t wait to check out their pizza. 😀🍕❤️

Taken with Instagram.

This evening we walked through a couple of open houses in our neighborhood. It’s really interesting to see how other houses are laid out and how they’ve been decorated. They’re all so different…

They were both really nice but I think we’ll always like our house better. Because home is where the heart is. ❤️

Taken with Instagram. 😀

Darn right, more power.

We had a contractor come out this morning to replace our garage disposal. Just look at this beast of a new disposal…

The InSinkErator PRO 750 Evolution 3/4 HP Continuous Feed Food Waste Disposal. (Insert Tim Allen grunts). Kitchen wood chipper. The disposal was also causing our dishwasher not to drain properly. So we couldn’t really use our fancy super nice dishwasher. And now that our disposal works, our dishwasher works great again too!

You don’t know how much you take a dishwasher for granted until it isn’t working. And it was all extremely affordable thanks to our homeowner’s warranty! 😀

USOC17: FC Cincinnati versus Columbus Crew.

IT’S HERE! IT’S MATCH DAY! It’s the Inaugural Hell Is Real Cup! The first ever Battle for Soccer Supremacy in Ohio! FC Cincinnati versus Columbus Crew. At Nippert Stadium!

A fair number of Crew fans made the drive down to Cincinnati for the match…

The Crew brought their “A” team to Cincinnati tonight. In the red pinnie is the Crew’s star player Frederico Higuan…

And in front of him is Justin Meram…

O say can you see…

 

 

HELL IS REAL

HERE… WE… GO!

Neither team could open the scoring, and FC Cincinnati survived the first half against Columbus Crew unscathed…

SPRINKLES!

And the second half is underway…

DJIBY! GOAL! 1-0 FC CINCINNATI!

Just to put tonight’s attendance in perspective, the highest ever home attendance for a Columbus Crew match was 31,550. Per Bailey Banter:
FC Cincinnati has an average attendance of 19,132 as of Week 11 with a total attendance of 114,790 off of just 6 home matches (far and away the highest
in the USL
).
Columbus Crew has an average attendance of 13,050 and total attendance
of 104,402
as off Week 14 off of 8 home matches (lowest in the MLS).
(Attendance stats provided by SoccerStadiumDigest.com)
And the largest crowd for a soccer game in Ohio is still last summer’s FC Cincy friendly against Crystal Palace that drew a whopping 35,061 people

 

It seemed like a smoked grenade accidentally went off in the middle of the traveling Crew supporters…

Or were they conceding the match? The fourth official signaled there would be an agonizing six additional minutes of time added on…

BLOW! THE! WHISTLE! 👏👏👏

AND THERE’S THE FINAL WHISTLE! 1-0 FC CINCINNATI! FC|C JUST KNOCKED THE COLUMBUS CREW OUT OF THE 2017 US OPEN CUP! HELL IS REAL FOR COLUMBUS!

FC|C take on first-placed Charleston Battery this Saturday at Nippert Stadium…

It was such an unbelievable night. Electric atmosphere. Pretty indescribable. There really aren’t words. And the game actually made Scott Van Pelt’s SportsCenter.

UPDATE: FC Cincinnati were placed in the South Region of the US Open Cup. The draw for the Fifth Round of the US Open Cup pits FC|C against Bastian Schweinsteiger and the MSL’s Chicago Fire. And once again as the luck of the draw would have it, FC Cincy’s Sweet Sixteen USOC match will be played at Nippert Stadium on June 28th…

And of course, we’ll see you there! 😀❤️⚽️👊💯
