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! 😀❤️⚽️👊💯

Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside. 🙂

Slow down and grill.

It’s Monday. What better day to fire up the grill?

We grilled some really big jerk chicken breasts, lime-pepper marinated chicken tenders and a bunch of assorted vegetables…

All but one chicken is ready…

Now all the chicken is ready…

We’re just waiting on the vegetables…

And Genifer made cornmeal festival again!

YUM! And the best part is… there’s going to be more than enough for lunch tomorrow!
😀🐔🔥❤️

Miami Township Summer Concert Series: Blues, Brews, & BBQ

This evening we drove out to meet Cleve, Alyssa and Geri at the beautiful and very expansive Miami Riverview Park all the way out in Loveland to check out the first Miami Township Summer Concert Series of the summer: Brews, Blues & BBQ

U-Lucky Dawg, Pickles & Bones BBQ and Loveland Dairy Whip were all at the park dishing up delicious goodness…

We decided to start with some Pickles & Bones BBQ…

We got the brisket and smoked turkey with mac&cheese and spicy baked beans…

Delicious stuff! The plan was to get something from each of the three food trucks but we were stuffed after finishing the BBQ…

And we listened to The Fabulous Blue Brothers Band…

They were pretty fun a pretty fun band!

It was a really fun and something completely different on a Sunday evening. 🙂

FC Cincinnati versus Charlotte Independence.

IT’S MATCH DAY! This evening FC Cincinnati was taking on Charlotte Independence in the battle for the Queen City Cup. Coming into today’s match up at Nippert Stadium, Charlotte Independence was sitting in near the bottom of the USL’s Eastern Conference in 12th place and our FC|C was residing in 7th place. It seemed like it would be a great place to pick up a much needed three points and start to climb up the table a bit…

We stopped at Mac’s Pizza Pub again before the match. When I went to the restroom,
I came back to find this photo on my phone…

Silly head. We headed over to Nippert…

Sam the Cincinnati’s Zoo’s Bald Eagle made an appearance at today’s match…

And we’re underway…

It was a beautiful evening for soccer…

Charlotte Independence was on the board first courtesy of a near post screamer…

And just the before half, FC|C’s former Arsenal defender, Justin Hoyte levelled the score at 1-1 with a beauty of a goal

And that was the score at the break…

SPRINKLES!!!

SOOOO EXCITED FOR THIS WEDNESDAY…

But first, FC Cincinnati still had some work to do here today…

Here we go…

21,115

DJIBY! Back from suspension was about to enter the match…

Three minutes of time added on…

But no one could break the deadlock, and the match ended 1-1

Not surprisingly, Justin Hoyte was the Man of the Match…

WEDNESDAY! 

After the match, there were postgame fireworks set to the music of Bunbury…

Eagerly awaiting the start of the fireworks…

At the start of the fireworks, I sat my Polaroid Cube on the wall next to us. This is the video I captured of the FC Cincinnati fireworks…

It was a pretty spectacular fireworks display. And speaking of fireworks, there are going to even more fireworks happening at Nippert Stadium this coming week as our FC Cincinnati welcomes an MLS squad into Nippert for the very first time. As mentioned, they will host the Columbus Crew on Wednesday in the fourth round of the 2017 US Open Cup. And then Saturday, FC|C hosts the USL Eastern Conference first-place side, Charleston Battery at Nippert as well. Talk about a couple of really big matches!
We’ll see you there!

 

Summer hours: Django Western Taco.

Deskey lets us work just a half-day every other Friday throughout the summer. They
call them Summer Hours. And they’re pretty flippin’ awesome. Today was my first Summer Hours Friday. We didn’t plan ahead very well, and couldn’t come up with anything fun to do. So when I got home, I worked on organizing the office for a bit while I watched the France versus Sweden World Cup qualifier. Olivier Giroud had an amazing goal for France. As for the office, it still has quite a ways to go but at least I know where more stuff is now. I’ll keep plugging away at working on it…

While I was organizing, I found two $25 gift cards that I apparently misplaced. I also found a gift certificate that still had a balance to Django Western Taco. And there’s no better time than the present to redeem that gift certificate for some delicious Django Western Taco goodness

Genifer ordered a carne asada taco and she loves Django’s salsa…

Django’s special today was corn on the cob with chipotle aioli and shredded cheese…

And of course, I ordered their amazing chicken biscuit…

It’s one of my favorite dishes around. Just look at that delicious mess…

Django also had a watermelon beer from Lost Coast on tap that was out of this world! I’m really happy we couldn’t come up with something to do earlier. Next Summer Hours, I think we’re going to go check out Island Frydays in Corryville. 🙂

Taken with Instagram.

It was a really pretty evening…

And we had spaghetti and garlic bread for dinner…

I love spaghetti and garlic bread! Taken with Instagram. 😀🍝❤️

56,000!

I picked up my 56,000th check-in on Swarm this morning…

What can I say? Sometimes it’s the little things. I still love my Swarm! 🙂

Downtown details.

There were some really dark and threatening looking clouds hanging over downtown Cincinnati. It looked like it was right on the verge of pouring down rain at any second all day today. But thankfully somehow, it didn’t rain a drop all day. 😀☁️
