Road trip to Indianapolis.

ROAD TRIP! This afternoon we drove over to Indianapolis. Before we left to go to North Carolina, we bought tickets on one of those ticket resale sites for the USL soccer match between Indy 11 and our favorite USL squad, Louisville City…

We dropped Mack at Pet Spot for the night and we dropped Oscar at Geri’s before heading over to Indianapolis…

Compared to all the driving we did last weekend, the drive over to Indianapolis really seemed like nothing. It went by so fast…

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis…

It was a really nice hotel with a beautiful open air atrium…

Our room was very nice as well…

Before the match, we shared a BBQ burger and pepperjack cheese bites at Loughmiller’s Pub…

Amazing burger. And then it was on to Lucas Oil Stadium…

Indy 11 pulled back a goal from a penalty kick just the before the halftime whistle. And that made the score 3-1 to Lou City at the half.

After seeing four goals in the first half, we broke camp in the 60th minute. We didn’t want to wait around to see if Indy 11 could mount a pretty epic comeback.

Lucas Oil Stadium sure is a beautiful place to watch a game. We were so happy we got to see it with the roof open and without many people inside. The announced attendance was just 6,700.

And the final score of the match was Lou City 3-1 over Indy 11. We saw all the goals. Plus, we were sitting behind the goal where Lousiville scored all three of their goals and then we moved to the other end and were sitting behind the goal when Indy 11 scored their PK. Pretty neat stuff.

We stopped for a postgame drink at Brothers…

And then we meandered through downtown back to our hotel…

We ordered pizza and called it a night…

And good night from Indianapolis. It was a really fun day! 😀🗺️⚽️🍺❤️

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. 😀⚽️🏆❤️
