Soccer Saturday with some yardwork.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s to get some stuff for our backyard…

We listened to the FA Cup final while we almost finished staining our fence…

But we ran out of stain. Again. And we put some little pea gravel down on the other side of the path in our side yard…

We walked to Tickle Pickle to pick up an early dinner…

I’m not certain but I think Tickle Pickle might have got a big new sign…

But they have fries now!

BAM!

And the fries were delicious…

Good evening from Northside…

Tomorrow, we’ll go get some more stain for our fence and some flowers for our side yard…

Later, we watched the ladies of Racing Louisville play to nil-nil draw…

And we watched Minnesota United snatch a 1-0 win in the 95th minute

It was a really good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ–ŒοΈπŸ”πŸŸβš½οΈβ€οΈ

The FA Cup Final.

I’ve been a fan of Arsenal football club for as long as I can remember. My love for the club dates back to the early nineties. Way back in the day, I would watch (and record) the hour-long highlight show from the week that was in the English first division. And I fell in love with Arsenal. I fell hard. Their name, their kit, their larger-than-life cast of characters, their style of play with all the intricate passing, and jaw-dropping team goals. Before Arsene Wenger led the club to new heights. Heck, even before there was even an English Premier League. Arsenal has just always been my team for as long as I can remember.

Fast forward to the start of the 2014/15 season, and newly promoted Leceister City caught my attention. I still remember the piece NBCSN did on the newly promoted Foxes from “Lester.” And I thought if Arsenal were my top-of-the-table team, Leceister would be my relegation battle team. Leicester survived their first season back in the Premier League and then went on to become Premier League Champions during their unbelievably magical 2015/16 season. All of a sudden Leicester is my team competing for top-four finishes. Because in the meantime, Arsenal forced out their club legend manager, Arsene Wagner and is now somehow a middle of the table team.

Long story short, I’m a big fan of two football clubs.

Today, Leicester played in their fifth FA Cup final. They’d made the finals on four other occasions and lost all four, the last itme being during the 1968/69 season.

But today, the Foxes won their first-ever FA Cup by beating Chelsea 1-0 on a Youri Tielemans goal from 25 yards out. I collected a bunch of images from social media to commemorate the occasion…

It was an amazing match! It had a bit of everything… a banger of a goal from Youri Tielemans, an iconic save from Kasper Schmeichel, VAR controversary and most importantly, Leicester City lifting the Cup!

COVID-19 Carryout: CityBird Tenders.

To celebrate surviving another week of working from home, we ordered some delicious carryout from CityBird Tenders in Over-the-Rhine…

Genifer ordered their Citybird sandwich with tenders, city slaw, city sauce, pickles all on a toasted potato bun and served with fries…

I ordered their 10 tenders with 2 sauces and a side of fries…

I got their City Sauce and Honey Dijon mustard. Citybird is so good. We’re going to have to get more Citybird Tenders carryout again really soon. πŸ˜€πŸ”β€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

Five years ago.

Five years ago today was what will forever be known as the Great Power Stack Fire Game of 2015. Or the Reds game when one of the Power Stacks caught on fire…

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. Β I miss baseball so dang much. πŸ˜€βšΎοΈπŸ”₯❀️

700 Timehops in a row!

Today was my 700th Timehop in a row!

Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Timehop. πŸ˜€πŸ¦•β€οΈ

Tonight, we went to see the Reds take on the San Francisco Giants…

It was Star Wars night at GABP…

But tonight will be one of those games that goes down into Reds lore like being at Homer Bailey’s second no-hitter or being at the first postseason game in the history of GABP. Because tonight will forever be known as the game when one of the Reds Power Stacks caught on fire…

One of the #Reds Power Stacks is on fire...

I heard that Cincinnati Fire was watching the game on TV, and were at the ballpark before the call even came into the fire station downtown…

And other than that, it was pretty much a turrible game. The Reds got killed.
