Ohhh… Stuffed crust.

We got Pizza Hut for dinner tonight. They don’t deliver to us so I had to go pick it up…

And wouldn’t you know on the way home I got stuck at a train track…

The pizza was awesome! I just love Pizza Hut’s Meat Lovers pizza with their pan crust…

Oh… and stuffed crust is pretty good too. 😀🍕❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

We had Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken with potstickers again for dinner…

Dang. It’s so good. Taken with Instagram. 😀🥡❤️

Good evening from Northside.

Good evening from Northside. 😀🌄❤️

It’s what’s for lunch.

Genifer made us this amazingly delicious zoodle pasta salad for lunch today…

She finds the best stuff to make. 😀🥗❤️

Seen and noted.

Our FC Cincinnati was playing in a four-team preseason tournament in Charleston. All the matches were available to stream through the Charleston Battery’s website, which was less than ideal. This afternoon FC|C played its final match of the Carolina Challenge Cup against Columbus Crew. And someone could have used a hand in their spelling of Clombus Columbus…

No matter how you spell it, Crew thumped Cincinnati 3-0. 🤪⚽️❤️

One year ago today.

One year ago today, I had the first of my three hip surgeries…

And where they still have their occasional aches and pains, both hips are 100% better than they were before their replacement surgeries. Thanks, Timehop!😀🦕❤️

Oh, and I got to eat magic middles in bed…

YUM! 😀

Let’s GO X!

I left work a little early today to hop on the Metro Plus…

And I rode the Metro Plus up to Listermann across the street from Xavier…

Here’s what was on tap at Listermann tonight

There I met our friend Chris who happens to work for Xavier. He got us tickets for tonight’s Big East matchup between the Georgetown Hoyas and our Xavier Musketeers…

One of my earliest basketball memories is watching the Big East Conference in its heyday when Lou Carnesecca was coaching Chris Mullin at St. John’s, Rollie Massimino was coaching Ed Pinckney at Villanova, PJ Carlesimo was at Seton Hall, Jim Boeheim was well on his way at Syracuse and… John Thompson was coaching Patrick Ewing at Georgetown.

Fast forward to today and now Patrick Ewing is the head coach of the Georgetown Hoyas and he’s standing right down there on the court of Cintas Center…

By the way, ESPN made an outstanding 30-for-30 documentary called “Requiem For The Big East” about the meteoric rise of the Big East Conference. And how it became one of the most successful college sports leagues in America. Incredible documentary. If you love college basketball and get a chance, it is definitely worth watching.

Xavier trailed by seventeen at one point in the first half. But they went on a run to close the gap to being down just five at halftime…

And Xavier would go on to win the game 81-75!

One of the cool, relatively new features of Cintas Center is the popular Norwood Café, more commonly known as The Woods. Norwood Cafe used to be located at the corner of Dana and Cleneay. It was demolished in 2008 to make room for construction of University Station, including Xavier’s All for One Shop. Renovations to Cintas Center for the 2017/18 season saw the recreation of the cafe on the upper concourse. And they brought in the original 100-year-old cherryback bar that spanned the 35 feet of The Woods’ main gathering space along with a close representation of the tile floor and the original chandelier…

Pretty neat stuff. Here’s a cool video about the renovations. In front of the area are terraces where you can stand and watch the game with your beverage. And we love standing and watching sports. Also cool was the fact that back when Xavier used to have a football team, they were involved in the first doubleheader in college football…

Who knew?! It was a great time. Thanks again to Chris and Tayler for getting us tickets! Let’s GO X! 😀🏀❤️

Today was National Hot Dog Day! I ate the leftover hot dogs from last night for lunch…

We had a cheese tasting and chat about all things cheese at work this afternoon…

My favorite cheese I sampled was the Tillamook Hot Habanero Jack. But it was cheese,
so they were all pretty dang good. I saw this cool little moped outside of work…

And someone lost their shoes. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a pair of lost shoes…

Later in the evening when we were walking Oscar, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky…

We had chicken and broccoli noodles with garlic bread for dinner…

It was sort of like Fettuccine Alfredo. But still really tasty. And then we watched the USMNT take on El Salvador in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup…

Despite a less than convincing 2-0 USA win, it was still a really good Wednesday.
