Another rainy evening.

Checking in on the WyzeCams. It’s another rainy evening on our street in Northside…

We’ve had a lot of rainy days lately. Β πŸ˜€πŸ“·β˜”οΈβ€οΈ

A grey day at Grey.

It was a rainy and grey day at Grey…Β 

But there was a little bit of sunshine waiting in one of Grey’s refrigerators…

It’s a DQ ice cream cake! We must be celebrating June birthdays soon! πŸ˜€β˜‚οΈπŸŽ‚πŸ¦β€οΈ

UPDATE: We had DQ ice cream cake on Friday!

Also, DQ ice cream cake is so good!

Checking in on the WyzeCams.

It’s a rainy evening on our street in Northside.Β πŸ˜€πŸ“·β˜”οΈβ€οΈ

Thunderstorms.

Some storm clouds rolled through downtown this morning…

And holy geez, did it get dark outside…

Yikes. πŸ˜€β˜‚οΈβ€οΈ

The view is pretty nice.

The windows on the west side of Grey’s office overlooks the 71/75 interchange. I could sit and watch the traffic all day long. It’s so mesmerizing…

And then it started raining…

Later in the afternoon, the rain stopped and I took this LapseIt timelapse looking out the window from my space on the other side of the office…

The views of downtown Cincinnati from Grey’s offices are just gorgeous. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ˜οΈπŸŒ€οΈβ€οΈ

FC Cincinnati versus Real Salt Lake.

Tonight, our FC Cincinnati was playing host to Real Salt Lake…

It was another cold and rainy evening for FC Cincinnati soccer this time the match was on a Friday night. At least, it wasn’t another Sunday game.

We saw FC|C’s mascot, Gary…

And we headed around to the other side of Nippert Stadium to find our friend, Kathy…

Turns out Kathy had some pretty amazing seats…

There’s Kathy…

The match ended 3-0 to Real Salt Lake. I still don’t understand why almost everyone in Cincinnati was so hyped about joining MLS. I loved the USL version of FC Cincinnati so much. The MLS FC|C has now been outscored 8-1 in their four matches. πŸ˜€βš½οΈβ€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

There was a storm rolling into Northside this morning…

I could have stood there all morning and watched that storm pass through. It was really pretty. But unfortunately, we have stuff to do. Good morning from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈβ€οΈ

FC Cincinnati versus Sporting Kansas City.

FC Cincinnati was playing host to Sporting Kansas City on yet another cold and rainy Sunday. Remember when soccer used to be played on Saturdays?

And the match would end in a 1-1 draw.Β 

After the match, we hopped in an Uber to get back to Northside to get a slice of pizza at Chameleon and then we walked home…

And the slices were pretty much the best part of the evening. Standing around on another cold and rainy Sunday watching a lackluster performance. I’m getting pretty tired of these Sunday matches. If I wanted to watch mediocre football on Sunday afternoons, I’d go to Bengals game.πŸ˜€βš½οΈβ€οΈ

The monsoon match.

Tonight, FC Cincinnati played host to Philadelphia Union in what will forever be known in my mind and always referred to as the FC|C Monsoon Match…

We headed down to where we normally stand only to find a lot of people had pretty much the same exact idea…

I think I spent as much time watching the rain fall as I spent watching the soccer…

We decided to break camp just before half time and watch the second half from the comfort of St. Clair. Any place inside of Nippert Stadium with an overhang was jam-packed full of people…

When FC Cincinnati went down 2-0, we decided to pack it in completely, get an Uber and head for home…

FC Cincinnati ended up losing the monsoon match 2-0. πŸ˜€βš½οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈβ€οΈ

Best laid plans.

We had a whole entire day of Cincinnati sports planned today. A couple of weeks ago, we bought Fioptics District tickets for today’s afternoon Reds game. And then after the Reds game, we were going to ride the Metro 17 bus up to tonight’s FC Cincinnati match. Before the Reds game, we stopped to eat lunch at The Pony

And look what they still had on draft…

BELL’S MANGO HABANERO OBERON!

The Pony is such a great little place…

We shared a chicken finger basket. Their chicken fingers are just out of this world…

And we shared their delicious chicken wing dip…

It was remarkably similar to Genifer’s buffalo chicken dip. But it was served with Frito’s instead of tortilla chips. I really liked it with Frito’s. I liked it a lot. Genifer also got the very last of the Bell’s Mango Habanero Oberon…

While we were eating, it would alternate between being sunny outside and then a few minutes later it would be pouring down rain. We were watching the Reds Twitter for any updates, And as we were getting ready to head down towards the ballpark, this tweet popped up…

The start of the Reds game was delayed. And then there was this tweet that popped up a little while later…

Bummer. You know what they say about best-laid plans, right? At least we got a really good lunch out of it at The Pony. πŸ˜€πŸ΄πŸŒ§οΈβšΎοΈβ€οΈ
