Let’s GO X!

We had tickets for this afternoon’s Xavier Men’s basketball game against the Oakland Golden Grizzlies. We bought our tickets a while back after discovering how silly cheap you could get tickets for events on  StubHub. Unfortunately, you can’t purchase good weather. It was pouring down rain this morning on our way to the game…

I made it through yet another metal detector without my hips set off the alarms…

It’s been a while since we’ve been to a Xavier game

I don’t remember the player introductions being so cool

We figured out there’s a place to stand up behind the seats. We like standing…

Xavier was leading at halftime…

It was kind of an ugly game. But Xavier won 73-63! That’s three in a row for X!

On the way out of Cintas Center, they gave everyone 20% off coupons at the Xavier team shop. We looked in the shop inside Cintas Center but they didn’t have any sizes…

So we walked down to the All For One Shop. And they had everything Xavier…

We both got Xavier sweatshirts to wear to our next Xavier game. 😀✖️🏀❤️

On our way home, we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium for a beer, some loaded tots and a pepperoni&sausage apizza…

It was a really fun Saturday! 😀🍕❤️

It wasn’t Cincinnati’s day.

This evening we walked down to Second Place to watch the March Madness Elite Eight game between Xavier and Gonzaga. It didn’t end so well for Xavier. But just like Michigan, Xavier had a great run that far surpassed expectations. At halftime of the Xavier game, the second season of FC Cincinnati officially kicked off away to the Charleston Battery…

And that game didn’t end well for Cincinnati either. FC Cincy dropped the first game of their USL season 2-1 to the Battery. Hopefully, they’ll be able to grab their first points of the season next Saturday away to Pittsburgh. 🙂
