FC Cincinnati! hype!
#1
First off I am triggered that football/soccer isnt mentioned under this topic.

More importantly lets discuss the most exciting professional team in Cincinnati, and that is FC Cincinnati (tier 2). They just beat Chicago (MLS tier 1) tonight on pens on ESPN, and move to the quarterfinals on the US tourney amongst the leagues here. They also had the second largest crowd in the tourney's history just over 32000. Only player of note I know of on Chicago was Schweinsteiger who played years for Bayern Munich super club and then a bit for Manchester U before coming to Chicago this year. He also played on the German national team in world cups.

Anyways FC Cincy won, and after tonight & after beating the Columbus Crew recently (another MLS team), they are in my opinion the most exciting sports team in the area this year, and probably will be based on the other two pro teams recent histories.

I probably shouldn't have watched the end of the game. I'm jacked up right now and sleep likely isn't going to come easy, hah.

I was worried during the first 30 minutes or so when it looked like it was going to be horribly one-sided. After the half though, that was damn exciting. It's a shame Cincinnati got screwed twice by the refs (which is how you know they're a Cincinnati sports team) forcing the kicks, but damn... exciting.

I hope MLS comes calling soon, before Jimmy and Mitch get lured away next year like Sean Okoli did.

Mitch hildebrandt played out of his mind.... best display of goalkeeping that I can remember in a very very long time.

I was telling my buddy the last time I was this hyped for a cincy sporting event was Seahawks/bengals.

What a great game and what a great crowd!!

At least it was good for ratings and people will remember this game outside of Cincy... maybe. It couldn't have happened on a better night with minimal competition for tv.

Their are on the right track. They looked out mached early on but they found away to win against a much better team. The reds and Bengals better watch out because this team is about steal this City heart.

Well they were outmatched for sure, but they played with an extra defender to be bend/break... and goalie played amazing. They couldn't have kept up normally but great adjustment by the coach, and great execution by the players.

And yes, fcc is def on the rise

Pointed it out by harassing him over Lewis' 0-7 postseason record.   Cry

The more I think about it, the more I think FCC should just stay in Nippert. Good atmosphere, lots of bars and restaurants around, big college population (who are more likely to be soccer fans) on hand.

I don't think Cincinnati is going to pay $100m, and Covington/Newport just won't be the same for the fan turnout.

I can't imagine MLS is going to look at a team with constant 20k+ turnouts, with 30k+ big games, and say "no thanks, your perfectly great stadium isn't soccer specific".
