Because, aviously…

Sunday I went out to Yankee Stadium and sat in the Legends section for a thrilling match between Hudson River rivals of NYCFC and the Red Bulls from New Jersey.

The match was a full out fight, with both teams trading goals and the lead, before FC Captain David Villa finished off his first MLS Hat-trick for a 3-2 win.

The stadium, with 30,000+ fans, was loud from start to finish, and a little boost from USWNT Legend Carli Lloyd started the smoke up before the match. But the place is never louder than when Villa’s name is announced after a goal.

It was a great experience watching the players come out for practice, giving them encouragement ahead of the match, and a special thanks to Maxi Moralez and Kwame Awuah for stopping by after the game and signing our gear!
