Well, all I have to say is that it was magical. From the pre-game hours build-up, with so much going on in Clifton, to the actual game itself, it all felt so perfect, almost surreal. One of the best sports moments in my 32 years living in Cincinnati.

And as a complete aside, one of the best client-entertaining events we have ever hosted. The energy and good vibes were all around. We had about 65 people in our suite at Nippert. "Hope we can come again", commented one of my clients. When was the last time you heard a comment like that at the Reds or Bengals?

Dan, glad to see your reaction about Green Book, which mirrored mine. This was a strictly "done by the numbers" movie and utterly safe Hollywood film about race relations. It clearly wasn't the best movie of the year (that would be Roma), and it was Hollywood at its PC worst. "Hey, we get it, we need to be more sensitive about race relations, so let's pet ourselves on the back, and give Best Picture to this!" <sigh>

FYI, Hulu is now included for free with a Spotify Premium account.  Works for both new and existing users.  Just need to go to the Spotify website and either sign up for Hulu or link your Hulu account.
i keep looking for the gotcha but don't see one yet. i think it is actually free with spotify premium......

That's a lot to review, so here's the fast version:
Mission Impossible: good spy action flick
Peppermint: I liked it, but it was properly rated. Tried to be female John Wick but kind of got everything wrong if that's what it was trying to be.
Crazy Rich Asians: Really good, but tried to do too much. Probably better as a book! (that's a joke, fyi)
Training Day: Intense
Deadpool: forgot so much of this. Funny.
Captain Marvel: Very enjoyable. Goose stole the show. Brie Larson really is a rock star.
Green Book: this was the best picture? It was so predictable, formulaic, un-nuanced, and generally bland.
Lego Movie 2: pretty terrible. It's a kids movie, and the kids in the theater were quiet and enraptured, so I guess it succeeds, but it was pretty terrible for a middle aged viewer.
Dead Poets Society: I found the father's lack of motivation to be annoying/confusing.
Ralph Breaks the Internet: like someone else said...not as good as the first, but still very good and entertaining. This was the film that Lego Movie 2 wished it was.

I have a hard time blaming what happened on Trump, but his total lack of self awareness is the exact problem. If someone who killed 50 people cited me as an inspiration, I might not accept responsibility, but you can sure as hell guarantee I am going to take a hard look at what I have done that he thinks I am an inspiration. The fact he just continues on without any even thought of looking at why all these people idolize him shows that he just doesn't care. It doesn't matter who idolizes him as long as someone does.

I like how Theresa May is all "No more vote on whether to remain.  We did that already, and the voters have spoken.  How many times can we vote on somerhing?!?  PS Pleasepleaseplease can we vote yet again on my Brexit plan?  See, because I lost that one."

I hate blaming politicians for the acts of crazy people.  But damn, why does Trump have to be hypocritical super dick about it?  Remember that whole "Hey Muslims need to speak out against terrorism or they are terrorists themselves" thing?

Also good job Bernie sis. "You can't call Omar anti-Semitic for criticizing AIPAC.  It's a group, not a race.  Know the difference.  Hillary Clinton is anti-Muslim for criticizing Omar!"

FCC's MLS home opener tomorrow at 5 pm!!!!

The match is officially sold out.

I have season tickets, but gave them to my son as I will actually watch from one of the suites with clients and friends of the firm. The client demand was so high that we upgraded to the largest suite available (65 people).

With tomorrow being also St. Patty's day, Clifton is going to be rocking. Traffic and parking will be a huge challenge. I am meeting up with clients at 3 pm at the Taste of Belgium on Short Vine for a late brunch, and then make our way over to Nippert around 4 or so.

I have to say, I'm pretty excited.
