This summer we decided to finally pay a visit to one of Kimberly's high school friends who lives in Ohio. So we drove up to Circleville, OH and spent a couple of nights with Deb and her family. It was a nice visit, our first ever to Ohio. We went to the Pickaway County Fair, tooled around Circleville and had a very nice time.
One night we drove thirty miles north to Columbus to catch a Crew game. They just happened to be playing our FC Dallas. I had wanted to see Crew Stadium which is kind of legendary in American soccer circles since it was the first stadium build specifically for soccer. Lamar Hunt, the Crew's owner at the time, was taking quite a risk. But now almost every MLS side boasts their own grounds.
We had great seats but had to take cover a few minutes before the game started due to a storm that rolled in. We waited for an hour before being told the game was cancelled. We later found out the match was cancelled because an off-duty fireman was struck by lightning in the parking lot moments before game time. He survived. Bummed that we didn't see a game but glad everyone was okay. Crew Stadium is a cool venue and they treated us well despite our FC Dallas gear.
We enjoyed our brief visit to Ohio before heading out to New York.
