Athletic has just been approved for 50% capacity, so games will be twice as good as last year. I can't wait for the season, I think they hired a good coach and the franchise has a plan.

While they were clearly not of the class of NYCFC in yesterday's practice friendly, Athletic played well and made the hosts work for a 2=0 victory. Over the last 1/3 the game got a little chippy, although I thought Athletic's aggressiveness was exaggerated by NYC's diving practice - going down like they were shot after what were, at most, minor fouls.

Hey outlaw, I noticed that the Tavern is now a HA Pub Partner! Is there a story there?
No story that I'm aware of - Tavern has always been good about partnering with local teams/events.

Opening Day! Hartford getting no respect again despite winning their division last year. This season they are picked to come in 6th out of 8 in their conference, top 4 make the playoffs. It looks like they can score, I'm not sure how well they can defend. Game is on MyTV9.

Very solid game for Athletic and it bodes well for the future. Miami packed its roster with experienced players this off-season while HA went for younger guys. They played with strong discipline under the new coach and earned what may appear later in the season to have been a tough road win.
