Menace Soccer in the Lamar Hunt Open Cup: My First Road Game!

Twitter is the high school cafeteria of adulthood. There’s all sorts of gossip and information being passed, and every once in a while, someone says something that sounds just interesting enough to send you off on the next great adventure.

Such was the case as @Backseatgaffer, Scott Viar, and I discussing Midwest soccer over the past few months, culminating in a discussion last weekend of him scoping out the Menace Soccer team, who would be playing a team local to him in the first round of the Lamar Hunt Open Cup. I didn’t even realize the Menace were playing so close, since it’s not listed on their schedule. With one kid on intercession break, I could go to a Tuesday night game with only my preschooler missing a couple hours of school, which in our house is too good an opportunity to miss.

So thanks to a little recon from Twitter, the family and I are off to Milwaukee, to my first away Menace game. We’ll see how this goes….with our supporters section of three against the Bavarians! At least they’re not Barbarians….right? Frankly, I’m more concerned about the grilling I’m about to get about the Menace’s Womens Team being in the WLS instead of the WPSL. Here we go…Menace fans!

No grilling from me. I get the rationale and reasons. Some others don’t see it and I shake my head when it’s brought up.
