We hit the first playoff game of the MLS Westerern Conference, were ReAL creamated the Seattle Sounders 3-0. We have yet to go to a game where our favorite soccer team hasn't won.
Just before the game started, something strange happened to Brielle. Itchy eyes, scratchy throat, aching tummy and super warm cheeks. She wouldn't wear a jacket (and it was cold). This sudden onset of what seemed to be an allergic reaction was a first for Brielle. But what the heck had caused it?
Earlier at dinner with our friend's the McB's, Brielle was determined to try the kid's Snow Crab bowl at Joe's Crab Shack (I suspect her daring choice of cuisine had to do with the fact that her friend, Macie, has just ordered the same thing). You could tell, within a few bites, this poor girl was just not herself.
After a stadium hot dog (mustard only), a Sprite and 3 crazy good goals scored by ReAL, Brielle started to look more like herself again.
We left the stadium sure of two things...
1. ReAL plays better when the Merkley's are in attendance.
2. No more Snow Crab for Brielle.
