A four hour plus road trip up North and the Ultras were in Tampa supporting Miami FC as they faced the Tampa Bay Rowdies. The game was delayed due to rain, we got soaked and a Rowdies fan threw a beer at me, thankfully missing, but wasting a perfectly good beer. Alcohol abuse!
Some 50 plus Miami fans came out to Steinbrenner field and danced to the beat of the Miami Ultras drums and cowbell. Tampa's security even told us they liked us better then the troublesome Ralph's Mob (Plus we are better looking too!). We never saw the Sock Mascot they have. I guess they didn't want to get their sock wet... They did have these weird bugs that I just had to take a picture of, see to the right. In the end, it was a fun drive up and we hope to see more Miami Fans make the trip to the next game at the end of the month!
The Blues held on to the ball for large portions of the game and while our midfield is strong we still seem to lack that Center Forward that can score goals a la Alex Afonso from a few years back or Romario from Miami FC's first season. Nonetheless we Ultras support our team to the bitter end.
