    That's why I still think to this day, this club's greatest success has been its marketing/PR efforts that are unrelated to footballing activities (lets decide to ignore the Lampard fiasco).

    They've come in and dominated this city, leaving the Red Bulls in the dust. From doing this, to the soccer field initiative, their marketing campaigns (that something along these lines video was fantastic, and the hypnokit jersey reveal), to getting involved in the Chinese New Year Parade, etc.

    I hope they continue to get involved in other items. I haven't paid a whole lot of attention, but I'd like to see a decent NYCFC presence in and around the NY marathon this year (partly selfishly because I'm running it).

    The Red Bulls have done nothing close to what that team has put together.

    I walked by after work. Seems like fun if you're playing in it, not so much if you're not.

    I’m not quite yet Team 50, but this week my daughter showed me how to navigate Instagram. I just spent the past 10 minutes looking at NYCFCs social media stream on this event. It’s great and hypes the event and the presence there a lot more than it is. This Is a job well done by Patricof

    Oh, and for the record, fuck the RBs.

    Sounds like a really cool event. Great job by the team to think outside the box and really take a risk on something. Hopefully it's being executed as well as the social media makes it seem, and hopefully it does raise the profile of the club a bit.

    I stopped by around 6 PM. Talked to a few familiar faces from the club. Seemed like fun if you were playing or if you were new to the club. There was a good line for a free piece of merchandise. Definitely a good marketing play. Also spoke with John Patricof again. I think he is doing a great job with the club.

    I spoke to the VP for tickets. One thing i got from him was how amazed they were with the turn out at citi field on 10 days notice and that they know the Connecticut game was a huge mistake. I get the sense that the club is a lot more prepared for contingency’s then in the past.

    Missed your chance to tell him the Citi Field turnout was for the food venders.

    Cool. What threw me is that the person who used to run it for many years is the wife of a buddy of mine.

    I played yesterday but don't think it was actually for 30 minutes, probably closer to 20-25. Had a great time though.
