For your information, when i walk out my door in this great city, birds sing and the sun shines bright. people greet me with a smile and a nice lady buys me a coffee and a bagel with lox.

i also might have walked through a lot of second hand weed smoke.

And rats. You forgot the rats.

Recently I attended the PHX Rising @ LV Lights match in Vegas, and I wore the sugar skull tshirt, and a Third Rail scarf - I got stopped by multiple workers there to talk 'shop,' one guy even finger-gunning me saying "Third Rail - love ittttt" !

I talked on the way out to another LV employee who is a founding member of the Phila. Union, he had great tales to tell about their Open Cup woes, and said he'd link up free tickets to a match next time I'm there, so, yea - footy is the best family.

On my walks around downtown I've seen a few NYCFC kits here and there. It's always nice. Sometimes I'll say "Go City!" NYCFC just doesn't roll off the tongue as well.
Yeah, when I have given shoutouts, it usually is "Go City", which I don't really like doing, but it does roll off the tongue the easiest for what's more recognizable (i.e., I could say go Pigeons, but not as many people are onto that).

At an Italian festival up here in MA last fall, i got two shout outs for my Pirlo City shirt, both guys said "c'mon New York" which I think is smooth and someone wearing a jersey should get it.

The thing is, say it in MA and people assume there's a reason for it. Say it in NYC and you sound like someone with a disorder who randomly shouts out vaguely encouraging things. Especially true in a city that has at least 2 teams in every sport so just calling out NY instead of Giants or Mets or Knicks or whatever is not normal.

But I don't have a better suggestion. "Cmon City" is even more generic. I agree with LionNYC LionNYC that N-Y-C-F-C does not exactly flow off the tongue.

Which is why if I see someone in team gear I usually just stare silently and maybe they catch my eye and then I point to their shirt or hat and smile and they think I'm a weird stalker.

LOL That's basically what I do when I see someone.

My brother jokes and says "oh you went to a nickfick game today?" that works pretty easily

i think a simple "NY IS BLUE" rolls off the tongue, isn't confused with man city, and other fans know exactly what you're talking about.
