It’s crazy to think that after months and months of waiting, the season is finally here. When we walked out of Cass after the DPS Showcase in September, it seemed like the longest offseason was setting in, like winter had already arrived.
And yet, there we were on Saturday in Berkley, supporting the boys to a rather resounding rout of the Muskegon No-League FC. It all seemed a bit rusty, like the muscle memory was there but the skills weren’t quite as refined, the chants were quite as crisp. It still felt a bit like the offseason.
The final whistle blew, the teams shook hands, and the reality might not have set in quite yet that the 2016 season has begun. Then Caesar, our fearless leader, came over to the supporter section, grabbed a megaphone, and called us to support the boys to victory in the Open Cup game on Wednesday.
Reality has set in. The 2016 season is upon us. Three games in five days.
To your battle stations, supporters. Detroit City has called and we will answer.
