    Add as many as you'd like. Here's the five I keep coming back to.


    #5 A great battle against Dallas to almost beat them and advance in the Open Cup.

    #4 Beating Newcastle at The Bowl.

    #3 Winning the championship in the first season in Orlando. The championship match was epic in any way you can think of: largest crowd of the season, great conditions, great goals scored, and nonstop terrific bite and spirit from the OC squad throughout the whole match, both extra time periods, and big brass ones to win in it the shootout. A great night all the way around.

    #2 The moment the first goal was scored at the Disney Classic back in February. Can't remember who scored it (Neal?), but OC scored in the end where our supporters were, and the OC scorer went straight over to the supporters stand and they all went nuts. They made a lot more noise then you'd have expected from a hundred or so people. The players seemed to love it.

    #1 The first win in the first ever home game, Saturday, April 9th. We got there early and stayed for a bunch of the on-field hanging around after the game. We had to have been there nearly four hours and the atmosphere was electric for most of that time. OC whacked FC New York 3-zip on a night we hit the woodwork about three times and easily could have made it 5-0 or 6-0. OC scored against the run of play, a very nice setpiece header, and a great, gritty scramble in the box for the first ever home goal. And the franchise put the cherry on the sundae with the fireworks show and some beautifully very loud music at full time to cap the whole event. It was fantastic. It was eight months ago and every detail is as fresh as it if happened this morning.

    2012 oughta be a blast.
