Last night was a movie.

And not like one of those cheesy hallmark movies. This one was a cinematic masterpiece that even Christopher Nolan would appreciate.

Gotham FC vs North Carolina had it all. Braces from Midge Purce and Debinha, Carli Lloyd doing Carli Lloyd things, a Jess McDonald jousting header, and oh yeah… to top it off, a game-winning back heel from Evelyne Viens in stoppage time.

It was truly a picture perfect night, one that almost felt normal. The weather was perfect, with the sun setting as the second half began, and unlike any match last year, this game had hundreds of cheering fans in the stands. Really no better way to begin the Gotham FC Era.

Masked up and perched above the press box, I had the best seat in the house to witness it all. And thankfully the pictures didn’t turn out too bad.
