The Unprofessional Foul-Up: Less than Two Weeks!


Yes, we are very excited about our first ever UF roadtrip! We are packing up next week to head to Baltimore, Maryland, for Chelski versus AC Meelan, a trip that we have dubbed The Unprofessional Foul-Up. Find out more about our merry adventure after the hop, where we also need your help with local Baltimore pubs.

Most of us writers will be there, along with a devoted yet ragtag group of commenters (you know who you are). For those who are wondering, the plan is to arrive before the game for some tailgating. Next week I'll announce our ETA and exact location once we know when/where they'll be letting people in. Then, it's on to section 134 of the M&T Stadium in the AC Milan "fan zone," where 30-odd of us will enjoy a competitive competent match. And perhaps even Oguchi Onyewu's debut in red and black?

After the match, we are planning to retire to a local drinking establishment. Which is where we need your help. So far the suggestions have been the Wharf Rat and the Downtown Sports Exchange/Balls (wish I were making up that name). What do you folks think? We'd prefer to stay close to the stadium so that we can walk/stagger.

More soon. And we'll even try to do some live twittering and picture-taking from the game.

I'll be on the other side of the stadium, in section 115 with the Russian mobsters.

I'm currently in the process of re-watching The Wire. Best. Show. Ever.

Dammit, I wish I could be there, guys...

My youngest has eye surgery the day before.

I didn't think to get a hotel, so I'm limiting myself to pregaming so that I can be crisp enough to drive home.

Sleep in the bar between 4-9am. You'll be good to go.

I'm going to catch Chelsea-Inter at the Rose Bowl in a couple of weeks. I wonder if anyone is actually going to try...

bar wise, just an after game drink or heavy drinking?

most of the bars near the stadium are douchy and "bro"ful.

i always forget, Barra Brava will be showing up en masse. We've got a main group of 50+ coming out (lots more straglers), got a lot reserved, and will be bbqing and drinking as heavily as normal, well worse because we can finally express our hatred for one another's European club teams.

Mr. Aggro - email us at the UF inbox so maybe we can coordinate a meet-up somewhere in there.
