nothing gets me more geared up for fall than soccer and oktoberfeest.

Autumn weather has finally descended upon the Ohio Valley at the tail end of this week, and it’s got me all psyched out.

First off, this weekend is Oktoberfest here in Zinzinnati — one of the best reasons to live in this very German city — so I’ll be spending a majority of my weekend partaking in many fine craft brews and wearing lederhosen.

But secondly, the onset of fall also has me totally fiending for footy (then again, what doesn’t?). Breathing in the crisp, cool air this morning had me reminiscing of early morning weekend games growing up, playing under the lights on Saturday’s nights in high school, and getting up in the still morning hours during college to watch Premier League matches before my mid-day games. Although to be honest, I still do all of those things now, so I’m not really sure why I’m “reminiscing.”

So to get you amped up as much as I am for the weekend, I’ve thrown together some of my favorite links from the last week for the latest installment of TWOL.
