We’re still going to have fun in the 2018 season.

It’s almost here and I’m hyped for it.

Minnesota United’s second season in Major League Soccer might go well and we’ll get to see the Loons in the playoffs. Or maybe it will be fifty shades of ugly and we’ll be booing the team off the pitch.

It doesn’t matter.

The offseason took forever. But it’s going to end soon.

I can’t wait to don my jersey and scarf only to sit on the couch for the season opener in San Jose.

I can’t wait to tweet away with you guys during matches.

I can’t wait to look out over TCF Bank Stadium and see a strong crowd assembled for the home opener.

I can’t wait to twirl my scarf on corners.

I can’t wait to sing until I’m hoarse.

I can’t wait to watch Jerome Thiesson, Christian Ramirez, Ethan Finlay, and all of the Loons take the pitch.

I can’t wait to finally write something about a game that matters.

I can’t wait to see how our new arrivals shape up.

I can’t wait for tifos, flags, and marches to matches.

I can’t wait for watch parties and away days.

I can’t wait to shiver in the stands.

I can’t wait to sweat in the stands.

I can’t wait to be incredulous at the referee.

I can’t wait to heckle the opposition’s goalkeeper.

I can’t wait to see a late goal.

I can’t wait for a final whistle to finally blow.

I can’t wait for Wonderwall.

Win, loss, or draw the 2018 season is almost here.

I can’t wait for it.
