Sure, I am probably a little biased, but people finally took note of our A-team this weekend at The Big O. I mean, the freaking 211-157 score against VRDL? Or the huge win over Montreal? Come on y'all, why do some folks not even know where we're from? Super proud of this amazing team, esp with such a different charter than last year. Great work, y'all!
