Game Day Updates

I love how it’s phrased like a horror movie. “Stormtroopers are all around. Will Detroit survive the night?”

We can also play spoilers!

Oh, I’m getting word that is not how we want to be playing spoiler.

I was hoping this meant we may be seeing Veleno, but he’s apparently not cleared to play yet.

Speaking of spoiling, thanks for spoiling my mood, Jeff!

OK, enough Jeff! I know this is the correct decision unless they are 100% sure he’s ready to play without hurting himself more, but it still sucks.

Keys to the Game

FOUR!

With last game being so bad, I wanted to lighten the mood using a pre-match chant our tennis team decided to use one day without telling me. It made me laugh for a long time, so maybe that’ll help here.

Every team has bad games, even the league’s best. While it can be hard to think about it when it’s happening, this season we had noticeably fewer horrible outings than last season. It’s how you react to them that matters. So the key to today’s game is to put the last one behind us and come out hard tonight.
