What's next?

We finished the season in 3rd. We also finished with a win. Is this the turnaround we've looked for over the 5 straight losses that preceded it? If so, then we've got a good shot doing something exciting in the playoffs. Last year the Pirates won the season pennant and congrats to them again. In the 2008 post season play, the 3rd place Oilers marched through with 5 straight wins to take the playoff title. And by the way, they won their last regular season game also.


Are we ready to play or just want to go home? I'm ready to hang in there and have to believe the players are too. We've got the talent and whatever happened over the course of 5 losses is behind us. It's gone. There's a clean slate in front of us. The first task is to take care of business and put the Bobcats down. The Greyhounds are waiting on the side lines for the winner. Expect the Hounds to send a couple of Fans over just for good measure, it's in their character. Our Fans will be in the Yard also. Pay no mind to fans who doubt, just show them what you're really made off. Win or lose, I'm proud of all our guys. The league's season has been competitive throughout and the guys hung in there the whole way. Every team went through their own slumps and came out of it. Now is our turn to get the train going again. Fire it up?
