Wednesday night was rough. It caused flashbacks of last season.

It’s in the past. It’s time to move on.

The beloved have to come out of the gate strong tonight against Charlotte and not give a team that has yet to find its legs this season a chance to do just that. While the legs be a little heavy and the knocks picked up Wednesday still fresh (Hertzog?),…

July 4 2015

The 2017 season is upon us which means the mess that was 2016 is finally fully behind us. The season opener and home opener combination is like the first day of school after summer break. We’re returning to our well known sections and saying hi to people we haven’t seen in a while.

Everyone is undefeated on opening day.

I talked to a number of Steel Army members over the offseason and inevitably the conversation circled around to the question of “have you renewed your season tickets yet?”. More than any other offseason than I can remember the response I’d get would be silence, a darn out “um…”, a sigh,…

Going to games became something that more closely resembled work than pleasure. We never want to see it get that bad again. But, we’ve had a couple of months to…
