PLAYOFFS BABY!

hype-train

The Hounds lost last night in a frustrating fashion. The game was such a mixed bag that ultimately didn’t really matter anyways since we were already locked into 3rd. After mulling it over all night I’m just going to saw screw it and focus on this coming weekend. IT’S PLAYOFF TIME! We’re back in the playoffs after a two year “break” and have our first home game in 14 years to boot. Let’s get this hype train rolling!

The one good thing about the loss is it’s given us probably the best match up for the first round of the playoffs. The trash from across the state are coming to town again.

Last Game Watch Party (New Location)

birmingham-bridge-tavern

With the draw on Wednesday the Hounds are now locked into 3rd place in the Eastern Conference. No matter what happens on Sunday that won’t change, so you could say we have nothing to play for (for a good reason for once). We’re not going to let that get in the way of a good time though, so we’re going to have one final watch party during the regular season.

Join us at the Birmingham Bridge Tavern this Sunday to watch the Hounds take on the Baby Bulls. We had to chance locations because of conflicts with that other football team in town, but on the plus side we’re able to hit up another awesome place just down the street. The party starts at 4, kickoff is at 5. There will be a couple drink specials as well as a Smoked Pork…
