Have you ever played any of the teams in your Playoff bracket? If so, how did those games turn out? If not, which match-up are you most excited about? Why?
We have played 4 of the teams in our bracket this season. Grand Raggidy: W 215-176 Cincinnati: W 221-218 Ohio: L 87-241 Cincinnati: L 173-358 Arch Rival: L 251-189. We are excited to go for best 2 out of 3 against Cincinnati and to play some teams we've never bouted against before.
How have your practices changed since being named one of the teams to make it to the 2013 Playoffs?
In the past we have typically taken all of July off from practices and then started back in August with a light practice schedule until we kick up the intensity in October. This year, we are kicking the intensity back up much earlier of course! We've had an increased focus on cross-training, especially outside of normal practice times. Practices to get ready for playoffs will continue to be what we do best, which is to perfect our style and strategy.
Do you have a loyal following of fans at your home venue? Will any of them be traveling to Playoffs?
The Bleeding Heartland extended family of B and C team skaters, volunteers, family, friends, and fans will be making the 3 hour trek to support the Flatliners. And man, we can be loud!
