Do you have a mascot? If so, what's its name? And will the mascot be with you at Playoffs?
Frank T. Flamingo is our league mascot, and you're sure to see inflatable Franks in the stands in Richmond!
What was the turning point for your league to make it to a playoff this season? Was there a BIG WIN that pushed your team over the edge?
We didn't focus on a particular bout this season, so we didn't have that one big game or turning point. Rather, we tried to look at the big picture and give our team a very specific vision and goal for each bout.
Has your league experienced any retirements, transfers or injuries in the past year that have made a substantial difference in your league’s play and performance?
We had a pretty substantial turnover between 2012 and 2013. A couple Tantrums moved away and a few others retired, but we had a lot of new skaters ready to take the reins. While 2013 has been somewhat of a rebuilding year for our team, we're really excited about the dynamic and direction we're going.
Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.
