Does your league have a motto, or words that it lives by? What is it / what are they? What does it mean to your league?
"Taking it to the streets!" This actually has a story behind it. When traveling to a game we found that several ladies actually had an affinity for Michael McDonald and the Doobie Brothers. So much so, that their impersonation was impeccable. Singing “Taking it to the streets” coupled with air piano, and later adding other air instruments gave us all a good laugh and something to really hold onto. Taking it to the streets. That's what we sing. That's what we do. And that's what put on the track.
What are some game highlights from your travel team season this year?
Two games come to mind:
Starting out the season with a win against one of our best rivals, Nashville.
Our loss to Gotham: while losing sucks, we felt like we did a great job with our strategy and helped to reinforce our improvement this season.
How have your practices changed since being named one of the teams to make it to the 2013 Playoffs?
We had added practices, scheduled more scrimmages, and rededicated ourselves to skating 150% each time.
Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.
