Take a Bow
The boys did it gracefully, with conviction and dignity.
What was needed here was a convincing sweep. Needed for what? In order to demonstrate the praise of which they are entirely worthy. They’ve earned this praise throughout the year, and have been nothing short of humble about it all. No trash-talk, no self-praise, only looking forward to the next shift, and the next game. never looking back.
But tonight, they do get to look back. Tonight, they may celebrate the entire season and post-season, in which they’ve demonstrated the power of a strong character and of hard work.
Many of the players have had to suffer through serious injuries as a consequence of this hard work, and especially deserve the praise that is coming.
