We've come a long way, gentlemen. From 0-5, all the way to...just barely winning.
I've had a plaque commissioned. It will set right next to the ones commemorating the first time we reached first place in 2011, and the one commemorating my release from the hospital after the alcohol poisoning that followed 162.
I may have a plaque problem.
Anyways, the point is we've come a long way to get here, and falling back to .500 with Lester taking on Smyly would make me really sad. And also make me not like Lester very much anymore.
