Hey gang, just stopping by to offer my congratulations. It was an incredibly hard fought series, and you can't ask for anything more than the chance to play one game to decide it all. If there's any small condolence I can take from all this, it's coming from Recchi's hometown. Nice to see him end an incredible career on the highest note. Our corporate overlords at SB Nation were cool enough to give us full access behind the scenes, and it was amazing to see how this whole thing played out. The media on both sides (and the so-called impartial observers) had a lot to say about this, a massive chunk of it negative. History will bear out that this series was no dirtier, one way or the other than every other final. The noise is just amplified now.
One of the things we love over at NM is good interaction with our SBN brothers and sisters, and on behalf of my fellow writers there, we want to thank you for coming over and contributing to the discussion. We share some history now, and while we're not on the side we want to be, it was still an amazing season and once the pain subsides, we can get to accept and enjoy that. Enjoy the party to come. You deserve it.
