I can’t wait to read all the negative reviews on the 14th. Some put way to much into the spring game.
I for one go for the interaction with the team and to promote my sons lifelong fandom, what I think the event is all about. But glad there seems to be a bit more flavor this year.
The youth clinic should fill up, and the kiddies that miss it will prolly have a parent that wouldn't mind a FREE chance to meet legends . There really may be over 5000. Date I say 8000? Or is that crazy talk?
Love that there is a little hype, this time around.
