        No matter how frustrating it gets, I can’t stay mad at UK…. And every time we grab a bunch of players like this it give me hope for next year………..and I keep buying season tickets even though there is this little voice in the back of my head saying “you never learn do you” 🙂
        I guess when you go to UK they teach you to be a masochist and it stays with you for a lifetime..
