CTC Podcast 161 – Playoffs???

It feels like in the last couple years we always get to the point where we have to ask: is this team going to make the playoffs?

Welp, we’ve finally arrived at the beginning of a new season and things look very different for the team in teal. No Jumbo (sadface), no Melkman (happy face), and basically no bottom 6. Oh and our defense is aging like they just drank from the wrong cup in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. So, we’ve got our thoughts on the season to come. Enjoy! And apologies for hearing me playing with poker chips. I forgot that even if I muted myself on discord, OBS doesn’t care.
