Hey… how about some actual players showing up in Burlington, VT for a big championship celebration? Red's Army reader Roman was there today… and sends along this email:
Just got back from the trophy tour celebration in Burlington, VT, attended by a pretty good crowd for a weekday. TA, Rondo + Perk were there, plus Lucky and a couple dancers (who were gorgeous, about 3 feet tall, and freezing). Senator Leahy gave a speech, Mayor Kiss gave a speech, and then Jeff Twiss, a Vermontah, gave a pretty good speech until the players came out and the crowd drowned him out. The players all said a few things about coming back next year with another trophy, then joked around with each other and signed some autographs. I gave up on the line for pictures with the trophy, still about a block long after an hour. I'll get it next year. I did see the only other guy I've ever seen in a Powe shirt too.
One of our Powe shirts? That would be AWESOME! Probably not though.
Roman sent along that photo up top… and these two:
Thanks Roman! And thanks to all of our readers in Vermont!
