New Year, New Team.... and...

Sorry no post for the entire past year or this season. Hectic to say the least.

But, in light of tonight's upcoming championship game:

The Cactus Shadows Frozen Falcons vs. The Cactus Cobras

Here is a promo video I made to show at church this morning. Matt, my son, is part of a pretty big church group - kids from various high-schools, hopefully, we can convince a few of them to show up tonight and make some noise.

View it or download it as a windows media file here.
To download, right mouse-click and select "save target as".

If every player can get 2 kids to show up who would not have normally, we can get an extra 30+ kids in the stands.

Let's do what we can...
