Oh man, that was a heartbreaker. But such is the life of a true fan.

If you're a longtime follower, you may recognize some of those faces from 100 years ago. Well, more like 3 or 4 years ago, in our pre-kid, going-out-on-school-nights days.

We had A BALL catching up. There's nothing like watching the Hogs with good friends.
