Went to the game.

It kind of seemed like everyone had a Conferemce USA and Lockdown hangover.

No energy from the team or the fans.

I hope that isn't the same on Saturday.

Just listened to the audio clip of Jarvis at the press conference.

He sounded pretty pissed off at the reporters. And it's only November
