Jesse and Travis

Jesse and Travis

The Swarm home opener is just two weeks away and we got season tickets for Christmas! We’re sitting right on the glass at midfield (right next to the penalty box in Section 104, where Jesse will be able to keep an eye on her favorite player, Travis Hill, pictured above). Travis is the cousin of Katie’s best friend back in New York (Alaina Hill Marlin). He said to be sure to say hi to Alaina and to send her his picture. So there you go, Alaina. Travis says hi.

Jesse and I had a chance to spend a day with the players and new team owners at a season ticket-holder event the other day. It was good to visit with the players and to have the opportunity to get to know the new owners. Plus, I won a couple of jerseys in the door prize drawings. All in all, not a bad day. The next morning, Jesse talked me into getting up before dawn and driving her down to the last day of training camp for the Swarm, where we had the chance to meet some other die-hard fans and to wish the guys well before they headed out of town.

Go Swarm! Here’s hoping we make the playoffs again this year…
