  1. hey guys…good to see you at lucky bar on saturday bergmann…today was gutting, but somehow more appropriately irish. why qualify just to lose in the round of 16 when you can have yet another injustice for the ages to add to the repertoire? still, was a gutsy performance, and they deserved better. like the blog.
