I know I shouldn’t say this, but…

The other day, I mentioned to a friend that this team gave me some real 1999 vibes, as in: they could be a surprise contender. I hope I don’t jinx the club by saying that, and I hesitate to get too excited this early.

But that first series sure was fun, wasn’t it?
