The elements were not in our favour. But that didn't stop anyone from playing hard and having fun.

The idea for the game was originally constructed by Bieksa, with the idea that the proceeds from ticket sales would go to various charities. It was a great concept, and it was executed beautifully. I was fortunate enough to attend the game, but rather than just enjoying myself while taking it all in, I decided to take stringent notes. Thus is the life of a heartless, conniving blogger.
