First! Secondly, I’m just glad Julio isnt ruled out. That was a scare on Sunday and we honestly looked different without him. Still effective but not explosive.

Sorry DOL, didn’t mean to strike a nerve there. I wasnt trying to make fun of the headline in a malicious way. The way the headline reads is funny though. My comment was a reference to the Funkadelic song, “I got a thing, you got a thing, everybody’s got a thing”….although it would be funny if I actually didn’t realize it was an injury report and thought that you were breaking the news that Lousaka Polite has a hamstring in his leg
