On March 9th, the “freshest game on ‘grass’” returns for more insane Indoor Hurling with the Tacoma Hounds! The draft is complete, the jerseys are ordered, and everyone’s eyein’ that single-digit-day countdown to the best show in T-Town.
Who will challenge the Panther’s precedent for a port-side, perfect run on their way to hoisting last Fall’s inaugural Cup? Which of Season 2’s new faces are poised for a breakout rookie campaign? With the field’s fantastic frenzy often witnessing at least a score per minute, there’s never a safe moment to look away from the action.
The latest quest for Indoor immortality pits three new captains against each other: Kris’ Unicorn Wranglers, Kurt’s Salty Pretzels, and Nash’s Trashfires. A round of Hounds & Hurling trivia determined the draft order, with the “feat of mental strength” replacing last year’s adjusted long jump competition. Shout out to Wingman Brewery for hosting the second Draft Night event!
