If you've watched us over the last few years, you probably are already aware..but anytime pete and i are sitting up here in our santa hants, it means the year is coming to an end, and it's time to do some reflecting..
Yeah 2020 has been one for the books..in a lot of ways, it's been a year we'd like to forget for many reasons, most of which can be attributed to covid-19...but despite the pandemic, there were still plenty of positive things to take out of the last 12 months..and justin, that is certinaly the case for our local sports scene..
Yeah, even though there were no sports for a span of about six months there, 2020 gave us several good stories, and a ton of highlights..on that note, over the next two nights, pete and i are going to bring you the best of the best from the year that was..
