It was a exactly a week ago that we won the Kup, so I decided to chronicle our playoff run in song like I did when ChicagoNow won the 2012 AAJA Trivia Bowl.
I feel like a rapper starting a mixtape with “this aint a diss track”. For the record: this article is just for the team- I’m not gonna put it on my social media. If anyone from another team should stumble upon it- I’m not trying to start anything. At one point or another this season or post season, you all had us down and out and you certainly have our full respect. That’s why we were so happy to win.
This list is more or less my personal soundtrack throughout our playoff run and are reflective of the emotions I remember feeling out there.
