It's going to be a long summer, thinking about what we let slip by. I've had friends in the league who had to go through this and they always said how bad it was. Well, you don't know until you do it. It's not fun at all. It's a new season, a new start, the most exciting time of the year, and we're not a part of it. You always want to be a part of it."
