Indoor Nationals – Match-Up by Match-up

Third Indoors Preview, third day of the work week.  I did mention it was #IndoorsWeek, correct?  And the bigger question is, why hasn’t anyone else gotten in on this hashtag?  I just wanna be trending on twitter for once (or verified).  The past two previews have given you readers more of an overview of Indoors…
