Indoors Recap – Team by Team

You would think I’d be getting tired of Indoors, considering I’ve written like 4-5 articles on the tournament, but I’m not.  I’m back as promised for the last Indoors recap until we can finally put this tournament to rest (even though I will miss it dearly).  My last Indoors article went through the Studs and…

Indoors Recap: Studs, Duds, and 10 Random Observations

Writing up…. ON A TUESDAY.  If you didn’t get that reference, you need to go to the club more often.  Anyways, it’s been two days since Indoors finished, and I’ve already taken plenty of heat for not getting this out sooner.  Last year, I had recaps after every day! Man, I must have been really…

ASwizzle’s Indoors X-Factors, Wild Cards, and 10 Things to Watch

If you thought we were done beating the dead horse that is Indoors, you were wrong.  #IndoorsWeek is about to get super intense at 11:30AM Central time tomorrow, and that means I have some time to get one last preview out.  We’ve been through team by team (twice) and went matchup by matchup, but what…

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…
