    Des Moines actually has a decent oyster restaurant. Let’s go!

    Thanks for the update Joe G. If you and Andrew ever have a chance to go to a game, please post your findings. I’d love to learn more about the team.

    Man. I was hoping they would become a part of the Fort Wayne Mad Ants since I go to college 2 minutes from the Memorial Coliseum where they play. I would have been going all the time.

    maybe or hopefully we can find a valuable player on the team somewhere, but that’s if this stupid lockout would be over already.
