But I no longer feel the need to criticize anyone who sees what Stetson does and wants to call it exceptional.

Well, thanks for that.  I’ll settle for this as consolation:

Win one for the Kirbster

If you’re not ready to run through a wall after hearing that, Jack, you dead.

A bookend season

How it started and how it’s going:

Or, to put it another way ($$)

“It seems like for the past three or four months we’ve been looking to see if somebody could beat us,” said Stetson Bennett, “and we just ran out of games.”
