(Nats: then there were two!)
“Been a long time. We fight the fight every year to try to do it and it’s sweet to get back for the guys that have been, but I was most excited for our guys that haven’t been.”
“I took a mental image of that scoreboard last year and I think that’s what drove me the last twelve months. Unbelievable drive in that locker room, unbelievable leadership in the locker room and think we all know what our goal is and we’re not done yet.”
“It’s our dream. We’ve been dreaming about it since we were in middle school as kids together and there’s nothing gonna be like it when we go up there on Friday.”
