Welcome to my first post. A blog dedicated to addicts who feel like there is no hope left or are getting there.
Why at that point?

But something about that season made us come together as one, and understand that we could make school history. Until one night when we decided to throw a party after our last regular season game before the playoffs and that’s where the story begins…
