I agree. He made some good points, and I thing his expectations are correct. There's a pretty good foundation, but we should expect a few bumps in the road too.

Lots of newspaper articles today, which is a good sign. The Riverhawks are only expecting 500 or so tonight, but at least his expectations are realistic. McGinn says he's going to add a few folks--including marketing--this week. I'd expect Jacksonville to be the stronger draw tonight. (And, with a decent pregame article, maybe he'll be surprised by the turnout.)

It'll be interesting to see how Reading does this weekend; I suspect they'll do well. Looks like the PBL is in the midst of updating their site, which is a good thing. And, after the weekend concludes, we should have a better idea on how the teams stack up on the court.
