So there goes another one this year. How many does that make dead during this season? Off the top of my head we must have hit 15 by now.
Gee, I didn't see this one coming!!

And the ABA will be doing a series of things to show how important The Alaska Dream, the state, the city, the fans, the media and everyone there are to the ABA. We hope you will accept our apologies and give The Alaska Dream and the ABA your support. Promise. We will not let you down again. Thank you.
One more time for emphasis:
...Promise. We will not let you down again....
