I really enjoyed how lighthearted it was, even though some of it was jokes a lot of people outside the program may not get (but part of that made people watching maybe feel more a part of the organization). Shane going into how he got a good grade in a 102-level writing course and that means he's now going to send a letter to Nike about a sponsorship is pretty funny. That shows a side of the team maybe most don't see.
Mostly though, I thought Dan did a great job showing how it was the friendship that brought the team through this. No matter what happend to the team after Chicago 2011, they would have been friends. It's like no matter what happened on the field, they had each others back to the end.
I was surprised they didn't go more into the UWL, but I'm thinking thats a combination of Dan probably not having the footage, the PSP just being the more visable series, and time. I believe the UWL did a lot for Vicious as a whole. The biggest part being that it reminded Vicious what it's like to win and how to win. The UWL was a huge part of the last year and it's something that will be huge into the future (I hope... UWL is fun).
Overall, it's great and worth the $5.
thanks for the kind words and taking the time to comment!!
Absolutely-this could have easily been two hours long! lol Delving more into the Vicious and the UWL.
The UWL was tricky, Matt & I, and Ledz & I discussed it, and it was more of a storytelling decision...also combined with the fact that the one UWL we did film was the one event Vicious skipped...lol...but we thought it kinda further complicated the story, especially to a casual viewer. Its like "wait. What's this? It looks totally different..." and now we are obligated to explain a bit of woodsball, ect, to the audience.
We love Tom Cole and commend what he's doing with the UWL, so we no way meant to slight his league, and hope nobody takes the exclusion that way.
thanks for watching!
