Matt Bishop vs. Ben Thurmond
If you're a Surf fan, you can't be feeling very good about your team's chances in a short series in which Brian Rodaway has already lost. Nonetheless, as we saw in last year's playoffs, it's quite possible to win the first game of a 5-game series and lose, so let's keep the foot on the accelerator, eh?
As good as the Spirit have been on the road this year, I'd feel a lot more comfortable only having to win 1 out of 3 down there.
I don't even want to THINK about the possibility of this being the last game ever at Fraser Field -- gahh -- and a win tonight makes that scary possibility far less likely. So this is a big one.
