To be the Phoenix who has risen from the ashes, you must first have been among the ashes. The first half of this season, we were in the trash heap. In August, we were in ninth place in the Western Conference. Everyone said we were done, finished. Until we weren’t. We began to rise. We said goodbye to Sigi, entered the second Schmetzer era of our club’s history, and signed Lodeiro, Morris found his left foot, Torres returned, and everything came together. We were born anew. It was inspiring to experience. Mid-September, it started looking like Playoffs were a real possibility and our concept team started kicking around ideas for a playoff choreo and eventually decided on the Phoenix display we deployed today.
