So much love, it’s like we’re in Portland.

Today is Thanksgiving in the US. This is my first Thanksgiving at home in two years, so I am super grateful for that and won’t be around much this weekend. Still, I want to take this opportunity to thank some people that have been a big help to Cross-Conference.

Tiffany Weimer, for your encouragement, ideas, and sense of humor. You jumped in and gave us a push when we needed it.

Shek Borkowski, again for the encouragement, but also for not pulling punches when it comes to your analysis of women’s soccer. Someone has to tell it like it is, and you do that well.

Kai Edwards, for taking an interest and inviting us to come watch your team play. We both plan to look into making this happen in the new year.

The Portland Pilots and Santa Clara Broncos, for being so generous with your time and, in some cases, helping us connect with other people in order to make the rivalry project happen. Your alumni, current players, SIDs, and coaches were very accommodating and great to work with.

The 2010 Notre Dame Fighting Irish, for thrashing UNC out of the NCAA tournament. Enough said.

Alina Garciamendez, for making sure we have a reason to say your name nearly every podcast. It’s like magic.

And on a personal note, I’d like to thank Joan for saying “Let’s wait” when we first started talking about Cross-Conference and “Let’s do it” when it was time to get rolling.
