Now, I usually say, "Save me a seat.", but I will be taping the match and the hosts will have a seat in the crow's nest for me. Ryan Hills is unable to make the match. He mumbled something to me about having to work, paying the mortgage and feeding his family. Alas, we now know where his priorities are. Don't expect much in commentary from me. But I will at least try to keep you updated on the score and match time.
