“They kept cheering no matter what, no matter how much we were down,” Parrish observed. “To the end, they kept cheering.”

“Hopefully we’ve been great for the city,” McEwen said. “They’ve been great for us. They don’t even know how much their support means to us. Coming out and packing the stands means the world to us. Hopefully we put on a good show for 26 games we played in front of them.”
“We meant a lot to them,” Jones added. “And they meant a lot to us.”
