Life can get a little confusing at times. Especially the week after your team has won their first postseason series since 1998 (We’re not counting 2020, because, you know) and you’re still on cloud nine. A regularly scheduled reminder is very convenient. So here’s a refresher of what happened during the last week in faith.
