    I had an old ford, hand me down car once. It was my first car and I had such Big Dreams about that car. The places it would take me, the girls I was going to pick up with it. I loved that car. But age and mileage did it in. This team seems to be in need of a “tune-up.” They are still a fairly talented team but maybe a kick of the tires or the slamming of the doors would help redirect them back to the way they played earlier in the season.
