The Taxonomy Cometh

The F leaves Brooklyn at 42 miles per hour, while another streaks towards it from Manhattan... So approach the first arrows fired today, with the first salvo from Mr. Felton. Collision in 3, 2,...

Nicholas lays down some lovely lines, drawing us away from background chatter and towards the center of the contest. Khoi's side remains a relative void--but not for long...

Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by John Nack.
