Appreciation Thread: Jonah Ballow and John Focke

I'm sure many of you have noticed the incredible work that Jonah Ballow has been putting in for the past year and a half now. For those of us who followed his work last year, we've probably all seen the drastic improvement.

I'm not sure how this story goes, but I assume it's something like this:

Mike Trudell leaves us for the sunny beaches and warm winters of LA (he did a terrific job while he was here).  Without many followers and a pretty low budget, the Wolves organization promotes/hires/etc Jonah to take on the workload.  In the beginning it was pretty apparent that Jonah was new to this and didn't have much to work with. The amount of work he put it and the improvements he's made deserve more than a brief mention here and there. So I've decided to dedicate a thread to his work. Kahn has talked about how he wants the Wolves organization to be more visible to the fans and it seems as if he has given Jonah 90% of that responsibility. There have been the occasional interviews and tours, of course, but Jonah is clearly carrying the organization here. Well done and thank you, Jonah.

But like the title mentions, John Focke also gets some credit here. I'll link to the latest video here, but the two of them have had an ongoing show entitled: 5-on-5: Around the League for I don't even know how long. They have some good material and keep it entertaining for the entire time (it's generally around 15 minutes).

The reason I am mentioning them this week is because they just posted their most recent video in which they mention that they are now sponsored by Adidas. Glad to see their hard work has not gone unnoticed. I can only hope that they are the ones receiving the bonus and the free items for their work instead of the Wolves organization.

Once again, well done guys. And thanks for the entertainment!
