It's finally here.
Knuckles and Unicorn are unable to be here with everybody else, but B-Roy, AK-47, Grateful Shved, Wisconsin Stiemer, and Bud will pick up the slack.
Will this finally be the year where we don't have to start talking about draft boards in December? Will the team have something to play for in April? When will the unicorn make his way back onto the court? Will the reign of Pektropolis bring about a James Harden contract dilemma at 600 First Avenue? Will Pour Decisions finally start brewing enough beer so I can get a growler of Pubstitute every weekend? Important questions have been asked and must be answered.
Also, seriously, Pour Decisions is the business. I mean Surly is good and all (mainly Abrasive Ale), but holy crap, PD is the local brewery that really matters. It's the new unofficial official Hoopus Beer...if you can find it.
Time for predictions. Leave your markings in the comments. May the luckiest person win.

Well folks, cut and paste away. We'll compare notes at the end of the season.
PS: I would be remiss if I didn't mention just how important Tim was to this site before the start of the new season. Whatever money is made off of this site is donated to the Minnesota Humane Society, the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention, and the DAV in memory of Tim. If you are in the giving mood, I highly suggest one of these 3 fine charities.

Random Comment You Want Everyone To Read: Thank you to the very kind reader who sent me a case of Pliny. It was much appreciated. As soon as Pour Decisions gets their tap room up and running on a regular basis, I'll return the favor with an equally tasty beer.
