Back In The Saddle

By Glenn T, published on Jul 29, 2009

...to feel that rush, that power again. And I did. The date for tryouts was rapidly approaching and impossibly, I was ready.But then I thought about what I really missed about being a part of the Clippers Fan Patrol. I first auditioned for the team less than three weeks after moving to Los Angeles. I was completely new in town, with no friends, and no idea what I was getting into (in the city or with the Clips).
