Observer: At least you're correctly using "storied" in the past tense for Paly, cause they've been pretty bad the past two seasons, including the shortened one last year. It was probably good for them that it was shortened because it could've been ugly.

Actually, both Gunn and Paly were both really good in the season before Covid hit. Sam L forgets one playoff win, and one exciting near win/but loss in the 2nd round to Oak Grove. In the shortened season--with injuries as would be expected without proper pre-season work-outs, everyone was pretty much happy to be playing at all (and without hardly any fans, etc.), so not sure what either of you two are going on about.
