Like any family, we have fought, fumed, and argued – sometimes with remarkable intensity.  But we’ve also had a lot of fun and shared many of our lives’ most important events together.  Without the league to connect us, I doubt we would have maintained friendships the way we have for so many years.   To me, it would be beyond sad to lose that, and it depresses me to think about a summer without the USML.
