We are quick to lend a helping hand to ANY team but especially if they are located in the midst of corndogs and butterheads. Or, as I like to think of it, HEAVEN.

We had a blast seeing it, talking about it, and being a part of some of it! Here's a little video from the field so you can be a part of it too!
