Let’s get one thing clear out of the gate. This is not anyone’s game. If the winner of New Hampshire versus Kansas City were to win this game, it would make the Miracle on Ice a mere footnote in the great book of sporting upsets.

Gotham looked fallible against Bay Area and Texas at champs in Milwaukee, and that gives succour to those looking for uncertainty as to the Hydra’s destination this year–which includes us.

Looking back, there were signs of that fallibility against Minnesota in Asheville last year, so we’re looking forward to seeing how the seemingly resurgent Minnesota do this time around if they meet up in the final.

There really is very little new to say about the Gotham machine. In lieu of tired platitudes, we suggest you enjoy their own introduction instead.

They are looking as strong as ever but haven’t been fully tested this year. However, their other putative final opponents, Denver, have run them closer than anyone else this year in their 241-124 loss at the start of the season at Thin-Air Throwdown.

Want more words on them? The inimitable Thomas Gerbasi has some on the matter in his preview of the tournament from Gotham’s perspective over on the GGRD website.
