Team exciting addition for Everett

What a treat we experienced Tuesday night at the Everett Explosion’s inaugural game.

Not only was the basketball on the highest level, the whole evening was exciting.

The opening was what we would have expected at any pro game or even a concert.

Everett is lucky to have another sports team to play in the Events Center. And we are lucky to have this great team playing so close to home.

No driving to Seattle, paying a high price for parking and a late night during the week.

The play was fast and the players are great. Having local athletes playing makes you really connect to the team.

Thank you, Nathan Mumm, for bringing this exciting sport and great players and coaches to Everett.

Happy season ticket holders,

Kathy and Rod Liming
