LOL! The story certainly does have an "It's a Wonderful Life" feel to it, doesn't it?This is just a heartwarming story and such great news during the holiday season. May be Hoban who is affectionately known as the 'Little engine that could" will prosper and actually compete in the play-offs . That one three point loss after 234 straight in the playoffs surely stings and hurts their self esteem not to mention that other loss to Iggy . This incredible gesture will surely give downtrodden Hoban a boost . heartwarming indeed .
How many of the Akron Public teams don't even have their own stadiums? I know East and Kenmore-Garfield don't. Most of the league games are played at UA. But Hoban gets money for practice fields? Seriously.
