The Men of Teal opened the preseason tonight with a victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Thanks to the kindness of a friend, we found ourselves with four tickets and decided to take in the festivities. A good time was had by all. Lincoln and I were impressed with the across-the-lane alley oop the Hornets' coaches drew up. Jack Henry was impressed with the constant stream of candy, food, and beverages his mom provided.
