Push The Point #27: Wizard Money & Grand Finals Preview

September 24th, 2019

Grand Finals have finally arrived, and Ramses and Lobosco are here with everything you need to know to know for the 2019 championships. We start by discussing this week’s news, primarily the flurry of coaching changes as some teams pursue other options. We also discuss the Los Angeles Gladiators’ parting with their management group Sentinels, its possible causes, and what it means for the team. We also discuss how this impacts their coaching staff, who are also seeking other opportunities.

Next, we discuss the festivities and announcements for Grand Finals weekend, including casting and hosting talent. We talk about the festivities and fun set to go down in Philadelphia, and we’re most looking forward to from the event.
We also give our Grand Finals Preview, breaking down the matchup between Vancouver and San Francisco Shock position by position. We analyse the team’s season progression, highlight which performances we’re excited for, and give our final predictions for the game’s results.

Lastly, we donate some F’s in the Chat for Blizzard’s recently dropped World Cup merchandise. We talk about the lack of creativity and variety in the team’s jerseys, and give a special mention to a particularly iffy attempt at women’s merchandise.
