Drastic times call for drastic's rally monkey time!

To remake a line from a story made famous in another sport..."There was no joy in mudville, for the mighty Thunder had struck out"...4-2 and 4-0, those were the scores of the first two games of the National Conference Finals Series between the Stockton Thunder and Idaho Steelheads, and suffice to say, none of the 4 spots belonged to the Thunder.  So the Thunder come back to Stockton for games 3, 4 and hopefully 5, backed into a need of something special...something out of the ordinary...

...yes, we could just break out that old staple the rally towel...but come on, who doesn't use that.  The Thunder are somehow inexplicably down two games to none to Idaho....Idaho!! The same state that's given us a U.S. Senator who tries to do things in public restrooms that should be done in the privacy of one's own home. No no no...we need something more powerful, something proven to rally any team it gets behind...yes, we need...the rally monkey!!!

Yep...the rally monkey is the only thing that can save the Thunder from the 2-0 hole they find themselves in (well, that and maybe scoring some goals...but us fans can't control that) the Spot is issuing a call to action for all Thunder fans, and valley sports fans in general...the Thunder find themselves one step away from playing for a title...for everyone who complains that well, Stockton is Stockton, this is your chance to get behind something that Stockton can be proud of...that we can all point to and say "yep, we're playing for the title" if you haven't done so already, get your tickets for Wednesday's game (7pm start time at the Stockton Arena), show up, and cheer on the Thunder to a game three win.  The Spot will be there with his rally monkey, will you?
