Feels unbelievably long ago (and it was). Remember going into it just hoping for a point. Still weren't playing anywhere near what we are now. And LA was looking like they were gonna run away with the division/conference. That's completely shifted. Completely.
Still convinced that Toronto loss changed this season for the better.
Dive Fest 2011 continues on Monday.
