24 million hours watched. That's insane.

8 million? Heh, not quite the Superbowl but it sure as hell puts a lot of other stuff to shame.

Anyway, I went to the finals. The venue and the overall atmosphere were truly amazing.

And that trophy. It was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes.

I'll definitely go again as long as traveling isn't an issue for next season.
