MLQ Preview: Championship Weekend

Photo credit: Jessica Jiamin Lang Photography.

Editor’s note: A few weeks ago, Ryan Sparks tasked FBI staff with crafting an MLQ Preview wherein each team could only be described in approximately three words. We decided to make it a little more interesting by allowing each interested staff member a shot at contributing on each team so long as they restricted themselves to the word limit.

Also: “Jefferson Steelflex” is the chosen pseudonym for this article for new staff writer “Chester Steakknife”—which is, yes, also a pseudonym. Enjoy that hot ball of confusion.
