They will come once again to their ritual gathering place tomorrow night ... across the stadium parking lots ... past the aromas from the tailgate hibachis that promise reunion but also can warn of the possibility of the condemned's last meal. They will climb the stadium steps while the beat of hope hammers strongly within their hearts even as the burden of history rests heavily on their shoulders.
