We would close our eyes, listen to the music and visualize the game.
We would sit at the edge of our benches, rock our heads, and chomp at the bit.

The door would open, light would push back the darkness, and we would clamor for the entrance, spill out of the locker room and rush our field of play in frenzy of hoots, whoops, and hollers.
