If you are a young person, a student, the last thing in the world you want to think about is friggin’ school – but on the flip side, if you are a parent, you might already be ready to send your kiddos back to school so you can get your house back.

It is, without a doubt, one of the biggest games of the year for the Thunderbolts. It’s great for the ‘Bolts because thousands of students (and potential new fans) get to see them play at the Ford Center – and the students love it because they get out of school for a couple of hours.
