Your series, " This day in Vipers History " , certainly brings back the great memories from the halcyon RBC-Cup-winning days ! Unfortunately it also reminds fans of the depths to which this once-proud franchise has sunk under the lack of leadership from the current owners and team officials . Although it saddens me , I encourage you to continue with your excellent posts .
