How does it feel to play in front of great fans, and what can that mean for a game?: Playing in front of a loud fan base makes me forget about how tired I might be or how much pain I'm in. They make me want to dig a little deeper and play harder so that they have a reason to celebrate after the game. Nothing is better than making a big play to get the fans out of their seats.
