ZMan's Blog: By the Numbers

By Cleveland Charge Staff /April 25, 2023

Ever wonder what it would be like to travel with a professional sports team? Day after day, game after game? Sounds fun, and it certainly is but, it does have its challenges.

“Wait, what city are we in?” “What is my room number?” “What time does the bus leave for practice?” After a while, you slowly begin to lose track of things. But fear not! I kept track of everything for you in this edition of “all things travel by the numbers” for the 2022/2023 Charge season.

(And yes, I did the math for you…)

So, without further delay, I bring you THE CLEVELAND CHARGE SEASON RECAP BY THE NUMBERS! Drum roll please…
