For two, Hawks fans might want to be considerably more circumspect about the whole vehicle-as-football team metaphor:*
*In case you’re skeptical this “isolated” crash is a worthy counterpart to the Ferndale shenanigans, keep in mind that one of the craft’s** two operators*** keeps its academy and space commend in Colorado Springs.
***The other is the Marines.
