Hello! In this episode of Hammering Down, I talked to Peter and Aaron from the Oakland Roots Blog. We talked to them about the Roots, their move from NISA to USL, and the squad construction. This is a team that looks so close, but always so far away from competing. Will the 3 Sparks take all three?
