Hey, the lady was mean. There was no reason for her to lash out at you and the coach the way she did. :[
But YES. It was a miracle that the appeal actually worked, especially since it was three hours later than the one-hour window that we're supposed to have. And at Nationals, no less. Monumental. xD
Actually, we still would have gotten in 3rd place overall even if you had been DQ'd.
It's great that you managed to stay calm afterwards, though. When I saw you at Elevated Bridge, you were even smiling at us.
