History

The Shoves used to be Dillinger, one of the most respected and popular Harold teams of the time. But when Anthony King and Joe Wengert left to join/form Reuben Williams the remaining members chose to start over with a new name, as well as two new members, Bobby Moynihan and Angeliki George (who had been on Police Chief Rumble).

Dillinger had left such a good run that there at least a perceived pressure for The Shoves to live up to it. After a brief transition period, they also became one of the top teams on Harold Night. They seemed a notch less silly than Dillinger but were far more innovative with giving their shows a theme and bending Harold to be a form that suited the suggestion. Part of this was from the influence of their long-time coach Peter Gwinn.
