Affectionately known as Batman (Ibarra) and Superman (Ramirez) by their fans, the pair were presented as Loons to the public for the first time today at a United press conference.
“We’re back together and we’re ready to get back to work,” said Ibarra during the press conference.
When asked when the reunion became real for the pair, Ramirez said it wasn’t until he was told to go pick Ibarra up at the airport that the deal really sunk in.
