Pork Roll and Sir Wallace were getting after it, and really pushing themselves.  Strong work!

There was a plan that involved the Ruckers, but they left the AO.  Will put that one back in my pocket.  Next time.

Strong 1980s metal playlist, including Diamond Dave, Van Halen, Scorpions, among others.

Many of the Pax have never seen Fletch.  Come on!  Put it on the Underhill account.

Likewise, none of the Pax remember the David Lee Roth epic video that involves a convenience store, a glazed doughnut and a bottle of anything….TO GO!
