Brick Pics

THE SCENE:
Wheezer (yes that wheezer), Ryan Howard, and Cheezsteak were finishing up their pre-run as I was setting up cones in the Large field.

Wheezer mentioned that he and Rocket Launcher had a friendly AOQ bet with Burpee Payments. Whomever had the most PAX post and certain PAX (Hoya, Oneder, Cheezesteak) would increase the Burpee count.

A nice, warmer 46 degree morning that felt great! Perfect gloom for a monster beatdown.
