Puddin Pop prayed us out, helping us all to be thankful for the Ultimate Sacrifice many of us celebrate this week.

The Chattah:

With Flutie Flakes visiting from NH, there was a lot to catch up on, including the proper spelling of annals.  Even though there was disbelief that ESPN had a 2 hour special on NFL schedule release, there was quite a bit of chatter about which games would be attended, consensus:  The Big Easy fo sho.  Lots of Bama Swagger about Triple Crowns, Heisman/Nattie etc so we will have to see how that works out.  Also, YHC learned quite a but more than I’d hoped to about ping pong and Thailand – had ta be there.  Truly enjoyable group everyone, thanks for the opportunity.

BOG – “The Chattah” was written with as much grace as one of your triple axles. Very nice summary of the highlights, without outing the PAX that uttered the words. I will use this in future backblasts of my own. Well done man.

And Gummy, your selfless actions continue to amaze us. For you to take the time to post a Backblast of a workout for which you did not attend, is a true act of kindness. Bless you.
