Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

BigBird & Snuffy were no shows this morning but had an excused absence… something about a baby being born?  Congrats Grandpa Snuff & Uncle Bird! Feeling lost without BigBird, Seatdown, Drone, Pyro, Whiff, Jumanji, Septum and the “Fastholes”, Bing and I decided to journey to Stagecoach for some running & active recovery exercises.  We attacked […]
