YHC reminded all to tell your family and loved ones that you love them, every day. We’ve all heard this advice, but it’s good to be reminded of because it’s easy to take for granted with those you see every day.

Naked Man Moleskin:

* Whether it was lack of clear direction from YHC or we have some very bad Heisman posers, this was a complete disaster … but it was rather comical, so there’s that.

** It is debatable whether some of these moseys were really any faster than the previous … maybe the first 10 ft … it’s the thought that counts.

*** Slow counts and random stories are encouraged.
