YHC wanted to talk about sacrifice.  This weekend is about sacrifice.  We are able to enjoy a free workout in a public park because of the sacrifices of those before us.  Memorial Day represents the sacrifice that our military made for us in order to have the freedoms that we have.  Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice so we could live on this Earth.  Sacrifice occurs all around us.  I challenged the PAX to figure out how they could sacrifice for someone else this weekend.  


It was great to have Best in Show back in the fold

The 80s rock was strong and the speaker provided a nice coupon for the day

Apparently Ringwald’s lady wants him to get rubbed down by a dude later.  Poll was taken as to whether this was weird or not.  (YHC confirmed that getting a rub down by a dude is weird)
