Skidmark realized that Boxcar would be challenged to Q as scheduled from across the big pond so he threw a plea out on Slack for a HIM to cover this Q. YHC jumped at the chance to lead the men of Bombsquad on a Monday Morning in the Gloom.

Preparation was a breeze for this beatdown thanks to Grunge. See under LBAC’s.

YHC asked if any PAX could name the Browns receiver that wore number 84 in the late 80’s (back when the Browns were actually good). Hamburglar knew without any hesitation… Webster Slaughter. What is the significance you ask? Last Friday, Grunge was downrange from F3Churham and introduced YHC to Slaughters. And since imitation is the greatest form of flattery, YHC chose to recreate Grunge’s Slaughterous Beatdown.
