Yesterday, a couple of us from theRaleigh Extreme Blue site went to see the fireworks display atRegency Park in Cary, NC. We ate our picnic dinner while listening tothe North Carolina Symphony perform classic hits and patriotic tunes.After the concert, the fireworks went up and I snapped some pictures.
Sadly, we are currentlymourning the recent and tragic loss of a friend near and dear to usall. At approximately 3:03 PM EST, our right-midfielder on the middleyellow line of the foosball table, known to friends as "Old Yellow", expired today. His hair-linefracture developed into a full blown total-body dismemberment after apower kick. Many have cited defective plastic as the cause of death,but yours truly believes he simply lost the will to live. We don't like to point fingers around here, butMichael J Frederick KILLED HIM. Chris Broglie, a fellow member of Mr.Frederick's team GridIron, issued this statement:
In caseyou can't grasp the monstrosity of this situation, let me providesome helpful analogies:
If oldyellow was Abraham Lincoln, Michael would be John Wilkes Booth
If old yellow was John Kennedy, Michael would be Lee Harvey Oswald
And if Extreme Blue was America, Michael wouldbe Benedict Arnold
GridIron is shamed by hisassociation. We sincerely apologize.
We have notified theplayer's family and we are actively looking into an emergencyreplacement. We ask that you take a moment of silence to reflect onhis passing. Mr. Frederick has declined to respond to our questions.
