It’s official: Spaceland Force XP has the new world record for the fastest freaking turning around in the sky. Ever. Congratulations Gary Beyer, Christopher Ian Bobo (go Chris!), Eric Boyd, Thomas Hughes and Shannon Pilcher, for your 45-point 4-way at USPA Nationals last fall. This beats the previous record, held jointly by Commie pinkos. Go USA!
This feat is just one of the many that helped Thomas Hughes win several medals at Nationals. But, it was ultimately his lack of late-night drunken awareness that helped us liberate his medals and take them on a tour of the countryside. Today seems like a good day for a fond look back at the medals’ glorious road trip from Rosharon, TX to DeLand, FL. They met wonderful people: the gas station attendant in Orange, TX; the Whataburger girl; suspicious Baton Rouge baristas; eager valets in NOLA; crabs on Bourbon Street (hopefully only one kind); strippers and some sort of Russian dude; Mississipians; dogs; and finally, home.
