New things

May 10, 2013 12:05 am

I upgraded the server this site uses today, and figured I should probably actually post on it…  So whats changed recently?  Well… I bought a boat!  I now own Frogger USA702, a TipTop MiniTransat designed by Sam Manuard.  (Site coming soon)

Hopefully Frogger will be racing a bit this summer, and doing the full Long Island Sound short-handed circuit next year.

This is probably the best goal I’ve seen since the Denis Savard goal…  (You know the one)

and of course…

” This team beats the thrashers”
