    The roller coaster had to have slowed down to a crawl with that much beef riding on it.

    I don't know why that tree sticks out to me, but it was the first thing I thought of when you mentioned the log ride.

    Ow. My eyes are blinded by the white. I'll never complain about the Nike jersey again.

    And which one gets to be the coverboy on the charity beefcake calendar?

    I want to say it was the Lumberjack, but it could have been the Splinter. Too many wasted braincells since then to remember correctly.

    Man, those boys need to get out in the sun more? How long did it take Elitches to re-water the ride when they were finished?

    Yea I also like how it was nestled into an urban neighborhood, kind of like the old ballparks. I hate to see stuff like that go away. :sad1:

    At least they kept some original structures around like the carousel and the theater, although last I heard the theater was just sitting there decaying and not being restored. It's too bad that places like Ebbets Field or Shibe Park have not even a trace of them left standing. I love what they did in Pittsburgh with keeping a portion of the original outfield wall and flagpole in place.

    So who's who?

    Miller and ...? in the front
    Bahr and Givens behind them
    Can't tell who are in the next two rows but think that's Adtkins in front of the little kid and then Cody and Mohler in the back with a kid..

    i also agree with the poster above there seems to be a bit of a shirtless "beefcake" angle to this year's fall camp photos. :huh:

    Miller is yoked. If he gets any bigger his head is going to look like Beetlejuice.
