"Grad School Field Day 2008"

Ahh yes, Field Day. The day where the overwhelming theme is, "Recess!" We all remember that day. Some would dread it, some would embrace it, some really didn't care. I was one who embraced the idea of competition on the not so grand scale. Whether it was the 50 yard dash, the water balloon toss, or even the Flip Cup. The bottom line is, "winners win."

Such was the case as I was invited to the 2nd? Annual Grad School Field Day, 2008. The competition was fierce, the beer was good and the prizes were Excellent! As you can see, I was the winner of the "Ghetto Sack Race" which was renamed, "Socio-Economically Challenged Sack Race" to be politically correct.

Great care should be taken to avoid dehydration. This basket on my cruiser bike holds 2 Growlers full of Octoberfest beer from Free State Brewery.

The turn-around point for all the events.

Water balloon toss. My team started well and were in the mix but narrowly missed a medal.

Patrick IS, kind of a big deal.

Dizzy Bat is indeed more fun with a couple of adult beverages.

The Three Legged Race shatters hopes and dreams, yet someone will always emerge victorious!
