Week 4 Recap

Monday night I had a dream that I was drinking in a Mike Tyson’s Punch Out themed bar that played “Go Your Own Way” on the jukebox while I and other patrons battled Mike in the arcade. The name of the bar was Little Fleetwood Mac. I woke up thinking that was pretty awesome, but then I remembered something much more awesome . . . it was bocce day. The bocce did not let me down!

We’ve got a lot of great highlights so lets get right to the games.
