Thanks Walleye! Gabe (next to me in the group shot) was in WFR 1 with us too. Can you believe it has been seven years? Hope all is well with you!

Actually I have to apologize, in my ignorance I had no idea that was the only rap anchor, we had to rap the same way you guys did, I should have thought a bit before getting vocal... I hope you guys made it to Cathedral!
