Gameday Beatdown at Strut

15 faithful entered the Strut gloom this AM and YHC could immediately tell the Strutbrigade were in full football mode. Several pax donned Gamecock shirts. StageCoach, of course, had on his Shmedium. (That thing is getting smaller, by the way. His mom needs to dry on lower heat). There was even slight chill in the air, football weather. It’s GAMEDAY and the Strutbrigade came to work.


Conditions: 65 degrees, slight chill
