    The tag games refer to being "Bruced". Is he a real person? Is he the first guy to come to the game standing tall and proud beating his chest that he got the elusive tag only to find out he's a day late and a dollar short, missed it by that much, wished it was a game of horse shoes or hand grenades, never got the cigar, shuttering and cringing when his infamous name is now mentioned or was it just random?

    Yep, he was that guy.. A real person, I believe he plays the Ohio Tag game since it was the first of all the tag games (I think)

    He is a real person, but my understnding of it is that Bruce was the skunk-er rather than the skunk-ee. I may be wrong, though, so maybe one of the Ohio players -- maybe even Bruce himself -- will clarify.

    My knee is the size of a large cantelope right now. For no apparent reason.

    If i can ride, I'm heading down the BRP to Asheville in the next couple of weeks.

    Sorry for the highjack, guys.
