Posing as Red Cross aid workers, a crack team of military experts--three Israeli Mossad officers and Night Cabbie--pulled off a daring rescue of Musicfest NW's kidnapped letters this Sunday. Left in plain view at Farragut field, the letters were recovered during the Mercury vs. Willamette Week softball game. We won the game, naturally.
Thank the lord.
But before the letters undergo an intensive therapy session, and much needed steam cleaning, it seems as if they partied pretty hard over the weekend. Pictured below, a letter is wearing the rare original NBA draft jersey of Trail Blazers PF Raef LaFrentz (notice the misspelled last name).
And if you're curious to the question: Will a bulldog named Percy hump a large cardboard letter "F"? The answer is, sadly, no. Damn.
