Digger#44 6/27/03

special thanks to Kameron Hampton, who provided most of the pictures from the Digger.  (and to Pat X and other who took pictures at Durkin's)


Da Pre-Digger at Da Durkin's Thursday 6/26/03.    

We start our tale with the obligatory Frankie and Johnny shot.  Two things askew - Frankie's on the right and there appears to be a Steve-o surgically attached to Johnny. Big Ron (middle) wins the award for traveling the longest distance - from AZ.
In second place is Jeff Gear.  Jeff came all the way from Idaho, just to get a little "X"!   Jeff flew all the way from Idaho. . and boy are his arms tired!  He couldn't even stay awake for this shot.
Girrrrl Power! Da Boyz rule!

Oooh, I've got a secret!

Darcy and John's secret is that they were conspiring on how to make it to the finals the next day. 

(it worked)

Hey, look, 
I've got a tongue!
Yeah, but I've got man boobs!
Salsa, Tango, I know 'em all. Gaye's legs are smooth, she must have shaved tonight.
"Whooooaaaa, half . . .way . .the-ere,

Whoooooaaaa, livin' on a prayer!

Take my hand and we'll make it I swear. . "

"Cum on feel the Noiz

Girlz rock the Boyz!"

"You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime YO!"

I'm a lucky dog, I'm a lucky dog.  

A lucky "Big dog" that is.

Frankie is just checking to see if "it" is still there Yeah, he's still got it.
Party on Garth!

Party on Wayne!

Wait!  Why is everybody two feet taller than me?

Brent just swallowed a bag of sweet tarts.
Oh, you two are just the cutest couple.  Kent and I could just kiss you! Aaaarrrgh!  I yam what I yam and that's all that I yam, I'm Popeye the Sailor man!
That's right, check it out.  I'm a good inch and half taller than he is. Kam Kam the Camera man.  Seen here doing his balancing act.
And then there was booze!

And is was good.

Tommy P corrupting the youth of America.

Everyone loves a little Girl-on-Girl action

I'm a pepper, you're a pepper, he's a pepper, she's a pepper . .
Wouldn't you like to do a Dr. Pepper shot too!
Sure Tim, I'll do a shot with you.  This is only water, right? This is what happens after doing a shot with Tim.
Whoa, I'm having my acid flashback The Digger Champion Shirt (modeled here by Dan Anderson).

This is what the crowd would be vying for the next day.

The SOB's were out in full force at the Pre-Digger

(In case you were wondering: "South Of the Boathouse") 

Just click on this picture to see the blow-up and you'll know why I've included it.

We had a huge turnout for the 1 am picture.  There's more people, we just couldn't fit them all in the shot!  Gold Stars for everybody!


So the stage was set.  

Digger Day #42 June 27th, 2003

We had a record turnout.  Over 100 to start the day and over 120 throughout!
To start things off, we had the Raising of the Digger Flag And then, the mystery that is the Digger Pairings.
For the first round, last August's champions don the 
Yellow Leader Jersey's.
From there on out, it's "follow the leader".
Dude, this tourney is soooo gnarly!

I'm toe-ta-lee stoked!

Digger #44's mascot - Kelsey Crane.
A couple of action shots to whet your palette (there's about 200 more where that came from)
Waaaaasssssuuuuuppp! Dude - I'm ripped!
This beats daycare! But mommy, I don't wanna be a Digger!  There's too much sand that gets in my shorts!
Some Classic Poses
Doh! I think I tore something. Yes, I know, Brent loves my ass.
Chicks Dig This Shit!

(click on this one, it gets even funnier)

Da Coach
Red Rover, Red Rover, let CAROL come over! Oh, Winston, your so cute.  Hey, you kiss better than Brent (and you photograph better, too).
Things started to get heated
GIVE ME that LEADER JERSEY! NOW Thank You.  That wasn't so hard, now was it?


What would a digger be without some wrastlin'! 


I feel pretty. . . . . oh so pretty!
Dude - give me the sign. Not that sign!
I just want men to love me for my mind, 
not for . . ahhh. . . my cups.  

Is that so hard?

I just want men to love me for my mind, not just for my pretty face.
For most of the day I had my child size megaphone.  Tommy P brought out the big dog. "Honey, some folks think the power's going to your head, so I took the batteries out of the megaphone.  You'll get them back if you're a good boy."
And after 6 rounds of regular season and 3 rounds of playoffs, we had our finalists.
For the second straight digger, Todd Badstubner found himself in the Digger finals. And his partner was Chris Tardy, Digger Virgin.

Went up against two more digger virgins, John Courtney

and Darcy Juarez

And so people hunkered-down to watch the finals.

And we saw some serious action at the net.

It was a hard fought match, with a lot of enthusiasm coming from the sidelines.  But in the end there can only be one pair of Digger champions.
Darcy and John!

Congratulations to our first ever double-digger-virgin champions!
