Funny Poop
The other day I saw an amazing football game:
1) The player's hair fit under their helmets.
2) No tattoos could be seen.
3) There were no outlandish end zone celebrations.
4) There was no taunting.
5) Opposition players helped each other up after a play.
6) Footballs were not spiked or left for the referee to retrieve; they were handed to the referee.
7) No one took a knee on the sidelines.
9) Players stood at attention during the playing of the national anthem.
10) It's great to watch an Army - Navy football game.

This was the 25th annual AGH Penguin Swim and the 11th year in a row that our Roost participated in the event.  In addition to the regular crew, we had a few new members join us this year which made it even more fun!  It was also the largest amount we have raised to date, winning us first place in the "Community Organization" category.  

In addition to receiving a trophy, the Team won a large can of Fisher's popcorn and some of Doll's famous candy which will be available for members to sample during our January meeting.
A special thanks goes out to the local businesses that supported our efforts.  They are listed on the attached Thank You ad that will run in this week’s Bayside Gazette.  Please be sure to support them throughout the year!



Thank you for your support!  Sincerely, Rob Carpenter, John Worthington, Tom Maly, Bill Cordwell, Dennis Faber, Joanne Faber, Cindi Brought, Lew Furman, Maggie Miller, Gary Miller, Carol Munroe, Nancy Delesio, Bob Dalesio, Mike Eder, Kim Eder & member emeritus, Paul Neal.

Funny Poop
·         A man was driving down the road.  He passed a traffic camera and saw it flash.  Astounded that he had been caught speeding when he was under the speed limit, he turned around and, going even slower, he passed by the camera.  Again, he saw it flash.  He couldn't believe it!  So he turned and, going at snail's pace, he passed the camera.  AGAIN, he saw the camera flash.  He guessed it must have a fault, and home he went.

Four weeks later he received 3 traffic fines in the mail, all for not wearing a seatbelt.

·         Tonight – A special PLAYOFF EDITION of RAVENS RAP, 6pm, at the Original Greene Turtle.  Yes, the SZLAS WILL BE THERE!  Says Steve: I’m getting tired of seeing all these predictions from people who don’t know the Ravens.  The Ravens are focused, healthy, tough to stop on offense, the number one defense in the league & tough at home!  This is just another hurdle Lamar must face.  First, it was,“You can’t run in this league” then, “He can’t win on the Road!” Now it’s, “Lamar can’t win against a team that’s seen him before!”  He has jumped each hurdle as it’s been presented & I see no reason to think he won’t jump this!  Bottom Line, Raven’s 31-Chargers 27!  See You tonight, Raven’s Steve.

Funny Poop
·         One Monday morning a postman is walking the neighborhood on his usual route. As he approaches one of the homes, he noticed that both cars were in the driveway.  His wonder was cut short by Bob, the homeowner, coming out with a load of empty beer and liquor bottles.
"Wow Bob, looks like you guys had one hell of a party last night," the postman comments.
Bob in obvious pain replies, "Actually we had it Saturday night.  This is the first I have felt like moving since 4:00 am Sunday morning.  We had about fifteen couples from around the neighborhood over for Christmas Cheer and it got a bit wild.  We got so drunk around midnight that we started playing 'Who Am I.'
The postman thinks a moment and says, "How do you play that?"
“Well, all the guys go in the bedroom and we come out one at a time with a sheet covering us and only our "privates" showing through a hole in the sheet.  Then the women try to guess who it is."
The mailman laughs and says, "Damn, I'm sorry I missed that."
"Probably a good thing you did," Bob responds. "Your name came up four or five times."
