Old Bro News & Notes - 1/29/12

Kind of quiet in the Old Bro Network this month ..... I'm assuming most of you old Bruins must be hibernating for the winter, like this guy on the right ----->>>>

Only ONE new Old Bro to add to the roster this update, and we have a new leader in the clubhouse for "Highest Zeta#", please welcome Phil Tadlock (EpSig 1364).  Phil brings the total roster count for the Old Bro Network up to 281.  Also, we have updated e-mail addresses on THREE Old Bros (Chuck Gelbach, Bob Marshall, and Hank Hickey).  Revised E-cards have been sent out, please update your records accordingly.


Definitely NOT hibernating for the winter are new head football coach Jim Mora and his staff, who are busily recruiting some new studs for the Bruin football team.  Last time I checked, our recruiting class this year is ranked in a tie for 10th best in the country (per Scout.com), so Coach Mora is already making an impact.  Let's see what happens on National Signing Day, 2/1/12 ..... GO BRUINS !!!


And finally, we have the first entry for our "Still Crazy After All These Years" contest ..... that's Old Bro Leaping Lenny Poirier (EpSig 730) flying through the air with the greatest of ease (pretty nice form, as well) as he bungy jumps off a bridge in New Zealand last week.

Haven't heard all the details yet, but apparently this jump was a willing choice, and not the result of having to pay off a bet.

That's the Kawarau River that Leaping Lenny's swan dive is headed towards, not far from Queenstown, New Zealand, one of the prettiest places on the planet (and yes, he made it back alive and in one piece).

If any of you other Old Bros out there have a photo of yourself that you think might actually TOP this crazy stunt, send it in and I'll post it as well.

As always, if anyone has any contact info on any Old Bro who is currently NOT on the roster, send it in and I'll get them hooked up.  Likewise, if your contact info is somehow incorrect or if it changes, drop me a note and I'll fix that as well.

Cheers,
MJH

  1. You beat us to the punch. Don Tringali also did this same jump a couple of days later and he and I met up in Queenstown before he started 5 day hike to Milford sound. He has me beat because I just flew there. It is truly one of the most spectacular places on earth. We were going to send you pictures of both our jumps and also one of us in Queenstown.
