Why Did Blinded By the White Win for a third time?

What is it about a dynasty? Three wins, three World Champions of Cape Ann Dodge Ball. How does Ed Collard’s team do it? Here is the evidence. Ed or some hidden mascot of their team drives them to make the dives, make the saves, lose some skin, to win that trophy.

I am no geologist but you could look at this thigh and see the the “dikes” in the granite crisscross. That means that thigh hit the dirt more than once. That second and third hit has got to hurt. I won’t post the photo that includes the torso because it gets weird fast but suffice to say this dodge baller sacrificed some epidermal layers for the win.

Oh maybe after all the kids have gone to bed I'll post the rest of the photos holy cow!
