First, Do No Harm

Mod note: It is with great sadness that I’m posting the following story. For those of us who know richie79 from Big Fat Blog, this will be devastating news. I’m so sorry for your loss, Richie.

And urge my teammates to send their entries, too! I was praying hard that one of us would win so we can all watch this much-awaited event. So imagine my delight when I found out that three of us won! That’s 15 tickets all in all!
