A Night Out of Town
Okay, we promise, this is the last story about Parks and Shane Bonifay for at least a week. It’s just that they were gone for so long it’s good to have them back. So last night the Alliance boys went out to Clermont, to Parks and Shane's place to play a friendly game of poker (it was a church fundraiser, of course.) I didn’t play, but I hung out, shot the shit and shot some photos. This is something I would like to add – Matt Staker and I were talking about this – those dudes have a good posse. They hang out and get along and there's no drama. Here are all of the people I can think of off the top of my head that were there: Shane, Parks, Pete Bonifay, Shawn Watson, Rusty Malinoski, Chad Sharpe, the Ruck brothers (Erik and Mark), Josh McWilliams, Staker, Chase Heavener, me, Danny Harf, Ben Greenwood, Trevor Hansen, Brian Grubb, Tony and John Fox, of Fox Racing. It was a good time, but this story would have been a lot better if Chase hadn't done so well and I could have made fun of him for being bad at poker. But he finished fourth and Danny Harf beat Shane heads up to win the game. It was good seeing everyone and I got a chance meet Danny’s dog, Buddy – a perfect name for a gentleman’s dog.
