Are you amused? I am. The photo, as you might be able to see, was autographed by the participants running vertically up the pant legs.
From left, we have Thomas Costigan, Jay Whitehead, Yasser Seirawan, Michael Rohde, Paul Whitehead, Steve Odendahl, the author, and the glowering John Fedorowicz. Yasser, Paul, and John wound up tying for first with “+2″. Steve and I followed with an equal score, tied for 4th.
