  1. Great pics as always, Earl. Heard there was a Shavar Thomas doppelganger (possible trialist?) doing the pregame warmups with Le Toux, Califf, Carroll, and the rest of the regulars who were being rested against the Toffees. Any pics of him, so we can set the speculation wheels in motion?

      I will have to look into my stuff and see if I have anything. I don’t recall seeing anyone that fit that bill.

  2. Excellent pics, Earl!!!!!!
