I just wanted to let everyone know how Sunbird, PopPop and Big Bird saved my rear end this tournament weekend. As you all know, Pam (Ricky's wife) was intending on selling bait at the boat ramp for the tournament. Well, she hit a big snag at the last minute and wasn't able to deliver. We knew people had made plans based on believing bait was gonna be there, so she called me for help, and I just couldn't leave everyone hanging. Unfortunately for them, Sunbird, PopPop and Big Bird happened to be at the lake, planning on a weekend of fishing. But I couldn't do it by myself. So, instead of spending their Friday night pre-fishing as planned, they spent it helping me catch up a tank full of bait. Then, just to make things even more interesting, the battery died and the pumps quit on the bait tank in the middle of the night. And all but one lone shad died. So, Saturday, Sunbird and Pop- er, make that CAPTAIN Pop Pop spent ALL DAY helping me catch bait. And it was a heck of a sight harder to do during the daytime. Then, Pam sold out of bait, so the first part of the tournament for me was spent...catching bait. For my partner and I to fish with. Who I would like to apologize to, by the way. Hate that I did you that way, Bill. But I didn't feel like I had a choice. All of these guys helped me out at a big sacrifice to themselves. Now THAT's BIG STUFF!!! True friends.
