We met in the back room after the gig, a half dozen indians, one really big one and the band with Bryce, our roady. Bryce and the indian locked arms and held each other for what seemed like half and hour. Then Bryce, said, "Are you ready? And then slammed the indian's arm to the table effortlessly. The indians were very good sports about it. But Bryce wanted to kill me for setting up the bet. He wasn't feeling good that night. Oh, I hear you floyd. You have to be very careful in those Oregon bars.
Um.... where's the 'GROAN' button???
