Save LAS – A Fun Idea

Freedom Penguin - Sun, 03/19/2017 - 18:28

In a response to the recent LAS episode and following Reddit thread, Bryan Lunduke and I did some brainstorming. He and I both have a lot of history with LAS and would really hate to see it disappear in its current form. So I presented and idea to Bryan, who then fine tuned it and this is what we came up with.

Mind you, this idea is literally just be a “Big Tent” concept to shake folks from their seats a bit, gaining some fun attention for the show.

Also consider the fact that folks in said Reddit thread have expressed a desire for a trip down memory lane. Do it or don’t, I’m just extending an olive branch.

(From the original Reddit post)

Since Bryan wasn’t able to post here, I’m re-sharing his words under my account. My only thing to add is this:

Ditto what that Lunduke guy said. No agenda…fact is, we too have a legacy stake in seeing you guys kicking ass and taking names.

Yo Chris and Noah! Bryan here.
