    Steve O had them on display at the Ballston pit stop this morning. It's cool, counting back the years with each color!

    Aha, was wondering after the fact if that was him / his shirts. I commented to him (he was manning the t-shirt table, of course) that I was rocking my 2007 BTWD shirt to celebrate 10 years of this stuff, and he casually waved a hand over the collected mass of history that is his BTWD shirt collection. All wrapped in plastic, of course. Guess I have more work to do in order to catch up.

REI was there, but no freebies. Nando's was giving away free bottles of Peri-Peri sauce 'cause obviously I can use that while bike commuting. At least it wasn't raining.
    It sounds like they just weren't quite ready yet when you got there. I rolled up just after 8, and by that point they had cold cans of the La Colombe draft lattes (in a bucket of ice), a tray of muffins/crossiants, REI handing out stickers and water bottles, Moe's handing out bags of chips and guac (for folks to take to work for lunch?), plus the Nando's freebies (in addition to the hot sauce, they had coupons for a free lunch, a little container of roasted nuts, and all of it was packed in a helmet cover). Definitely seemed a few notches lower than last year's festivities.

    I am quite certain I participated in at least 1-2 BTWDs in the 90's but I have no physical evidence. My oldest shirt is 2002.

    Sauce: duh, squirt that at chasing dogs.
    Rain: I like what rain does for my BTWD raffle odds.
