    Likely how the bathroom at Bladensburg got reopened tonight (mysterious reopening of tunnel) - someone broke the lock holder off and I found a homeless guy locked in there. He felt bad, I felt bad, and I got out of there as soon as I verified no new Calvin Balls hidden and warmed up a bit. I can’t imagine being out on the street tonight. How’d he even get there?

    Now that I know sszibler hid it specifically for me, I may have to check. But I'm still not optimistic.
    Carol tried really hard to find it tonight - we’ve been texting back and forth and either Steve M. got it or some lowlife stole a bunch of handmade friendship bracelets

    I propose 2 points for Carol for going above and beyond her normal routine. She was glad to get some extra miles for her team.

    I definitely looked! I even had a couple of people come by and try to help. Of course, I told them I was looking for a water bottle, not a Calvinball.

    My only hope is that it was another Freezing Saddles participant, not a thief, who found it before me.

    I left it with Graham who was somewhat amused by our little game.

    Visit the store and ask whoever is at the counter for the Calvinball. Make sure you look in the wallet before you leave because my proposed ordinance.... 5 points to whoever consumes the swag onsite and 10 points if it's consumed with a nosh upstairs.
    Mmmmm. Coffee stout.

    Sszibler- I have been enjoying your crazy Calvinball antics, Siber-Hobbes side plots, obscure clues, and off the wall hiding places so much. Sir, if a person could embody a Calvinball, it would be you!

    So as you can see, I made a late-night decision to nab the Falls Church Calvinball before Dominion Wine and Beer closed.

    Sam the bartender served me the Ocelot Purple Black Eye, which was the coffee-iest coffee stout I have ever had.

    I could not earn the 10 bonus points, though, because I was so late the kitchen had closed. Then, to add insult to injury, the "gift" card enclosed failed to work. So I had to go down to my bike and root through the saddle cushions to find enough loose change to pay for my beer. Thanks a lot, reji.

    I'm the WORST! I owe you a beer, Steve, and I'm gonna give Graham a stern talkin' to since there was supposed to be $10 on the card.

    I was really hoping something on here would give me a purpose to go out. The news people keep telling me I’ll die instantly if I try! But there doesn’t seem to be any hidden Calvin Balls. Am I wrong?
