A typical wonderful  gathering of the OGRES.  Again the Duke comes through with an opportunity to be enjoyed.  He bought an auction item being  the pent-house suite at the Century Link Arena.  It came complete with food and drink, personal services and even a few lovely ladies (spouses).
One the way there...rumblings of:  Where?...Isn’t that Taco Bell Arena...Where do we get the tickets?...Where’s the best place to park?...Who is this guy and where do we see him to get the tickets.  Your name sir?  Mayes Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Me Mayes...We have no tickets for a Mayes….Retort! Nicolayson#$*!  Oh...Mr. Nicolayson...Well Mr. Mayes here are your tickets to Suite 107.  I look at my wife to confirm that I am a big guy ‘cause I know the Duke.  There inside waiting just like a father figure was the Duke.  One by one OGRES rolled in:  some came stag...others came with their Ogrette (soon to get nicknames). Where’s our leader?

He’s on his way!  G-Man and Cherri;  Smooth and Pat, Bomber flew in solo, Big Easy and Kay, Krome and Sonja,  Rip and Stephanie  made up an OGRES quorum.  Where’s Grim?  He’s flying in from Salt Lake, he’s coming.  Meanwhile: meat balls, hot wings , veggies, beverages galore.  Hey has the game started?

What game?  Mmmmmmm    “Rip hand me those binoculars”.  I think he is looking at the cheerleaders!  He is looking at the cheerleaders.   Hey hand those back I want to see the game.  Yeah sure both teams are taking a time out.  No I am just looking for people I know.   Down on the court?

Hey where in the heck is Grim??????    Duke finally comes clean.  Guys the man is delayed en route and will not make it!  OGRES groan together Rip says, "Hey pass the meatballs!"  Smooth is piling up the quadruple chocolate on chocolate, chocolate dessert masterpiece.    Big Easy is in a fog…what game?  Krome and Sonja (hard core basketball fans ) watch the whole 3 hours of basketball, while inviting Rip & Co. to dinner as Big Easy talks with the ladies and wolfs down the leftovers.   G-Man planned rides and made excuses for riding on bald tires.  Bomber missed his squeeze but mostly polished off the beverages  and drowned his sorrows for not being the president’s perfect OGRES pet.  CAUSE HE MISSED THE LAST MEETING!  I say Bomber it feels good doesn’t to be a little radical!  He agrees and says,  “ Next ride I am going to ride my SUZUKI!   I’ll show Mr. Grim just how bad I can be.  Of Course RIP Yamaha loves company. 

Ladies start to flock together .  Who knows what they are talking about.  But it is serious cause not even Big Easy can get their attention.  That’s big cause Big Easy can tell a story to an auctioneer while he is working!  Duke’s squeeze stayed home cause she wanted some time alone not to talk Boy Scouts.  Duke said she was packing to leave the next day.  OGRES ask?  R U goen widr.

Buzzer!!!!!!!!!!  Fire Alarm?  No you idiot the game is over!  Game……………………….? Oh yeah they’re sure not very good.  I think the cheer leaders could beat those guys.   Smooth by now has all the chocolate desserts piled high to snarf up and take home.  Is the only food this guy gets at OGRES events or is it cause Hostess is going out of business and he is low on his meds?

Wow!  Duke thanks.  When’s  the next Taco Bell event?  Oh hey let’s save that meatball for Grim!
