What a heartening story in the midst of world chaos and acrimony.
Ok, there's been a lot of over use of Lloyd Brady lately - but this was hilarious.
I swore I saw him at my son's school yesterday. So either Lloyd Brady is from Ann Arbor and was taking time out from his busy U-M schedule to drop his little brother off for a middle-school athletic event.... or his overappearance on this blog has imprinted him into my brain.
I suspect it's the latter.
Hahahahahaha I was totally not expecting this. Impressive! Made my morning.
remarkably well tanned for a guy that spent over two months underground.
Get off of reddit : )
Guilty as charged.
a couple of hours in the Saturday sunshine at the Big House oughta bring some color to his cheeks.
Pick em up!
Ummmmm you spelled Brandon's name wrong it's MINOR not miner
Was bracing myself for the Nth mawkish recounting of the rescue, and then THIS! Good thing I wasn't drinking milk at the time or I'd still be wiping my monitor down.
You sir have earned my vote for best LB Photoshop of the week.
Outstanding!!!!! That said, please see the below disclaimer:
This young man is a person! He has feelings! If he is cut, does he not bleed? If he is revered by an entire blog community, does his self-esteem not rise?
Excellent!! I woke up this morning in a shitty mood, now I've got a smile almost as wonderful and bright as Lloyd Brady's(minus the chipped front tooth)!
Amazing story though. These guys haven't seen sunlight in more than 60 days.
Two months underground and his hair still looks sensational!
Following the accident, the miners waited in a shelter (don't know what that entails) inside the mineshaft. There, they waited for about 2 weeks when a small tube was drilled so that the miners could be passed supplies, including some sort of gel with all the nutrients needed to sustain them and hydration pills (real water too?). The hole was also used for pumping oxygen into the mine as well as for exchanging notes between them and the outside world, including the original note saying that 33 miners were trapped but were okay. That note was something of a major symbol of their struggle to stay alive, as it was miraculous that all 33 were able to stay okay for so long before the mini hole reached them.
They had already drilled a smaller hole to get them supplies. Lloyd sure is happy he didn't miss the Iowa game but man, he sure looks desperate to pee !!!!
I guess we can joke now that they're all safe and okay, so I heard this funny joke on the radio:
They hadn't seen so many "miners" escape since they unlocked Michael Jackson's basement!
The best part is, that is exactly the sort of face you would make if you were just rescued from a collapsed mine after 69 days. The Lloyd Brady face.
