This is the price of fame. As we all know, the Colts are making people sit up and take notice. So we're getting noticed more here at the cooktruck. Some kinds of notice are good. Some not so good.
Anyway, that's why from now on comments on the Virtual Cooktruck will be moderated. One of the people who help with the Virtual Cooktruck will have to say it's OK to post before your comment will show up. That's why your comments may not show up right away. This will also head off spam comments, which we have not been hit with yet but that we know would show up eventually.
To make it easier for us, please sign your name (corps name or first name only and section -- i.e. Brass, Guard, Pit, Bassline, Snare, Sop, Cook, Driver, Harmless Drudge, Contra, etc.) to make it easier for your humble moderators. And if you'd like to enjoy the power and fame that comes with being part of the Virtual Cooktruck staff, drop me a note.

Scott (Scooter) emailed me these pictures he took of David at the February camp. Here's what he had to say:
"Mr. Speer has been catching pictures of me for a year now and I haven't seen him do it once. When I arrived at February camp my mission was to get a picture of him getting a picture, so I stalked him all weekend.
I finally got this picture of him ironically just before he got a picture of me. (My picture was taken seconds before the picture labeled "Here We Go" on February 16th.}
PS. Sorry the picture is so blurry; Mr Speer is an elusive prey!"
Thanks for sharing, Scott!
