Sorry, no, sadly this is not an update on Bard's jaw-dropping summer scoop concerning Brad Rochelle's long anticipated return to BG East.

Earlier this week I woke up with Brad on the brain, somehow, and a baton propping up my Pendleton wool blanket. I take that as a sign that it's time for some photos of the guy. Eight classics for our mutual delectation. Here goes.
