A couple of BN’ers – Ryan and Ben – recently got together for a little celebration, and, in true high-five-earning form, they donned their BN shirts:

Today is actually Ben’s birthday, and we’d all like to wish him a very happy one. Ben is currently battling ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), and so we’d also like to wish him all the best as he goes through that fight.

To a couple of hardcore Cubs fans: you guys rock. It’s great to have you as part of the community – you look mighty handsome in those shirts – and a big happy birthday to Ben.
