  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 2) : I don’t think there is such a thing as loose and tight lock. The left lock would bind between the loosehead and the hooker.

  • You should be happy I don’t support the Sharks, I do it out of affection for all the people I like here (and Klempie) because my teams always kinda suck. Here’s hoping the Hignlanders prove me wrong this year.
