Member: Tony Driver (3DubYa)
Award: Identity Crisis / Trainer Huck Award
For: Having more fun with a trainer than he should
Fame or shame: Fame
Details: Folks, meet our long time friend Tony D who hails from someplace called Stralya. Tony is a master tail basher from way back, and recently sent in this video of him trying wringing out a trainer in a way that few have ever seen. Tony's herd consists of 40% big birds, profiles, assorted foam, and an extensive collection of Dire Straits albums - but the trainer holds a special place in his heart. Big props to Tony's campaign staff and cronies for making this award possible. Definite HOF material.
Member: Wayne Geffon (wgeffon)
Award: The Seinfeld Award
For: Longest thread in history about absolutely nothing.
Fame or shame: Undecided
Details: Wayne is a prolific community member, and self proclaimed master of hype. Wayne made a bet with Biff that he could take any thread topic to 15 pages, no problem. The cooking a hamburger thread was born. In less than 12 hours there were close to 200 replies -- About absolutely nothing. Biff lost, and we now have the HOF page with Wayne as our inaugural inductee.

Good Times!

Killer personalities, great times, and a week to remember!

Biffcasts (pod casts) are a good way of letting industry note-ables say what's on their mind. No telling what's going to happen here. Nothing is edited, no pretty stuff, we just run with it. You can turn one on and still navigate the site so listen as you go. A conversation between friends can get lengthy so make sure you have a comfy chair,get a beverage and enjoy!
