• Links are a little late this morning, mostly because the holiday spirit eventually came in liquid form last night, causing a Boxing Day tradition of Advil for breakfast to continue. The crowd shots from last night show that Advil likely had a very profitable day in Green Bay too. Liquid courage caused the five gentlemen above to dress for their bank robbery early, and there’s at least one cheating ex-boyfriend who’s still sleeping on the couch.
