On August 31st 2019, the Buckos Nation was suddenly and viciously attacked by a terrorist cell of meat bees. Cold, brutal revenge was exacted. This is that story.
A Prelude to Carnage:
Arriving early Friday Afternoon, Hammer and Decibelle, along with Coach, The Pants, and The Shorts established the operations bunker for the weekend’s coming exercise. All was quiet, and the potential field was surveyed from both aerial vantage point and boots on ground reconnaissance. All patrols reported the area clear of dangers. Command strategy sessions were held deep into the night as reinforcements were en route. L337 H4x and Elsinore bolstered defenses until Reverend and Student arrived. At the crack of 0900 hours the next morning, Coach, Hammer, and Reverend began the construction of the forward operating field. Construction went smoothly until 1000 hours when the others assembled at the field.

Other times this process is almost instantaneous where an inspiration leaps from the mind in near final form just waiting to be realized. Such is the case with Tapey Beercone’s first Fantasy Sports League.
It was during last season’s final Ranch weekend when the magic happened. With the Buckos relaxing around the cabin, the topic of conversation was a Buckos’ favorite: sports. Specifically discussion drifted from talk of Tapey Beercone to talk of the various Buckos fantasy baseball teams. Eventually Chris, who is not amused by these topics, had had enough!
