Got a photograph, picture of | by Jay

Below, Mike Steedle comments on the Davie picture we used for the previous post ("I was looking for one in which he looked like he was doing something stupid.")

The funny thing is, if you do a google picture search on 'bob davie', more than half the resulting photos seem to fit that bill. I don't know what it is about the Bullet, but the camera always seemed to catch him at his worst: mouth agape and gesticulating wildly, lips pursed and with a furrowed brow, or otherwise wound up in a fit of agitation and looking pretty silly.

Jean-Luc Godard once said that "photography is truth", and he might be right. Take a gander.

In any case, sorry for all the Davie detritus lately. We'll get back to you with some more good stuff after the weekend's over (and hopefully after a much-needed road win against Providence tomorrow).
