Episode 120: We Apologize Ahead of Time

We may be the jesters -- or buffoons -- of the ASL world but we're not ignorant to modern social and political correctness, as evidenced in this episode where we can scarce make a comment without worrying about offending someone. But wait -- that worry assumes someone is even listening. Now we're worrying about our egos. Well, let's get on with the show and hope for the best.

We start with some chit-chat about Jeff's trip to the Air and Space Museum in Washington DC, and Dave's trip to Godzilla Fest in Chicago. But does any of this relate to Advanced Squad Leader? Yes! Everything relates to Advanced Squad Leader, no matter how tenuously. We then get to mail call, which covers such diverse topics as movie reviews, players wanted, map explanations, and more. Later, take a look back with us at ASL Annual 95 (Winter Edition). This annual was Gary Fortenberry's first stint as editor of that distinguished publication. Finally, the winners of the latest contest are announced -- and it could be you so listen carefully. The winner receives a sweet Sabaton CD kindly donated by Göran Andersson.

Shown here hailing a cab,
this shirt will stop
traffic every time.
Thanks to all who purchased our OBA decks. As of this writing we have just a few left, but fear not because we now have new t-shirts! These beauties include the likeness of our lovely faces. (Un-oh, there go our egos again. We apologize.) $20 will land this shirt in your mail box if you live in the continental USA. Farther locations will incur additional shipping charges.

Wearing this shirt is a guaranteed conversation-starter wherever you go. Like, "Why are you wearing a shirt with two ugly guys on it?" Or, "Would you mind putting on a coat? My wife and I are trying to eat." Or, "A bunch of us homeless guys got a little collection together and bought you a bus pass to anywhere but here!"

The back looks good too.
People will be happy
to see you leave!
To order a shirt email us at the2halfsquads at gmail dot com and we will send you the details.

For an extra $1 we'll sign your shirt. (Uh-oh. More ego!)

For an extra $5 we'll forge Perry's signature.

And since Dave is off all summer, for an extra $6 he'll deliver it to you personally, clip your counters, mow your lawn and walk your dog.

Order yours today!
