Bear Hug:
We keep running (sunning?) back to Big Bear to catch the rays AND the ray-beaters. There’s sport-wrap action aplenty but also some dramatic logo worshiping (we prefer it slightly quieter of late), aviator-as-ever and the gradual but powerful influx of the P3 prep look especially on the GenEYE representative. As for Santa: That elongated rec needs to retire come the holidays. Stick a “round” on him.
