This year saw the
"Great Balls of China Challenge 2008"

Everyone in the detail department had their go at the balls!  We did not know just how much time would be spent on these spheres of art! 

The orbs gave cause to many statements of )(*&^% and (*&^%%!  After all, who can forget the great hole punch tool (did you ever find your screwdriver Alan?) so that the mums would stand vertical!  Alan and Rick can!  Those were the most vertical mums in the parade! 

The total detail hours on these alone were in the 100's!  Rumblings around detail central were that Alan and Rick were laying down on the job...for hours!  We know that Rick was there as he was signing!  (Hazard of Oasis Glue!)

Of course you would know that one of the balls, did not make it down the parade route this year.  READ BELOW

 

 
 


M
ost of the floats reached parade line without incident, except.................the red brick mum ball for China Air. (Yes Rick, the one you were so fed up with...I think you must like red brick mums as much as you like orange slices. lol.)

Anyways...Craig and Leslie went on convoy just incase there was any problem with the protesters and the Olympics float. They were on Huntington Drive and had come to a stop (they were in Craigs truck and Leslie was sleeping) when Craig noticed a huge brick red ball rolling past the truck. He went on to wake Leslie and tell her about the ball. Craig pulled over and chased the ball down Huntington Blvd. Said ball was apprehended and put in the back of the truck for later questioning. Said ball was later taken back to the barn for interrogation and not seen or heard from again. Yes, you have it right, the red brick ball did not make it down parade line.
