    That’s the second time some dumbass with a cobalt crashed the docks on the south shore. And he had to come all the way from South Dakota to do it. Thanks Eades, for breaking the 4 year no OWI streak.

      they are nice boats! although you may have hit something here. the correlation between rich drunk douchebags and large awesome cobalts is remarkably strong on that particular lake.
