Lance, our OG friend from the East Bay, was hit by a car a few weeks back. It took me forever to post this because I couldn’t find a picture. Lance has come to a bunch of the First Rule jams and has been riding since back in the day. All I know is that he is doing well, but has a broken femur. The car that hit him was running from the cops and ran a stop sign. Get well soon, Lance!

I’ll start off with the good news about Joey first: He won the School’s Out Jam last night. Now for the bad news: He’s been in the hospital in Fresno since last night, after breaking two vertebrae in his neck during the post-jam high jump contest. Thankfully, Danny Leahy and Kelly Costello are staying down there with him for the time being. Danny’s told me that Joey’s pretty out of it right now, and is strapped down until the doctors decide whether or not he needs surgery; also, he’s told me that Joey has been able to move his extremities, which is obviously a good sign. I’ll post updates as I get them, and you’ll be hearing about some sort of DawgAid-style event to help him out with his medical bills once he gets back home from Fresno. In the meantime, keep him in mind.
