If there’s one thing YHC has learned over his years with F3 is that success takes an individual effort. And when one accomplishes something however menial, it should be celebrated and self-focused. The PAX gathered on this day not to become better but to marvel at YHCs accomplishment in hopes of gleaning just a smidge of greatness. To truly celebrate this momentous occasion, YHC has put together a timeline of all the times he has inspired the PAX, achieved unconscionable feats of athleticism, and elevated the PAX to heights unimaginable.

Alright, alright, alright, maybe this timeline isn’t exactly true and my facts may be a little skewed, but I’ll tell you what is true, and that’s the greatness of this brotherhood. So many memories have been made, however questionable they may be. I’ve been inspired and challenged and made a little better each day. Looking forward to 5 more. As for this revised history, Upchuck put me up to it.
