Bitches be scandalous at Gasparilla

posted by sean roberts - 

Yeah, it was a bit chilly at this year's Gasparilla Parade, but that didn't stop hundreds of thousands of pirates and wenches from congregating on Bayshore for a huge party. I rolled up to the parade staging area at about 10am. I drove the 98ROCK Mother Trucker, which hauled our sketchy-at-best float, the S.S. POS.  

Shortly after getting parked, the rest of 98ROCK arrived: Ty brought pizza. Deuce wore his now customary kilt. Big Rig immediately began to assemble the sound system. Ben handled pretty much everything else. The well orchestrated chaos was a thing of true beauty.

The parade started at 2, but the line was so long that the rear of the procession didn't move until thirty to forty five minutes later. 

Once underway, everyone on the float (including our friends from Derby Lane) began to throw beads and occasionally get hit in the head with the same. It's a strange situation, but still a blast!

After almost three hours, we were done. 

I made sure to drop off all of the float passengers before heading out. I mean, riding on the S.S. POS at 55 mph would almost certainly mean a brutal and terrifying death. 

All in all, most of us survived the ordeal. Those who didn't will be remembered as true heroes. Their sacrifices enable us to be back next year...with more beer, more beads and more....em...beer.
