Steve Ostrowski
July 2005
Steve sent me 3 versions of his bloodied leg to chose from.  Steve added, "My personal favorite of the 3 pictures is the one that captures the TRUE essence of hillbilly entertainment. That would be the one that shows not only my oozing wound, but also shows a can of cheap beer, the cheap cooler from which it came, AND a Big Diamond Raceway program. Can you say YEE HA? YEE HA!!!!!!!"
