Yes, but he gave them his name as Obadiah Terry so that's what I am going with.

Well, that was disappointing. We had a bad technical glitch mid-way through the townhall and were forced to end early.

I don't think anything was "hacked" but it was sad that they couldn't get it straightened out. Fair Test had a professional company doing the technical stuff so I don't know why they couldn't straighten it out.

Goat, very funny.
