I have the Body of a God

Unfortunately, the god in question is Buddha.

National Guardsman Brutally Attacked In Pierce County

[That's Washington.]

PARKLAND, Wash. -- The Pierce County Sheriff's Department is searching for five people who allegedly attacked a uniformed National Guardsmen walking along 138th Street in Parkland Tuesday afternoon.

The soldier was walking to a convenience store when a sport utility vehicle pulled up alongside him and the driver asked if he was in the military and if he had been in any action.

The driver then got out of the vehicle, displayed a gun and shouted insults at the victim. Four other suspects exited the vehicle and knocked the soldier down, punching and kicking him.

“And during the assault the suspects called him a baby killer. At that point they got into the car and drove off and left him on the side of the road,” Detective Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News.
I hope they find these scumbags and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.

Hot Dang!

Only three games out of first, and we've got Wells back. It's gonna be a fun September.

Boy, I screwed this one up. Kudos to Vic for guessing it nonetheless and to Ken for correcting me.
