Boom Boom’s Big Mistake

Landon saw an opportunity to entice his older brother, Frankie, into a game. That was Boom Boom’s Big Mistake.

Hey, Big Bro, let's play
Hey, Big Bro, let’s play

Landon is an eternal optimist. He is also forgetful. Together, that led him to challenge his older brother to a little wrestling match. After all, youth and agility should win, right?

Whoa, I didn't see that move coming
Whoa, I didn’t see that move coming

The problem for our Boom Boom is he forgets the years of experience Frankie Suave has in managing his little brothers. The tide turned quickly.

Aerial assault  - Who knew Frankie could sky like this?

With a few deft moves, Frankie soon had our youngster on the ropes and realizing his big mistake.

I surrender. I surrender.
I surrender. I surrender.
