Re: pic: Lavery's Summer Vacation

After the game hint came out, I was inspired to do more research and to hear what others had to say. This picture only reinforces my Theory, which I shall summarize and ask for critiques on:

After the Delphi pack mirrored the game hint image and reverse-image searched it, the person in question came about. I think it would be a fair assumption that the person in the image is Eva Boyd (AKA Little EVA). She was a singer, and a fairly good one at that! One of her hit songs turned out to be "The Loco-Motion".

This conspicuous and apparently non-related picture includes a Mr. Dave Lavery. We all know that Dave, being the conspirator he is, has a hand in much of this mischief. Odds are (In my probably incorrect opinion) that these two instances of trains and or Loco-Motion leads us down a path, or shall I say a rail-road, which will in turn bring us to kickoff

Re: pic: Lavery's Summer Vacation

Was this recently taken? When Dave knew the game? If yes we will be seeing a train game if no, Jan. 8th can't come sooner.

Yay, another red herring for them to mess with us, or is this supposed to be another hint that they won't admit to? Either way, I am going to be over-analyzing this just as I did with the last picture. Now I have something to do on the 8 hours of driving I have left today.

I'm thinking this is just Mr. JVN having a bit of fun with the people desperate for something to interpret.
