Baker set a new time record, breaking the previous mark held by Martin “Below Zero” Buser! Along with the leader board I will be presenting the Official Balladeer’s Blog Nickname of each competitor. As regular readers of my blog know, those prized nicknames are one of the perks of being covered here:
