You say tomato, I say tomato -- either way, it hurts like hell when you're hit by a green one. And it smells worse when you're hit by a rotten one, as Natalie Gonzales learned when she joined in the Colorado Tomato Battle this past weekend.
The event brought back memories -- not all of them olfactory.
Having attended the Twin Lakes affair of yore, I truly enjoyed the coverage of this "controlled" mayhem. Suggestion: teams are good, a fort to siege is better!!!
