    Could be some sort of competition between fire companies. That sort of thing used to occasionally come on tv on Saturdays. They would engage in different drills related to firefighting. I remember one team was called The Patchogue 40 Thieves. It may still come on but I don't watch much tv anymore.
    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.
