    “Development Legend – David Perry”

    Brilliant stuff. Obligatory youtube video.

    I love how every promotional photo of Dave Perry avoids the top/back of his head.

    You’re going bald Dave, be a man and represent.

    …seriously, he’s been rocking the comb-over. Not cool, Dave. Not cool.

    Like has been mentioned many times before, clearly David Perry should be nominated for the best teeth award.
