The 47th Scottish Highland Games: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The 47th Scottish Highland Games took over Steele Indian School Park this weekend with all its bagpiped, hammer-thrown glory.

We checked out the annual event, thrown by the Caledonian Society of Arizona, and took a few fashionable notes. The Good's above, the Bad and the Ugly are after the jump and the whole bloody slideshow is right here.
