Three Amigos - D.J. Richardson, Joe Bertrand, Brandon Paul - going out in style

First, the stuffed animals.

As a college freshman, D.J. Richardson piled them high on his bed in the dorm room he shared with Joseph Bertrand. When D.J. fell asleep, he fell asleep with fuzzy tigers and teddy bears. Only, he didn't always start the day that way.

"Every day Joe would wake up with at least seven teddy bears on his side of the dorm. And he'd say, 'Why are all your bears on my side of the room?' "

Across the table, Joe hides a grin and awaits the punchline.

"And I would tell Joe, all the teddy bears are on your side of the room because I threw them at you. You wouldn't turn off your alarm!"
