Back Blast – #TempleofGloom – Sick Bay

Well, my Q this morning reminded me of the scene out of Seinfeld where George’s dad accidentally poisons his men when he was a cook in the Army and they are all throwing up to the theme music from Platoon, but I digress.  I am always a little worried that my Q’s might be viewed as “easy”, so I wanted to come up with something challenging but fair. We had 3 FNG’s at the O this morning which was great! I gave the disclaimer about modifying and off we went.  Midway through Thang 2 is when things went a little sideways. I heard someone say there was someone puking in the bushes. I looked over and saw it was an FNG. I won’t mention his identity to protect his good F3 name but if you haven’t puked or almost puked at one of the workouts I would be surprised. We finished up COT and I fist bumped FNG Ming before I went to my car. I just met him this morning, so I don’t know him, but he looked ok. Then about two hours later I received a text while sitting in a meeting from Gepetto “Just saw Slack, WTF happened?”. What? Then from Gepetto again “Holy S@%t dude. What did you do to those poor bastards?”. Me? Then lastly from Meatball “I told you your Q was tough! One FNG puking and one at the ER. That has to be an F3 record”. ER?? Wait, what?? Holy S@%T!! My intent was not to make anyone sick or send them to the ER but I guess it does alleviate my worry about my Q’s being too easy. In all seriousness, I am glad to hear FNG Ming is doing better and hopefully the other FNG’s will return to see us very soon. Ok, let’s get to it:
