Backblast BO at the O with Porkchop-11/19/18.


Things got real today at the O.  We got in touch with our sensitive side and I am pretty sure I saw a few tears.

9 PAX strong:  Mad Cow, PED, Fridge, Plumb Bob, Pepperoni, Glen Ross, Trump, Fergie, Porkchop (Q)

About 40 degrees this morning and the rain held off.  Started with disclaimers and launched into a quick Mosey.  High knees and Butt kicks for fun.  Circled up for 24 SSH, 15 Abe Vigodas, Kendra Newmans and Downward dog.  Collected coupons and headed to the tennis courts.


4 Corners:  Split into 4 groups.  Each corner had designated exercise.  Station 1: 30 Coupon Curls, 20 Lunges, 30   Station 2: 20 Skull Crushers, 20 Coupon Swings, 20 Coupon Side Jumps. Station 3: 20 T-Merkins, 20 Monkey Humpers, 40 Mountain Climbers.  Station 4: 30 Carolina Dry Docks, 20 Peter Parkers, 15 Squat Jumps.  Bear Crawls between each Station.

Completed a full round of these listening to various jams from R.E.M.  All was well until “Everybody Hurts” filled the air.  Ran to circle up and we planked together for the full length of the song.


Grumbles were heard regarding the uplifting nature of the song but we pressed on and a Pax mentioned he will be glad not to hear that song again.  He would be quickly disappointed.

Another round of 4 corners then sure enough “Everybody Hurts” again.  Circled up for more planks.  This song is longer than you remember and the beat is painfully slow.  The groans culminated with an unknown Pax yelling, “F*ck Michael Stipes!”


F*ck Michael Stipes indeed.


COT.  Special Intentions for Double Down.  Stay strong brother.


Rolled out of the O blaring Everybody Hurts one more time for those doing an extra credit run.


Good times
