5.23.23 Back Blast: Bag of Wrenches @ The O, riginal

Didn’t sleep much last night. In part because I was really excited to show my wienke to The O fellers. But mostly because I didn’t know who would make it out. I mean you had the Fountain of Youth at The Boondocks, Huggies celebrating his birthday, Ed getting in his 32nd Q of the month, Wide Right neighboring at The County, Vincent promising greatness at The Hawk’s Nest, Lambeau doing what Lambeau does and Fall Guy….being an inspiration to us all with his 6 yr postiversary whilst on the cusp of triple (R). I mean…who would show up for your little ole Bird?? Well guess what, when you got a Finkle in your corner you’ll still get #’s! I mean dude’s been coming out only since the end of August and his EHL for FNGs is second to none, he calls guys out individually to make em accountable and I motion to rename him Shake Shack because his milkshake for CSAUP out in the Gloom is so strong it’s silly! I’m sure he played a part in the 15 strong that showed up on this day to see what your Bird had under his wing.

The PAX: Spanx (R), Sump Pump (R), Russdiculous, Masse’, Bean Soup, Finkle, Doubtfire, Flo Jo, AirPod, DUff, Coyote Ugly, Club Car (FNG-welcome!), McAfee, Handbook, BigBird (Q)

0530, disclaimer was given, welcomed our FNG who used to be known as Mason and off we would go for a warm up mosey around the tennis courts. Circled up once we arrived for some COP stuff. Per the norm, chatter was pretty minuscule until we got to the pigeon stretches…or Caitlyn Jenners….or Bud Lights…Seemed to be just the spark we needed to get these boys in the correct state of mind…for whatever reason that might be…

Thang 1: ran around the court fast and then slow for the duration of the Flock of Seagulls song. I had some audio technical difficulties and Sump Pump and McAfee were right on time giving me grief. Song finished up and we were loose now, ready to get after it for…

Thang 2 whilst being motivated by words and song: 5 Burpees, Bear Crawl, Dry Dock, Bernie, sprint, recover mosey. 5 Burpees, Lunge Walk, Jump Lunge, Bernie, sprint, recover mosey. 5 Burpees, Broad jump, Bob Hurleys, Bernie, sprint, recover mosey. Duff was getting in the 5% and didn’t want to stop. We wrangled him in, got a couple 10 counts in and moseyed to the playground for…

Thang 3: 10 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of 5 pull-ups (wherever you found a space), 10 merkins, 15 squats and then a 150 yard out and back. Hand slaps were shared, words of encouragement were plentiful, and greatness was achieved together! 0611, we met up with Finkle and corralled back at the tennis courts for 3 minute of Mary with BBSUs, Flutters and Fred Mercury’s.

0614 with a minute to spare was just enough time for your Bird to relive his days on Sesame Street with a sweet little diddy titled, “The Ladybug Picnic.” PAX would hand stand, balls to the wall, er um…fence for the 60 seconds of pure audio bliss until the song was over and the 0615 time was called.

Circled up for COR, NOR & COT. Flo Jo was our “6” so he shared how long he’d been coming out and how he got his name. We had an FNG (Mason) and named him Club Car because he cracked his skull flying out of a golf cart. Doubtfire was quick on the draw with this naming convention! Made a bunch of announcements because there is so much fantastic energy and activity going on in our region right now. Sent prayers up for Donut and thanked the Sky Q for our blessings, each other and the prospect of another day. Y’all my boys and I appreciate you for making it out!

Until next time…
