Backblast – The Mutt – 12/8/18 – Embrace the Suck!

When Gepetto asked someone to Q on Saturday I have to admit I wasn’t the first one to step forward but I knew he needed some help so I thought what the hell, I’ll do it. I like the extra 15 minutes on Saturday because that last 15 minutes can be really tough. I followContinue reading “Backblast – The Mutt – 12/8/18 – Embrace the Suck!”

Preblast – The Mutt – 12-08-18 – Backdraft on the Q

Tomorrow will be my last post as a 45 year old! One of the many things I have learned over the years is to just say what I mean. So I am not going to sugar coat it, tomorrow morning is probably going to suck! But don’t let that discourage you from posting! Join meContinue reading “Preblast – The Mutt – 12-08-18 – Backdraft on the Q”

Pre-Blast – Blackops @ The O – 11/05/18

If you’ve been missing that little bit of something to start your week off right I’ve got just the thing for you! Come join me tomorrow morning at The O and I will help kick start your week. We will visit Cogan’s corner/court for sure and play some BlackJack. I’ve got some other dumb stuffContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Blackops @ The O – 11/05/18”

Backblast – The Rooster @ Le Mutt – 10/30/18 – “Small Amount of Running”

First off, sorry for getting this out two days late. Secondly, I guess there was slight confusion in my pre-blast. It seems “a small amount” of running was interpreted as NO running, or 0 running, or Backdraft hates running, or… well you get my drift. For any of the 28 who attended and thought weContinue reading “Backblast – The Rooster @ Le Mutt – 10/30/18 – “Small Amount of Running””

Backblast – The Hurt @ Le Mutt 10/20/18 – The Harry and Lloyd Show

When Geppetto announced that he needed a Q for The Hurt on Saturday I thought it would be a perfect time to bring out the ol’ Harry and Lloyd routine. I was going to Camp Piomingo with my son’s class for three days, so coming up with a full Q would have been tough. WhenContinue reading “Backblast – The Hurt @ Le Mutt 10/20/18 – The Harry and Lloyd Show”

Back Blast – The Mutt – 09-11-18 – All Gave Some, Some Gave All, Never Forget.

Today marks the 17th anniversary of the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and Flight 93.  2966 people died that day. As I mentioned during COT, the first responders who worked in the aftermath of that tragedy are continuing to die from illness today. Let us never forget the sacrifices that were madeContinue reading “Back Blast – The Mutt – 09-11-18 – All Gave Some, Some Gave All, Never Forget.”

Pre-Blast – The Mutt – 09/11/18 – 17th Anniversary of 9/11

As we approach the 17th anniversary of 9/11, the four Q’s at each AO have put our heads together to come up with an F3 style salute to the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice that morning. Here’s what was lost that day: 412 total emergency responders of which 343 were firefighters; 2966 totalContinue reading “Pre-Blast – The Mutt – 09/11/18 – 17th Anniversary of 9/11”

Back Blast – The Extender – 09/06/18 – Where’s the Ghost Flag?

Apparently, Kilo and his crew of merry men from The Vet had designs on stealing the Ghost Flag from its rightful owners at The Mutt. Unfortunately, the flag had been absconded with the day before and was residing at The O. As we later came to learn, Kilo’s crew had 2 fart sack’s so theContinue reading “Back Blast – The Extender – 09/06/18 – Where’s the Ghost Flag?”

Pre-Blast – The Extender – 09/06/2018

It looks like from the calendar that there are a couple VQ’s tomorrow morning which is great! But if it’s an old fashioned beat down you crave, come on out to the Mutt. I can guarantee some coupon work and that you will get better. If that sounds like something you might be into, getContinue reading “Pre-Blast – The Extender – 09/06/2018”

Back Blast – #TheAgony – 08-30-18 – Q Juice Insomnia!

No matter how many times I Q a workout I always have trouble sleeping the night before. Call it nerves, call it “Q Juice”, or call it my fear of almost killing Ming and maiming one other FNG last time out. It didn’t help that Airplane had asked me to Q at The County andContinue reading “Back Blast – #TheAgony – 08-30-18 – Q Juice Insomnia!”

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 viewedContinue reading “Back Blast – #TempleofGloom – Sick Bay”

Pre Blast – #TempleofGloom- 08-09-18 – I am back!

Guess who’s back for a little Qing fun at the O tomorrow? You guessed correct, it’s your ol’ pal Backdraft, revisiting the AO that started it all for me! Its been a while since I have posted at the O, so I think I might reacquaint myself and the PAX with some tennis court work,Continue reading “Pre Blast – #TempleofGloom- 08-09-18 – I am back!”

Back blast – The Mutt – 06-23-18 – Aiken Legs

So I must admit, walking out of Molly Malone’s after the Ruck party last night and hearing a snicker here, a laugh over there, and endless “Are you really Qing tomorrow” questions, I was more than a little concerned. My hips and calves were aching and my shoulders & chest hurt so much that itContinue reading “Back blast – The Mutt – 06-23-18 – Aiken Legs”

Pre Blast – The Mutt – 06-23-18 – I AM SO STUPID!

When I originally signed up to Q tomorrow morning I had no idea I would be doing the Capture the Flag Ruck the night before! After Gepetto pointed this out to me the other day all I could think was “You’re so f%&$ing stupid!” None to worry gentlemen, I will be ready to roll inContinue reading “Pre Blast – The Mutt – 06-23-18 – I AM SO STUPID!”

05/29/18 – Back Blast – The Mutt – Ring of Fire – Part Deux

After Q’ing in Lexington on Saturday with Gepetto, I felt like I had a pretty good game plan for The Rooster on Tuesday morning. I went to bed about 11 pm and thought to myself, Ok, six good hours of sleep and I’ll be ready to go! Well, not exactly, 3:26 am my eyes popContinue reading “05/29/18 – Back Blast – The Mutt – Ring of Fire – Part Deux”

Backblast – 4/23/18 – Veterans Park – Coupons, raindrops, and introducing the Say Anything time bomb!

As I wrote my pre-blast yesterday I knew there was a chance of rain but I thought “It will probably miss us”. NOT A FREAKING CHANCE! It rained before, during, and after but 7 Pax made it out in the gloom at Veteran’s Park this morning! I wanted to try something a little different butContinue reading “Backblast – 4/23/18 – Veterans Park – Coupons, raindrops, and introducing the Say Anything time bomb!”

Pre-Blast 4/23/18 Veterans Park – Backdraft on the Q

What’s that you say? You like coupon work? Yeah, we will have some of that. Oh, you like to run?!?! Me Too! We will definitely have some of that! Dark, cloudy, 56 degrees, and a 60% chance of rain you say? Just another perfect morning at The Vet! It beats 20 degrees and snow anytime.Continue reading “Pre-Blast 4/23/18 Veterans Park – Backdraft on the Q”

01-17-18 – Backblast – 5 HIMs became reacquainted with our old friend Murph at the #TheMutt #frozenblender

As I rolled up to the #TheMutt this morning and saw one motherrucker rucking along and only one other car I was afraid my preblast scared the rest of the PAX off. Alas, I was mistaken; Glen Ross rolled in right on time and Diguorno took Tiger’s place by flying in on two wheels. WeContinue reading “01-17-18 – Backblast – 5 HIMs became reacquainted with our old friend Murph at the #TheMutt #frozenblender”

01-17-18 – Preblast for the #frozenblender

As I sit here contemplating my sanity for even considering working out in negative degree wind chills and 0 degree temps consider this for a moment: You’ll burn more calories – As the body works harder to regulate its core temperature among the elements, you’ll burn a few more calories during your wintry workout. You’ll strengthenContinue reading “01-17-18 – Preblast for the #frozenblender”

Backblast – 12/7/17 – Tour Le Mutt – #crushedcoupons #nomatchforF3pax

15 Pax posted at Le Mutt this morning for a cold weather beat down. Due to the cool temperatures we had to heat things up quickly. Started with a short mosey and circle up. Warmed up with 15 count hammy stretches, 15 count downward dog stretches, 15 count grass grabbers, 15 count Abe Bagodas, 15Continue reading “Backblast – 12/7/17 – Tour Le Mutt – #crushedcoupons #nomatchforF3pax”

BACKBLAST: 09-14-17 #Couponmile #Blackjack at #TheMutt

My VQ experience did not disappoint! I was so worried about confusing the PAX with the Coupon Mile I didn’t realize how tired I was until the Water Boy looked at me like I stole a piece of his birthday cake. I learned a few things today, such as red and black make a purplishContinue reading “BACKBLAST: 09-14-17 #Couponmile #Blackjack at #TheMutt”
