10 men of duck-like character braved a constant rain Monday morning to support the brothers to their left and right. It was a glorious time of camaraderie, highlighted by the return of the surgically repaired Mouth-to-Mouth, who sat upon a throne-like folding chair, kettlebelling his way into our hearts and minds. His coffee was spot on, even if his cup game was lacking.
WOR: mosey loop around the parking lot, copperhead squats, weedpickers, SSH, sungods and Michael Phelps.
THANG: DORA. Partner A ran the loop while partner B farmer (fireman) carried a coupon(s) in the same direction. Each time the pair met up, they did Bropees (partner burpees, with theoretical high-five at the top), beginning at 10 and decreasing by one each meet up. There was an option to set the coupon down at any point and do 10 squats.
With 7 minutes to spare, we stowed the coupons and conducted timed sprints until the end.
COT: 6th man Honeypot astounded the crowd when he revealed that a gallon of honey is going for $100 (tax free). Prayers for Honeypot’s time and intentionality with his family, continued healing for Mouth-to-Mouth and safe travels for Lizard King.
OBSERVATIONS: Narco isn’t always a teamplayer. He’s a charmer and that hair probably opens doors for him in life but that only goes so far when his partner is forced to run 3 loops to catch him (also running) with the coupon. Not nice. Dadgum Jackalope struck a deal with YHC to show up this morning in exchange for a Q at the Rock. He subsequently crapped out before the last sprint. It is a well known principle of the law that one party’s failure to fulfill any of its contractual obligations is known as a “breach” of the contract. A breach occurs when a party fails to perform on time, does not perform in accordance with the terms of the agreement, or does not perform at all. Guilty Jack.
Nequick’s partner refused to look him in the eyes so their bropees were sort of side by side with an awkward sideways medium five. The return of Pig Knuckle to the Vineyard, in rugby socks no less, was noted and appreciated. At coffee, Jackalope changed into a pink Minnie Mouse towel and Tiny Tat could not get enough. He was smiling, giggling, commenting and just generally seemed enthralled by the whole thing. Those two are cute together.
Final shout outs to GoDaddy’s encouragement and Bosox’s stoicism. They were beautiful and constant companions on a soggy morning. Thank you gentlemen, 10 strong, for helping to start this week of right.
