Destruction @ the Morg.


A beautiful 65 degree Monday morning with malice on its mind.


Standard warm welcome and disclaimer with a reiteration that I am no professional.


Nothing fancy here…… 20- SSH followed by 20ish Windmills. We finished warm-o-rama with a slow mosey around the parking lot.



Inspired by my trip to Vegas later this month, I decided to do some gambling on my first Q. Instead of gambling with money I do not have, I decided to gamble with the lives of the PAX in attendance. The game chosen…… “Deck of Destruction”.

Using a very well shuffled deck of cards, PAX drew a card from the top of the deck. (This was modified to me drawing for everyone to save time.) Each card had an assigned rep/movement associated with it.

  • All Jokers = Indian run around parking lot. (Unfortunately, the Joker did not show.)
  • All Aces = Bear crawl to cone about 120′ away. Crab walk back 120′.
  • The number on card = number of reps for the exercise. All face cards warranted 10 reps.
  • Spades = Squats
  • Clubs = Lunges
  • Diamonds = Merkins
  • Hearts = Burpees because who doesn’t love burpees!
  • If a 4 was drawn it resulted in a 30 second plank.
  • If a 3 was drawn it resulted in a 30 second Al Gore hold.
  • If a 2 was drawn it resulted in an exercise chosen by a selected PAX.



  • 0 Indian Runs
  • 240′ of bear crawls
  • 240′ of crab walks
  • ~ 100 squats
  • 100 < Lunges
  • ~ 100 Merkins
  • ~ 50 Burpees
  • 1 minute of plank
  • 1 minute of Al Gore
  • Jasmine dealt us a shoulder smoke.
  • Soldier Boy dealt us 10 Imperial Squat Walker.
  • Phat Pat saved us from another round of bear crawl/crab walk.
  • Dealer choice was another mosey around parking lot.




PAX  circled in the middle of the lot in between two cones. PAX held plank while one member sprinted to first cone and back-peddled  to second cone only to fall back in circle to resume plank. Next PAX up. Rinse & Repeat with Big Boy Sit Ups and American Hammers.


20 Pax on the pain train. No FNG’s. In attendance, Moana, Wall Builder, Choker, Woodpecker, Zima, Orange Julius, Bob Ross, Jasmine, Phat Pat, Carport, Tree Hugger, Commie, Part-Timer, Sleep Number, Soulja Boy, Granola, Green Monster, Big Al, Bad  Credit, and White Castle.


*Readers note* On the verge of merlot, I gave the circle of trust my best effort. Hopefully you will get something out of what I have written below.

Are you better today than you were yesterday? We have all heard that question before. Generally, our first action when we ask ourselves that question is we immediately think of terrestrial and tangible items. Items such as becoming bigger, faster, and stronger, excelling in our careers, making bank and driving range rovers, or becoming a scratch golfer.

But as Christians, what does that question mean to us? I believe our main job as Christians is to help lead people into a growing relationship with our Lord and Savior. How do we do this? By being better today than you were yesterday. Are we living our life in a manner that would make a non-believer take notice? You never know who you are talking to but someone is always watching you.

YHC brought up an incident where patience was lost in front of 2.0’s and it made him question “If he was better today than yesterday.”

In the fog of battle, YHC forgot give selected scripture. It comes from Mathew 5:16 “In the same way, let you light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”


Pray for Carport as one of his family members is going into surgery.

Jasmine on VQ Thursday. I am sure it will be entertaining.
