No Running. It’ll Be Easy!

The temp was redonkulous, and the humidity was even redonkulouser.  I was the first to arrive, and apparently I parked in the wrong parking lot.  I’d only been to the Sandlot once before, over a year ago.  It was the first Sandlot post ever for the next few to arrive, so they followed suit and parked by me.  Cobains.

Full version for the first 9.  Abbreviated version for MIB and Holla Back as they each pulled in near the end of the WoR, doing their very best Meter Maid impression.

I informed the PAX that we’d be playing a round of F3 Golf.  It was at this point that a groan of despair emanated from the 1FQ.  

F3 Golf: a series of 5 minute sets, with 1 minute of rest in between.  Each set consisted of 2 exercises. The PAX would perform 12 reps of each exercise OYO, then 11 reps of each OYO, and so on until 5 minutes expired.  At the end of each round, each person’s score would be the lowest number of reps that were successfully completed for both exercises.  For example, if time expired while you were still working on 4 reps of exercise 2, your score for that round would be 5.  Lowest score at the end of the Thang wins.

Set 1:  Merkins/BBSU.  Winners: 7 tied with 1 point
Set 2: SSH/Flutter Kicks.  Winners: Bailout and Shoestring (1)
Set 3: Burpees/WWI Situps.  Winner: Shoestring (6)
Set 4: Mountain Climbers/Squats.  Winners: 5 tied with (1)
Set 5: Werkins/Monkey Humpers.  Winners: 5 tied with (1)
Set 6: Carolina Dry Docks/LBCs.  Winners: 10 tied with (1)

Final Scores:
Bailout and Shoestring: 14
Four Eyes: 17
Steinbrenner: 18
Altar Boy and Chioccetti: 22
MIB: 25
Reaper: 32
Choker: 33
Monk: 36
Holla Back: 38

On yesterday’s 43 Feet Podcast, Dark Helmet told a story about seeing a car pulled over with hazard lights flashing recently.  He stopped in front of the car, and started walking toward the car to see if he could help.  There were two ladies in the front seat of the car; an older lady in the driver’s seat, and probably her daughter in the passenger seat.  As he approached the car, the driver seemed to be a little frightened, unsure about DOAH’s intent.  But then he saw relief appear on the passenger’s face; she stepped out of the car and told him that she recognized the F3 sticker on his car, and knew that meant they were safe with him and that he was there to help.

My challenge to the PAX was to continue to act as the HIM that that sticker represents.  I think Memphis is starting to recognize who we are – let’s keep showing them.

Earned my shirt.
