Parking Lot of Pain

THE SCENE: 77° and gleeking. With the exception of Big Tuna (aka Halpert) and his eFNG lil bro, it was a late arriving crowd this gloomy morn. Pronto Pup came in on his hog in a Cannonball Run tribute to Burt Reynolds (#RIP). Roomba would’ve only been on time if we were on Mountain Standard Time.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: PAX were challenged the rest of this weekend to identify something they could specifically do to demonstrate the “I am third” (IM3) mindset that exemplifies the HIM. Acknowledgement was made regarding the difficulty with football on all day the next two days, but men do hard things. How can you love/serve your M? How can you engage your shorties? How can you lead your family in serving someone else so they experience IM3?

Pronto Pup spoke up and exhorted the PAX with a reminder to put down our phones. AYE!

MOLESKIN: Shout out to Big Tuna/Halpert for supplying half the PAX with gloves for Vacuum Cleaners. It’s like they had never F3’d before. Shout out to Pronto Pup and Roomba for pushing through limits. Shout out to Nature Boy for being the most technically sound exercise technician and encourager in the 901. Shout out to OJ for rocking those thirsty ½ length tights. Shout out to your mom for the humidity.

GrowRuck is nigh. Prepare your hearts.
