In the immortal words of Harry Doyle, the fictitious play-by-play announcer for the Cleveland Indians in “Major League”, “We got one god**mn hit?” This classic phrase came to mind as YHC pulled into the OPES parking lot at 6:57 a.m. to find one other car parked. Against his better judgement, Fugitive exited his ghetto sled to await instructions from YHC, as he looked longingly towards Rea Rd in the hopes other PAX would soon show. They didn’t. YHC prepared a workout, thus the pain commenced.
YHC committed several Q mistakes, a) No disclaimer, b) 7:02 start time, and c) asking Fugitive if he actually wanted to post. No quarter asked, no quarter given. Off we went into the gloom like a couple of crazed banditos…
Mosey to the OPES bus parking lot a.k.a. The Meat Grinder (to your hands if you forget gloves). Face up because circling up is not possible with only 2 PAX.
On to the running portion of the program.
Left on Rea, Right on Windyrush, Stop at Windyrush-Windyrush intersection for Mary. Right on Windyrush. Stop at Windyrush-Edenbridge intersection for Mary. Right on Edenbridge. Right on Rea. Mosey to benches under the big oak tree.
Mosey to basketball court.
Mosey to playground.
Mosey to Rea. Left on Rea. Right on Edenbridge. Left on Windyrush. Mary. Left on Windyrush. Left on Rea.
Return to Launch.
Major props to Fugitive for enduring the lonely beat down, especially considering he is 2 weeks removed from a bout with bronchitis. I have always considered Fugitive a PAX of the sound judgement and character especially considering his 2.0 attends The University of Alabama. That judgement is now in question after he failed to flee this edition of Ascent/Olympus. Like Rodney Dangerfield in “Caddyshack,” “Oh, my arm. It’s broken.” To bookend the Q fails, there was no Takeout at the end. Perhaps Fugitive trudged home and said a prayer for YHC and for the general state of F3. One can only hope.
YHC takes solace in the fact that Bama is the reigning National Champion and that F3 does not issue nor revoke Q cards. Redemption is just around the corner.
