The Day the Music Died

The Day the Music Died

A long, long time ago…
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And, maybe, they’d be happy for a while
But February made me shiver
With every paper I’d deliver
Bad news on the doorstep;
I couldn’t take one more step
I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride
But something touched me deep inside
The day the music died

11 for the Skunk, matching the Hawks Nest crew in attendance. That’s where the similarities stop. We’re like Rocky IV training in the shed over here while they caper about on fancy track #7 like Ivan Drago in his state-of-the-art fitness lab. Pay no attention to the fact that Dolph Lundgren is a 3rd degree black belt with a masters in chemical engineering who put Sylvester Stallone in the hospital by punching him so hard during filming that steroid juice shot out of both of his ears. Focus on the important things, like being awesome.

Still focused? Good .

The general theme of this workout was Header complaining about the lack of personally curated music. Apparently, he is accustomed to members of his Soccer entourage following him around with a shoulder-mounted boombox whilst he gets his sweat on. He left disappointed.

I did give it a try though. Little does he know that while everyone was doing that awful burpee thing on the field, I snuck into his #MomJeep and pilfered through a big shoebox that had JREBZ MIXTAPEZ scrawled across the lid. I found some interesting jewels, but couldn’t get the Fisher Price working so we missed out on:

  • Chin Music plays the Best of Bryan Adams
  • Bryan Adams plays the Best of Chin Music
  • Down Home Gaither Family Beat Boxin
  • Song of Solomon, narrated by Big League Chew (rated M for Mature)
  • Hip Hoppin Soccer Floppin by the Wiggles
  • The Unabridged Christmas Shoes album, by NewSong

I was told that while I was snooping around, Baracus flat out refuseniked everything on the field and just jogged around harassing folks. I apologize on his behalf.

Lois was only a half-ninja today. Scorpion Wins, Flawless Victory.

Overall, I feel like this workout had the proper ratio of runnin’ to liftin’, like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Too much of either, and you’ve got one of those filthy Reese’s eggs with way too much of that sketchy dry peanut butter that only tastes good when you don’t eat it by itself. Nobody ain’t got no time for that.

Remember, call BR-549 for a fantastic deal on some great vehicles.

Is your profile picture a bottle of glue because you sniff it while you write your backblasts? Highly entertaining. Whatever you’re doing, don’t stop.

Voodoo’s comments are hilarious. I’ve got nothing really to say – that was hysterical. I stand by what i say though… if we are going to swing kettle bells in a circle for more than 5 min there needs to be some tunes. #hairnation #defleppard #vanhalen
