Herd Mentality



Herd Mentality

24 gathered at OPES on this morning for #F3Hydra.

THE THANG

We took off from the launching point, toward the back of OPES, and circled the entire school before coming back to right where we left, stopping for COP.

  • IWs x 15 IC
  • Merkins x 15 IC
  • MCs x 14 IC
  • LSS x 15 IC

Mosey over to the the SCRA pee wee football practice field and line up abreast for a couple rounds of 10-20-30, which consisted of running the length of the field and performing the called exercise for the prescribed reps.

THE SKINNY

I arrived a little early to OPES to find a lone One Eye doing parking lot laps after running in from his home. I took a lap around the school, just to make sure what I thought was there was still there, and when I returned most of the herd had assembled. This Q has been on the books for a while, actually scheduled by former site-Qs Marge and Queen. I think they have all of 2019 scheduled so there’s really nothing for Gummy and Sprockets to do except send out reminder messages and show up. Except, I guess they did work weekends to pave a little strip in the parking lot with some fresh asphalt. It was nice. The new site Qs…I guess they balance each other’s strengths and weaknesses. Sprockets sprints everywhere, does all the reps, and waits in high plank without being asked to do so. And Gummy, well he tells me before launch that he’s “probably going to mail this one in this morning.” #YouCompleteMe

In set #1 of the field 10-20-30, Puddin informed the pax that he hadn’t quite finished his morning business. Most of us lived the next 35 minutes in fear for our lives. #DontCutTheRedWire

Good to see Hopper back out this morning, his first post since having a bionic shoulder installed. He subbed squats and lunges for all the upper body work…legs are now less like twigs and more like trunks. Spackler also graced us despite a hectic work week of playing golf today, and attending the golf tournament Friday and Saturday.

Jet Fuel told the story of Evelyn’s Rock yet again, like he was narrating a documentary on the History Channel. His voice is silky smooth, and he has that off-camera quality about him.

Warm and humid spring mornings means there’s going to be #ShirtlessGloss sighting. And since it’s before the pools have opened, it means he hasn’t had that annual back waxing appointment. Why wait Gloss? Check out www.bakblade.com and save us all.

I’m sure there were other stories I missed…chime in in the comments. Thanks again to Marge and Queen for asking me to Q…and to Gummy and Sprockets for renewing my contract.

ANNOUNCEMENT

Just trolling backblasts…so here’s some random commentary.
Puddin’ cut the red wire on Tuesday at Hawk’s Nest….mercy.
Who’s Q’ing Hydra in 2 weeks on the May 16th? #askingforafriend
You know it’s warming up when Deep Dish posts twice in a week….did he have long sleeves again this morning?

    Haze, you’ve clearly got a cult following… I believe 24 is the most pax we’ve had since the good ole days when Puddin’ used to do promotions like dollar hot dog mornings (or legend has it).

    Hops, below is the Q schedule to round out the month… then things get interesting…
    5/9/2019 Sleepy (sub for Hopper’s shoulder)
    5/16/2019 Gummy (if he’s not too good for it, with the new promotion)
    5/23/2019 CheeseCurd (if he still lives here… haven’t seen him in a while)
    5/30/2019 Hops (if his morning ministry schedule does in fact change by then)

As Gloss would say, “Things. Many things Gentlemen”.

Hey, don’t hate the player. Just hate the game. Somebody has gotta do it boys.

They are still twigs, Haze, but thanks for the solid! Great Q as always bro! Great to be back!
