7 men mostly avoided the rain but still had plenty of cold weather for this week’s episode of Kevlar.
Orange Whip reached out to YHC a few weeks ago looking to round out the Q schedule. While YHC was once a regular at Skunkworks on Tuesday, YHC is pretty sure the HR file will reflect less than five appearances at Kevlar. It’s not out of reach for YHC just a matter of making it there on a Friday as opposed to running or fartsacking. The tales of Kevlar’s former glory days have been passed around a workout like a bottle of Thunderbird pre-Covid and they all sound something like an Al Bundy football story. Talks of gear and some dude named the Hoff and maybe an English chap named Bulldog. It may all be nonsense, Horsehead will know. He’s good at nonsense. Don’t worry men, Kevlar is still a legitimate workout with a solid AO under good leadership. It just needs better advertising. Maybe a spot at the Bo Round for all those vaccine recipients to read while waiting to get stuck with a needle.
Anyway, YHC was geared up for the workout. Weinke at the ready and regretting the possibility of cold and wet weather, a plan was hatched to hit the covered pavilion. Orange Whip reached out talking about an injury from ultimate soccer with some boyz from the hood. He was bringing a kettlebell, so no running. No problem for YHC. This morning though, YHC got a late start, for no other reason than being slow. Showing up about 3 minutes early to the covered pavilion to drop off some supplies and pulling into the parking lot at 0530, YHC was met with the pax taking off on a run with Orange Whip in the lead (how’s that injury?)

That’s all YHC has for today. Now time to go back and listen to garage punk rock from Mississippi. Because as Tiger Rag, aka: McRib, so wisely said, “If South Carolina lets you down, you can count on Mississippi.” (probably misquoted from what YHC heard this AM, but YHC will be damned if that doesn’t sound like Tiger Rag) And there ain’t no good garage punk rock from South Carolina
Thanks to Rhapsody for the take-out.
