1)     Consensus was Apple Weather “feels like” temp was off today.  Didn’t appropriately adjust for the wind chill which went away sometime in Part 2 for YHC

2)     Mighty Mite made it on time this week but continued with his social distancing.  Dr Fauci would be proud

3)     Frehley’s Comet is getting his daily servings of vegetables and it’s keeping him well powered with natural gas.  One time we were happy with the wind today

4)     Wild Turkey was putting in the work today – with his pre-jump and powering through it all today

5)     War Eagle was playing the strong and silent type today

6)     Voodoo was steering away from football conversation today with the retirement of Drew Brees and offering up great tips on “radiating strength” today during Part 1

7)     Thanks to all for putting up with my odd warmups and over abundance of Mary – always a honor to lead

8)     Live Aid was a benefit concert held July 13, 1985 for famine relief in Ethiopia and was the source of all the live music today
