Naked Moleskin –

There was much chatter regarding Cowboy and his merkin style. What is a Cowboy Merkin? Basically a Carolina Dry Dock. What is a Cowboy Carolina Dry Dock? Basically a squat. We tease only because we love….

QIC Slapshot emerged from the Providence Plantation clown car with orange cones in hand and placed them strategically aroud the football field….then did not use them at all during the workout. Was he going for the imitidation factor?

Reminder of the southland convergence on Sept 8 at Calvery Church – “The Rock”. The Charlotte South F3’ers invite all metro and north guys to join us that day to help launch this new site.

Shoutout to some of the new guys who continue to post – Pinstripes, Coal Miners Daughter and others. Good work men!

Slapshot, a native of the Empire State [not sure where… Buffalo, Rochester… somewhere cold], landed in the gloom wearing a long-sleeve T-Shirt. Next week be on the look out for him in a winter hat [or toboggan as he would call it].

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
