New Site Brings New Life to Rebel Yell

New Site Brings New Life to Rebel Yell


The VSF was planted and like the Phoenix rising from the ashes Rebel Yell was reborn, full of new life, as 17 Faithful thawed out at it’s new urban location – Stonecrest.

The Thang

Frasier came screaming in at the last possible moment and caught up to the pax on our leisurely meander past the cinema to the parking lot behind Jersey Mike’s for a little warm up.

No WhiskeyDicking around this morning for the 2nd week of ‘Re-Rebel Yell’.  Matter of fact, I think we may have broken a record for Rebel Yell counts.  Part of the reason why we changed locations.  Glad to see that decision is bringing more PAX out on Thursdays.  Keep it coming.

YHC had more plans with that whistle today besides the Ring of Fire Up Downs but plans change, like they always do.  Figured it would come in handy during ROF as when mumble chatter was heard the whistle was blown.  There were quite a few whistles but surely not too many.

To think that YHC had Ballantyne Trace figured out would be a misconception.  An audible had to be called right away for a shorter run distance to help out with the chest and shoulder domination that was taking place.  Sorry for the confusion but hopefully you got something from it.

Glad to see Radar was able to whine his way into posting today.  Next time, do what I do.  Tell, don’t ask.  Recipe for a successful marriage.  And that’ll be $150.  Had his flatulence not choked YHC during the ‘Semi Gloss’ there would have been round 3.

Speaking of Semi Gloss, a bonus to all of us during this Arctic Vortex has been his inability to go all Chippendale on us.  Thank you Mother Nature.

Appreciate Semi Gloss taking us out in prayer.

As always, twas an honor to lead this morning.

The serene picture of Rebel Yell I painted a few weeks back went out the window as we lurked behind a suburban shopping center and then dodged cars crossing Elm in Yankeetyne. However, I will say that the Jersey Mike’s dumpsters did smell better than the Polo Ridge Port-a-johns.

Nice workout Spack! A true shoulder punisher.

Note: The JLo should remain a Maul exclusive. #hurtful
