Game Notes

  • Props to Tuck for the inspiration. He led a basketball-themed workout last year during Virtual workouts and I loved the concept
  • Wingman needs to be renamed Jump Man after his broad jump prowess. He hopped twice the distance as everyone else in half the speed. Next time I’ll bring a hoop so he can dunk on us
  • Olaf was absolutely amped at COT when he ripped his shirt and threw it to the ground. He’s got a new level of confidence and testosterone after getting back in the swing of regularly posting and Qing
  • Picasso you should come to Da Vinci on Saturdays. Just sayin
  • T-claps to Crockett for posting for the first time in nearly 2 years. Glad you made it out this morning and shared your incredible story. Good to have you back in the gloom and hoping you’ll accept my Slack invite
  • Props to Teddy for posting after getting back from vacation. Either the vacation or side effects from the 2nd dose had him catching his breath for most of the second half.
  • Loogie’s jeep nearly got stolen by some shady teenagers who were hanging out in the parking lot before and during the workout. Might be time to take up Teddy’s innovative key-hiding technique. Don’t worry Teddy, I won’t give away your secrets.
