2020-07-27 School Six Backblast – “Getting your Monet’s Worth”

“10” PAX assembled into the gloom to see what YHC had in store…Water Wings, Mall Cop, Hand bells, Shear Conn (soulmate #1), Crawdaddy (Soulmate #2), Special Ed, Madoff, Slice-n-Dice, Gilmore, and FNG now named “Monet”, Dean (QIC)

Upon arriving, it was obvious it was too dark to start with the football…Water wings approached YHC and all I saw was a silhouette…luckily someone told me we had an FNG! Welcome Stuart, who is named Monet given his commercial painting background! Special Ed and Hand bells were instrumental in bringing him out, tclaps

After a flawless disclaimer we began WOR of:

Side Straddle Hops

Copperhead squats

Abe Vigodas (3 count each side)

Sun Gods


Then, we moseyed to the back parking lot. YHC, hoping the sun would be up by now had to improvise and make up exercises to give the impression he had a contingency plan….

50% down the lines, 100% back (2 times)

Then lunge down and backwards run back….

Gilmore made sure to note that the ISS flew by earlier in the day…since there were no witnesses we did 1/2 the regular burpees for said events…

PAX to Gilmore…but the Q gave Gilmore half of what he was looking for….

QIC checks the sunlight…not enough…so….to the hill for 7s of Lt. Dans and Burpees across parking lot.

I heard at least one PAX concerned about ticks

With the sun still in hiding, YHC tried to stall a bit longer with a 10 count…

With no sunlight in site, we headed to the amphitheater for 7s of Dips (IC) and WWI’s with 7x Monkey humpers each time at the porte cochere and a bear crawl up the hill…

After that, FINALLY, the sun came up.

We then did a football routine that was largely made up on the spot…at the end of the day it resulted in 4x Burpees and at least one dent in Special’s car…

Then time for Marys (FNG was told NOT to watch YHC on form):

Random Musings:

I think I heard Crawdaddy compliment YHC’s form during WOR…Pigs fly?

Special hid my football…I was very saddened.

Monet did fantastically in his first morning in the gloom.

Gilmore basically had to show FNG everything as YHC slacked…Thanks Gilmore
