Backblast- Bus Benches

14 Pax showed up for a Christmas Vacation beatdown: Water Wings, Gilmore, Crawdaddy, Florida, No Comprende (Welcome Back!), Checkbook, Fudd, Sprinkler, Dean, Whamo, Grannie Panties, Mulligan, Duvet & Shear Conn.

WOR: Short run, SSHs, Cotton Pickers, Imperial Walkers, Hillbillies

The thang: Circuit of back & leg exercises: 5/10/15/10/5 reps on all except burpees. 15 burpees were allotted with opportunity to reduce the count by answering correctly questions that pertained to the Christmas Vacation movie. (Note that the Q overestimated the sophistication of the Pax. Only a few had sufficient knowledge of the classic movie to answer questions correctly. And only Sprnkler the Q have watched it every year since 1989. Next time we’ll have trivia for less refined things such as A Christmas Carol, The Nutcracker or maybe even Carmen)

Circuit: Mozy to track for pull-ups, Bear Crawl up hill from gate to last line, Inverted Rows at the rails, Step-ups (Or Jump-ups) at benches. (7) burpees at the light. Rinse & Repeat with 10/15/10/5 reps.

Omaha was called for Mary. But first, to the song Mele Kalikimaka: Hold plank with a merkin for every “Kalikimaka” + a plank jack for every “Christmas”. (Water Wings counted (7) Kalikimakas and Gilmore counted (8) Christmases if I remeber correctly.

Mary: Low slow flutters / Cindy Crawfords.

Announcements: Gilmore & Crankbait collecting clothes & cash (to buy socks, etc) for the homeless on Christmas Eve. Please join them if you can.

Prayer concerns: Duvet’s uncle has terminal cancer / Dr Evil’s sister Barbara fighting cancer / Weaver family / Trexler family / Praise for Tent City being able to visit his Grandfather. Also praise for his Grandfather being saved.

Florida led us out

18 merkins for the 18 abortions that occur every 15 minutes in the US.
