Color Commentary:

Smaller crew this morning, but lots of effort.  Despite alternating reps with a 53lb bell, Rhapsody and Narc still pushed the sprints, and Caesar held his own when he wasn’t taking plays off.  Where’s Gandalf when we need him?  Caesar’s “more cowbell” demands were some of the best Christopher Walken around.  Speaking of walking around, pay no attention to the Q’s ambling circles after each exercise – the blind dizziness makes it hard to find the bell.  No surprise, it was hot.  Lots of topless men (not me), and yep, KC is indeed Rifty. Had it in my mind that the original silverback, Hillary, would be there, maybe Uncle and TML too, but just not in the cards today.  We’ll get you men next go round.  Big doings tonight with Booty’s fundraiser.  Crazy what can be accomplished when a man applies initiative and effort to a dream.  T-claps to Booty and so many others like Slaughter, Pipeline, Marv, Deertick, Waco, and Tolkien who are making it happen.  And the F3F forerunner Haywood, who’s hosting the BBQ and beverages tonight for 24HoB.  It’s good stuff, and we’re blessed to play a small part in all of it.  Nancy Drew’s lining up some new Qs for the next few months – guys like Sauerkraut and Narc who are overdue and will deliver the goods – and I’m betting you’ll see Combine get progressively stronger in the coming months.  Maybe even lure ole Ben Franklin back…not holding breath.  Hope all you guys left swampy and swole this morning.  I know I’ve been dragging all day.

 

Announcements:

Sunday’s QSource topic is ARTICULATION.  Kickin’ Chicken, a man with a big mouth only slightly eclipsed by an even bigger heart, has got the lead.  It’ll be a good one.  0815-0845, Brueggers in Cotswold after 7B4Seven and Caffeine runs.
