The 20 x 11 idea was recycled from my first Diamondhead Q last year.  It was Nibbler approved then so I knew it was safe to bust back out.  We got off to a fun start today with Nibbler lobbying for LaLanne to be the “creamy middle” in a Ruck Sandwich.  Then Wahoo dropped his bell during a track by Broken Bells (good luck??)  Rev was great at the Miyagis but it took him a while to realize we were doing Merkins with each one.  We thought we saw Skoal running down Princeton but it was just some other fast guy in bright green neon.  I’m glad Charcoal was there since he’s down to just 2 workouts a day now.  John Boy was a quiet beast.  Meatball has been looking forward to my Q since Saturday.  Van Winkle runs me hard on Sundays so I need a 0.00 on Thursdays.  Hoedown partnered me up, then showed me up by doing 1 more upright row than me.  Valdez should change his name to Val-Diesel.  Ruckers Pigksin, GV, and LaLanne got in on some Mary with GV taking a shot at one of my jams.  Dude, I was there for that Christmas playlist.  Thanks guys, SYITG.



Skoal Bandit is still recovering from eye surgery.  Please check Rev’s tweet for the meal train link.
