Wait…you want me to slap a ball?

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 03/17/2018
  • The PAX: Twister, FarahandFarah (respect), Toxic (respect), Feud, Heisenberg, Pyro, Big Bird, LIFO

Seven PAX joined YHC in the gloom, and it was still gloomy since the clocks were set ahead a week ago.  There was some talk about brackets being busted and one PAX just getting rid of sea legs. Football

Warm up:

  • Reachers 16 IC
  • Hillbilly 16 IC (in honor of Marshall winning)
  • Pretzel crunch right side 16. F&F asked if we are doing both sides to stay even
  • Wonderbra 16 IC (this threw them for a loop)
  • Pretzel crunch left side 15 IC (F&F said since we did one less, we will definately be out of balance).

No on picked up on the 16 IC due to 16 seed team winning previous night.

The Thang:

Since March Madness is full upon us, what should we do? That’s right, throw footballs.

PAX line up face one direction, spaced out. Count by 2s. each person takes 2 steps back. Now in zig zag formation.

Starting at one side, just throw the football from person to person. While you are not in the act of throwing or catching, do and extercise. If a miss all pax do and exercise.  After the ball makes it to the end, all do an exercise.

5 rounds:

  • LBAC/ 10 merkins/ 5 burpees
  • Chinoonk / 10 Werkins / 5 burpees
  • Raise the roof / 10 diamond / 5 burpees
  • Moroccan Nightclub / 10 stagger merkin right arm fwd / 5 burpees – Toxic at first thought the right arm fwd was for the Moroccan Nightclub, not sure how what would work.
  • BAC/ 10 merkings/ 5 burpees

Few notes: due to darkness, it was very hard to see the football, and on few occasions Big Bird reiterated that this was not why he was on the football team.

The Thang 2:

How/What – Each PAX (8) took a turn throwing the football. Overhead – the ball gets harder when it’s wet (That’s what she said).

How – how we get to the football – some examples: Karaoke, bear crawl, crab walk.

What – what we did when we go there – some examples: Iron Mikes and Parker Peter.

Note: Toxic tried to sneak in a punt. This did not work, as the ball we over his head and landed 2 feet away.

The Thang 3:

The Pax noticed another football. YHC informed them this was in place of a cone.  The football was tossed 20 yards away.  The PAX had to get there.

1st round – crab walk forward to the other ball and kick along the way.  Everyone else squats while waiting.

2nd round – bear crawl to other side, but slap the ball on the ground. Overhead – I didn’t know we’d be slapping some balls here. Everyone else raise the roof ( I think, cant’ remember)

3rd round – inchworm and ball slap to other side. Everyone else hillbillys – form went in the dumps by the end.

Circle up:

  • Guantanamo
  • Protractor for the math people
  • LBC 25 IC
  • BBSU 15 IC
  • WW1SU 10 IC

Finally the 2 footballs where thrown in opposite directons.  The 2 balls and the shovel flag made a triangle. Slow mosey around, pick up the balls as we passed and ended up at the flag.

Naked moleskin:

Prayers – Twister’s family travelling, Feud’s M – illness.

Core principle – From Freidship to fellowship. Reach out to someone you haven’t done so in a while. Even just to say Hi. You never know how this will affect someone. YHC indicated contacting his cousin and saying it seems only when there is bad news to share. I said I’ll make a point to reach out, even to say Hi much more frequently, and mabye no reason at all.  It doesn’t have to be a family member, reach out to a friend. You never know what the next day brings – such as the case of the pedestrian bridge collapsing in South Florida. Some of those people were just waiting at the light to turn green.

Until next time.

LIFO says Hi.
