Today could have gone much different if the Pax were smarter. But they just weren’t. I even gave them a heads up to study. But to no avail. Anyway, here’s what happened. By the way, all the trivia questions occurred on July 13th.
Warm up- We did stuff.
The Thang- Get your cindy and mosey to the pavilion.
The (UN) Lucky Horseshoe.
After each completed round, YHC would read a trivia question. Correct answer meant no burpees. Incorrect answer merited 5 burpees. As I said above, the Pax weren’t very bright.
Lap 1. 20 merkins- Lap Trivia Question. In what year did the Dean of St. Paul’s London, Alexander Nowell perfect a way to bottle beer? 1568 Fail 10 burpees. Thanks Toxic
Lap 2. 20 Merkins, 10 squats- Lap Question Who was the New-York Tribune editor that reputedly advised his readers to “Go west young man” Horace Greeley. Wrong 5 burpees. Great job Brexit
Lap 3. 20 Merkins, 20 Squats, 20 V ups- Lap, question: 1886 Wimbledon Men’s Tennis: William Renshaw beats Herbert Lawford for the 3rd straight year his BLANK consecutive Wimbledon championship. 6. Wrong by Bernie. This really pissed Brexit off, because Bernie said 1. Lots of mumblechatter that Bernie didn’t pick up on the fact that William kicked Herbert’s arse 3 years straight. Still would have done 5 Burpees.
Lap 4. 20 Merkins, 20 Squats, 20 V ups, 20 lunges- Lap, question: 1930 1st-ever football World Cup competition begins in where? Uruguay. Sweet Spot said Brazil and Toxic felt it was close. But its 1200 miles away……5 burpees.
Lap 5. 20 Merkins, 20 Squats, 20 V ups, 20 lunges, 20 block curls- Lap, question: In 1950, how many bone fragments did doctors remove from Ted Williams Elbow? Gekko said 11, it was 7. Damn
Lap 6. 20 Squats, 20 V ups, 20 lunges, 20 block curls- Lap, question. In what year did the BBC ban the Sex Pistols song “No one is innocent?” Hey Big Papi was a Hey Big Disappointment. 1978
Lap 7. 20 V ups, 20 lunges, 20 block curls- Lap, question: In 1837 Who was the first monarch to live in present Buckingham Palace. Queen Victoria. Brexit may have gotten that one, but he screwed the pooch earlier. Thanks Lego. 5 burpees
Time was called and we moseyed to the flag for a final round of Circle Burpees.
Thanks you ignorant and wonderful men!
