A Lopsided Hawaiian Beatdown

The shovel flag was staked in the DHS schoolyard and 27 souls gathered in the gloom for Mission’s return Q. I’m sure the spirited pax and close-to-freezing temps reminded him of the Hawaiian island he just left.

Ball of Man: Sway led closing prayer


  • Solid Q by Mission, who asserted his command when Logo suggested a harder version of an exercise. He simply said “NO.”
  • Spirited workout with lots of chatter — Mission took it somewhat personally that people could talk and wondered if he was being too easy on the pax
  • With Beano absent on official business, Sway deemed the AO a “flutter-free zone.” The mandate was quickly violated by Mission
  • After the ab work, Jordache was delighted that his “abs are gonna look awesome.” Enjoy Spring Break while us old farts live vicariously through you. #youthiswatedontheyoung
  • Fail of the day: Robber calling cadence in SMM. It’s harder than it looks, but hey man — it’s not rocket science
  • I’m not sure exactly what the comments were concerning Roscoe’s squat form, and quite frankly I don’t think I want to, but it was entertaining
  • Woody — an architect — informed us this morning that the proper name for a cinder block is a “CMU” or “Concrete Masonry Unit.”
  • Epstein’s Mothers to Beano and Heartbreaker


  • Shirts should be in this week — Columbia and F3 Racing Shirt
  • Promo’s 5K on April 13 and Quarry Run on April 20
  • Beano’s ceremony on June 15
