Ball of Man: Roscoe closed with prayer


  • This one really sucked. A double stack suck of Jacobs Ladder AND Strings of Fire. #crowdpleaser
  • I really thought Merlot would be spilled today. Lots of gurgling, but no Merlot.
  • Roscoe has proven to be a master of pain. Well done; great Q. #SteppingItUpaNotch
  • “My fingers are so cold.”   “Don’t worry, in a few minutes they’ll be numb and you won’t feel ’em.”
  • I’ve never seen more old people walking dogs than we did this morning. At least 8 canines.
  • The breaking dawn early was a treat and a tease — Daylight savings time starts this weekend so it’s back to the gloom. Warmer weather is on the horizon, however.
  • Welcome to Clodhopper! He is part of a group trying to assemble in Lexington.
  • Tajh spoke in the COT on the importance of form and full range of motion. He will Q on Saturday.
  • Shirts will arrive today and be distributed on Saturday.
  • EM to Chaser, skiing in Breckenridge (talk about suck — it’s you)
  • EM to Beano on Saturday — running Columbia Half Marathon, only the half because he’s “running it with a friend.”
