The Red Pill or the Blue Pill

The shovel flag was proudly planted and 23 pax descended onto the frozen tundra of Dreher High School to ponder the question “Does the cold numb the pain, or does the pain numb the cold?” Sway was prepared with two workouts and gave Padre a chance to play Obama: The Red Pill or The Blue Pill? Padre chose red, and the pain commenced as ice crunched underfoot (do they really need sprinklers in February?)

  • 2/2/13 theme – most counts to 22 or 13 UNTIL…
  • Beano called flutters in Mary “in honor of the 82nd Airborne Division.” We did 82. Abundant cries of BS.
  • Sway: “Next time we’re doing those in honor of the Big Red 1.”
  • There is a motion on the floor to rename Lt. Colonel Beano “Major BS.” It has been seconded.
  • Racing shirt and Spartan Race promoted.
  • Welcome back Windmill! And welcome to Chugger posting from CLT. Also good to see Boss Hogg.
  • Epsteins Mothers to Tahj, Mission, Mel, Seeker, and a couple more who made the effort but I can’t remember.
  • Chugger in town for his brother-in-law’s birthday dinner, tells him at the table on Friday night “Don’t drink too much, you’re going with me to Dreher at 7am.” Welcome Lay-a-bout. #HeHadNoChoice
  • Working hard here to keep the pace quick and steady with little down time, cram a bunch into an hour. Leaving the blocks ’til after saved idle time. #NoteForFutureQs
