Several years ago, Peyton Manning made the phrase, “Omaha, Omaha” famous. For those that follow football, you know it was something you heard when he was calling an audible at the line of scrimmage (or maybe he wasn’t).
Thus was the case this morning. As the 6:00 hour rolled around, the Q wasn’t there, so Scotch asked if anyone had something they wanted to do, or were working on. YHC spoke up and took it on. Not sure what exactly we would do, I figured I would think of something during COP (I mean, we do a LOT of Little Baby Arm Circles, right?). YHC settled on a go-to Heart Rate #AMRAP. As we moseyed to the band practice field, Slum Lord asked if anyone had a kickball. I spoke up and said I had a football in my truck, and The Hollow had a scheduled punt back competition with Tomahawk coming up, so a practice round might be good. The pax agreed, and so “Omaha, Omaha” was in play.
Conditions: 80 degrees and humid

Rules of Punt Back:
Divide up into 2 teams
Team 1 kicks off (punt) from their own 35 or 40 yard line.
If the other team catches it in the air, they can move up 5 yards before punting. If not, they kick from where the ball was downed. The objective is to kick it through your opponents end zone. When you score, the opposing team does 5 burpees.
*Side note: According to Half-Empty, it is not advisable to block a punt with your face, even if Slum Lord is punting.
Although, this wasn’t the original plan, it wound up being a lot of fun, and most pax covered 1.5+ miles during the workout.
