Workout Date:





Bling, Billboard, Geno, Turn and Cough, Bubbles, Lombardi, Weedeater, Stewie, Varsity, OneCall (QIC)

The Thang:

20+ degrees colder than yesterday!  34!!

YHC always enjoys #Warthog.  The mumber chatter is awesome, the AO has tons of places for beatdowns, the “main” field has literally zero drainage and is always covered in goose poop.  Anyhow, Bling and I had some communications about our awesome carpool [you other guys are just jealous] and we left a few early so I could try to find some relatively dry ground.  After arriving and hearing Billboard cranking his death metal, I wandered around with cones in hand looking for the right place.  And I found what wound up being pretty darn dry, if not super cold, ground.  Then the 3 of us were chatting when we saw Geno’s vehicle pulling in.  There was no way we thought that was Geno.  You see, he has a horrible case of bursitis, and has been out for a while.  He even went so far as to send us detailed medical notes on the subject.  In fact, we had to set up a slack channel dedicated to Geno’s IR and his bursitis to help both the physical healing and the emotional side effects.  So Billboard assumed it was the M, coming to let us know Geno’s condition.  Plus, he is never that early.  But to our delight, it was Geno, wrist brace on, and ready to go.  I must say I am flattered that his return was on a day of my Q!

We also saw the outline of Turn and Cough’s Jeep!!  What a great sight.  After the sad loss of his brother in law, we were very happy to see Turn and have him back with us.  We love you man.

Then the usual #Warthog crew – Weedeater with a diesel work truck from the 50’s that was killing trees as he drove by and caused a horrendous coughing fit by Bling.  Bubbles coming in without his weight vest, and of course, shorts.  Lombardi as always ready to roll.  Stewie was also back and quietly gets work done throughout the beatdowns!  Varsity rolling out of bed to make the 1 minute warning!!
