The Thang:

Conditions: Another warm February Morning. 65*


Texas Ranger reached out for a PAX to cover The Village Q for O’Doul’s (heal up quickly, brother!). YHC has been feeling great, well, as great as this 54-year-old abused body can feel, and jumped at the chance. You see, Grunge was DR last Saturday and YHC was reminded of his Slaughter Beatdown when he was at the Village last March. 


Pulled into The Village at 0508, strapped on the headlamp to map out where the Slaughter Beatdown was going to go down. YHC stumbled upon Beefsteak doing pull-ups ala solo in the gloom. No time to chat, so a cordial good morning was made and on we went about our business. 


Cars were rolling in in big numbers but all of the PAX were exercising their minds this morning as they strolled by with notebooks and lots and lots of coffee in hand. The one straggler was Crankbait. One minute warning was given and a shortened disclaimer was exclaimed and it went down like this:



SSH, 25 IC

TTT, 20 IC

IW, 20 IC

Squats, 15 IC

Hillbillies, 20 IC



YHC called out for everyone to line up for an Indian Run, after some chuckles Crankbait and YHC Mosey’d the perimeter of the AO and ended up right next to the building where the other PAX were studying Every Man A Warrior indoors.
