  • Thanks Burt for the shout out … Glad to be back and let me tell you which you already know … The Thang was tough to say the least! As the step-in Q, great job! Around the baseball field with burpees galore was extremely brutal. I continue to push but DANG you all are still my mentors. I strive to be you all someday! Callahan … your posts are so articulate and quite witty. I aspire to post like you someday with those humorous pot shots that make the backblasts so much fun and entertaining to read … bravo my friend! 3Dubs out!

  • Oh, come on!! That nomenclature is garbage. It makes absolutely no sense! Where’s the logic? I need some logic. This is just some hocus pocus granddaddy garbage

    And what the hell is a CD??

  • NMS:

    – Starting off a workout just doesn’t feel right without first visiting the plushest and most heavenly grass known to humans. TOC’s grass game is locked in.
    – TOC itself is a rusty barrel full of burning garbage and maggots feasting on bull feces.
    – The heavy chatter concerning the site Q’s (or lack thereof) was particularly pleasant. I even dubbed Bartman and Billy the honorary Site Q’s when the real ones are MIA. Which just so happens to be always.
    – YHC posted the DZ flag at SNS this morning. That flag has gotten around lately. First, the Mule, then FOD, then SNS, next is DZ, then the Bull after that. A flag well-traveled.
    – Which reminds me of a convo Shutty and I cahooted about at the Mule…why is the DZ flag so freakin’ heavy? Sucker made of lead?
    – The burpee cycle sucked as bad as it sounded it did.
    – The last round featured an incredible discussion regarding Maria Sharipova, a middle linebacker named Serena, Peyton Manning, broken hearts, and Shut-In’s inability to count to 12.
    – All that in about a 30 second span. It was impressive.
    – I heard some jokers cat-calling my woman this AM. Lay off! Dolly’s mine!!
    – If I sound too much like a 5-year-old girl, I apologize.
    – Things got dangerously off the rails after the baseball diamond fun. I think the smell of rotting fish seeped into Burt’s brain on the way to the picnic shelter rendering him unable to count (a la Shutty)
    – If we were to select the most naturally beautiful PAX, who ya got? (I think you know where I’m going with this). I’ll keep my selection to myself, but the name rhymes with, uh…Koney?
    – My poetry game is not locked in…
    – That freakin’ Largemouth is out of this world fast.
    – Goose was more appropriately dressed today. It was a good thing.
    – The funniest part of the day came at the end during COT when Burt, as he mentioned above, closed out the Nam-o-rama prior to YHC getting a chance to sound off. It was hilarious on so many levels. If he meant to do it, that’s the most diabolical disrespect I’ve ever been privy too, and it was great. If he didn’t mean to do it, it’s by far the greatest “Senior Moment” I have ever witnessed in person. So good. So very good.
    – No kidding, we got into a legitimate conversation about vinyl records today. I learned that 78s are the big ones. Goose was incredulous.
    – T-claps to Burt for stepping up and taking the reins today as the substitute Q. Well done, good sir! I look forward to your next clusterQ
