Magic Dick FNGs the F3Blitz playlist on Nat’l Bagelfest Day

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Raleigh

26JUL = National Bagelfest Day (whatever that is) so we paid tribute to our Jewish brothers and rock-n-roll heroes with appropriate playlist. Status of specific religious affiliation is according to wikipedia and other online sources without a whole lot of fact-checking. (Forgive me if not entirely accurate). As usual, I find myself melancholy on Blitz […]

Monkey In The Middle

Cinderella called this the Rolex of workouts. Cinderella says a lot of things I don’t really understand, but Rolex’s current slogan is, “The Benchmark for Excellence.” This reminded me of the Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
