Been quite a while since YHC Q’d, but the prospect of a lot of rain did not deter. Four HIMs showed up, along with Spectrum 14, at The Goat, expecting a deluge and flood. We got neither, but we did get a Deck ‘O Death, as planned by YHC.

The Thang: After a short warm-up, we moseyed to the gazebo, and YHC pulled out his trusty deck of cards, always missing one Ace. This version featured 6 wild cards (duces and one-eyed jacks), and two special Jokers for YHC.

cards = reps, all face cards = 10, aces = 25

clubs = American hammers, spades = big boys, hearts = jump squats, diamonds = diamond merkins (of course)

With a wild card, the PAX that pulled calls the exercise, but the PAX to his right calls the reps

All was going as planned, then Tesla pulls a wild card, 2 of clubs. Of course he calls American hammers, but the rest of us gently remind him that he gets to name his exercise. So he calls 10 burpees. Wait a minute, the rules are the pax to his right calls the reps. Finally get it all square, and we continue. Joker comes up, and here is where a torrential downpour was suppose to wreak havoc. Nevertheless, we take a lap. Tesla again gets a wild card and calls for triple nickels, once again subverting the pax to his right from calling the reps. Oh well, I am sure we will all be able to understand the mind of a soon to be octogenarian one day. We get to the end with just enough time to add the 25 big boys for the missing Ace, then went into OT when YHC saw the 8 of spades stuck in the pack… 8 more big boys.


JJ 5K on the 26th, Iron Pax at Gashouse, Mt. Mitchell hike on the 27th.

Prayer requests: YHCs daughter, Buckeye’s roommate, SAs daughter, and the world in general.

Tesla took us out in prayer.

It was on honor to lead, Orangeman.
