There were no lights illuminating the soccer field and track, so The Ricky Bobby was gloomier than usual as the PAX assembled.  YHC had arrived early to stage 2 tractor tires and a few orange cones on the softball field for the main event.  At 5:28, Tesla strolled through the gate from the parking lot with a bounce in his step, a twinkle in his eye and a few scraps of paper in hand.  He muttered about the darkness and retreated back toward the field to flip on the lights as the clock ticked 5:30.  Attempting to punctually begin the beatdown, YHC offered the standard disclaimer and money-back guarantee to a half-empty circle of PAX as, over a hubbub of voices returning from the track, Sargento authoritatively insisted “Tesla, you’re not the Q today!”  YHC did, however, offer Tesla the consolation that we would be getting dirty.

Confusion slowly dissipated, but with order restored The Thang went like this:

Warm up with SSH and Imperial Walkers (10x each IC) then 5 burpees OYO.

Mosey to the softball field to fulfill YHC’s promise to Tesla.  The 8 PAX paired off for a modified “4 corners” routine:
Behind 3rd base:  Tire flips, Plank jacks, then return tire flips
Left field:  Big-boy Sit-ups and Bobby Hurleys
Center field:  Nolan Ryans and Lunges
Behind home plate:  Mickey Mouse Merkins (sequence of Werkin-Diamond merkin-Werkin for “WDW”) and Mountain Climbers

First round 10 reps each, then rinse and repeat with 15 each (except WDW merkins remained at 10). 

After 2 rounds, the group left the field for an “Ab Blast” – each PAX called 10 reps of his chosen exercise in cadence.  2 tortuous rounds included American hammers, flutter kicks, Hello Dollys, protractors, dying cockroaches,  oblique crunches, etc.

Next was a Triple Nickel of dips and shoulder taps that left 2 minutes to spare.  YHC seized the opportunity to have PAX retrieve the “4 corners” cones from the softball field but called for a karaoke on the way.  Then a quick mosey back to the flag just in time for the POA and COT.
