Mosey back to Flag



Fun was had by all, well, maybe not all.  This workout was to show what a battle royal we will be seeing tonight as Atlee takes on cross town rival Hanover.  The Pax saw early that it will be a throwdown as Sugar Baby screams for his Hawks.  YHC laughed inside as he knows what is in store for the pax and that Sugar Baby’s babies will be Raiders.  The grass was long, the field was wet, the chatter was low (as Lab Rat cheated on us with the fart sack) and the workout was a beat down.  After only 5 burpees in the COH, chatter from a FNG about “only 5” brought another YHC smile as the approaching 11s was in sight.


A brief warm-up became longer as YHC put the squats in cadence…  Ugh.  Fun was realized that you can get into the Skybox for $35 (35 SSHs) or pay online for $30 (30 squats) or $25 if your a booster member (25 Imperial Walkers), etc…   After that warmup we went to the field and began Quarter 1.  YHC lived up to his FNG name as he messed up his count in quarter 2.  The pax was introduced to “Around the Clock Merkins” at halftime – you start at 12 o’clock and after every merkin you put your right hand next to your left hand and then move your left hand out and go around till you get back to 12 o’clock – or go clockwise L to R and R out.  In the third quarter we did “bounders” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TetOdoov7jk at 9:30 mark, they call it drive bounders) Time was running out in Quarter 4 so the 11s were cut down to the first 2 cycles. And yes, Abacus lived up to his name multiple times during Qing and namorama.


Spit reviewed some of the Mechanicsville workouts for everyone – Tomato Run, Da’Ville and now Mile’s Creek. Also talked about Dog Pile and other RVA workouts.

Abacus mentioned the upcoming Sept HDHH. We’re rolling strong on the southside on 9/28. Workout at 6pm, beers at 645. Details here:
