A Tribute to Willard Scott


Despite a little snow, four faithful Gridiron warriors avoided the fart sack and attacked the morning with a passion unbeknownst to the common man.  Here is how it went down:

  • Parking lot tracers with forward/backwards runs and karaokes
  • COP
    • 50 SSH
    • 25 Russian soldiers
    • 25 DQ
    • 20 merkins
  • Mosey to the playground for a jerkin ladder – 7,6,5,4,3,2,1
  • Partner up for PLTs – 4x 25 reps
  • Mosey to pavilions
    • 25 dips
    • 25 step-ups (left leg)
    • 25 dips
    • 25 step-ups (right leg)
    • 25 dips
    • 4x 25 WWII sit-ups, 25 APD, 25 flutter kicks (2 count)
    • 25 dips
  • Run the perimeter of the Gridiron AO (apx ¾ mile)
  • Triple check – run bus loop, wall sit, deep squats
  • Mosey to the COT with YHC taking us out
  • 3rd F – breakfast at Einsteins

Today was a day that would make Willard Scott proud.  For those still receiving hate, google him.  The combination of snow and 100 reps of PLTs, dips, WWII sit-ups, APD and flutter kicks was a fitting tribute to the toupee wearing weatherman.  Add in some extra running and the PAX made the most of this glorious morning.  Sorry Honeydo, I could bring us to do 100 jerkins.  We wanted to be able to lift our arms this week.  Chum Bucket could probably pull it off, but we heeded the pre-workout disclaimer and checked it before we wrecked it.

As always, Johnsonville outpaced all of the runners, but it was great to see Byproduct put together his own hat trick.  Three straight weeks of beatdowns at the Gridiron.  Watch out Cal Ripken, here comes Byproduct.

Pre-game devotions will resume at Gridiron next week.  YHC will lead us in a look at godliness.  Better weather should yield a bigger PAX for that.

Today’s weather made it a fun one.  God is good all the time!
