YHC loves Batteau, it’s a darn fine AO, but Hoedown is so darn close.  Regardless, it was great to be back there after a long hiatus.  A quick glance at Big Data shows that Ponch has posted 8 times in 2 weeks.  He’s clearly drinking the Kool-Aid.  Drink it up buddy, this Kool-Aid won’t kill you, in fact it’ll make you stronger.  Side note, that expression should really be Drinking the Flavor-Aid, just look it up if you don’t know.  Speaking of Ponch, as he walked up to YHC this morning trying to recall YHC’s name, “Splinter right?”  Not quite, but I get that a lot.  Can’t wait for Ponch to see YHC and Splinter side by side and see how comically different we are in stature.  Later having not grasped YHC’s name pre-workout, “was it Fudd?”  Not quite, but I get that a lot.  Just messing with you Ponch, if you knew everyone’s name already YHC would wonder what really was in the Kool-Aid.  Anyway, great to have you out on the regular.  One other interesting tidbit from the morning.  Unless YHCs eyes deceived him, Tobit was wearing his gloves as he drove up, making him the anti-Mr.Roper.  YHC wonders if Tobit also wears his shoes to bed at night.


Home Run Derby – Tuesday @ Huguenot Little League (2801 Robious Crossing Drive, Midlothian, VA 23113) – May want to bring a glove

American Arena League Championship Saturday at the Coliseum – YHC will be there, will you?

When EF Hutton speaks, people listen.


  1. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Great job this morning guys.
    Thanks for writing it up EF.
    See y’all in the gloom..

  2. Way to push, men! Did anyone check Tobit’s trunk to make sure he wasn’t hiding something…

  3. Maybe I’ll start wearing a bandana to workouts, speak infrequently but when I do it will be about tackle football, and see if people start calling me EF Hutton.

  4. Enjoyed the hot potato this morning. It did not disappoint.

    The original plan for my hot potato Q was 11s on the hill by the stairs. But after Flange’s valley-to-hilltop Dora, I chucked that for the triple check. Seemed like a good idea anyway…vacation at the beach starts next week and this fella needed to work the abs.

    Also, way to pay attention EF! Gloves were definitely already on when pulling up morning. It’s been awhile since posting to Batteau and was worried I was running late….so gloves went on during the drive. …Or at least this is the story I’m sticking with.

  5. Nice correction on the title! I was thinking that as I read it….as my brother mentioned it to me over the weekend and Shakedown not 20 minutes ago!

    Heil ME!
