Always 70 and Sunny
Always 70 and Sunny

T O G A, Toga


A dozen studs from Richmond and one visitor from Tennessee descended on the grounds of Mary Munford for an early morning beatdown. As always, 70 and sunny.

The Thang: Mosey to bus circle, curb crawls to seven, repeat seven and back down. Stay at bus circle, Proper Dora. Copper Head Squats, Jump Squats and WWII setups. Mosey to side of MM for modified triple check. 20 WWII, LBC, and merkins. Mosey to Northwest corner for COP. Mosey back to the flag to finish.


I always look forward to a good thursday morning beatdown at MM. I pulled in, saw two cars and found swirly in the parking lot talking to none other than TOGA. What a surprise (I didn’t say a good surprise, just a surprise). It has been a minute since Toga has graced us with his presence, but today was one of those days. Lots of talk about his balls (as always) as well as reminiscing about how joyful and happy he always was as a pax member in Richmond.

Because of this joyous occasion of Toga being back, I wrote him a little song (no representation that it is good, but its the best I could do).

I met him in a field down in old Richmond
Where you drank gatorade and it tastes just like
Coca Cola
C-O-L-A Cola
He walked up to me and he asked me to partner
I asked him his name and in a dark brown voice he said, “TOGA”
T-O-G-A Toga, to to to to Toga

Well, I’m not the world’s most physical guy
But when he partner carried me he nearly broke my spine
Oh irritating Toga to to to to Toga
Well, I’m not dumb but I can’t understand
Why he walked like a gorilla but talked like a man
Oh irritating Toga, to to to to Toga to to to to Toga

Well, we drank Gatorade and ran all night
Under under the skyfilled moonlight
He chased me down and made a fool out of me
He said, “Old man, won’t you go home to the infirmary?”
Well, I’m not the world’s most intellegent guy
But when I looked at his bald head,
Well, I almost punched irritating Toga
to to to to Toga, to to to to Toga
Toga to to to to Toga, to to to to Toga

I pushed him away
I walked to the door
I fell to the floor
I got down on my knees
Then I flipped him off, and then he at me
Well, that’s the way that I want it to be
And I always want it to be that way for irritating Toga
to to to to Toga

In all honesty, it was great to have you back today Toga. When you moved, the group lost a great leader and a valued PAX member….

  1. Just wow! It looks like someone put some thought, and longing, into this little number. The description of the voice really deserves some further discussion. I miss you kids as well and will see if I can put together a TYA country song for my next visit.
