Ten of the faithful posted on a lovely late-summer morning at GridIron. Johnsonville (YHC) took the Q, and this is what went down, more or less: COP warmup — Don Quiotes, Imperial Walkers, 50x arm circles (front) + 10 big, merkins, LBCs, 50x arm circles (back) + 10 big. Mosey over to the grassy knoll past the dozen or so pickleball courts that Henrico county is building on the site that formerly housed the sand volleyball courts. 10 minutes of burpees — no explanation need. Mosey to original pickleball courts. 10 rounds of suicides divided by various plank and wall-sit…

Arriving early to scout the AO, YHC found a construction site where the sand volleyball court used to be… so YHC took a jaunt around the AO to scout new COP points. Just about that time, Tater pulled up, and was noted to spend a few minutes in deep contemplation swinging on the playground swing set. There is something wonderful and mysterious about a full grown man enjoying a swing set all by himself. There were just four gloom warriors to take on the day, but as the watch ticked over 7am, the Jville clown car came in hot with…

A solid dozen posted for Saturday’s GridIron including one FNG. As usual, there was some grief-giving and breeze-shooting just before the 7:00 hour. We started on time per my satellite-supported armband and began with each in attendance picking a lateral parking lot line which we used for 5 minutes of jogging forward and pedaling back. Regathered in a circle for a warm-up with Side Straddle Hops, Imperial Walkers, Russian Soldiers, Don Quixotes, Hello Dollys, Susan Somers(es), and Arm Circles. Stroll to the edge of the parking lot facing down a short hill to the tree line for mobile Elevens. Jog…

Ten redwoods fought the fartsack to witness ByProduct’s consecutive Q, while many of the Gridiron regulars were on sabbatical until next week. COP: After the PAX made a perfect circle, YHC called an audible and we all moseyed to the lower football field were we were once again greeted by props. Batting Practice: In preparation for this week’s home run derby, we all took turns swinging the bat. The leadoff batter hit one of the two balls as far as they could down the field. The PAX ran in full sprint and a bandaid was ripped from the ball…
