10 manly studs and 1 non-manly Pax (welcome Buffy) enjoyed a good workout on a late June like humd morning at Gridiron. We also enjoyed the return of Tater from his 14th or so knee surgery. And actually Tater had more bounce than half the PAX. I also have to commend Johnsonville on his Julius Caesar like haircut. Of course I haven’t had a haircut since 2008 so what do I know?. Anyway, the workout went like this: Run around school (except for Tater) – COP: 25 SSH, 10 DQ, 25 Freddie Mercuries, and 15 arm circles Perform the baker’s…

Ten + One of the faithful posted at GridIron on a sunny spring morning, probably the prettiest day of 2020.

Var. warmups, including SSH, don quiote, imperial walker, hillbillies, copperhead squats, merkins, LBCs, etc. 50 forward arm circles. Staggered-start mosey to school and around counterclockwise.

No rain but soggy fields forced the loyal Gridiron PAX (just at the social distancing high water mark) to transition to the turf field at Striker Park for a date with a deck of cards.

7 regular studs showed up on a somewhat rainy morning to go through a consistent workout. Mumble chatter with the mature population was higher than normal; not sure if it was the rain, cabin fever or something else. Discussions included the correlation between sheep loving and COVID, involuntary bowel issues and sporting extra weight on your torso so a weight belt is unnecessary. COP: Jog around the track in front of Short Pump middle. 20 SSH, 10 DQ, 15 arm circles each direction and 25 Freddie Mercuries. Exercise: Next to the school there is a covered drop off area. I…
