12 men, apparently thinking they were teenagers, suited up for another game of Ultimate at Heartbreak Ridge in the gloom. They welcomed one FNG, who held his own well, and then took on the field for (likely) the last game of F3 Ultimate this summer. YHC felt like Rod Tidwell’s QB after floating one too high for Angus, only to watch — in slow motion, “Jacked UP” style — Mouse Trap to come streaking into the picture, both men fully collided and then flopped on the ground. It keeps replaying over and over in my head, and it wasn’t pretty. Angus…

11 strong and willed HIMs posted for a nearly perfect conditioned morning at Heartbreak Ridge. The rumor mill must have been humming of YHC VQ’s the day prior as some Summer Tourists descended to a West End AO staple at Quioccasin Middle. Hoedown’s workout was tough to beat, but we gave it hell trying. COP With a leg heavy day ahead for the PAX, we had to get our wheels warm. Football style warm up utilizing the parking spaces in the Bus Lot. 2 rounds: Sprint forward, shuffle left on the horizontal, back pedal, shuffle left horizontal. Repeato to the…

5 Fantastic athletes showed up wondering who would take the lead on this nice warm morning. It went a little something like this: Handshake Q: COP: 20 Side Straddle Hops, 10 Don Quixotes, 10 Merkins and 20 (?) Freddie Mercuries. First Exercise: Indian Run around Quioccasin Middle School Second Exercises: Pole Running – each PAX grabbed a pole and alternated between flutter kicks and leg lifts while a PAX ran down and up the bus loop. Did that a few times and my abs are looking good right now. Passed to Fireman Ed for Q: Third Exercise: Run to…

22 game changers showed up for the ULTIMATE in fun workouts! 11 per team, with each team broken up mainly in those that listened to directions and brought a white and black shirt, and those that just showed up with standard issue dark shirts. So I dont sound like a complete racist going forward, teams will be called Noon for the white shirts and Midnight for the dark shirts (I was called out a couple times this morning). Midnight quickly jumped out to an early lead, and it was 4-1 before most of the Noon players realized that maybe the…

Nine. That is how many regulars were ready for the beatdown this morning. As the Q went to set up on the nice grassy field and plant the first shovel flag to make an appearance at HR in quite awhile, most of the Pax looked on with curiosity, and likely a few meant-to-be-funny comments. THE THANG Mosey around the track for a quick warm-up and end to a COP at the South end: Invisible Jump Rope x20Don Quixote x10Hillbillies x15Russian Soldiers x15Kickbacks x15Merkins x10 (2-count down, 2-count up) Touchdown Beatdown: A mock football field was marked off for the following…
