Gipper and Lemon Law welcomed 18 PAX to the Oracle. Gipper shared the F3 disclaimer and said “Play Ball!”

Warm-A-Rama (Pre-Game Warm Up)

The PAX moseyed to the parking lot next to the baseball field (AKA farmer’s market area) for the Warm-A-Rama. Lemon Law reminded Gipper that he forgot to share the mission of F3 (VQ mistake). So Lemon Law shared the F3 mission before we began.

THE THANG

The PAX moseyed to the shot put/discus field south of the football field. Gipper explained the rules of the game as follows:

The game will be six innings. At each base (aka a piece of paper), there is a list of exercises, the number of reps, and the exercise to advance to the next base for each inning. Each player on each team will take turns leading the exercises. If one team passes the team in front of them, the team that passes the other has to do 30 burpees as a penalty instead of just being called out. Luckily, no one passed the baserunner in front of him. After returning to the base each team started at, they have to plank or Al Gore until everyone is finished. After each team has gone around the bases and returned to their starting base, the PAX will mosey around the perimeter of the field (following the sidewalk to the north, trees to the west, running back to the backstop, and following the street to the east).

The PAX numbered off by fours then went to their starting base. Gipper reminded everyone to modify if needed. The exercises as follows:

Lemon Law called the game midway through the 6th Inning. Because the PAX completed five plus innings, the game was considered an official game. The PAX then moseyed back to the shovel flags for six minutes of Mary.

6 MOM – Time to Bring in the Closer AKA Lemon Law

Lemon Law was brought in to relieve the starting pitcher, Gipper, to close out the workout. Lemon Law started with ABCs. After that, the PAX did 20 flutter kicks in cadence. Lemon Law was looking for someone to call out the cadence for American Hammers. Since Boom-Boom and TC were not present, Gipper was chosen to lead. The PAX did 25 American Hammers in cadence.

Announcements

Waffle House is organizing a Veterans’ Day neighborhood flag placement event on November 11th. He referred everyone the O-Rag for details.

Lemon Law also mentioned that Veterans’ Day is also Armistice Day which marked the end of World War I between the Allies and Germany. It took place at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. 

Lemon Law also asked for prayers for Folsom and his family as his grandma is in the hospital. 

Prayer

Lemon Law brought everyone together in a Ball of Man for prayer.

T-Claps to Lemon Law for Co-Qing with me today as I finally get rid of my VQ card.

Until next time, 

Gipper
