Q: Ponzi (Winning Team)

Ponzi was very surprised to find 27 PAX came out for what would become an epic kickball match. We almost had enough to field 4 teams. Next year! 

F3 Intro & disclaimer given

Welcome our FNG

We did a Khakis Warm-a-rama today in that we didn’t do one.

LET THE KICKBALL GAME BEGIN!!!

Kickball. Standard Rules apply. Out if the ball is caught mid-air or thrown out by getting hit by the ball. 3 outs.

Batter & Pitcher = no exercises.

Everyone else will be doing an exercise while the pitcher throws the ball.

Rotate out your pitcher every batter. New pitcher must RUN to the mound.

See below for list of exercises and who did them when.

ALL Field Player Exercises (except Pitcher):

Rules: 

  1. Any players on base have to join in on the exercises too.
  2. First basemen calls out the exercise but they can just be OYO to allow for more trashtalk.
  3. Switch pitchers with every at bat. RUN to the mound.

Exercises:

1st Inning: SSH until ball kicked

2nd Inning: Bobby Hurleys until ball kicked

3rd Inning: Shuffle feet & drop to the ground when ball is pitched then back up FAST!

4th Inning: Squat Jumps

5th Inning: Copperhead Squats

6th Inning: Ice Skaters (Can’t remember F3 name)

Rinse and Repeat if we somehow have more innings

Batting Team:

Rules:

  1. The LAST batter in the lineup calls out the exercise. 
  2. Keep doing the exercise until completed but if it’s your turn to bat, go bat.

Highlights of the Game:

  • The eventual losing team took a 5-0 lead after the first 2 innings, only to completely blow it and lose 8-7 (or is it 9-7 Armbar?)
  • Plague laying out 2 separate times, once for a foul ball, once sliding back to 1st.
  • Smashmouth having NO respect for Khakis & tagging him out at 3rd in between pitches.
  • Pony Express w/ a 3 run inside the park homerun! 
  • Room Service killing his team’s chances by popping the ball .
  • Baby Grand’s walk-off kick to win it!

Announcements/Prayer Requests:

  • Book Club today at Noon on Zoom. Reading White Fragility. I HIGHLY encourage everyone to read this book. It’s REALLY, REALLY good.
  • Prayers for Lowman with his recent bike injury
  • Prayers for Terry, Buns of Steel’s Dad, who needs a pacemaker

COT: 

I LOVE to remind people that life can still be fun and enjoyable along the way, even if we have tons of responsibilities and things weighing us down. We only get one life and we might as well find a way to laugh, enjoy it, and maybe be weird along the way.

So my message may not be all the deep today but all I wanted was for us to have some fun and forget about our worries and our struggles for a little bit and just have a good time laughing with our buddies. 

And don’t take yourself so damn seriously all the time! 

AYE!

Ponzi
