Wild Kingdom Backblast: BOO VQ Tame the Lion by Being Present

October 27, 2020 | AO – Wild Kingdom | Lake Zorinsky Park | 26°

The Plague was organizing Ghost Q week and thought “Who would be great to VQ at Wild Kingdom?” It has to be someone with an animal name….LION TAMER! Perfect fit for Ghost Week! Lion Tamer was hesitant at first but The Plague convinced him that this would be a fun challenge. When The Plague reached out and asked Lion Tamer what his favorite exercises are, Lion Tamer replied “Burpees” – Alas! The perfect Co-Q!

As the pre-runners arrived back at the shovel flags, the rest of the 26 PAX were driving in. They were noticeably scared because of the BOO-Q week and uncertainty with who would be on the Q. The bell rang 0530 and Lion Tamer Roared to get the PAX in order.

Q: The Plague & Lion Tamer

This is F3 – Fitness, Fellowship and Faith. F3 is a national network of free, peer-led workouts for men. Our mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Core principles:

  1. Are free of charge
  2. Are open to all men
  3. Are held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
  4. Are led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary
  5. End with a Circle of Trust

Lion Tamer also mentioned that they are not professionals so PAX need to modify as necessary.

Lion Tamer absolutely nailed it with the mission, core principles and disclaimer. The Plague then put on his Tiger King wig and told the spooky story about the Legend of Ted Zorinsky. Ted would regularly roam the trails of Zorinsky Lake Park on his mountain lion looking for prey. However, the PAX today had no need to fear because they were being led by the Tiger King and Lion Tamer – we got this!

The PAX moseyed to the field and Lion Tamer led them in warm-a-rama. The Plague handed a Bluetooth speaker to the resident DJ, Mac N’ Cheese.
