Oracle backblast – The back nine
Sep 11, 2021 | Oracle AO | Boys Town | Weather 67
PAX: Hey Hey, Patton (RESPECT), Mulligan (RESPECT), Sweet Tooth, Starkist, Tuna Fish, Cheap Seats, The Curse, Double Deuce (FNG)
Q: Room Service
Room Service welcomed the PAX, gave the mission of F3, recited the 5 core principles and verified that he was not a professional. YHC definitely had the pressure of the Two Club Conundrum on his mind as he was just a bit off for the opening. The PAX moseyed to the stairs for some warm-a-rama.
Imperial Walker – 11IC
High Knee – 9IC
Sun God – 11IC (forward and back)
SSH – 20IC
Pre-Thang – one round of clock merkins on the steps…the PAX were told no gloves would be needed so performed 5 at noon, 3, 6 and 9.
We played golf…one PAX hit a 1994 3 wood or 7 iron to determine where the hole of exercises would take place. From there we moved around the 9 holes. Getting to the hole was a combination of sprints, crawls, lunges, or back pedal depending on how far the ball was crushed.
Hole 1 – Par 4 – Carolina
Carolina Dry Docks 15, Squats 20, Jump Tucks 15, LBC’s 15IC
Hole 2 – Par 3 – Dogwood
Dirty Dogs 15 IC/leg, Merkins 20, Lunges 10/leg
Hole 3 – Par 5 – Pickletree
Pickle Pushers 15IC, Werkins 20, Seal Claps 20, Jump Squats 15, Low Dolly’s 20
Mulligan crushed an orange ball so far with the 7 iron that the PAX lost sight of it and had to go back to the van to replenish the ball supply. I think it got buried in the same hole that Ponzi’s ring was lost in. There is some type of triangle at this AO.
Hole 4 – Par 4 – Cherry Blossom
Cherry Pickers 20IC, Sun Gods 10/f/b, Johnny Drama 20IC, Elbow to Knee 15/leg
Hole 5 – Par 3 – DiamondHead
Diamond Merkin 10, Sumo Squat 15IC, Flutter Kicks 20IC
Hole 6 – Par 5 – Chucky
Chuck Norris 15, Bobby Hurley 15, AST 15IC, Monkey Humper 15IC, Big Boys 15
Hole 7 – Par 4 – American Glory

Plank 45 sec, Chillcut 30 sec, Plank 45 sec
Hole 9 – Par 5 – Snakeskin
Copperhead 20IC, Tempo Merkin 15IC, Pickle Pointer 15IC, Crab Cakes 15IC, Burpees 5
American Hammer – Rancid style with each PAX calling out two.
Today is the 20th anniversary or 9/11; I know most if not all can remember exactly where they were at that moment and how that day affected your life. I recently watched a documentary on Apple TV and Netflix about that day and it is so powerful to put yourself back in that timeframe and think back to what you were thinking. I don’t have the words to honor the bravery and understand what people went through that were much closer to the situation, but I did come across a great quote that resonated with me.
This was by Sandy Dahl who was the wife of Flight 93’s pilot which was taken down over Shanksville, PA before more damage was done. She says “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate”
I think we are constantly reminded that life is short but the lesson here is that there is no time for hate. Hate solves nothing and keeps us going down this spiral to even the score and never move forward.
