Whoopsie Wham-O – PAX in a circle, all PAX doing squats constantly. One PAX tosses a disc to another PAX and rinse/repeat. If the disc is dropped by anyone, all PAX do a burpee. For time, approximately 5 mins.

Captain Thor Two Ab exercises in a 1:4 ratio. The PAX did WWII (GTE style):Crunchy Frogs. Made it to 4:16.

COT

Luke 18:13–14: [13] But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ [14] I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

  • YHC has been listening to the Paul Tripp podcast a lot recently, and he has an ability to absolutely level you with conviction and then present you with the grace of Jesus.
  • When discussing this passage, Paul Trip talks about how knowing what is right just for others’ sake is not the key, but rather applying it to yourself.

Moleskin

  • LinkedIn rode up on a motorcycle instantly making the rest of the PAX look 23% less badass by comparison.
    • 2 Wheel expressed interest in showing up on his own twin-tired vehicle (as his nickname would suggest), but the problem that needs to be solved first is breakaway leather pants.
  • Some questionable tactics during the War of Attrition with respect to the placement of mark-making chalk and one person marking for his teammates.
    • Some PAX also raised questions about whether or not Wilson sandbagged to get on to Dreamliner’s team.
  • The PAX are perplexed, curious, and a little trepidatious about the origin of the name “Carolina Dry Dock.” Important questions were asked about what was being docked where, and by whom.
  • There were a few really half-assed throws during Whoopsie Wham-O, and not just to Wicked (though someone said he had “the hands of a lineman”). Perhaps it was the aforementioned blusteriness.
    • Dreamliner surmised that YHC placed himself in the circle so that he would be throwing with a tailwind and that’s why his throws were so precise. YHC set him straight–it was not the wind, it was just the fact that he is better than everyone else.
  • Random note pertaining to the COT: YHC would like to be Paul Tripp when he grows up, and not just because of the magnificent and distinctive facial hair.
  • Napster and LinkedIn are both in their last 1.5 week of finishing THE CYCLE so be sure to welcome them at your regular AO.
