The Thang

Sets of Sevens: On each floor, the PAX did a lap around the floor of the parking deck and then stopped at the top of the ramp for a set of 7s. This was repeated for each floor, plus the ground floor. YHC provided most of the exercises, but Joker was tasked with leading two different floors’ sets. The Sevens included, but were not limited to the following exercises:

  • Merkins
  • Doorway Curls
  • Jump Squats
  • Assisted Squats
  • Squats
  • Penguin Crunches (IC)
  • CDDs (IC)
  • Lunges (IC)
  • Johnny Dramas
  • Irkins
  • SSHs (IC)


Sevens: Leg Lifts / Freddy Mercurys

Chillcut Plank: Approximately 15 secs.


Isaiah 30:18Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.

  • Celebrating the 1st birthday of YHC’s youngest son, Milo Justice. Milo means “merciful” and Justice is self-explanatory.
  • God is both merciful and just, without conflict or strain. We often vacillate between the two, sacrificing mercy for justice or vice versa. And some struggle more with one than the other, but God does not, and we should look to him to help us to be more like hi.

Kneeling Prayer


  • YHC woke up at 0703 to a silenced alarm and shortly received a text from one Joker inquiring as to everyone’s current location and why that current location was not City Center at Oyster Point. These two events cooperated to bring YHC to the Ferguson parking deck at approximately 0715.
  • YHC had originally planned for a tour of the Ironclad AO’s many nooks and crannies, but the pouring rain and tardiness conspired to keep it all to the Ferguson garage.
  • Anyone who thinks they are competent at math or–for example–basic kindergarten counting, should endeavor to complete a Q like the above that involves almost entirely 7s, 11s, or 21s.
  • Some mumble chatter about the PAX’s respectively uncooperative young children with regards to sleeping at a time convenient to the rest of the family.
  • One PAX indicated that he “always have penguins on the brain.” Leaving aside any moral judgment, that resulted a couple reflections on penguins in media, including their bloodthirstiness and subterfuge.
  • YHC will give a gift to whomever can decipher the title of this back blast.
