3.13.21 BACKBLAST: “They’re, Their, There: How SAGA Spells HURT” (aka: SAGA’s Hill of H.U.R.T.) @ AO Mastodon – 7AM (end of Glory Week)

Pre-Blast reprise for context: On February 2, 2021 a very unfortunate thing happened to SAGA in the quotes channel of Slack – he thought this was a safe place, he thought acceptance and tolerance were before him, he thought “modify as necessary” should also extend to his disability in spelling – It was there announced that Tortuga, Jolly, and Cookies must pay for there insensitivity and this should extend to all the PAX who stood by and let him be afflicted with such correction. Having thus lived with being upset for over a month and the FACT that he did not feel cared for and knew it would be a few more years before he would gain actual respect, he has decided he would do what our current culture has taught him to do: he would become angry and let everyone know of his oppression! He should not have to put up with this kind of abuse (he sees the way you all look at him with that disapproving glare in your eyes—you should be ashamed of yourselves). The PAX have begun to murder him with there words so he has decided to murder them with his beatdown. He tried to understand why their so mean to him. What had he done to deserve such blatant rejection? He has tried to love them equally and find ways to support they’re causes. He must now speak his truth—you all have hurt me and must pay the price of you’re offense. You’ve experienced Shiplap’s HOUSE of PAIN—now it’s time for SAGA’s HILL of HURT. What kind of fire comes out of the furnace when coupons are thrown in?

WOR: Glory Week playlist began with Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA”

Motivators / Mountain Man Poopers / Mountain Climbers / Rochamburpees: Choose a partner. Both in chillcut plank position (elbows & toes). Play Rochambeau (rock, paper, scissors) while in chillcut. Round 1: loser does 1 Burpee, winner does 1 Merkin. Stay in chillcut and play several rounds, adding an additional Burpee/Merkin every round. EC: every tie, both do round # of Merkins.

Brought coupons to bottom of Hoffa w/flags…as Springsteen’s “Born to Run” began we completed a Glory Day mosey around the field w/flags & accomplished 20 burpees when two flags went down. Planted flags at the top of Hoffa & explained the workout with Glory Week inspired music at the top and bottom of the hill.


H = Hoffa Hill Manrise Sprint + 10 burpees at the top to celebrate your manliness

U = Upper Body (R1 = 50 overhead press / R2 = 50 curls / R3 = 50 rows) – REPEAT

R = Redrum (murder bunny up Hoffa, 10 blockees, rifle carry down)

T = Thighs (R1 = 50 squats / R2 = 50 lunges / R3 = 50 jackhammers) – REPEAT

6 minutes of Mary led by Springsteen’s “Oh Mary Don’t you Weep” as the PAX called out exercises: crunchy frogs, LBCs, flutter kicks, canoe, reverse planks, hip raises.

Back to the parking lot to the tune of Springsteen’s “Glory Days”


19 PAX in attendance: Banks, Beaker, Cookies, Babe, TBTF, Jailbreak, Katniss, Captain Crunch, Wet Burrito, Double Beef n’ Cheddar, Bloomer, Archive, Tortuga (respect)), Sparrow, Da Vinci, Jolly, Hotbox, SAGA (Q) + my 2.0 FNG was named: Stupe

Prayers for Archive and M as they navigate sleepless nights with the wee one, also lifted up Tortuga’s M and my M as they face mental and physical challenges, gratitude given for the lives we have to steward.

Hotbox & Tortuga led the way in reciting James 1 for the PAX.

Beaker drove to Aurora and brought us some delicious German doughnuts to enjoy during our coffeteria & stenciling festivities of 777 Glory, 8-ball, PAXademy, pull-up 500, FNG Drive, etc.
