While 8-8-19 was about yourself renaming yourself due to any dissatisfaction of someone else renaming you, today is about your fellow Pax getting to know you hopefully a bit more. The names were certainly more entertaining than yesterday. What I noticed is that when a Pax brings a new “FNG”, “Fresh New Guy”, or “Friendly New Guy”, we either have a name pre-determined or we all ask questions to help get to a clever name. No cleverness needed here at Troy today.
Here is Part Deux of a five part series:
Pax in attendance: Mr. Brown, Tank (Respect), Coors, Hitchcock, Muck, Optimus, Nabisco, and Kato (QIC)
We warmed up vigorously
350 Burpees with some sprints of 100 yard dashes
Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan Planks
I actually had to stop during the 8:1 motivators which I decided at the wrong time in the workout. I also tend to forget how to do the box cutter exercises. I love Civilian counts and the sound of my voice when I do it. I really liked how some of you stopped at 20 with the shoulder or curls or combo portion.
Mr. Brown is one quick mother and the fact that Coors and him will be working on speed on Mondays is scary due to the fact they are mileage monsters (7 min miles). They will be ready for the Hub Half come September if they both are thinking about doing that. I know Coors said he is and last I checked that HHH was going to. I will do it just to prove a half can be done sleeping. On a serious note, you two push each other and that is great because no one else can amongst the Troy posters.
Tank, the dude is a machine and loves being naked. He should seriously think about joining the Ponderosas Sun Club down in Roselawn #NudesApoppin #RonJeremy.
Hitchcock, I’m glad you are back from Detroit music festival. You can have that Lolla shirt but’s its a XL, maybe a good nighty. Glad you are back killing it! I sad you didn’t follow through on Love, Hope, Strength to get into Lolla for free. Maybe next year we can do that together so you know the routine. Its’ a free life hack. Music=Life, love to hear your set. Hope you can join Muck and I between 820p-840p at Sip 2 Open mic tonight. Take a break during that time and let’s get jiggy with it.
Optimus, you continue to be the heart and soul of Patmos. You lead by example and we see that, Troy will continue to post on Mondays to support our A.O.s I will remember this A.O. because your temporary name and video laughter will be the number highlight of 2019 F3NWIND in my mind. Logistics, Trucking, and Love.
Nabisco, we actually had a conversation at coffeteria about how you needed no time to just excel athletically amongst us. The Pax were thinking about the initial workouts with you at Patmos and feeling like we had to tune down our workouts to not scare you off. Wow, did you fool us and you have been the Young Pacrat that has been pushing a lot of us when you post. We appreciate your presence as it is subconsciously pushing some of us to keep up with all the young guys part of F3NWIND.
Muck, you know you are a Shih brother officially now. I hope I become a Borkstrom brother in the future. Everytime you drive home passing us at Sip 2 you look really weird. Hard to explain, it’s like do you want us to wave even though we just pumped fists and said bye? You look over for some kind of another good bye as if the first wasn’t enough. Either way, just pay attention and drive home safely. Please stop asking for my haircut at Bella with BB. We can’t look the same, I will not allow it. I am looking forward to Smashing some Pumpkins next Thursday. Noel Gallagher should be ok I guess. I will try to sneak us into backstage somehow so just follow my lead.
Here’s the breakdown of our fellow Pax renaming us today:
Mr. Brown-Wiley E. Coyote, I believe Coors said it best as UPS is always trying to come up with games in his Q’s as if he was trying to kill us. He has a good basketball one coming up at OLG so you don’t want to miss that. Don’t know if this is accurate but you saw the details of the workout above didn’t you?!?!?
Hitchcock-Donnie Darko, given by Coors. This was a continuation of our movie actor conversation at coffee this week. We were trying to come up with our favorite actors/actresses and or those who we think we connect with most. I think this is very appropriate.
Coors-Tickle me Imo’s given by Kato. Being from St. Louis, you hear and know about Imo’s Pizza. This in many conversations is crazy depending on whom you speak with that are transplants from there. Imagine nacho cheese replacing pizza sauce on a pizza. Well there you go, people go ape crazy over this cracker thin pizza for some reason. Being so close to Chicago style pizza, there is no better whether you are a deep dish or thin guy as there is something out here that is great. New York Pizza is another debate I will save for another day. Did you hear Coors Elmo tickle laugh at the end of his new name? Cute, I hope you show your wife. Have fun this weekend at the Bachelor party. I suggest you go to Little Goat Café for breakfast and wake up early.
Tank-Skins (respect). Hot, Cold, Rain, you can always find a shirtless Tank. Most obvious name but I still love “Killer”
Muck-Altoids. This clever name was given by Nabisco. “Small, powerful, and white”. Nuff said
Optimus-Lot Lizard. Well, I’m scared to disclose the urban dictionary of this term in this backblast so I’ll let you look it up for yourself. I gave him the name because I know Truckers need love and I hope his company gives a daily allowance per diem to his driving employees. “Large Marge” from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure would have been a great name but I got mine out ASAP Rocky so that will have to be saved for another day.
Kato-Chinese M.C. Hammer. Given by Coors. Probably references a couple of things but for one this past winter was crazy as I literally looked like I rolled right out of bed and threw one whatever to show up at 5:30am ready to work. I have a pair of black and red Jordan basketball warmup pants that shrunk in the washer/dryer a while back. I love those things so that could have been the second reason for the name as it looks close to what M.C. Hammer might have worn in his performances.
Nabisco-The Natural. Natural athlete. Pure stud. I believe this is a baseball reference to Redford? If so, I hope you grow old graciously and get more handsome like that dude. Here are some quotes from that great movie:
Roy Hobbs:Fred, it took me 16 years to get here. You play me, and you’ll get the best I’ve got.
Pop Fisher:It’s the right thing to do.
Gus Sands:your missing the whole point kid i already didGus Sands:You’re missing the whole point kid, I already did.
Bump Bailey:[after failing to catch a fly ball] I lost it in the sun.Pop Fisher:[looks up at the cloudy sky] Blinding.
Pop Fisher:People don’t start playing ball at your age, they retire!
Roy Hobbs:Pick me out a winner Bobby.
Pop Fisher:Batting practice tomorrow, be there!Roy Hobbs:I have been. Every day.
Pop Fisher:C’mon Hobbs, knock the cover off the ball!
