Beatdown Date: 02/25/2021
Pax: Benjamin Moore, Boba, C(L)ock Blocker, Choo-Choo, Dolly, Focker, Full House, Mr. Rogers, Panther, Wax Off
11 Pax met in The Gloom and received YHC’s third installment of an Arizona DBacks’ themed beatdown. After the initial disclaimer, we went right into our Warmarama.
DBacks Trivia with the Pax to determine number of Burpees. Thanks to Boba’s extensive knowledge of DBacks and MLB trivia, the Pax only had to do about 50 or so burpees to warm-up.
Exercises were chosen in such a way as to spell out “GO DBACKS,” and the players’ jersey numbers indicated the number of repetitions of each exercise.
Gas Pumps x 53 (1B Christian Walker #53)
Obama x 11(x4) (SP Madison Bumgartner #40 + CF Ketel Marte #4)
Derkins x 19 (2B Asdrubal Cabrera #14 + Eduardo Escobar #5)
BBSU x 31 (C Carson Kelly #18 + SS Ahmed #13)
Apollo Ohno x 34 (P Jon Duplantier #34)
Captain Therkin x 6 (LF David Peralta #6)
Kraken Burpee x 10 (Util Josh Rojas #10) – At this point, an FNG complete with a headlamp, we will call him K9, took exception to this exercise, walked into the middle of the circle and promptly urinated on the ground. Without so much as a single word or a backward glance, this FNG ran away, never to be seen again. We made it a point not to meet in the middle of that circle for the duration of the morning.
Sumo Squat x 56 (Kole Calhoun #56)
Play Ball – Don’t be a fair weather fan…be quick to show grace and patience to others, even to highly paid athletes when they play like chumps.
Good thing God isn’t a fan of us like YHC is a fan of the DBacks. Otherwise, we would never be forgiven for any of our transgressions. Fortunately we have a forgiving God that forgives us for our past, present and future sins.
