CIRCLE OF TRUST: F3 has been a very consistent and positive part of my life since I started posting back in December. I’m a better husband, father, and man of God. I’ve made some strong friendships, and I’ve also gotten in the best shape of my life. We talk a lot about bringing FNGs and including new people, but have we named and thanked the man who invited us and put us in the EH in the first place? PAX went around the circle and said who brought them, so as to better know each man’s story. Props for Whittler and Back Pew who found F3 on their own. 

BALL OF MAN: Laces Out led us out. Thanks were said for the day, and the week that is, and any and all travel we may take for the holiday weekend.


Let’s go ahead and get it out of the way; Yes…. the FNG merlot splashed (only at the very end though!).

FNG’s last name is Rogers. His FNG story went in this order:
1) Name given
2) Grew up in Alabama; Sand Mountain
3) actually went to U of Alabama and graduated. Color me surprised
4) Electrical engineer doing electrical things for work which include electricity
5) Is Saved; (note – no snakes mentioned in the story)
6) Might(?) be related to Mr. Rogers, the famous TV show host
**Immediately after the story, fellow Roll Tide alum (Ringwald) noted the order sequence in which we were given the specifics of his story; suggested this underscores the importance to an Alabama native. To which, Laces Out replies, “Sometimes ya gotta hit rock bottom before you get saved.” nailed it

– Anything Bulgarian = Candu’s sweet-spot corner pocket

– Landslide and Skitch are really fast. REALLY fast.

– While it was completely warranted – not a single 10 count happened


Bikini Challenge is still going strong. Several guys are still in the hunt. Looks like it’ll be a 2 or 3 horse race to the finish. Aye! Keep it up guys!


– Easter this weekend
– Kickball on Saturday morning. HC now if you haven’t so that Ringwald can get the numbers figured out. Apparently it’s important.
– Burpees at the Battery for DeepDish’s Q on Saturday if kickball isn’t your thing.
