During the pavilion sequence, the playlist was nothing but covers – famous songs recorded by someone other than the original artist. In life, we often spread ourselves very thin, between home, work, wife, kids, church, hobbies, other pursuits. But the problem with this is that we leave something uncovered. If you’ve spread yourself too thin, someone else will pick up where you left off. The problem is, that this often isn’t who you’d otherwise like it to be. For instance, if you don’t pay attention to your kids, *someone* else will – and often with a negative intent. If you don’t pay attention and take care of your wife, *someone* else is going to make her feel like you should have. If you don’t cover your responsibilities at work, *someone* else is going to take your job. Build your network of other decent men, and make sure you have coverage in all the places you need. Make sure you’ve surrounded yourself with genuine helpmates, and be a genuine helper to someone else.


Whittler lamented the overall lack of Nickleback on the playlist. He also chose the slutter kicks. Creed was also mentioned. 

Prosciutto had helpful tips for newer PAX when calling cadence during Mt Squat Merkin. He also issued a challenge to YHC – message received, and accountability appreciated.

She Shed reminded us not to leave out the second set of American Hammers. Wouldn’t want to shortchange the group.

Jokes abound regarding coupon girlfriends, time spent in prison, and things looking bigger in the dark.

Peanuts was on time. Everyone was very confused.

Deer Jack has been very consistent in his first few weeks. 

Loco is fast, and wears cleats *just in case* a socc, er, futbol game breaks out.

MoneyBall posted Tuesday through Saturday. Animal.

IronButt led us out. We’re privileged to have him as our mentor Q.

If you don’t like Seether’s version of Careless Whisper, then I don’t want to be friends with you.


Dadurday in two weeks at the Landfill.
