The Thang

Beat down that walked and talked like a game.
Ball, Barrel, Tire, Man

Two teams of 5 men each. Team 1 “kicks off” to Team 2 by standing a top The Big Thank You, kicking the soccer ball down as far as possible, rolling the big blue barrel down the hill, and rolling the tire down hill until it stops. Then while Team 2 retrieves said items, Team 1 completes as many reps as possible of the following 5 exercises as a group dora: Burpees, Big Boy situps, Squats, Merkins, and Dips; Team 1 must complete 100 reps of each exercise before they can begin a 2nd set; for each rep completed (rounding down to the nearest 25) PAX takes $0.25 from Team 2’s coffee cup and puts it in Team 1’s coffee cup. Meanwhile, Team 2 must dribble ball up hill and shoot it in the soccer goal, carry the tire up the hill without it touching the ground, carry the blue barrel up the hill without it touching the ground, and carry up one of its teammates up the hill without him touching the ground. Once Team 2 accomplishes these tasks, Team 2 “kicks off” to Team 1. Rinse and Repeat for several rounds. Flutter kicks and Freddie Mercury for short Mary. Time.


Psalm 18:34, 35 especially: “…your gentleness made me great.” What if we were gentle in our interactions and instructions with our children, our wives, and clients, etc.? If God who is the strongest can be gentle and this makes us great, can we do the same?

BALL OF MAN: 3 out of 10 PAX in attendance lost a loved one within the past month including 2 PAX losing their Mom. Tough but good BOM. Prayer.


One of the teams won significantly. We don’t have to remember which one it was. The hill is still big. The tire will always roll to essentially the same spot no matter what route it rolls. Dogs like to retrieve balls more than men do and are quicker.


Not a big news day.
