POINTS SPIRIT OF THE OPEN: #RespectYourElders
Even though the Open is “technically” a competition, it’s all about the fun factor. Mad props to Mike. D rolling in on a WHEELCHAIR and to the old folks for brining their old age to new levels. From Coach Brian’s recruitment video (check it out HERE if you haven’t already!) to cobbling around on canes and walkers, this team knows how to be OLD.
5 POINTS BEST TEAM PHOTO: The Mighty Murphin Power Lifters AND Covies Never Say Die!
This photo is a SHARED team effort. The Mighty Murphin Power Lifters win for the photo, but ONLY because of Ryan W’s comment of “A bunch of millennials standing around waiting for someone to tell them what to do…”. So, we will split the points between the two teams. That also feels very “millenial”. Everyone gets a blue ribbon!
5 POINTS BEST SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE: Covies Never Say Die
Once again, Covies Never Say Die win the prize. Not only is their presence ubiquitous, it’s perfect meme application every time…
5 POINTS MOST INSPRING PERFORMANCE BY AN INDIVIDUAL: #RespectYourEldersFor those of you who don’t realize that people do the WOD BEFORE Friday Night Lights, you probably missed an amazing performance by Brent L. He showed up on Friday to the Noon class, and as always, was doubting himself and his ability. He was prepared to “scale the scale” with 20lb dumbbells (vs. 35s). He said, “I just can’t do 35. No way.”. Joe Tito, Brent’s fellow nooner who had done the workout earlier, wasn’t going to let that happen. He took Brent’s 20’s and moved them to the other end of the 25 foot lane and said, “if you want the 20’s, go get them”. He handed Brent the 35s and told him to lunge to the 35s to get them. And he did. And he lunged back. And never looked twice at the 20’s again. AMAZING.
