The Thang

Today we commemorated the 35th anniversary of the “Pine Tar” incident on July 24, 1983.  Because the pine tar was only supposed to be 18 inches, we were going to do 18 reps.

To warm up the legs, we first did a little F3 railroad.

Home Plate – Dips

First Base – Big Boy Situps

Second Base – Half Burpees

Third Base – Merkins

We did 18 reps at each station and then rotated.  Once the PAX had made it at least two rounds, we reconvened at the stage.

The Mendoza Line

George Brett first described the Mendoza Line as a batting average of .200 or less.  He defined this as the epitome of mediocrity and thought that no major league baseball player should hit below this mark.  We all have our own “Mendoza Line” which we should strive to be above.  Go beyond the mediocrity.  We all have the intrinsic ability to overcome mediocrity but it is a choice whether or not we use our God-given abilities to do so.
