While the inspiration and backdrop for this beatdown was centered around a football season, it can apply to our society in general these days. The “what have you done for me lately” or recency bias finds its way into our thinking and makes it that much easier to focus on the negatives and lose sight of the positive things in our lives. While a blown coverage on the final play of the National Championship game was a heart wrenching way to end the season I wanted to remind everyone of how the rest of the season played out to show how special it truly was. Not that it can even be compared to other trials and tribulations that people are dealing with on a daily basis, but if it can help provide even a small opening for a shift in perspective to look for the positive things that He is doing in our lives then I can consider this Q a success. Now that YHCs soapbox moment is over, here’s what went down:
SSH x 15 IC
Windmills x 15 IC
Grab a coupon from the rock pile and mosey to the turf field, carrying it high and tight, careful not to fumble it away
A look back at each game by doing a rep for each point UGA scored and sprinting down the field for the longest play by a UGA player for that particular game. Here’s what it looked like and we’ll see if anyone picks up on the subliminal message that the PAX may have failed to pick up on during all the fun.

Gas pumps x 20, vs ND 20-19, Swift run for 40 yds

But wait there’s more,
Moseyed along the scenic route back to the flag, depositing our coupons on the way with a few minutes of Mary to close things out.
Flutter kicks x 40 IC (thanks, Bloodhound!)
Iron Cross x 10? IC (thanks, Legionniare!)
Dying cockroaches x 15? IC (thanks, Babyface!)
Welcome to new FNG, Shirley, and T-claps for coming out in the brutal cold and wind to post
Praying for Floppy, Whammo and Bloodhound’s loved ones and for The Mole to make good decisions, especially as it relates to self-treatment. Also praying for those less fortunate that are fighting the elements in what has been a brutally cold winter so far.
