Ahh, the 90s. The greatest 10 years in history. It’s the decade gave us timeless treasures such as Furbies and Pogs; technological advances like CDs, DVDs, and the interwebs; entertainment like that coffee-shop sitcom that wasn’t Seinfeld but tried really hard to be; and most importantly, it was when we were introduced to true icons like Jeff Bezos, Justin Timberlake, and YHC.
This morning we began the celebration of YHC’s birthday with a tribute to the decade in which he was blessed enough to be born. Just think…only 2 months earlier and I would have been an 80s kid. Woof.
Here’s how it went. The Q queued up some quality 90s jams to direct us in our BD.
Warmup (Self Esteem-The Offspring)
Mosey to the parking lot
Circle up and…
Moroccan Night Clubs
Grab a coupon (on the lighter side) and a partner (no discretion on size)
We play a song, and rotate running to the end of the parking lot and back while your partner stays and AMRAPs an exercise. Rotate and repeat until the next song.
Gin & Juice – Boats & Canoes (I think I heard someone say these were Grouchy Frogs? Crouchy Frogs? Either way, there was copious amounts of leaning back).
What is Love – Overhead press your coupon while your partner “Chris Kattans” instead of runs. Get it? It’s the 90s version of a Cusack. Hilarious.
Jump (Kris Kross) – Bobby Hurleys. In honor of the OG hate-able Puke basketball player…and ya know…Jump
Mambo Number 5 – Curls for the Gurls
Baby Got Back – Back Squats w/ Coupon. ‘Nuff said.
Give it Away – Bus Drivers
Livin’ La Vida Loca – Skull Crushers. Not really sure what we were going for here. It just couldn’t work our legs lest we not be able to fit in leather pants.
I’ll Make Love to You – alternating Monkey Humpers and Pickle Pounders while partner runs. My attorney advises I not comment here.
Tearin’ up my heart – Rotating Merkins: Regular, Diamonds, Carolina Dry Docks. I don’t know…diamonds could kinda look like hearts, and you’re doing that boy-band dance move thing?
Tubthumping – Burpee every time you get knocked down.
It’s really hard to mess up the timing on a BD that is literally timed out by song. But, YHC proved it’s not impossible. Had to cut ‘N Sync and Chumbawamba short and still got back to the flag a minute late
Sir Elton serenaded us with Circle of Life during the COT.
Monthly BD with No Longer Bound. Talk to PitStop or join the Slack channel.
Thanks for letting me workshop this one with y’all. I hope you weren’t too offended by some of the pairings there. Also note, there were no copyrights infringed upon in the writing and executing of this BD & Backblast.
PS – is it Scratch-Off, Scratchoff, ScratchOff, or Scratch Off? Asking for a friend.
