17 PAX including one FNG joined me to celebrate my birthday and have a little fun with some music/movie Name That Tune. This is the 2nd time I did this, so I kept some deep cuts but tried to include more 9os movies, for the PAX not celebrating 53 years. What started as a little music trivia, soon turned into “How fast can our FNG name that tune”. More on that in a bit.
A quick mosey to the parking lot for: SSH, Imperial Walkers, Mountain Climbers, and Weed Pickers. Then all PAX picked out a nice coupon for the beatdown.
I had a playlist of 10 (11 counting Beaches, sorry Cox) songs from 80s/90s/2000s movies. While the each song played all PAX did the following exercise for the duration of the song:
Bent Over Rows
Once the exercises were established – the Name That Tune competition started.
We split into two teams. For each song the teams had a chance to name the Artist, Song, and Movie in which the song was featured. For each correct answer the losing team had to do 5 burpees.
While the losing team did their 5-15 burpees the other team did a short lap in the parking lot. When teams were finished with either the lap or burpees, they went back to the assigned exercise until the end of the song.
The trivia started out with a correct answer from No-See-Um and we were off, with team 1 handing out the burpees. The game soon turned into “Who is this new guy, Rob, and how many burpees is his team (Team 2) going to hand out. He was getting the song, artist, title within seconds, so Team One spent a large portion of the BD doing the burpees. Team One was saved for at least one song, when Cox (Team 2) received a 20 burpee penalty for knowing the Bette Midler song from Beaches.
After some fun, burpees, and a lot of mumble chatter about what to name the FNG (Pink Torpedo was mentioned after he correctly guessed Big Bottoms from Spinal Tap, but it didn’t quite seem appropriate), it was time to head back to the flag.
It was time to name our FNG. Since he performed so admirably in Name That Tune and was so fast that others hardly had a chance to shout an answer, Shazam seemed like the only choice.
Welcome Shazam! Glad to have you aboard.
Plans were discussed for getting Breakfast or Dinner on the calendar for No Longer Bound, with Red Ryder taking the reigns.
Reminder for the Blood Drive coming in March.
Reminder to get on board for Hillseeker
Prayers to Cox’s buddy Jason dealing with a legal issue but getting some assistance from Dredd.
Continued prayers for the Michigan State community as the deal with the tragedy from Monday evening.
Always a pleasure to lead. Thank you for helping celebrate my birthday. Thanks for indulging me with my Name That Tune.
