THE THANG: PAX gathered around the circle at the 50 yard line to learn the true meaning of Festivus: a non denominational holiday filled with one sided ridicule and mindless physical tests of strength. Also, there was an aluminum pole.

The tradition of Festivus began with the Airing of Grievances:
The QIC had a lot of problems with a select few PAX, and now they were going to hear about it! The PAX assumed the forward leaning rest position while QIC barked the ways in which they had disappointed him over the past year. After each name was read, and an appropriate insult hurled, a merkin was performed.

As Festivus rolled on, we came to the Feats of Strength:
PAX lined up in pairs on the 50 yard line. Each team took turns carrying the festivus pole to the goal line while the other team member did a high knee, jubilant skip alongside of him. Switching positions at the goal line. The remaining PAX performed a number of exercises while waiting their turns: Star Jumps, LBC’s, Heisman Shuffle, “Where am I’s”, Fast Feet/Get Downs, Bonnie Blair’s, Break Dancers, Jump Squats
The PAX then traveled to the pull up bars. Each PAX performed 10 pull ups while the remaining group observed, fondly, and performed the following exercises while awaiting their turn: Toe Taps, Peter Parkers, Dips, Freddie Mercury’s
Short mosey to the bike racks, aka Bear Crawl arches where we…well….Bear crawled under the bike racks. Then some Australian push ups. Mosey to the other side of the school to another set of bike racks. Paired up again for some Bike rack dips while alternating PAX performed shoulder taps. MARY: Flutter kicks, Nolan Ryans
