One Hit Wonders

DATE: 2023-04-10
AO: Horizon-Ao
Q: Lazlo
PAX: Mr Haand, Purple Rain, 3 mile, Gherkin, Disco, Kodiak, Magoo, 2 percent FNGs: Attache
COUNT: 10
One of the beautiful things about F3 is that you never really know what you’re showing up for. It was too chilly for April, it was a day when schools were out, it was the day after Easter and spring break, but still 10 HIMs made it out in the gloom this morning. And quite possibly regretted it. Not because of the beatdown, but the mental anguish of listening to one-hit-wonders from the 80’s and 90’s. And who knew @gherkin was a pop trivia whiz. I’ll take him and @cable guy on my team for trivia night next chance I get.

WARMUP: SSH, copperhead squats, imperial walkers, cherry pickers (aka root vegetable extractor), michael phelps, moroccan night club, downward dog, fellowship lap

THE THANG: The PAX did a series of one-hit-wonder-themed exercises, each for two minutes. Bonus points (there were no actual bonuses) for naming the band, and double points for naming any other song they wrote. The routine: 1. “Jump Around” (House of Pain): Bobby Hurleys )
2. “Kung Fu Fighting” (Carl Douglas): Nolan Ryans (1 minute per side) 3. “Somebody’s Watching Me” (Rockwell): Monkey Humpers
4. “Don’t Worry Be Happy” (Bobby McFerrin): calf raises
5. “Unbelievable” (EMF): no-cheat merkins
6. “Cotton Eye Joe” (Rednex): Hillbillies
7. “Runaway Train” (Soul Asylum): bear crawl
8. “I Touch Myself” (Divinyls): WWIs
9. “Maniac” (Michael Sembello): High knees
10. “Da Butt” (E.U.): J-Lo’s
11. “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” (Dead or Alive): alternating Gorilla Walk 12. “Toy Soldiers” (Martika): duh
13. “I Know What Boys Like” (The Waitresses): burpees

MARY: ran out of time

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Boneathon, Murph

COT: Take time to appreciate the present, the people around you, and the time you have together. This might be your one hit wonder.
