Announcements & COT: Upcoming retreat, Wrigley’s family, Sgt Rob Metz

– It was great to see Clancy back in action; Python as well!
– Clancy threatened to leave after the warm up upon learning of the Cardinals theme
– We started by partnering up in 2’s, but after the Merkins quickly decided to tackle the sets as a group of 4.
– While the Pax (cough Clancy) were less than enthusiastic to learn about Cardinals history, YHC was less than enthusiastic to learn all the reasons why Yadier Molina is not liked. Pax also tried to claim since Pujols is no longer a member of the Cardinals he shouldn’t have counted.
– Overall, these HIM’s pushed themselves and got stronger in the process. Well done men!
