The sky was dark, and a light drizzle was coming down, but Jim Myers, Tom Cali, Bob Cornwall, Marty Klanchar, Jim Moore, Judd Michael, Costas Maranas, Meira Minard, Tara Murray, Greg Luna, Michael Goldfine, John Wilcock, Mark Lee, Mike Weyandt, Lee Culver, Dana Todd, Kirk Rager, Jim Laudermilch, Ron Cunfer, Dave DeGroote, Mark Traband, and Marty Mazur knew that a hard rain was gonna fall, so they headed for the MSF Indoor Track.
It was the first time indoors this season for much of the crew, so Bwana called out the usual benchmark workout, the 3X3X300. There weren't too many tears of rage, but after a few reps, the Crew was singin' the fixin' to die blues.
Julie Grubb put the call out earlier for some "models" to show up at Beaver Stadium for a photo-op after the track workout. When Julie calls, we don't have to think twice; it was "Baby, let me follow you down". LDC made the shoot, too, fresh from Maggie's Farm. The shoot was held in the south end-zone tunnel, complete with backlighting and fog machines. The stadium itself was empty: every row was Desolation Row. But the Crew was wet, cold, and impatient standing in that tunnel, and by time the pictures were taken, we all had the subterranean homesick blues.
As for those who weren't there, well Bwana won't waste any of his precious time. Next Thursday is Thanksgiving, so there'll be no Thursday Track workout. And Bwana knows that "everybody must get stoned", but please be careful out there, and don't drive after too much turkey, let alone too many beers.
