I know why I seldom drink. I never liked the hangover. I have a hangover of a different type today…a football hangover. After watching a slo-mo train wreck for over three hours, interrupted only by a constant barrage of inane commercials, I am lamenting the demise of yet another playoff run by sloppy and poor play by the Green Bay Packers capped by a Brett Favre interception in overtime, in a near repeat of the now infamous “Fourth and twenty six” play and a Favre pick.
The Pack was a solid pick to advance to the Super Bowl, but the G-men from the Meadowlands had other ideas and played like they wanted it more and were thusly rewarded. If it sounds like I blame Brett, well not really. It was a team effort of errors.I’ll shake this off pretty fast though, but today, I get through the “hangover”.
So, my “Hangover WOD” started off by sets of
rope jumping, 100/100/116/158/120 and then 3 rounds of the Crossfit warm-up and the Burgener warm-up.
The main event was some practice with the snatch using a stick, an empty bar, and light weight at 60% of my last reported 1RM. 45/55/65/65/65.
The session went well and should be enough to shake off the remnants of my disappointment. Next begins the annual vigil of the Packer faithful waiting to find out if Brett Favre returns for another season. (I say Yes).
