21 PAX (General Record) including 1 FNG and 2 second helpings. The growth of F3 Houston has been amazing since the Art of Manliness podcast. FNG Matt Copeland is DR from Chicago and is now F3-BagPipe, thanks to Proud Pappa Kickstand for bringing him out.


TAP’s went out to my SiL Vicki and her ongoing fight with breast cancer, PaceCars co-worker Rutherford recovering from surgery and The Micks neighbor Sue battling cancer.


As reported above, the podcast interview of Dredd and OBT, the founders of F3 last week on the “Art of Manliness” has really brought an uptick in FNG activity to F3 Houston. I can only hope it’s the same for the rest of the country.  Also, here are some of Duggars observations this morning>>>>

  • Vlassic doesn’t always drink pickle juice>Shhhhh
  • Gingerwood drinks pickle juice straight from the jar. All flavors
  • Disco is actually Clark Kent, the glasses are part of his disguise
  • PaceCar found out there is another AO in Houston
  • Weedwacker is back, beardless. Welcome back
  • Scalpel really likes the extra 3 minutes in the fart sack> His Kryptonite is counting down.
  • Kickstands calves are as big as Duggars thighs< *NOTE* This is Duggars Observation. ps> No bike today, is rain his Kryptonite?
  • Lil Poppi wrings out a Duggar size puddle of sweat
  • Red Bull speaks very good Spanish
  • Did you like the head fake on that last set of partner sit ups? Tried to spice things up, work outside your comfort zone and push yourself to the limit.
