The title of this q came from an anecdote shared by my 19 year old son who took me to a Nick Cave concert last spring in Asheville. Cave , a spry sexagenarian ( yeah you can call all your 60 year old friends that ) boldly crowd-surfed several times that night and my son laughed as he recounted Nick diving onto him with wild abandon, leading my son to pat Nick’s bottom in encouragement as he rode the human wave across the theater. “Well- ” I said thoughtfully , ” I’m sure he was ass- king for it”.
The Q: Niles
The pax: Minecraft tiny dancer double check striker Milton wreck-it Ralph Mayhem gravity bath salts kung fu panda fire Marshall Bill Harvahd busted grill seahorse the Adjuster

Then off to the side of the tennis courts to find a large boulder .
Line up with a partner on the grassy knoll for Jacob’s ladder. Run with your boulder to the retaining wall , partner runs backwards. Wall jumps at the retaining wall alternating with v ups at the lower end.
Partipants encouraged to randomly yell “who’s ass-king for it ” and partners encouraged to respond loudly ” I’m ass-king for it”. Cobains to the sensitive of ears and the under 17.
Broga – locust pose, bow pose, three rounds of 10 count bridge or wheel pose .
Then mosey to the tennis courts.
Kettle bell swings with boulder, run to the other end of the tennis court for balls to the wall 30 count and run back.
Broadjump Burpee’s to the halfway point and lunge walk back with boulders , alternating the boulder carrying hand in order to avoid being ass-ymmetric or left behind.
Return the Boulder and mosey to the parking lot for Mary led by Stryker- (t claps young dude) and then a mosey/Sprint and some more broga led by tiny dancer.
