Just for Fun Friday – We’re Old Edition

As I write this, we’re somewhere east of Columbus, Ohio on our way to Pennsylvania to take on the 24 hour Lionheart Adventure Race. We will be racing as a four-man team made up of Casey, Bob, Adam, and me…

In the Masters division!

That’s right. With Casey and Adam counting down the days until they qualify for the senior citizen’s discount when they eat dinner at 4:00 PM at Ponderosa, we qualify as a “Masters” team. To qualify as a Masters team, the combined age of all team members (and Adam) must be over 135. Thanks to Casey and Adam, we easily surpassed this number.

However, Bob has really been looking a lot older lately even though he’s the baby of our team:


Wish us luck (we’re gonna need it), but please don’t tell us to break a leg. At our age, that’s just not funny.

  1. You kind of look like ‘Big Ern’ McCracken from Kingpin

  2. That picture…I have no words…If he was wearing green he’d look like the biggest leprechaun I’ve ever seen.

    If you guys are old, I guess that promotes me to den grandmother or something.

  3. Good Luck to the Masters TEAM from Team Virtus!!! We will be cheering for you all, all the way from Minnesota!!!

  4. Can the old farts conquer this?…..Depends. I know that’s an old joke. Favorite picture of Bob ever. Good luck boys.

  5. Hi Team Virtus. Nice hair, Bob. Have fun and good luck.

  6. I love the picture of Bob. The comment made me lol. Love you, Dad. Good luck.

  7. Good luck. Have fun. Next time go bald, Bob. Love ya, Dad.

  8. Dr P says that you . . BOB … has a dickhead haircut LOL ! ! !

  9. Sorry about the carmel corn not having peanuts, I’ll do better next time LUKE!!!!

    • Oh, man… I feel like a total jerk, now! I was TOTALLY kidding about the caramel corn. It was delicious. Although, it wasn’t nearly as delicious as your homemade cookies. Those were the bomb diggity!

      I can’t thank you enough for everything you sent, and you have no idea how awesome it was and how useful everything was. The Flip-Flops saved my feet after the race. In fact, you were so awesome for sending us all of the goodies, that you have now replaced Adam on the team. So welcome to Team Virtus!

      And seriously… Thank you sooooo much. You’re the best.

      • W.T.F. (and not Whiskey Tango Fox-trot) –> I didn’t get any homemade cookies or caramel corn (I even like it better w/o nuts). And Luke hogged the flip-flops the entire weekend and would not share with me.

        However, we used the marker as a team and I munched some of the other food you sent along. Thank you for all that you did for Team Virtus. I don’t think the three Missouri boys would’ve made it all the way to PA w/o your assistance.

        I look forward to meeting you on a future trip to MO.

      • Luke,just kidding about the popcorn,Bobby told me to give you a hard time,I’m looking forward to helping out again,it’s my pleasure!!!

  10. Yes…many thanks for the bags of snacks and supplies and the AMAZING cookies, as they were very much appreciated. It was a little uncanny how when we seemed to need something, we could find it in one of the bags. You are indeed awesome and very deserving of my spot on the team. I look forward to meeting you in the future.

    I can also vouch for the fact that Luke was joking about the caramel corn but it was kind of hard to understand him with the way he was shoveling it in his mouth. Thank you again for everything you did. My former (and soon to be new) teammates and I appreciate it.
