If you’ll permit me, I’m going to get sappy for a minute. I had a lot of reasons that I wanted to hold the Groomsman Games. The competition was as great, as expected. The shit-talking was epic and endless (as you can tell from the recaps and the comments, we’ll get a lot of milage out of this). However, the number one reason that I wanted to host the Games was the company. These guys have been the best of friends and it didn’t feel quite right to shortchange any of them by simply elevating one and putting the rest underneath him. Instead, the Games gave us an opportunity to share some really great times with some great friends and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Alright, that’s enough sap for one recap. Below you will find the Groomsman Games recap in superlative form:
When we first heard of the Man of the Year challenge we were impressed by the creator’s innovation and their implementation. We loved the whole idea of the Man of the Year as well as several of their individual events. One event piqued our interest more than the rest though: retaking the SATs. Now, none of us will ever be confused with great minds like Einstein or Bill Nye but our group is collectively much smarter than we are athletic*.
*That’s damning with feint praise if I’ve ever heard it.
I’m missing three weddings in the next 6 months. Not just any weddings. These are weddings I actually care about. I’m not talking about, oh yah I sorta know you, and you’re throwing a big ass wedding so I’m getting an invite, I’m talking about legitimate people who matter to me. These are all the things I’m missing because I’m deployed.
