“Andrew - snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug...,
There's no escape!”
days into 'Billy's Boot Camp' a Red eyed early morning training
session at ProKick. Sorry, it should read 'Red Faced Day' as the
shocker of the week came when Amateur world champion Andrew Grimason
didn't turn up for the 6.30am morning run.
Andrew opted for the easy option - staying between the sheets in
his warm bed....Well that's what he thought as he felt all snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug
in never never land!
Jealous Teams mates led by title
contender Ian Young along with one of Ireland's top MC's Stephen
'Ladies & Gentlemen' Weatherup, BOTH decided that the whole
team would embarrass Andrew by rapping him up and conducting a training
session on his door step. Unfortunately, there were no signs of
life at the Grimason household even though the lights were on, no
one seemed home, however a top fighter who wants to remain anonymous
said: "I thought I saw Andy peeping through the blinds".
This was an unconfirmed sighting.
Meanwhile back at the gym the Whole squad (expect BIG Steve, that's
another story!) were in the middle of a circuit after their longest
run of the week - a 10 miler.
The 'Grim-Creeper' slipped into the gym. Team captain, Veteran 63
year-old Mr Macartney (Who by-the-way is always first at the gym
every morning at 5.45) took it upon himself to send the 21 year-old
Grimason on his own run. Mr Desi Macartney said, "We all would
like to sleep on in the morning but in fairness to Andrew who is
normally here on time, he must understand that to get to the top
and stay there - fighters must go that extra mile and moreover there
is no 'i' in TEAM!" He went on to say, " I'll 'Name and
Shame' any of the fighters that say they will be there and don't
Last run of the week is the same time tomorrow Saturday
All Prokick fighter are expected to attend tomorrow, however, if
any of the fighters who have not missed any days this week, you
all can have Saturday morning off!
Any other ProKickies up for a challenge on Saturday morning club?
