For Whom The Bell Tolls – by Coach Patrick

Best get excited my Recursive people, it’s a straight up Dr. Dre ring ding dong ring a ding ding dong kind of moment. You might’ve noticed we’ve got a new PR bell hanging up, waiting for the chimes of improvement to rain down upon us from the heavens.
Inscribed on the bell is “Better Than Yesterday” and it symbolizes a whole smorgasbord of things. It represents celebrating and honoring your hard work, day in and out, days where you brought it, days where you didn’t want to go but showed up anyway, days where you were frustrated by where you were, days where you killed it and knew it, and everything in between.

It also represents strength of yourself and the strength of community, ringing that beast isn’t a small feat or a private ceremony, it is owning your dedication and it is shared amongst those fighting along side you, those who want the very best for you just as much as you do.

So it doesn’t matter if you are a single strike timid bell ringer or a farmhand chow time multi-striker or even a Thor’s hammer power ringer… what matters is you recognize what ringing that bell means to you and everyone else who hears it. It is purpose, community pride, tradition, and celebration. I, for one, can’t wait to hear you ring ding dong ring a ding ding dong. Happy WODing you beautiful badasses!
Wait wait wait, there’s more…!? Speaking of pride and tradition… we simply can’t boringly call it the PR bell, I yawn just saying it. So here’s the deal, the winning team of the Intramural Open gets the naming rights to the bell. Anything from Chauncey to The Incredible Bell of Magnanimous Magnitude, it shall forever be known and referred to whatever the winning team deems a perfect fit for the Recursive PR bell, a fixture of all future athletes to strike a chord with this year’s sweat and work poured into the Open.

Community pride and tradition, nailed it, stuck the landing, now go earn some bell strikes and naming bell rights!
