Fatigue Makes Cowards
of Us All (Espada)
TO READ THE HAPPENINGS AT LA FLOR
NIGHT 3: A HOLLY, (NOT SO
Holly betrayed Wendy...and
she needs to rethink her strategy. Yeah, she feels a bit bad for
the betrayal but...c'mon...this is "Survivor"! Looking
out for #1 is the main goal now...and she's ready to prove she can
kick some ass!
DAY 4: RALLY ROUND THE COACH
Now it seems Marty is
having trouble falling asleep as well...and "Coach" Jimmy
Johnson seems to be high ruler over the daily "morning meeting".
They need to re-arrange the bamboo of their sleeping "mat",
maybe fix the roof a bit. Dan thinks about going fishing...but Tyrone
does his best Kanye West impersonation, interrupts and tries to
get back to the shelter. Jimmy T's not too happy with his namesake
taking over...but Marty thinks it'll help by putting the target
on Coach's backside.
Jill tries some escargot
au natural...and Holly watches her face and decides they're inedible.
She yells at the others when Jill offers the snails and the tribe
thinks she's gone bat-crap insane. When Holly HEARS Dan actually
calling her that, she decides that the b*tch needs payback. So,
she takes Dan's alligator shoes, fills them with sand and then lets
them slip into the water far from camp.
DAY 5: GATOR STOMP
So...where're Dan's $1600
alligator shoes? Well, Holly decides this behavior was NOT her and
confessed to the tribe. Everyone seems to foirgive her...save Dan.
"If she were a guy, I would've knocked her right out,"
says the Brooklyn-born dude. She claims that she will play this
game "100 percent" with "honesty and dignity"
from here on...but it's obvious she looks drained.
Holly talks to Coach and
thinks that five days on the island is more than enough. She can't
hack the pyschological trauma. Coach comforts her and says that
she IS needed (for now, anyway) in the tribe. Holly decides to think
of the tribe and hang in there.
MUD, HAY, SHIELDS...AND A LOTTA BALLS
Another "haka" as
the "Younger Tribe" sees us sans Wendy.
Four tribers will crawl
through the mud and then dig in haystacks for a wrapped ball and
place it on a mat. Once four balls are matted, three others will
transfer one ball at a time via shields into a barrel. First tribe
to get four balls in their barrel not only gets the Immunity Idol
but gets a choice between a tarp and rope...or fishing gear like
what La Flor has.
And today's "power"
of the Medallion of Power? One ball in barrel to start. Well, hell,
we GOTTA take THAT one. We give the Medallion to the juniors, Uncle
Jeff puts one ball in our barrel, we sit Dan out from the mud-and-hay-dive
and we prep to go. Coach, Holly and Jane will dive; Jimmy T, Marty
and Tyrone will shield, Jill will start the ball rally and Yve will
toss back any that don't make it in the barrel.
You'd never know Jimmy
Johnson's days as a Razorback DL were 46 years ago the way he dives
into the mud and struggls under the net. The "tarring"
is followed by the "feathering" as he digs into the haystack.
We find our first...or, sorry, our SECOND ball first, but La Flur's
right behind. Jane struggles a bit finding the ball and Holly does
likewise. As such, La Flur has four balls before Holly finally finds
our last one. Now it's time for "shields up, captain".
From Jill...to Marty...to
Jimmy T...to Tyrone...woops. Yve rolls it back to Jill...but La
Flur's already tied it up...and then overtakes us. Ut oh. Jill...Marty...
Jimmy slips but it bounces off the middle barrel to...Tyrone...BARREL!
Tie game. Benry's having issues getting the third ball in. Espada's
smooth as silk getting THEIR third in. Both balls get to the last
Benry hits the rim...but
Tyrone is dead-on! ESPADA WINS REWARD AND IMMUNITY! OLD SCHOOL RULES!
We take the conquistador
bust...we take the fishing gear...and we take off happy as ever,
leaving a dispondant La Flur in our wake.
DAY 6: IDOL HUNTING
Yeah, things are hap-hap-happy
at Espada (particularly Holly)...until we open up our fishing gear.
It seems we have a clue to a secret Immunity Idol (just like La
Flur did last time). Unlike the younger girls, we figure ours out
pretty quick thanks to Jimmy T: "15 yards west of the Tree-Man".
Everyone starts digging...but Jill figures that it's not Tree-MAN...it's
Tree-MALE...or Tree-Mail! She tells Dan and Marty about it. They
head to the Tree-Mail spot and Marty starts digging briskly.
After a while, Dan abandons
the search and Jill joins Marty. She takes a careful look at things...and
points to the EXACT SPOT of the Idol in a burlap pouch. Marty claims
this to be THEIR Idol, not just his.
On top of that, we get
to sit back while La Flur implodes...but I'll let Chico handle THAT
