Ah a road trip to Texas. I went to grad school there. I miss it sometimes. Thanks Lis. My first gold star. Lets get a portable hoop. Game on!
The Weekend Post
Big things happen this coming week: Women’s Boot Camp starts on Tuesday at 9:30am and CrossFit Kids Watertown starts on Tues at 4:30pm.
And, now that the summer is over, we’ll be open again on Sundays from 9-11am.
Enjoy your weekend!
Lis-job well done! I was happy to read in the paper today that there were no arrests at the Beer Fest.(maybe a few out of control CFW peeps)
Oh -- and Rich, my misspelling was the result of beer and an iPhone at the BrewFest while I was making sure Jen kept her clothes on, as ordered by the Mayor of CrossFit Watertown, the Honorable Mary.
Wow, you folks are as out of control as . . . Jen! For the record, the cowboy hat is mine and Jen stole it. And if we ever lose it, there's going to be one hell of a roadtrip to the finest truckstop in Abilene, Texas to get another one. And Mike gets a gold star for his essay on baseball! Love it! I think baseball is great and soccer bores me to tears. But basketball is the greatest sport of all time. My dream would be to have a basketball hoop in the parking lot at CFW so we could play before and after class. If I had a pillow, a basketball, and a coffee maker, I'm not sure I would need anything else in life. And if you ever want to see Mary riled up, watch UConn women's basketball with her . . .
That WOD kicked my ass! Thanks Melis for making me do it! Becky, Soon you'll see the Cowboy hat in a WOD! Whoot!
That's right Rich. Throw in some mud or jello and we got ourselves a party! Jen is awesome. I'll try that WOD carrying Jen. No jeans though.
You know why else Jen is awesome...Besides using the 24 inch box, she was carrying 40lb dumbbells and doing the WOD in jeans.... You rock Jen! I wanna see a wod in the cowboy hat! And Good Luck tomorrow morning Sue!! You are an inspiration to us all!
New York Yankee Baseball, beer, female rear naked choke holds??? No wonder I keep coming back to CFW. BTW, MOP is still the biggest motivator. Lis, "THE" not "rhe" its not often I can catch one of those!!! Kirk, I hope all this Yankee talk doesn't upset you. Dave K., Put you're money on Jeter, No question about it.
Well that handle makes some sense. She motivates me more than she hurts me. In Crossfit I can only hurt myself. She motivates me to cause myself pain.
@Mike#3 Lis's handle is MOP which used to stand for mistress of pain, but it can also stand for Mary O. Poppins or may only play...Kids, Beer, Crossfit--these are a few of my favorite things (damn you Mary Poppins) Ok, tonight will be supercalafragalisticexpialidotious...
I love baseball and beer. If I didn't have kids those would be my two favorite things. I'm a Yankee fan but this is not a world series team. Aging free agents stars piling up statistics does not make a TEAM. Pitching, defense and small ball wins championships. You know... the way they played from 1995-20001. When you rely on the home-run, you are screwed. Jeter will bat .400 in the playoffs and run through walls to win and AROID will bat .180 with 5 meaningless home-runs. Jeter also won't have a shot at an MVP... again. His numbers this year smoke Pedroia's from last year . If you go through Jeter's stats he has bested Pedroia's numbers in all but 3 or 4 years of his career. Has there ever been a more valuable player to his team? He still gets screwed every year. Lis: You opened a huge can of worms. I could chat baseball for ever. Right now baseball makes me angry. These overpaid, cheating pu!$#s are ruining my game. They are ruining the game that defined America and now more kids play soccer. I'd rather watch paint dry on a 40 degree humid day.I could talk about that forever. Know even knows what baseball is any more. Hopefully you are no longer envisioning Princess and Rockstar grappling for submission holds. How come you don't have a nickname? I have to go outside and play ball with my kid. That's what baseball is about.
Okay, Mike just mentioned "rear naked chokes" and Rockstar and Princess. We all need to start talking about rhe Yankees or beer or something
Princess round 1 by knockout. Rear naked chokes seem far too technical for these two. Rockstars act tough on stage but we all know they can't fight.
While you guys were farting around on the blog, Bary, Becky, Ray Ray, A new person whose name escapes me, Jen and I rocked a "Melissa Metcon." You know the kind, the kind that you walk in and are like, "why did I come here today?" This is going to SUCK. Well, everyone rocked it out today. It was awesome, thanks Melissa. Jen and Barry are my heros. How Jen was able to do 24" box jumps after the weighted walking lunges was beyond me. My legs did not want to leave the earth. Anyway, great WOD today. Great work everyone who was there. You were all very inspiring and helped me get through that WOD. Today is proof positive that I need the peer pressure to finish, otherwise, I would have been on the couch after the second round. Thanks everyone for being there at 8. As for the Princess vs the Rockstar pay per view, my money would be on the Princess. Those Puerto Ricans are tough, but the Brazilians are tricky and sneaky. It would be a good fight, would go 2 1/2 - 2 7/8ths rounds, but Princess would get a rear naked choke for the submission. Great job today again to everyone, and I can't wait for my church to open back up next Sunday. Cheers, David
Lol...I kinda like being the princess...makes me seem cute, nice, delicate, fragile...should I keeo going????
viv... i mean princess... must be really bored at work. figures i get on the web site and im sitting down. no one ever group me in as a princess again.
Well, that's 15, actually 16 w/ this post...I'll check in in a few to see what goes on in the CF world.....
Kinda blows chatting w/ yourself...not much fun anymore....***chuckle subsides, smerk slowly fades***
