    There's a ton of videos on the crossfit website, not all youtube videos are created equal.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    And all this time, I thought that big metal cage at the gym was a place for middle-aged balding guys with beer bellies to do bicep curls. You learn something new every day!

    Only if they're wearing TAP OUT shirts.

    Yep. I have a partially torn ACL and thought I couldn't do squats because it hurt too badly. Turns out I had bad form. Now I can do them no problem. No pain in my ACL at all. Often, it's a form issue.

    Tapout is so passť. My new favorite is Affliction. Because nothing says "I'm a tough guy" like having skulls and blood and brass knuckles screen printed in a variety of glittery colors.

    Don't forget to take the back-window-sized sticker off your car.

    I haven't seen those; are they Ed Hardyesque? Because nothing says I'm a tough guy with a soft spot for Picasso like Ed Hardy.

    Hey justyouraveragecavemen, I just caught your location. I'm headed back to NA on vacation in a few days, grew up in Courtland. You should probably have a drink for me in the mean time!

    Ah Courtland, the land of speed traps, I grew up across the river in Rogersville. Ain't too far from there now.

    I shall go to Wayne's or Johnny's and partake in an alcoholic beverage in honor of you, my friend.
