Coming Down the Pipe


In an attempt to hone the skill of the NorCal CrossFit minions (and show our fitness-based superiority to the world), several events have been planned for your workout pleasure around the Bay Area. These will be team based events, so hopefully we can get our team out and about, but everyone from SFCF who would like to participate is more than welcome and encouraged to attend. The time for these events is not set yet, but most likely they will begin around 11am. Here's the schedule so far:

Sat Feb 21: CrossFit Oakland
Sat Mar 14: Diablo CrossFit
Sat Apr 4: CrossFit Santa Clara

(then a little break for the NorCal Qualifiers)

Sat May 9: CrossFit San Francisco
Sat May 30: CrossFit One World

Rock your socks off!

PS I was recently interviewed by CJ Martin of CrossFit Invictus. CJ grilled me about 'the issues'. You can read all about it here.

Adrian,

I had not realized that the issues were being so hotly debated in the CF community, but I can tell you that this is a topic of great concern to me and my family, and has been for at least the last 27 years. And, I wholeheartedly support the majority of your picks. In particular, in support of Pick Number 5, I offer into evidence Exhibits A and B.

Kind regards,

FilthyBrit

See Crossfit Oakland's website for details of next week's challenge. The workout will be posted on the 19th and will likely involve 3 person teams- 2 men 1 women ideally.

Lucas- your posts are getting out of control.

Lucas,

Don't you get it yet? I'm not impersonating you. I AM you.

Free yourself.

I think Lucas has had a few too many mushrooms from the Filthy Brit's Exhibit B. My boys were howling and now their singing the "Badger Squat" theme song.

Musk Ox. Love it.

Robert,

In case your kids are football fans, I also offer Exhibit C.

Ninjas and lasers and gold.

List incorrect, owing to absence of Sperm Whale: eats not only Giant Squid but Colossal Squid (real species!); emits loudest sound of any animal (possibly to stun prey); head full of stuff once thought to be sperm (awesome); known to destroy whaling ships; kicked the shit out of ("dismasted") Ahab and the Pequod in Greatest Novel of All Time. Boom.

Corrine said...

Ross, I will allow the use my (and Michael) trademarked "Boom!" It's pretty special, but so is your post. But not nearly as special as my unicorn box which documents the power of the Boom. I think you will appreciate that.

Flying Squirrel!

Come on!

Ross Naughton said...

C-rin, I do appreciate that, mos def! I apologize for my unauthorized use of "Boom." In my defense, I simply point to the awesomeness of the word as a stand-alone assertion. Boom!

It takes big courage to go public with your list of animals, so big props to Adrian. I heard more than a few times in the last week, "Musk Ox, is he serious?" I assured them that Adrian is mostly rational, but we have heard some good arguments for the inclusion of other animals - particularly from our contingent of Sea World and San Diego Zoo employees. This is a fierce and passionate group when it comes to debating the virtues of God's creatures. A few were quite adamant that the omission of the shark was a terrible oversight - it's one of (if not the) oldest living creatures and most scientists believe that it is the best adapted creature to it's environment. But all of their science cannot compete with K-Star's rationale that if an animal cannot take down his superstar wife, it just ain't worthy of the top five. So for now it can stay out, but please try to keep Juliet out of the water so we don't have to rearrange the top five list.
Boz, you're the man. Thanks for sharing a bit of SFCF love with our crew down here.
