What are the CrossFit Games?

“In implementation, this looks like sport. This is revolutionary. It's as distinctive of the program as are the movements and the charter of functionality and variance. Our workouts are competitive events.

The strength and value of CrossFit lies entirely within our dominance of other athletes. This is a truth divined through competition, not debate.”

Greg Glassman, CrossFit Co-Founder & CEO
3, 2, 1 — GO!

Dan,

Hello mate!

We are hoping to have a rough cut ready by the end of October. From that point we should be able to gage the release.

I hope.

cheers

Sevan,

Does the pillow come with sunglasses?

You ever get that press to handstand? I remember you workin' it at CrossFit Marin's gym cert.

By Dan - CrossFit Sonoma County on October 6, 2008 11:40 AM

Hey Dan,

Still working on the press.

No sunglasses, but rather a box of handy wipes. :)

So if you have a life size body pillow of me does that mean i can get my Sevan sized action figure? I would like to be able to carry you around in my pocket. It would useful for making snide remarks when i am training.
Or do Dave and Andy have exclusive rights to Pocket Sevan?
Dutch came to hang out today...he has replaced you and he earned a "Go F*ck Yourself" shirt.

By Welbourn on October 6, 2008 9:12 PM

He replaced me?

LAME!

I think CF Balboa can have more than one midget mascot.

please reconsider...

BTW - I am sure other affiliates would pick me up in a snap!

I agree there can be two "little people" per gym. Don't worry i have not given you up to free agency. i still hold your rights.
You gotta come down to earn your shirt.
