I almost started a new thread to compile these videos.

Here's the newest one: http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/G...nalPreview.wmv

Wow. I can barely understand him. And I don't mean from a technical sense.

The way he's wiping his nose and consistently reaching for the knob to steady himself is indicative of something....I'm not sure what.

These are really the best.

Well, now I feel bad about laughing at him, because what if he has some sort of degenerative disease? There are several that could fit the bill.

Around here it's called "The Vodka Flu".

I hear there's variants out west, at least one is the Gin Flu.

I had to start a new thread for these. You don't hide the gold bullion amidst the less precious clutter. I'm 50/50 on whether to sticky this stuff.

Despite Irongarm's best efforts, nothing is more damaging to CF than its own videos.

Can somebody subtitle this for me? I'm a little rusty on my Drunkenese.

Steve Shafley 03-04-2010 10:26 AM

I find it ironic that I was banned for several years, yet my postcount is close to Gant's.

Jesus. I might need an intervention here.

Derek Weaver 03-04-2010 10:45 AM

Thanks for doing the work for me Gant.

I'll try and post a manuscript. I've only been out of college a couple of years and am still proficient in Drunkenese, maybe not fluent.

This transcript was PM'd to me by one of the faithful. (It is also posted elsewhere). Thanks!


Tony: Can you explain a little bit of what is that mechanism going on where we push and correct and hold back . . .

Couch: Itís a thresh . . . itís a threshold phenomena asmuchasicannahoho . . . overload concept forozo those old Weider d-d-days fans you know Muscle and Fitness . . .um I Iím a Iím taking a physiological parameter and Iím stressing it . . and uh its . . its . . control. And both neurologically and muscularly thereís an adaptation and response to that and its increased control at a at a at a reduced or same intensity. Its uh its uh at the heart too of every human endeavor where uh velocity is a critical complement, of course speed and movement is vital. Whether you are talking about thoracic surgery or typing or uh any any motor sport, you know, where going fast without crashing is inherently valuable. What you find is a tension between error and movement and the uh much uh prized uh velocity.

i've got no dog in this fight, but my god, what on earth does that mean? you could easily put that in Websters as the definition of psychobabble. listening to him ramble and spout on CF Radio recently definitely put me off of ever vesting much into what GG had to say.
