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.

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.

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.

Ok, I went to show these to a friend today, and it seems they replaced the old files. Now they've got the audio, but the video has been clipped. Bastards! Regardless, they are still funny.

Does anyone have the originals saved?

I don't have the originals, but I'd say that the first video that's linked at the beginning of this thread still serves the intended purpose.

More Bathroom humor from Glassman up on the journal site, which includes this little gem;

Quote:
I'll tell you something way more important than the quality of your training, in terms of whether your deadlift technique is excellent or not, ok. Whether you're up to level 2 snuff, or not. And that is, simply, how clean your bathroom is.
I get (and agree with) the analogy of the video- You need to care about your place, and professionalism and pride is important. Clean bathrooms represent how much you care, and caring about your place- and your job- is important- but, dude, c'mon; you just said how clean your bathroom is is an accurate predictor of your coaching abilities. Not how successful you are as a box, or a trainer, or how much cash you make, but whether or not you're capable as a coach.

Hey, at least the overall message is right, and he looks sober- and is coherent- in this one.
