This video only re-enforces the Gin Story. Plus, he was reported being in the same inebriated-looking capacity during the CF101 in Seattle a few months ago.

I'm surprised no one has made a "Pirates of the Caribbean" joke yet.

"Why is the gin gone?"
"One: because it is a *vile* drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels. Two: the RRG scam has failed, the affiliates didn't fall for it."
"But why is the gin gone?"

I can't believe that video is up for public viewing. I saw it posted at igx a few days ago. And now on multiple blogs. I think one of the igx'ers said he was feeling zero pain at the games when he saw him there. I'd think that between the appearance of being innebriated as well as grossly out of shape that the cult would catch on.

I saw this petition in the first few days of its existence, and I refused to sign it. Without Couch, Shave, and Pudding, where would this thing be?

Seriously. You can't enjoy a train wreck if it stays on the rails.

I train in the puke zone because I do martial arts, not so I can go around and act macho like some crossfitters Ive met.

A couple weeks ago I almost had to fight a pitbull mix and another dog that almost attacked my Mom and I.

There's a time and a place for fighting. A gym is not the place and just isn't worth it.

Defending my Mom is.

That was my first instinct.

You know us BJJ guys love to fall on our backs and take it to the ground.
