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.

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.

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.
