Oh, I can hear you. Great. Thank you. Two kids, Gary.

Gary Roberts (00:20):

Yeah. Yeah. Since, uh, Hey Sev Metin I wanna thank you for, uh, I wouldn’t have these little kids right here if it wasn’t for you, you know that, right?

Sevan Matossian (00:30):

Because I carried them for you because of my, my eggs, or

Gary Roberts (00:34):

You just changed my life in more ways than one, not just CrossFit.

Sevan Matossian (00:38):

Awesome, buddy. Well, I’m glad, I’m glad that you have two wonderful. Oh, I see someone doing pull ups, uh, through your back window. Where are you?

Gary Roberts (00:45):

I’m at, uh, Travis Meads, iron valley CrossFit in Oregon city. Getting ready to start a class in 20 minutes.

Sevan Matossian (00:51):

Okay. Listen to everyone. If you do not know who Gary Roberts is. Gary Roberts is the, uh, star of killing the Fatman season one in season two, the two most popular shows series in the history of CrossFit media, outside of games, content where they’re killing the fat man series millions and millions and millions and millions of views. But more importantly, who cares about the views? These shows changed people’s lives. Tens of thousands of people saw Gary Roberts journey, his weight loss journey. And, uh, and, and they watched him turn his life around. He did it once he gained some weight back, he did it twice. This is killing the fat man. Season three is being filmed. Now we are working with, uh, California hormones, CA hormones.com and Gary Roberts after taking a year. How long did you take off from working out Gary?

Gary Roberts (01:42):

A pandemic? The pandemic.

Sevan Matossian (01:45):

So you had two years, two years?

Gary Roberts (01:48):

Yeah. I’m a walking cliche, bro.

Sevan Matossian (01:50):

And, and how, and how much weight did you put on in those two years?

Gary Roberts (01:54):

Uh, my body likes to gain about 50 pounds.

Sevan Matossian (01:57):

And, and, and so, and so what, what do you, what did you weigh, uh, you know, a couple weeks ago when you first started on this journey? Three weeks ago?

Gary Roberts (02:04):

Uh, 2 55, 2 55.

Sevan Matossian (02:07):

And what’s the most you’ve ever weighed in your life?

Gary Roberts (02:10):

2 68.

Sevan Matossian (02:11):

Okay. So you got back up there again?

Gary Roberts (02:15):

Uh, yeah. Yeah. I’m sorry, man. I’m sorry. I let you down. I keep letting down the seven Atian we changing.

Sevan Matossian (02:21):

It took me 75 times to, uh, quit smoking, trying to quit smoke. Um, so, so now we are filming, uh, we are filming season three of killing the fat man, the California hormones edition, California hormones edition, uh, season three. And about three weeks ago you started the, uh, testosterone replacement therapy, correct?

Gary Roberts (02:43):

Yes, sir. Yes,

Sevan Matossian (02:44):

Sir. And about, and about four weeks ago you started working out at CrossFit again?

Gary Roberts (02:49):

Uh, yes, sir. Five weeks.

Sevan Matossian (02:51):

Five weeks. And do you feel the best you felt in two years?

Gary Roberts (02:56):

Oh, most definitely. I’m I’m back, man. I burst to feeling like I could take on the world. I don’t know why I need you to come in my life to stop the roller coaster of snowball fat, rolling down the hill. But thank you again, reminding me,

Sevan Matossian (03:16):

Tell me about, um, getting on testosterone replacement therapy. How did that work? I know I gave you a call and then after I gave you a call and put you in contact with California hormones, what did you do?

Gary Roberts (03:25):

Um, basically they, I came out, uh, they did a blood test. They got all my blood work and uh, discovered my testosterone as low. So they brought me up to par with some of the stuff and, uh, you know, it’s aiding in me getting my life back. It’s a little bit more difficult at 49 years old.

Sevan Matossian (03:43):

When do you turn 50?

Gary Roberts (03:45):

Uh, November.

Sevan Matossian (03:47):

Awesome. And, and what’s more difficult about it?

Gary Roberts (03:50):

I mean, ire, I, I, I can feel my brain is still young, but the joints are starting to be more difficult, uh, to move and recovery is more difficult. It’s just harder to move. Flexibility has gone downhill, uh, but I can slowly feel, feel the, the machine’s part starting to be well oiled and I’m moving, moving better. Uh, so thankful,

Sevan Matossian (04:19):

Uh, Kenneth DEAP says Gary looks noticeably better since the last time he was on Gary in a week. I wanna schedule you for a full interview. I’m super stoked. You’re back in the gym. I’m super stoked. You’re working with California hormones, um, and I’m really excited for, uh, season three, killing the fat man. You’re one month into shooting and, uh, let’s talk in a couple weeks. We’ll do we’ll sit down and talk for two hours.

Gary Roberts (04:40):

Thank you. Sev

Sevan Matossian (04:42):

Love you, buddy. Chow. Shout

Gary Roberts (04:44):

Iron valley CrossFit. Woo.

Sevan Matossian (04:49):

Thank you. Taylor self for patiently waiting. Gary. What, what a fucking stud I’m so stoked that, uh, he’s doing that. I gotta, I gotta bring him on at least, at least, at least once a day from here on out. It’s it’s a good little, uh, kick O

SMTP (05:06):

Someone said what the show about killing.

Sevan Matossian (05:13):

I’m only gonna take this call because it’s from the United Kingdom. How can I help you? And your king and queen,

Mattew Souza (05:23):

Hey, Devon. It’s McLaughlin’s Lin

Sevan Matossian (05:29):

McLaughlin McLaughlin. Hi.

Mattew Souza (05:35):

So what I highlight was, and those are right beside each killer and it didn’t cause they got the same penalty except Lazar was later across the finish line because he tried to correct his mistake. That’s a bit sucky, isn’t it? Yep. Spencer is higher in the leader cause he just went to,

Sevan Matossian (06:03):

Do you want me to translate what he saying? Taylor, do you want me to translate that shit to English for you? <laugh>

SMTP (06:09):

Saxon. Is he talking about Saxon versus Spencer?

Sevan Matossian (06:13):

Yeah. Laar and Spencer. He’s basically saying that Laars time should basically be the same as Spencers, but because he tried to go back out on the field and fix his shit. He’s being punished. Yeah. Clive. We already know that we already talked about that, duh.

Mattew Souza (06:26):

Sorry. It’s hard to keep off with your like 30 hours of this week. I tried to listen to most

Sevan Matossian (06:33):

You’re too busy making money and donating it. I’ll give you, I give you a pass.

Mattew Souza (06:38):

<laugh> Hey, love the show. Thank you. Doing the good work.

Sevan Matossian (06:41):

Thanks dude. I love your support. Thanks man.

SMTP (06:44):

People in the comments are freaking out about Nick Matthews crossovers not being doubles. And I believe his rope was passing under the feet. Two time. The issue with other athletes is they were trying to do a double under and then a crossover like a double then cross Nick Matthews rope was passing under the feet. Both times he was just crossing the arm, pass on cross pass, cross pass, uncross pass. So he just knew how to do them. And the other athletes didn’t

Sevan Matossian (07:13):

He knew how to string them together.

SMTP (07:15):

He knew how to do them and other athletes. Didn’t other athletes were trying to do double unders into the crossover. And they’re just, that’s just not how you started you cross uncross, cross uncross.

Sevan Matossian (07:26):

Well, in defense of those other a, um, those other athletes, when I first started doing double unders, I did one single, uh, I did two singles, one double, two singles, one double. And I think that’s what Danielle Brando was doing. She was doing a jump crossover. Oh. So, so you could find your rhythm because you didn’t have to do them unbroken. Go ahead Taylor.

SMTP (07:44):

Well, but what I think you’re right. And what I think they should have done is tried to do singles into the crossover. Not double unders into the crossover. You like, I like never doing triple unders. Have I tried to go from double unders into triple

Sevan Matossian (07:56):

Unders? I just, I see what you mean.

SMTP (07:58):


Sevan Matossian (07:58):

Exactly. I see what you mean. Okay.

SMTP (07:59):

Basically someone goes, basically he was smart. Basically. He’s done them before. And these other athletes

Sevan Matossian (08:04):

Had the, the, the, the variety of, uh, single unders I saw was fucking, it became comical. Yeah. It became fricking comical. Like I, I mean, I’m no expert at double unders I’m far from an expert. Like I don’t, I don’t even know if I don’t think I can string 50 together on a moment’s notice, but I can do single unders all day. And it’s just CR and I, and mine look, don’t look anything like theirs. They’re just smooth. Do

SMTP (08:31):

I can’t, I can’t send this video because it’s someone who sent it to me, but I’m gonna face it on the camera and go and slowmo. You can see the rope passes under twice 1, 1, 2, 2. Yeah, one, two. Thank you Bo for sending me that.

Sevan Matossian (08:47):

Oh, you a ho uh, Danielle did it the same way Nick Matthew did, but her judge kept no repping her. No shit. I did Jamal. I, I did see her fighting with her judge. So you’re saying that when she started stringing him together, her ref, uh, screwed, um, before we get to just all the fun stuff, uh, I, I wanna say, I wanna go through some of the things here. Uh, before, before we came on, we saw CF Oslo, uh, in the team competition. Uh, one it’s added some drama, but mayhem took second and third. We saw rich Frings team and Angelo’s team across second and third. Uh, we did see when the, uh, ladies went, uh, I think this is Tia’s lowest standing, right? At worst event in the history of the cross games. Is that true? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone?

SMTP (09:38):

No. It’s her second Tia’s

Sevan Matossian (09:40):

Yeah. Second one. Yeah.

SMTP (09:41):

Her second was her first was, uh, heavy DT in 2015 or 2014

Sevan Matossian (09:45):

When it’s just me and you on the air. We have to both listen. Someone, even can’t even reading the comments <laugh> got. Uh, um, so, uh, and, and Laura choked on the pistols?

SMTP (09:55):

No, she had a lot of trips on the jump rope. She had a lot of trips on the singles and a lot of trips on the double unders

Sevan Matossian (10:02):

A and on the pistols

SMTP (10:03):

That was first round, but she made it through. And then on the second round, she didn’t make it through cuz you tripped on the double unders like four times,

Sevan Matossian (10:09):

Uh, Emma Lawson had a, uh, handstand error and then a fall but event in the second round. But eventually she, she went on to win that. Right?

SMTP (10:19):

Mal did mal I thought mal won.

Sevan Matossian (10:22):

Was it mal who ended up winning that event? Can we see the leaderboard? There we go.

SMTP (10:27):

Danielle won the event. There you go. Yeah, she won the event. Um,

Sevan Matossian (10:32):

Oh, Rebecca took second. Emma Lawson took third. Wow. Okay.

SMTP (10:39):


Sevan Matossian (10:41):

Incredible and re Rebecca fus took has a second. Now at the CrossFit games,

SMTP (10:47):

A 33rd and a second,

Sevan Matossian (10:49):

Uh, a gymnast from the, uh, for 13 years she was a gymnast and it paid off. Okay. Uh, this

SMTP (10:59):

Wow. Who is talked about this I’m Emma Lawson in first place. Wow. She’s gonna be a rookie rookie going into, uh, Thursday wearing the red and white

Sevan Matossian (11:08):

Where’s Tia.

SMTP (11:10):

That’s a great question for is ninth overall. Wow. Okay. It’s not crazy, but that’s also, you’re not used to seeing her, not wearing leader Jersey.

Sevan Matossian (11:21):

The ladies we’re switching ropes for doing double unders. Uh, they look goofy doing the singles when Tia, oh, you know what I noticed when Tia’s back there in the corral, everyone knows where she’s at. Like they try to act like they’re not staring at her, but she was like on one side of ma O’Brien and then she walked behind her to the other and you could see ma O’Brien’s eyes go like this. Like, you know what I mean? You know, like when someone walks behind you and you wonder where they’re going, but you don’t wanna turn your head and look.

SMTP (11:45):

So you’re swimming with the shark and you wanna know where the shark’s at at all times?

Sevan Matossian (11:47):

Yes. Yes. Uh, there were, there were, there were four, there were four things I felt like they were introduced, uh, new and I think it’s a lot. And I think maybe it’s too many, but I wanna tell you what the four R and tell me if you think I’m outta my mind, because one of them you might disagree with is not being a new component and I’m having a little trouble articulate, articulating it. Uh, we had the L sit, uh, press to handstand, right. Mm-hmm <affirmative> uh, and then on the paras and then walking away. Yep. We had, uh, so a new variation of the peg board.

SMTP (12:23):

It was, and it wasn’t an L sit. Uh, cuz I saw athletes start from a tuck position. Okay. They just had this. Yeah. So it wasn’t necessarily an L but it was a press to handstand from the

Sevan Matossian (12:31):

Paras. Okay. That good, good, uh, distinction. Then we saw a new variation on the pegboard.

SMTP (12:37):

Yep. Strict pegboard.

Sevan Matossian (12:38):

Then we saw a new jump rope. A crossover. Not, not just, not, not just a crossover. If it would’ve been a crossover that would’ve been okay. A

SMTP (12:46):

Crossover single. It was a crossover. Double.

Sevan Matossian (12:48):

Yeah. Crossover double

SMTP (12:50):

<laugh>. Yep.

Sevan Matossian (12:52):

That’s some hardcore shit. I think any one of those would’ve been fantastic.

SMTP (12:59):

Putting three of ’em together was just was

Sevan Matossian (13:01):

Tough. It was a lot. It was a lot. But then how about this? I know I’m, I’m sure that somewhere in the CrossFit games, people have been demanded to do things unbroken before. Right. But there, but there’s some gymnastics quality about how much unbroken shit that they had to do where people were being sort of um, uh, like in gymnastics you’re, you’re, you’re, you’re not just rewarded for your successes, but you’re punished for your failures in the movements. You know what I mean? Like if you Fu you have to do it right now and, and if you fuck it up, even though you’ve done it a thousand times perfect. Before, um, you get doc points, was there sort of a gymnastics like judging component you feel because of the need to do so many things unbroken you had, if you fell off the, um, uh, if you fell during the handstand walk, you had to go to the beginning.

Sevan Matossian (13:51):

If you messed up the, uh, pistols, you had to go back to the beginning. If you messed up the, uh, you know, the pegboard, you gotta get new pegs. Um, or if you touched it, did you, did you know what I’m trying to say here? That there was a, a, because of all the, the, the jump open, because so two of the rounds had to be unbroken that, that, that that’s never been so heavily. Um, the unbroken caused the movement quality to worsen. There was a lot of, there was more stress than I’ve ever seen in a workout because of how much unbroken shit or is that just ridiculous?

SMTP (14:19):

No, I think it added stress. Uh, and that’s, and that’s why I initially said earlier that I thought the jump rope was gonna give people more trouble than I think a lot of people thought, um, it’s what kept Tia out. I think she, she got late into her set of 50 double unders and then tripped, um,

Sevan Matossian (14:36):

Had to go back. No, she didn’t dude. I don’t think she made it outta the first round.

SMTP (14:40):

No, she did. She got into, yeah. She got into the double owners and she was late into her set of 50 like forties. Okay. Tripped, uh, which is that’s 30 that’s 25 seconds in a workout. You just can’t. And that’s what she finished. She finished that second one in like 2 25. Um, and the best were finishing around 1 58, 2 minutes.

Sevan Matossian (14:58):

And um, and so we see the women do it. We didn’t, we don’t see any of the women get past the crossovers. Right. It’s me and too, none of them,

SMTP (15:09):

Just me. And

Sevan Matossian (15:10):

I know, I know just me, you,

SMTP (15:11):

None of ’em. None of ’em. Okay. Someone’s saying Mike M is saying I’m wrong that she didn’t make it to the doubles. Um,

Sevan Matossian (15:17):

Don’t tell him he’s wrong. Tell him what’s right. Um, and so, so, so the crossovers, none of the women make it past the crossover and, and at this point, Adrian Bosman must be tripping big time. Oh shit. The entire field of 40. It’s not like they, it’s not like they choked a little bit. They, they, they, they choked a lot. They, and it wasn’t, their it’s starting to look like it’s not their fault. Like they were set up for failure. Right. Mm-hmm <affirmative> and, and you don’t wanna do that. You don’t wanna do that to the greatest athletes in the world. I wanna give you an example of, of that, by the way, for those you something historically that I don’t think’s ever been set out loud. Um, in, in, I don’t remember what year the games were, but they were in Carson. Listen, listen, Taylor in Carson, there was an event called the softball throw <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (16:04):

And when, and when, when Greg told Dave to do that competition, he said, I want you to throw the ball with both left hand and right hand. And Dave and Greg got into it. And Greg was right. That was the correct test. But Dave wanted to save some integrity of the athletes because he knew that the internet would then be filled with memes of fucking rich phoning doing this. And we’d be seeing it in fail videos for the next fucking a hundred years. Right. It would just be a fucking montage of the 79 of the 80 athletes that can’t throw it their left hand. And so they didn’t do it to preserve some fucking integrity of the, um, of the sport. Like we just weren’t ready to, to hang our dicks out that, to be that vulnerable yet. And, and there was, there was, I had that fear watching this event that we were setting ourselves up for that kind of vulnerability and oh fuck. And if you saw the comments, everyone was ripping on it. Did you see it? Oh yeah, no one was coming to fucking Adrian’s defense. And then finally, I don’t know where he is from, but his name’s Nick Matthew

SMTP (17:03):

He’s right outside of, uh he’s in Minnesota.

Sevan Matossian (17:06):

And he fucking put that Cape on and ripped, open his shirt and showed the S and, and I thought it was awesome that chase says, oh my God, Adrian must be so happy. And then the camera shows Adrian Bosman. And he’s, if the event’s not even over and Adrian just clapping, did you see that? He’s just clapping like this. And, and I think Adrian got, I think Adrian got redemption. It was risky. What do you think? I think he got redemption cuz two people finished and the crowd went fucking crazy. Tyler Watkins. Thank you for saving the day. Go ahead, Taylor, read whatever you want. <laugh> no, please answer me Taylor.

SMTP (17:39):

No, I, I think Nick MC and gee finished the test to me. Show

Sevan Matossian (17:42):

That and ner right workout. Vener

SMTP (17:44):

Didn’t finish. No, no. Okay. Uh, no ner didn’t finish. So Justin, Maderas got to the sit, pressed the handstand and missed it twice. Then hit it on the third and then time expired as he was walking down the ramp. But I think GE and Nick, Matthew finishing the workout showed at least to me that it was the right workout. And what I think happened maybe is that the right five women didn’t necessarily make it into that third round. So what I think would’ve been a little better is if the skills that were required in that third round were tested to a lighter degree potentially in the earlier rounds, so that you got the people who would’ve been able to have finished that, uh, LT to press or the crossover double unders

Sevan Matossian (18:27):

I’m gonna translate what, uh, Taylor self just said, and if it’s wrong, I apologize. Taylor will correct me. What Taylor is saying is if one, and it’s easy to say this in hindsight, but if they would’ve used single over crossovers, that would’ve been the most perfectly programmed event in CrossFit games, history. But because of that one tweak, it ended up almost being the worst. Taylor. Yes or no.

SMTP (18:45):

Uh, ish. Ish. Yeah. That’s close enough.

Sevan Matossian (18:48):

<laugh> uh, Tyler Watkins from Tyler Watkin’s fantasy fitness league also known as lawn chair, leader, boarding.com. Um, Tyler, uh, what do you think, dude? What, what did, was there, did, did Nick Matthews do enough to save face or is that, was that just a fucking, just a BL

Texxess (19:06):

It was a, it was good for Nick Matthews. Yeah. Um, he will not be rewarded for how much better he was than everyone he competed against on that. Um, you shouldn’t have to rely on one athlete, just randomly be being exactly the athlete you needed for that.

SMTP (19:25):

But again, but again, I don’t know that he was that much better than the rest of the field that press the handstand and the crossover double lenders, because no, I agree. Compete against four people in those two skills. So that’s what I was saying. If Phil, if the whole, if the whole elimination was the same triplet, you just have round one, repeat the same skills round two, repeat the same skills. Round three. I think you get the right people in the top five to finish it and give the show a spectacle

Texxess (19:50):


Sevan Matossian (19:50):

<affirmative> oh, or, okay, sorry. Sorry, Taylor. You did say that I was so stuck in the way I wanted to hear it. Um, so even if they just would’ve done one round and let all 40 guys go, but start with the third round. We, we have no idea if Nick Matthews would’ve won.

SMTP (20:05):

Exactly. Yeah, but we would’ve

Sevan Matossian (20:06):

Seen, oh shit. I’m we would’ve slow. Thank you. So

SMTP (20:08):

We would’ve, we would’ve seen five athletes in the top five that, you know, are finishing, are getting really close rather than two and a third getting close. And then two that aren’t even close or like the women’s side five women who are just sitting there fucking off for 30 seconds on a jump rope.

Texxess (20:24):

And, and that’s a, that’s another good point. You have to separate the men from the women. I think these are totally two different, um, topics we need to talk about is the men versus the women. I think the women, it was, it was too aggressive. I don’t know why they couldn’t do double those double under switchovers nearly.

SMTP (20:40):

Well, that’s the thing, as well as the men, it was just only those five girls couldn’t do ’em because you see the video of Laura destroying them, uh, on their Instagram. And then you see, and that again, I don’t think it was a physical thing. It wasn’t like because they’re women, they couldn’t do it. They just, right. I agree. It’s a neurological adaptation. And I think these women just didn’t or at least the five and the final just did not understand how to do a crossover jump rope.

Sevan Matossian (21:06):

Uh, oh, I wanna come back to that in one second. I just wanna check in with Susan, but I I’m in the exact I, well, I’m perplexed because in my mind, in my sexist mind, women are better at jumping rope, but let’s check in with Susan and then we’ll talk about what the fuck is going on with women in jump roping. Uh, Matt SU hi.

Mattew Souza (21:22):

Hey, what’s going on guys?

Sevan Matossian (21:23):

Oh, what happened? Did Bigfoot show up? Oh, no. Monkeypox and everyone ran for their lives.

Mattew Souza (21:29):

Yeah. This place cleared out quick. What?

Sevan Matossian (21:31):


Mattew Souza (21:31):

<laugh> it was nuts, but did you guys see what I was shooting over there a little bit? It looks like, uh, they’re hanging up some ropes and I’m gonna make my way around to that side, but it looks like there’s, um, some sort of, uh, obstacle that’ll be jumping over. So I’m gonna get, I’m gonna move around to the other side of the field. So you guys could, uh, check that

Sevan Matossian (21:47):

Out. Okay. Don’t go inside the media area. You’ll lose your pass.

Mattew Souza (21:50):

Right, right, right. See I’m outside of it very clearly outside of it

Sevan Matossian (21:55):

Here. Okay. Thank you. Um, Susan, I heard that, um, I’m hearing, I’m getting me text messages that the after that event, um, what’s it called the silly speed or

SMTP (22:05):

No speed skill skills, speed, elimination

Sevan Matossian (22:09):

Skills, skill, speed elimination that the women were, um, angry, that there was some, there was some really angry women and people were being very vocal about it. Did you witness any of that?

Mattew Souza (22:19):

Yeah, you could definitely see it. I was sitting across the side, like on the opposite side of where they were and I could still see them very, they there’s the body language and the way that, especially there was some sort of frustration. And I think you guys touched on this already, but I think Danielle, there was some sort of miscommunication with her and her judge and I was close enough to that to see that she just looked like as if she was either confused on the standard or her judge was, and she kept going, did that count? Did this count and tried to making a adaptation on the fly there. So I don’t know. And then you guys already touched on it, but a lot of people were saying that Matthews, um, didn’t do it. It was a single under, but then the slow motion video that he provided clearly shows that he just, he had it down and the rope did pass through twice.

Sevan Matossian (23:00):

Uh, okay. Don’t get too close to any of those people. I don’t want you getting monkey P uh, PS, uh, gig. Josh says tutors fast on his hands, but couldn’t do 75 single lenders to, to earn the ability to show it off and that. So I’m gonna take what jiggy Josh says and be like, Hey, that’s another, uh, you know, kind of quiver or feather, uh, in Adrian’s, uh, corner because, uh, that’s not his fault. Everyone should be able to do 75 single lenders. Yep. Yep. I also heard, and I find this hard to believe that, um, tutor Magda went over afterwards and blew up on James Townsend. That, that can’t be true, right. By the way, those are the VIP stairs that I used to go up. I used to

SMTP (23:36):

VIP blew up on him about what?

Sevan Matossian (23:38):

Uh, after he came off. I don’t know what, but after that event, after he failed on a 75 single unders that he, that he came over to, to James Townsend exploded, I’m guessing

SMTP (23:47):

That it was. And was it the single lenders or was it the pegboards?

Texxess (23:50):

It was the single lenders. He tripped like three times. I was like second row. Um, I didn’t watch

SMTP (23:57):

Side. I didn’t see that part of that. He,

Texxess (24:00):


Sevan Matossian (24:00):

Looked great. Did you witness him exploding on, on James Townsend? I

Texxess (24:03):

Didn’t see that, but I watched him come off and if he, so I I’ve coached football in the past. Uh, and if he had come off the field like that, I’d been, get your ass on the bitch. Like he was being kind of a baby about it. And I was like,

Sevan Matossian (24:14):

Oh, so you think, you think maybe Townson blew up on him,

Texxess (24:17):

But maybe so I like, Hey, be it grown up and go sit down, you screwed up. Sorry. Like handle it. Like

SMTP (24:23):

He’s a young, he’s a young kid too.

Texxess (24:24):

He’s a young kid. Yeah. And, and it was like, that’s how we handled it. And it’s like, we need to be professional here. Tia handled it. Well, she screwed up and she took her punch and she got off the field

Sevan Matossian (24:35):

Boohoo called Williams. Hey, I’m just, I, I don’t know if any of that’s true. We’ll speak to tutor tomorrow. Morning seven at 7:00 AM. I do know that they showed him, put his hands, his face in his hands, which is a pretty dramatic posture posture. And I, and I kind of don’t blame him. That must have hurt. Uh, so happy to finally catch a live show, miss pug face what’d I tell you about changing your, the name of your profile, but thank you for the dollar 90.

SMTP (24:56):

I think in terms of the women getting upset and it’s just bruised egos, like, like Adrian said, was gonna happen this year and there’s gonna be bruised egos. And I also think that, uh, in order for the sport to grow, people have gotta get uncomfortable and be exposed. Matt love that over under

Sevan Matossian (25:11):

Logs, Matt Suza. What are we looking at there? Gonna get over the, gonna get kicked outta, gonna get kicked out of the venue.

Mattew Souza (25:19):

No, no, this is is free and this is free and open spaces.

Sevan Matossian (25:22):

I’m not,

Mattew Souza (25:22):

I’m not in any restricted area. Everybody’s allowed back here.

Sevan Matossian (25:25):

If you don’t get kicked out, I don’t think you’re doing your job.

Mattew Souza (25:28):

Hey, I’m just checking out this hardworking road crew. These guys are incredible tutor, horse. That’s what, that’s what we’re witnessing here. Anything else you guys see is just collateral damage? I don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (25:38):

Hey, um, is that, uh, is that those things that are out there on the field is that are those, uh, saw horses that that’s what they use those to do work on?

Mattew Souza (25:47):

Yes. That’s what they look like.

Sevan Matossian (25:49):

Um, can you zoom?

Mattew Souza (25:52):

I’m gonna take I don’t no, I don’t think I can.

Sevan Matossian (25:56):

Okay. Let’s make that big, uh, will, can we make that big give, uh, Suza his own screen? Yeah, there we go.

SMTP (26:03):

I think we’re doing burpees over the,

Sevan Matossian (26:06):

Oh, are they? Why are there only two of those, uh, Matt, are they gonna, are they putting more together or do you think it’s some sort of group event where they run towards that and there’s only a narrow win, uh, lane for people to jump over?

Mattew Souza (26:19):

Well, that would be awesome, but it just looks like it might be set up here for like a demo or something.

SMTP (26:23):

And how high is that Suza? Is that like chest height? 48 inches maybe.

Mattew Souza (26:28):

Yep. Yep. That’s exactly how high it looks. It looks like it would come up right to my, uh, collarbone or so, and I’m five, nine and a half, five, 10.

Sevan Matossian (26:35):

Perfect. So I could walk right underneath that. Yeah.

Mattew Souza (26:37):

Yeah. You, yeah, you wouldn’t even have, would shave your hair.

Sevan Matossian (26:41):

Miss P face more Mara 1999. Dang. Uh, and this is inflation Amanda with the beautiful hair, Pablo 49 99. Super sticker. Thank you crazy. Thank you. I only bathe men. Sorry, but thank you. Um, how many competitions? Uh, Trina MCLE. How many competitions have pulled out? Competitors have pulled out the competition thus far. Great question. Suza. We have, uh, Emily Rolf. And do we have any news on her?

Mattew Souza (27:13):

No, no news on, uh, Emily yet, but we’ve kind of been siloed off in the, uh, stadium. So there’s also, I get something

SMTP (27:21):

Soon. There’s also a 65 plus athlete that withdrew a male.

Sevan Matossian (27:25):

Uh that’s right. Mu mu. And anyone else besides those two SU?

Mattew Souza (27:29):

Not that I’ve heard of yet, no.

Sevan Matossian (27:31):

Okay. All right. Thank you, brother. Keep up the good work. Um, why do you guys think that, um, Tyler was saying that there’s a difference between men and women, but wouldn’t you think that jump roping was one of those things? At least when I grew up, when I was a kid, the girls were better at jump roping.

SMTP (27:46):

It’s all rhythm and a lot of girls grow up dancing and I think that’s why it makes a little easier on them. Okay. But I think it’s just what they’re exposed to. I don’t, I don’t think it has anything to do with gender. I just think it’s what you’re

Sevan Matossian (27:57):

Exposed to growing sex up. You mean sex, sex,

SMTP (28:00):

Whatever. Yeah.

Texxess (28:01):

I also think because it was the first time that the judging staff was going through it on the course, they, they were probably a little bit more apprehensive weren’t as clear on what the standard was. And so some of the girls were frustrated like, like Taylor said. And so with the men, things were a little bit more clear. I’m not saying that they were absolutely clear, but so there was more frustration from the girls in the first and the guys might have had more clarification going into that than the women did.

SMTP (28:28):

I also was a little frustrated seeing the differences in jump ropes. And I thought if they’re gonna allow some athletes to use like a Beed jump rope, all the athletes should have had the ability to select one potentially. And maybe they did, but

Texxess (28:41):

I think I would rope. I think it was like a rope jump rope. I don’t think it was Beed unless you guys could have seen it better than me.

SMTP (28:47):

It’s like, it’s not truly Beed, but it has these long beads on it that slide over a string and they are all pretty much it’s like joint. And so it just look it like, it’s not I’m 99% sure. That’s what it was.

Texxess (29:00):

Yeah. Maybe, maybe you’re right.

SMTP (29:02):


Sevan Matossian (29:02):

That’s like, how wrong I didn’t jump rope. And Trina’s claiming that she’s a woman, but I’ve text with you. And I’ve made a friendship with you the last, uh, two, uh, two, uh, months. And you swear like a sailor sailor. You’re more dude than girl.

SMTP (29:14):

Oh my God. It’s James Sprague. Matt, get that guy on here.

Sevan Matossian (29:17):

Okay. Let’s get James on here for a second. So, so what you’re saying is, is that, um, okay. Let’s get James on

Mattew Souza (29:24):

Sevan Matossian (29:27):

Mattew Souza (29:30):

Sevan Matossian (29:31):

Sevan Matossian (29:34):

Mattew Souza (29:35):

Sevan Matossian (29:37):

Wanna ask him? Um, James. So, so he didn’t have monkey PS. The truth is, is that just street horn was the only one who could do the, um, tuck position to handstand. He’s dirty,

Mattew Souza (29:45):

Bro. That’s right. He said he didn’t have monkey. P <laugh>. He just got monkey. I’m spreading nothing. I’m spreading vibes.

Sevan Matossian (29:54):

Mattew Souza (29:57):

Hey, why was street Horner called in, uh, street was called in because.
