#525 – Adrian Bozman | CrossFit Games Day 1 Recap

Listen now

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

More live. Holy cow.

Mattew Souza (00:03):

What a day?

Sevan Matossian (00:04):

Podcast history. Hey, I was thinking maybe tomorrow morning, we just do a live column show. There’s something totally off the beaten path. Cause we don’t have to go live for the games until like two

Mattew Souza (00:16):

Let’s do it.

Sevan Matossian (00:17):

You wanna?

Mattew Souza (00:18):

Yeah. You got, you got notes. You got yo, you got a list of you’re you’re staple here.

Sevan Matossian (00:23):

<laugh> I’m pump you’re uh, what a day? You’re in Madison right now

Mattew Souza (00:29):

In Madison.

Sevan Matossian (00:30):

And it’s uh, 1136 for you.

Mattew Souza (00:33):

That’s right.

Sevan Matossian (00:34):

How long you been awake

Mattew Souza (00:36):

Since? Uh, six 30 this morning. Are you good? That echo echo,

Sevan Matossian (00:41):

Uh, that, uh, how about now? Hello? Hello about now. Okay. Yeah. I just switched on to these, this headset. I, I, I ran to this store to get, um, breakfast for my kids tomorrow. And I’ve been bugging Adrian all day. Like, Hey, can you come on for a minute? Can you come on for a minute? And you know, he’s cool with shit. And then all of a sudden he sends me a text back when I’m coming back from the store with things, I’m like, oh my God. He’s like, let’s do it. I got five or 10. I’m like Adrian.

Mattew Souza (01:07):

Oh yes,

Boz (01:08):

Yo. I mean, what’s the deal. You guys in bed already just

Sevan Matossian (01:14):

Over there

Boz (01:18):

To jump on. And you guys are already tucking it in.

Mattew Souza (01:21):

No, not for you, sir. Not for you. We are always ready,

Sevan Matossian (01:24):

Dude. Are you back at the hotel, Adrian?

Boz (01:26):

Yeah, I, I was trying to, I had the shot lined up and everything. I was outside. The, the sign was glow in the background. You could see the capital. It was gonna be the best, but now you just have to listen to me without any sort of like cool background. It’s really not that cool. Cuz it’s just me.

Sevan Matossian (01:39):

Do you have any weird, um, are, do you have any weird ritual? Like you’re doing a three mile walk home from the fucking event front to no, you don’t got time for that bullshit? No, like you’re like, okay. I’m racing to bed and close my eyes

Boz (01:51):

Pretty much. I mean, yeah. Take a shower, scrape all the sunscreen off of you. <laugh> I used to do that all the time, actually in the car some days I would take a hotel credit card or uh, room card with me into the shower and like literally scrape off all the gunk from the day. Pretty gross.

Mattew Souza (02:07):

The residue. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (02:09):

Are you still slumming it, you still get that dirt on you

Boz (02:12):

From Carson? Probably not.

Sevan Matossian (02:14):

No, but in uh, in Madison,

Boz (02:16):

Uh, I mean sunscreen’s disgusting anyway. Slice it.

Sevan Matossian (02:20):

You’ve graduated. Yeah. Are you still, you still wear it?

Boz (02:23):

Yeah. Yeah. Gots to Canadian. My, my, my Cardinal rule is no sunburn before game day refused to get a sunburn before, uh, comp day starts really makes fun of me cuz I’m like, oh, you know, they’re wearing like those sun hoodies and long pants. And I’m like, yeah, but I’m not blasted by Wednesday. <laugh>

Mattew Souza (02:41):

Yeah, no kidding. That sun is B and it gets sticky, quick,

Sevan Matossian (02:47):

New, new, new, new pegboard variation.

Boz (02:51):

It’s not new dude. This, this the thing about the pegboard. The only way I ever saw people climbing pegboards like if you wrestle or you did pegboard anything as a kid, it was no legs. Yeah. The only time I’ve seen pegboard with legs was when they started happening to CrossFit games.

Sevan Matossian (03:08):

I, I totally agree. I totally agree. But new for the CrossFit games athletes.

Boz (03:11):

Okay. I guess if that’s the only thing that they’ve dabbled with on the pegboard. Sure. New, but it shouldn’t be new for them.

Sevan Matossian (03:18):

Right. I agree. But, but in the games, new, new jump rope variation.

Boz (03:23):

Same spiel for me on that one, but yeah. Okay.

Sevan Matossian (03:26):

I understand. I understand. And, and then, uh, uh, a, a tuck position or any position where you’re on top of the parallel bars to a, to a press

Boz (03:35):

Let’s, let’s call it a baby toe in the water press.

Sevan Matossian (03:38):

Okay. Baby toing, the water press,

Boz (03:39):

Baby toe press. Cause it’s not, you know, like the purist in me is like, well, is it press the handstand sorta, but

Sevan Matossian (03:45):

Did you tell Nick Matthew, listen, asshole. If you don’t do this, I’ll make sure you never come to the game again. And he just fucking

Boz (03:54):

Had

Sevan Matossian (03:54):

With him and just to beat the world’s largest beat of sweat rolled off your brow onto the floor. <laugh>

Boz (03:59):

<laugh> I had, I had no contact with him until after the event. I found him back in the warm up here and I was like, dang dude, thank you for saving that for me. <laugh> I hope when you hugged and you pressed

Sevan Matossian (04:12):

Your hips up against his hips and let him feel your body heat.

Boz (04:15):

No, he was riding an echo bike. So, you know, I couldn’t get that close, but uh, I did say thanks, man. That was awesome. Um, just need one person, one person to finished that it was awesome,

Sevan Matossian (04:24):

Dude. And you know, what’s crazy. Yeah. Is chase Ingram is such a beast. He, him and Sean did a great job today and but chase goes, oh shit, chase basically called it before. I mean, this isn’t my stake chase basically on the live with hundreds of thousands of people watch, he’s like, oh shit. You know, Bozeman’s gotta be happy now. And the camera passes over to you. It’s the, event’s not even over. And you’re already clapping. You’re like, <laugh>,

Boz (04:48):

You’re just, I didn’t know.

Sevan Matossian (04:49):

You’re like one of those wind up drummer dolls.

Boz (04:52):

I didn’t know that I was on the live stream. I went back into the, uh, the room after that heat and uh, JAK came up to me and he was like, Hey man, it’s a good look on the, uh, on the broadcast. I was like, what are you talking about? So yeah.

Sevan Matossian (05:05):

And, and

Boz (05:05):

You lived that’s my, my proud dad moment right there. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (05:08):

Yeah. And then you start walking, like, you’re, you’re going somewhere. Like as the event’s over, like you’re going towards the athletes or you’re going to do whatever you have to do next. Your smile looks like, like you micro, dotted too many mushrooms and, and you, and you go and your lips say, let’s go like you’re pumped. Like it’s like the most natural. Yeah.

Boz (05:28):

Yeah. I was pumped. It was fun to see.

Sevan Matossian (05:31):

I was stoked for you. Um, yeah. What did anyone on the team was anyone when you programmed that was anyone on your team? Like, ah, Adrian, maybe we’ll just do the pegboard this year and then the next year would do the, uh, jump, the advanced jump rope. And then the next year do no,

Boz (05:43):

Dude, I have to say everybody was really, I, I actually expected a lot more pushback on that one internally. And particularly from the athletes when we tested it at rogue and they all had a lot of fun with it. You should ask next time you see Dan Bailey, ask him about trying to learn that double under cross over. He, uh, he had a rough go with that.

Sevan Matossian (06:03):

<laugh> what, what do you mean? Um, at rogue required,

Boz (06:05):

Required ointment.

Sevan Matossian (06:07):

Oh, okay.

Boz (06:08):

That much.

Sevan Matossian (06:09):

Okay. Uh, uh, so, so you, you test, you went out to rogue headquarters and we’re testing some of these workouts.

Boz (06:16):

Yeah, buddy.

Sevan Matossian (06:17):

Okay. I didn’t know that

Boz (06:19):

That’s that’s top secret shit. All

Sevan Matossian (06:21):

Right. <laugh> all right. Well now we know

Boz (06:23):

You think, you know, you think, you know it all seven. I know you got fingers out there, but, but you know, you don’t know it

Sevan Matossian (06:28):

All. I don’t, I don’t, but I have to pretend like I do. Right,

Boz (06:31):

Right. That’s I mean, I, you got a lot, but not all of them.

Sevan Matossian (06:36):

Um, when, when, when we’re, um, uh, with no criticism, uh, congratulations that you kept the integrity of the events by not subbing by, by saying, fuck you to the weather. We’ll go tomorrow. You ain’t telling us what to do. We’re not changing, but if you would’ve changed it, I heard it. Yeah. I heard suggestions that it, that it might be a, uh, press. And that’s what I thought you would’ve switched to, but James town’s in, and maybe it was a Taylor self. They said it needed to be a deadlift to replace it because of how much a jerk like that would work the legs. And well, so what do you say?

Boz (07:14):

We went, I agree that I think that that closer, because it’s such a leg drive movement after that sprint, but the same time, you know, deadlift just didn’t I don’t know. It didn’t feel right. Um, so strict press was on the, on the docket. We actually briefed that to the athletes that said, Hey, if there’s really bad weather, we might end up doing that. And

Sevan Matossian (07:37):

So strict press looks good that the put and me wants a strict press. The scientist knows that, Hey, it should be a deadlift.

Boz (07:43):

Sure. But Hey, we all, we, we back a house. We’re talking about a hybrid where we were thinking about we would do a, uh, well, the major concern, especially with the slippage was, you know, overhead position and then big, heavy things on the field. The uprights are really big and heavy and hitting those things is they’re gonna win. <laugh> we’ll put it that way. So one of the solutions we were thinking about was using squat racks instead. Cause they’re not as big and not as heavy having the athletes on racket. And then they could do push press, cuz the feet are more fixed, you know? So that was on the table as well.

Sevan Matossian (08:15):

Um, there, there was something I wanted to ask you about. Oh, tomorrow’s workout has tomorrow’s workout been briefed yet. I apologize for the loaded question. I’m leading you down so well

Boz (08:24):

Thursday, so hold on. The ones that we’re supposed to go today, that’s

Sevan Matossian (08:29):

What, that’s one that’s supposed to go the two a and two B has that. That

Boz (08:32):

Was briefed this morning. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (08:33):

Okay. And what we were trying to figure out, is there a minimum work

Boz (08:37):

Requirement? Oh, I’m glad you asked. This is something I want to address. Thank you. This is like, okay. I think it’s so goofy when people are like, well, is there a minimum because that just means athletes can sit out and strategize. I’m like, no, just I am so sick of this idea that because it’s not written into a, uh, standards document that you get that’s 18 pages long and you can like read as a, as a law manual. Yeah. That it’s okay for me to do in competition. No, that’s ridiculous. The spirit of the CrossFit games is that you do the, you do the events to the best of your ability and you don’t sit rounds out. That’s not how it is. So we have a, a written, and even if there’s no minimum, it is always briefed to the athletes that you must attempt to continue the workout until time expires.

Boz (09:22):

There’s no taken rounds off. This is not the minimum games. That’s not what you do when you get to the big stage. Um, and that’s the sportsmanship element. And, and I’ll tell you, man, this is one of those things. Again, like culture, the culture of the sport is so weird in some ways, because people say they want, you know, more standards, more standards, more standards. I’m like, okay, cool. That’s great to a point. But think about what you’re asking for. At some point you get to a state where you for the simplest of events are asking for a 10 page document on exactly what is allowed and exactly what is not, when it’s really simple, you know, you’re gonna run down there, you’re gonna lift and you’re not gonna take rounds off. That’s it? What is the penalty? Well, there might not be one, but that doesn’t mean that it’s fair game for you to just like not do it. That’s not the way that we’re operating and we never have,

Sevan Matossian (10:14):

Let me give an example of that. And then, uh, that agrees with what you said and then let me push back a second. Um, when, when it, uh, I think I was in, uh, sitting down with you and Dave one time and we were at the ranch and we were talking and you guys were saying, and maybe, I can’t remember. I think it was Dave, but basically if rich would’ve won the games without making a rope climb, you guys, weren’t gonna let ’em win the games. Yeah. You were gonna be like, fuck you. If you can’t do a rope climb, doesn’t matter. If you have more points, we’re not giving you the win. That was like 2010. I was like, damn, these guys are hardcore.

Boz (10:45):

But that’s the early days when yeah, that happened where we had some athletes that qualified, they were ahead on points enough in some of the qualifying stages. But then they couldn’t do something like a muscle up. And we had these bill Emmas of like, man, they crushed on points, but that’s a fundamental skill. Can you really have somebody progress that, you know, can’t do this thing, but is ahead on so much other stuff. And at the time, because we didn’t have that fully thought through. We did let some of those athletes compete, but that’s kind of where the birth of the minimum work came from now that the field is so deep. Like you don’t really need that. So, so,

Sevan Matossian (11:21):

Well maybe because

Boz (11:22):

Like, like, like what lemme say,

Sevan Matossian (11:23):

I, that you’re putting time caps on workouts, like the traversing one. Yeah. In order to show people that you don’t need to rest, as long as you think you do that, that it’s kind of

Boz (11:35):

No, let me give you the other. No, no, no. Hold on for that one in particular, that is every athlete in that field will look at 1 35 and 95 and say that’s light. And I say, great. Prove it. Mm-hmm <affirmative> don’t put the bar down. If that’s light, then gain time there and do what pat Vener did and jam out everything else in like totally dominant fashion. <laugh> that? That was so

Sevan Matossian (11:59):

Awesome. What would be kind of like with the minimum, did

Boz (12:01):

You see us finish?

Mattew Souza (12:02):

Yeah, it was epic and you never really see that outta him too. It was cool. It was really cool to

Sevan Matossian (12:07):

See. What did you think, Adrian? I know you’re not a huge fan of, uh, show boating, but did you like it coming from pat and then how he explained it at the end? He’s practicing. Yeah.

Boz (12:15):

Oh, I loved it. I thought it was great. A little nod. That’s not showboating. That was like, yeah.

Sevan Matossian (12:21):

Uh, I don’t like it that he did it before he crosses the finish line. I don’t, it

Boz (12:25):

Was great.

Mattew Souza (12:26):

Hey, when you had as much time as he did it

Boz (12:27):

Matter scares me. He was a minute up. Come on, man.

Sevan Matossian (12:30):

It scares me.

Mattew Souza (12:32):

He could have gone over at high fived. Other people, the crowded then still crossed the line,

Boz (12:36):

Live a little,

Sevan Matossian (12:37):

Hey, look, look what Ricky did to, uh, um, uh, who, who do yous in, in the bike event? Just slip by him. Who now I know yanas wasn’t show button, but damn,

Boz (12:50):

That was, uh, that was fun. That was a fun event. I really, the women’s finish on. That was so cool. Cuz I mean, it looked like Haley was gonna run away with it. And then man, Tia and Emma came in hot on that last lap and it was a real, I mean it was a mad dash of the finish. That was awesome.

Sevan Matossian (13:06):

When you tested the workout, that’s coming tomorrow. Did anyone not? Was anyone not able to do the last 804 minutes?

Boz (13:15):

No.

Sevan Matossian (13:16):

No. Okay.

Boz (13:17):

Dude, I could

Sevan Matossian (13:18):

Do that. Hey dude, I can only think from my fucking sloppy fucking,

Boz (13:21):

You could do that. You could do. You could do at 804 minutes.

Sevan Matossian (13:25):

I don’t know about with all that other shit. Well, I would have to stand around and look at the, uh, Hey, what would the, what was the push press gonna be the weight of it? If you would.

Boz (13:33):

You’re thinking 2 25 and 1 45.

Mattew Souza (13:35):

Oh, that’ve been good.

Boz (13:37):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (13:38):

Wow. Wow. Wow. Okay. So tomorrow that one’s gonna be just insane,

Boz (13:42):

Dude. That’s the silver lining. I was really, you know, the rain, whatever or not rain. It was lightning. The, the, um, weather delay is what it is and it, at the time it’s kind of like at the bummer, but it allowed us to do a lot of really cool things. In retrospect, you know, number one, we get to run that event as it’s meant to be run. Number two means athletes compete every day, which is kind of fun. And then, uh, on the team side, same deal, you know, they have that, um, three mile race. They better come out blasting, cuz they’re gonna be a, a little bit recovered and B not doing anything else that day. So it’s gonna be a fast race. So that’ll be cool too.

Sevan Matossian (14:19):

Um, do you have an, do you think that this plays out differently because the order changed?

Boz (14:25):

Uh, I mean impossible to say because you you’ll never know. I guess we’ll never know, but um, I don’t know if it’s that significant. Yeah. Tough to say. I, and the scheme of things is probably not,

Sevan Matossian (14:39):

Um, this is this, uh, from crystal Gaskin. Uh, this is an interesting comment. Good comment. BOS, the goat way to own the programming and add your own signature to it. What does she mean? Mm-hmm <affirmative> what are people, what do you think people are seeing in you when you say way to when, uh, she says way to own the programming?

Boz (14:57):

I don’t know. Um, that’s a good question.

Sevan Matossian (15:02):

Have you, you use,

Boz (15:04):

I gotta go in like two minutes by the way. I’m fading here. I’m

Sevan Matossian (15:07):

Okay. Okay. Last one. You you, um,

Boz (15:09):

Two, let’s do two. I’ll give it

Sevan Matossian (15:11):

Two. Okay. This won’t be the last time I asked you this question cause okay. And you’ll know why, when you, you said that, um, after seeing these games that coaches will change and the word you used was primacy in their coaching. And I looked that word up and sort of, it means kind of like their preeminent thing that they hold up.

Boz (15:28):

I say a lot of things. So <laugh>, and

Sevan Matossian (15:30):

We, we all took that as, okay. And I think you also said this too, that basically we’ve closed the gap on track and field. We’ve closed the gap on weight lifting. We’ve closed the gap on, uh, blah, blah, blah. Now we need to close the gap on gymnastics. Have we seen what’s in the arsenal? Like, is that it? And, and, and there’s or is there gonna be, is there something else? Is the iron cross coming in an event 10

Boz (15:51):

Iron cross is definitely happening. <laugh> Thursday after you finish your 800, if you beat the four minute time cap and it’s iron cross after that, <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (16:02):

I knew you, I wasn’t gonna get much outta you for

Boz (16:03):

That. Uh, uh, wait, what was I gonna say? Hold on. Okay. So, uh, you guys did a pretty Jr. Not you guys Jr. Did a pretty good job beast <laugh> of analyzing some of this stuff. Um, but I do think it’s funny, you guys pick apart so many, uh, specific statements it’s like you guys are the ones that want the, uh, 20 pound rule book. <laugh> dude,

Sevan Matossian (16:26):

I, I, I like the idea for a minimum work requirement because I think people are gonna have some serious issues with that last, uh, 800, but, but we’ll see.

Boz (16:35):

What are you talking about? <laugh>

Mattew Souza (16:37):

He’s really worried about that.

Sevan Matossian (16:38):

I dude, I only think of one athlete. I, every, I run everything through Colton Mertons and I’m just, I’m like fucking nervous for Colton.

Boz (16:44):

He did great on that. That, uh, P bar workout.

Sevan Matossian (16:47):

Yeah. Killed it. Yeah. Smashed it, smashed it. Third place. Um, SU do you have anything, um, for, uh, Mr. Bosman?

Mattew Souza (16:56):

I do. I was just gonna say hill and I were watching the, uh, pay board, you know, jump rope event and everything there. And we were just so impressed by just the whole entire day. I mean, all the, the contingency plan that storm I’m like, well, even when I started feeling the rain, I started getting nervous for you. Cause I’m like, how do you shift all this around and still manage it. But the fact that the events today came out with a bang, we saw some really tight races. You were able to deal with some really unpredictable stuff in a way that still made it really fun and fair. And then we also really got to see the athletes be tested. I personally really liked the fact that when we were waiting to see if, uh, somebody was gonna make it through that, um, L sit the handstand and then we did. And I just think that’s awesome. Cuz when you see those events, you know, next year everybody’s gonna crush that. It leaves something in the back of their head where everybody’s like frustrated. Like why didn’t we train that? And um, I think we’re gonna come back straight. So just super impressed with, with the programming, your leadership and your in the team. Obviously that works

Boz (17:53):

Blowing me up now.

Mattew Souza (17:53):

Everything else? Yeah. Sorry. Sorry. But okay then I’ll ask the last, in all honesty in all honesty,

Sevan Matossian (17:57):

I’ll ask the last question then

Boz (17:58):

Can wait. No, no, no, no. One more thing. That’s I’ll I’ll give you guys a little insight here. The importance of doing your homework and uh, this is something that, um, we almost didn’t do. We, I can’t remember the day now, but we were, um, pretty sure that we had the team event right. With the bike and the Bob. And we’re like, man, I was talking with Todd, who’s running that division. And he’s like, I kind of feel like we should do it one more time. We’re like, all right, we did it. And it was a pain in the ass. Cause we had to close the campus down again to like run that, you know, it’s hard to keep that under wraps with such a big rangey thing that you’re testing. Um, but we did change some things and we got it right. And the way that we got that right is that, that one all hinged on being able to get the Bob done before the bike, if the people are waiting for bikes, it pushes you to ride hard. If you, if you didn’t have that factor, people could basically just take the lap as a cruise and come back and be ready to go. But that wasn’t the case. And so that was just like, how

Sevan Matossian (18:57):

Do you do that? You make the bike ride longer, the Bob longer or bike ride shorter or the Bob, how do you do that? What’d you do to make sure that to adjust it. We,

Boz (19:04):

We just had to adjust. We had to get like the right distance on the field to push and the right number of reps so that most of the good teams would be in a position where that work is gonna be done and they’re waiting on the bike. So the bike has to be done hard.

Sevan Matossian (19:20):

Crush it.

Boz (19:21):

Anyway, side note tangent, you had a question.

Sevan Matossian (19:24):

Oh how’s how’s that we heard Emily Ralph was taken to the hospital. Do you have anything you can share with us about that?

Boz (19:29):

I don’t.

Sevan Matossian (19:30):

Okay. Okay. Thank you. Cool.

Boz (19:32):

All

Sevan Matossian (19:32):

Right, man. Uh, see you tomorrow. Thanks brother. Crazy. Appreciate you coming on. Yep, of

Boz (19:36):

Course.

Mattew Souza (19:36):

Thank you.

Sevan Matossian (19:39):

I was at the, I was at the store getting like eggs and shit. <laugh> fucking nine o’clock and he text me. He’s like, I thought you said you wanted me to come on and we had sent him a link. He’s like I went on and you weren’t there. I was like three minutes.

Mattew Souza (19:51):

<laugh> all your share. Right? In the eye hill, you set up stream yard, Susan, meet me on the live channel. <laugh> awesome.

Sevan Matossian (20:00):

That’s accuracy is highlighted in a big way. This, this must be a true CrossFitter using the word accuracy, accuracy. Uh, tomorrow’s workouts are the blocks taller than Colton. They’re tall. They’re those big steel ones. They look, they look tall. Um, why do you buy shit at the store to eat about eggs? About sparkling water, stuff like that?

Mattew Souza (20:30):

Yeah, and I know, uh, there said I was kind of gassing up a little bit that, but everything that I said was actually the truth like hill and I were just sitting there and we were just going over all this stuff. I mean, think about it. The first event there was that, uh, issue with the lapse and, and every time I saw Boz, he just seemed calm, cool, collected. It looked like his team all knew what to do. Um, those first couple events that came out with the bang were really exciting. They were fun to watch. They were new. We weren’t gonna know how the athletes were going to, uh, handle ’em and to package all that up into the day and then add the weather in the rainstorm and moving around that other event and making the decisions on the fly there and still holding to the schedule for the rest of the day. I, I was just impressed. I mean, that was a big it’s his debut as being the programmer and running the show and to just get all that dumped on you in the same day and to have him handle it the way he did and still make it as cool as he did. I think just completely speaks to, um, his capabilities.

Sevan Matossian (21:24):

I agree, beast, beast mode. Uh, we did not go over the leaderboards tonight. Like I don’t know why it was my fault when I got off, uh, Jr. And Taylor, let me know that they tried, uh, I apologize. We will go over these tomorrow morning, uh, in our show. Um, uh, we’ll go over the men’s Ricky Gerard in first place, Justin Madras in second place in Yana Koski. And then we will go over the women. Of course, two Malo, LeBron, Emma Lawson, Ariel Lowen, uh, day one really means nothing. Uh, for all of us, who’ve watched cross the games for years. We know that this shit gets rattled and rattled quick. Uh, yeah, for, for sure. Thanks for coming on again. Um, I, uh, thanks Bruce. Thank you. Uh, me and Susan are trying, I don’t, I, I do, I really do wanna do a live call and show tomorrow. I’d love to do something to wave, to talk about anything besides CrossFit. I’m afraid if I do it, um, too many people are gonna call in and, and overrun.

Mattew Souza (22:21):

It’s gonna go nuts.

Sevan Matossian (22:21):

Oh, the people are just gonna want to call and talk about CrossFit, but we may do that tomorrow morning. I, I, I think it’s, there’s a good chance. We’ll do it, uh, pretty early. Um, probably 7:00 AM Pacific standard time, uh, 9:00 AM central time and we’ll try to keep it on track to talk about the fun stop subjects. You know, the, the comedy I like to do around abortion and racism and shit like that. <laugh> so

Mattew Souza (22:42):

All the easy Lightheart topics.

Sevan Matossian (22:44):

Yeah. Choice pet athe

Mattew Souza (22:47):

Hey, real quick. You

Sevan Matossian (22:48):

Guys, you disorders. Go ahead and Susan, sorry.

Mattew Souza (22:50):

I know, I know you touched base on it, but I was just, I was so pumped to watch Ariel alone in that last event, like just a smile on her face. And like when her and Tia were going head to head in that section, as they were coming into that second set of the nines, or might have been the third set of the nines, it was just, it was super cool to watch. And I really like her and she was one of the first, um, people at waap PZA that I interviewed kind of live that didn’t run away from me. So I’ll always

Sevan Matossian (23:15):

Be grateful for that. That appreciate that. Right, right. That is not easy. By the way, people being media at these events is crazy, crazy. Intimidating. You look at those people and you’re like, oh, that’s just what they do. It’s not like that at all. It’s I don’t think it’s it’s it’s I don’t at least I don’t think it’s easy. Um, for any of them, holy shit. I can’t believe how many people jumped on just the last minute for this show. Thank you guys.

Mattew Souza (23:39):

And that comment that just came through, I believe we were the first ones to

Sevan Matossian (23:44):

Interview her. No, I’m not gonna give her the respect. No, but I, but I was joke. Remember I disrespected her and then I had her on the show and I had to apologize to her. Oh, did you? Okay. Sorry. Sorry, that, that comment. I, I just, I, what did I, I, I said, uh, I was talking about how she was, uh, living in a fantasy world. Think she was actually gonna make it to the games. We know you went to the semifinals just as get signage. And then I think fucking Taylor gave her a link to the show and she just popped on she’s like, what’d you say? I was like, fuck. Um, alright. Uh, thanks guys. We will see you tomorrow. Um, bye.
