#530 – Event 6 “Up and Over” Recap

Taylor Self (00:00):

Corn for, uh, dinner.

Sevan Matossian (00:02):

Bam. We’re live.

Taylor Self (00:03):

You gonna see that in your poop later when you walk and by corn, I mean, tortilla chips. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (00:08):

<laugh> uh, no, uh, no, no surprise. Right?

Taylor Self (00:17):

Predictions were pretty close.

Sevan Matossian (00:18):

Yeah, no surprise. Uh, let’s see. We’ll pull up the, uh, leader board here. Uh, that one was called up and over,

Taylor Self (00:28):

Up and over. Yep.

Sevan Matossian (00:30):

And, uh, we got Tia, mallow, Bryan, Emma laws, and Hailey Adams and Daniel, Brandon car Saunders. Uh, dig good too. I wanna see. And I think I wanna see what, uh,

Taylor Self (00:43):

They haven’t updated it yet.

Sevan Matossian (00:46):

The only person that I think that I wanna ask about right off the bat is, um, we did have, uh, oh, no car. Oh yeah. What, what happened to lower HRVT all the way down to 12th

Taylor Self (01:04):

Muscle ups just slowed her down.

JR Howell (01:05):

I didn’t, I was gonna say, I didn’t see her once.

Taylor Self (01:10):

Uh, she did not go very fast on the event and that is

Sevan Matossian (01:12):

Why the people that she was beat by that maybe she shouldn’t have been beat by are Matilda GARS Bailey rail, Paige Menza Ariel Lowen, Christie Ramma O’Connell. But, but, but, but maybe she should have been, I mean, obviously she should have been, I mean, she didn’t just take 12th. She’s 15 seconds behind 11th.

Taylor Self (01:33):

Yeah. You read all those names and I rethink my prediction about having her up in second, cuz they’re also all very good at muscle ups and gymnastics in general.

Sevan Matossian (01:44):

Uh, the, um, axle bar, uh, didn’t play as big as big of a role as I thought.

Taylor Self (01:51):


Sevan Matossian (01:52):

Uh, Jr. Any thoughts on the axle bar?

JR Howell (01:57):

I think the axle bar is there just to fatigue the midline a little bit more for what’s coming tonight.

Sevan Matossian (02:03):

Okay. Um, so, so do you, would, do you think it could have been heavier five pounds heavier for each of the men and the women 10 pounds heavier?

JR Howell (02:10):

Uh, I don’t think it needed to be because there weren’t that many people that did it unbroken and Tia could have if she would’ve needed to, but it’s not like everyone was doing it unbroken. A lot of people were breaking.

Sevan Matossian (02:23):

Let’s go over to the boys, uh, up and over sax and Patrick, no surprise. Justin Madera. Second place. No surprise. Ricky Gerard third place. No surprise. Sam will con quant, no surprise, but a confirmation. Uh he’s back, huh?

Taylor Self (02:44):

Yeah, he’s back. And I will say it was pretty crazy to watch Justin maybe enter that first round and maybe, uh, fourth or fifth or sixth potentially in the heat and then to close the gap and, and finish in second was pretty cool.

Sevan Matossian (02:58):

Um, are can, can we, um, say, make any conclusions or, or make any question? Uh, do we have any questions for, um, for, uh, pat, uh, ner <laugh>? Is, is it still too early?

Taylor Self (03:12):

Still too early? Yeah. It’s early.

Sevan Matossian (03:14):

Okay. Hold on one second. Look at this. This is like a no, oh shit. Where is that? This is a no rep. Uh,

Andrew Hiller (03:20):

Can you grab a picture please? So, yeah.

Sevan Matossian (03:23):

So this is a, the Nore meetup in front of the noble booth.

Mattew Souza (03:27):

It’s fucking nuts.

Taylor Self (03:30):

That’s crazy. Hey, this is

Sevan Matossian (03:33):

Shit. A politically homeless shirt.

Taylor Self (03:36):

I got one wearing mine too.

Sevan Matossian (03:38):

That dude has no business wearing his shirt. I’m glad he had it off. He should just carry it around

Mattew Souza (03:44):

To meet you.

Sevan Matossian (03:44):

Nice to meet you. Wow. Wow. It’s a real move. They hung a no rep sign on. Oh, are we live? Goodness. We are live. We are live

Andrew Hiller (03:55):

On 3, 1, 2, 3.

Sevan Matossian (04:02):

Do we only have one camera? We don’t have.

Taylor Self (04:09):

That’s amazing.

Mattew Souza (04:14):

You guys right now.

Sevan Matossian (04:19):

Second time I wished I’d be there. Wow. That is so cool.

Mattew Souza (04:26):

What two, three

Sevan Matossian (04:31):

Go Colton on three.

Taylor Self (04:33):

Everybody do whatever Hiller tells you to do on three. I

Andrew Hiller (04:36):

Send you guys as I can. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (04:41):

Awesome. Uh, SU tell us exactly what’s going on here, buddy?

Taylor Self (04:46):

Yeah. Noble.

Mattew Souza (04:47):

Is he all? So this is the, uh, no rev rally officially.

Sevan Matossian (04:53):

I like what you do with the sleeves.

Andrew Hiller (04:56):

It is nuts.

Sevan Matossian (04:59):

Uh, so tell us again, what’s going on there SU

Mattew Souza (05:03):

So this is the, uh, no rep rally here as I’ve I’ve dumped it. And uh, Andrew’s just hanging out. Bunch of people are just coming by saying hi, shaking his hands. And um, I think he started a movement on accident. I don’t know what’s happening.

Sevan Matossian (05:15):

So he’s just basically taking the piss out of the noble people cuz they, um, gave him the cease and desist on the shirt

Mattew Souza (05:21):

Not doing right. Yeah. So we’re here right in part of the, uh, noble booth or whatever it is. And uh, and security is uh, hot on our heels.

Sevan Matossian (05:34):

Oh no shit are, they really is security really there

Taylor Self (05:38):

Are they trying to break that up?

Sevan Matossian (05:40):

That would be fucking awesome. What are they afraid? You guys are gonna run in and um, Hey are the CrossFit games like California? You can steal as much shit as you want. As long as it’s under 950 bucks. Wow. And no red flag

Mattew Souza (06:00):

<laugh> yeah, yeah. Yeah. It’s all free. As long as it’s under a thousand dollars.

Sevan Matossian (06:06):

I never, uh, David arsenal, I never agreed with Taylor more than the anger over the arm touching event with Hiller in the last segment,

Taylor Self (06:12):

It was such a dickhead move. It was like calling somebody, buddy was like, okay buddy. I was like, all right, you don’t have to touch his arm. I’m still emotional about that. I’ll back off.

Sevan Matossian (06:25):

Hey Dave paid five bucks to see you get emotional again. That was good. Okay. Okay. Good stuff. All right. Uh, we will mute that and then come back over here. Um, uh, back to pat Vener so, so what’s going on with, uh, Patrick? Vener

Taylor Self (06:45):

It’s tough to say. I think it’s early one. Uh, two, he isn’t, he is not looking like himself it’s early, but he is not looking like himself.

Sevan Matossian (06:53):

So, so, so we could have said that about Tia, but it was premature and it was just people who didn’t have experience watching the CrossFit games and you need a bunch of workouts to go by. And I guess, so the question is, is have enough workouts gone by, um, should we write pat off?

Taylor Self (07:08):

Let’s wait till tonight, but, and, and writing him off, I think is a very strong statement.

Sevan Matossian (07:13):

What are we gonna say? Did he get old? Did the other guys get better? Is he sick? Did he not? Did the kid get to him? Do you have an excuse ready for him?

Taylor Self (07:22):

It might be the vaccine.

Mattew Souza (07:24):


Sevan Matossian (07:26):

I’m open.

Mattew Souza (07:27):


Sevan Matossian (07:27):

I know I’m open. Um, uh, Trish as back with the sweet comments. Um, this is the lady who took the 15 pound, uh, 15 inch deuce earlier. I will wipe my Badi. Wow. Wow. On a noble shirt for Hiller the fuck. I’m not even sure what the

Mattew Souza (07:46):

<laugh> Caleb,

Sevan Matossian (07:52):

Caleb, we’re gonna need the urban dictionary. I swear to God. I have no idea what

Mattew Souza (07:55):

That is. I’m gonna, you don’t know what that is, but

Sevan Matossian (08:00):

No. Should I? I didn’t play, I didn’t play, uh, college basketball. I didn’t hear shit like that.

Mattew Souza (08:06):

How did they all know what it, you should know what it is.

Sevan Matossian (08:08):

Yes, the bud Doy,

Taylor Self (08:11):

But pussy.

Sevan Matossian (08:12):

How is there a bud pussy? What’s the bud Doy,

Mattew Souza (08:15):


Sevan Matossian (08:15):

Doy. I mean, I understand it looks like it’s a combination of some words.

Taylor Self (08:19):

Oh my gosh.

Sevan Matossian (08:20):

Uh, Caleb, are you looking that one up for us? Thank you. I appreciate this is nuts. Okay. Um, uh, and, and, and the rest of the big, uh, Bucci is the pungent odor of three

Mattew Souza (08:32):


Sevan Matossian (08:35):

Holy shit. Buti is the pungent odor of three combined sources. The, but the Dick and the pussy that’s too crass. It is the anus, the penis and the vagina. The odors were routinely caused by vigorous sexual activity, using all three sources at once. Uh, it’s also accompanied by sweaty humid room atmosphere. Oh, I’m in big trouble. God, I hope my mom’s not watching.

Taylor Self (09:01):

Tr is more foul than me.

Sevan Matossian (09:04):

The, um, wait, let me use it in a sentence here real quick. They have a, they have a sentence, dude. Do you have that? Oh my God. Okay. Uh, our final, uh, use of the word Buti there, there are swingers they’re swingers. Their apartment always smells like Badi. All right. Wow. All right. Fine. Well, thank you. I don’t know how you squeeze that into his show about the, uh, CrossFit 2022 CrossFit games. I forget, but, um, okay. Oh, he’s gonna wipe his shirt with one of those. Okay. I’m awake. Um, so, so, so here in, in, in, in the boys department though, the big boys are hanging, right? Uh, uh, Patrick did do, uh, he did get an eighth, uh, col ser got a seventh. BJO Carl, Goodmanson got a sixth and Noah Olson got a fifth. Um, uh, and, and how about Enrico? Zon? Uh, winning his heat.

Taylor Self (09:55):

That was a surprise. He smacked it,

Sevan Matossian (09:59):

Uh, Jeffrey Adler, uh, overall looks like he’s in four. Have they updated the men yet? Uh, helping.

Mike Halpin (10:07):

Yeah. Yeah. The, the men’s scores are updated. Its the women’s scores that are still behind.

Sevan Matossian (10:12):

Oh, okay. Can you, can we look at the men’s leaderboard and look at the overall ranking

Taylor Self (10:17):

OWS. He’s not doing so hot either.

Sevan Matossian (10:20):

Okay. Yeah.

Speaker 8 (10:23):


Sevan Matossian (10:30):

Oh my goodness. I love, I love Haley so much. So this hurts when I say this, but she’s unfortunately going to be the female Dan Bailey. I don’t know. I think she’s significantly better than Dan already her and she’s only 21. So, so

Taylor Self (10:45):


Sevan Matossian (10:47):

Uh, what do you think about that help and what, what, what, what as, as an athlete with, uh, success in accolades at the CrossFit games, isn’t Hailey, uh, Adams, more successful CrossFit games athlete than, um, than the, um, I was gonna say the good dudes guy, but he’s not good dudes anymore. What is he known for now?

Taylor Self (11:04):

God’s country coffee.

Sevan Matossian (11:05):

Yeah. God’s country coffee.

Mike Halpin (11:07):

Hmm. I don’t know. I think she still has plenty of time.

Sevan Matossian (11:11):

Yeah. But do you think that she’s already surpassed him in terms of her success?

Mike Halpin (11:18):

I think well, to, to take a phrase from CrossFits documentaries, I think a lot of people are jumping into the sport now as far as spectating and a lot relative. But um, and uh, I think a lot of people just focus on Haley, especially on the female side and it’s maybe not comparable,

Sevan Matossian (11:41):

Not comparable.

Mike Halpin (11:43):

I don’t

Sevan Matossian (11:43):

Know. So you’re saying Dan Bailey

Mike Halpin (11:45):

Between Dan and

Sevan Matossian (11:46):

Who had more fucking finishes higher up in the games is what I’m asking. Damn. Yeah.

Mike Halpin (11:50):

Actual number,

Sevan Matossian (11:52):

Um, a number

Mike Halpin (11:57):

I think Haley

Sevan Matossian (11:58):

Good me too. Good answer. Right answer. That was the only right answer. Uh, and someone said, Brent, Frankowski struggling. He’s all the way down at 22nd place. Even though he took a 14th in that event, uh, just to put in perspective where Frankowski is at, he has 303 points and Ricky ARD has 655.

Taylor Self (12:16):

Mm it’s not good. It’s not looking good for Brent.

Mike Halpin (12:23):

Yeah. I don’t I’ve I’ve looked, tried to look at that a couple ways over the last few years of like what, what is the points and sort of the point of no return when it’s like this far into,

Sevan Matossian (12:36):

Well, maybe here’s maybe here’s another way to look at it. Ricky Gerard is now in control of his own fucking destiny. He, if, if he, if he does, if, if he, I mean, it can’t be taken from him if he, if, if he can somehow fight everyone off, if he took seconds, the rest of the, uh, events, what, and, and, and Justin Maderas took first that, and, and there were, uh, 5, 6, 7 more, seven more events. That’s only 21 points. Right. Cause it’s only three points. It separates first and second

Taylor Self (13:07):

Mm-hmm <affirmative>.

Sevan Matossian (13:08):

Yeah. I mean, Ricky can basically basically take a fourth on every event from here on out and still win it a fifth.

Taylor Self (13:15):

He’s gotta have some, some pretty colossal stumbles in order for him to lose it at this point

Sevan Matossian (13:20):

Or just one. He just needs one big one, like a 35th. He needs a 35th. Right.

Taylor Self (13:25):

He needs a 35th and a couple mediocre finishes. And if he has one 35th and the rest, he does 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, he’s gonna be okay. I think whatever happens, uh, is good for the sport. Good for CrossFit potentially.

Sevan Matossian (13:43):

Uh, Mike, uh, um, Halpin what’s the lowest, uh, Ricky ever took at, um, the CrossFit games in 2017, his lowest, uh, finish.

Mike Halpin (13:52):

Uh, oh, actually I got that up, uh, 32nd in I’ll have to look at the event, but he took a 32nd later.

Sevan Matossian (14:00):

Yeah. I, I would, I would be curious, uh, to see what that event is. Uh, Travis Mayer got the most attention I’ve ever seen him get from all other conve, uh, events combined in his last 10 years. He got more camera time on that run and people were upset that they were just showing one guy, well, if they were only gonna show one guy couldn’t have happened to a better guy. Uh, and I, and, and he deserves it. Good job, Travis. Uh, second thing, it was an open course. It was an open course. And I think we, I talked about that a little bit with Adrian yesterday, which I thought was really cool. Um, I’m, I’m surprised that the only two coaches I saw on the course where Adlers and, uh, Samuel Kwan and, uh, Amanda Barnhart’s, uh, the great Ben Eron on the run. Say that again

Taylor Self (14:51):

On the, on the running event.

Sevan Matossian (14:52):

Yeah, it was an open course. And I’m just surprised there weren’t more people on there. Uh, you know, on the course.

Mike Halpin (14:59):

Yeah. Like it’s, it’s, it’s curious cuz they could almost have Pacers if

Sevan Matossian (15:02):

They wanted to. Right, right. And Adler and Adler’s wife and coach was running. I don’t know if she was pacing them, but she was running. I think Sean Woodland did use that term

Taylor Self (15:13):

Pacing. Wow.

Sevan Matossian (15:14):

Is this live right here? Okay. Let’s

Speaker 9 (15:49):

Task you’re 3, 4, 6, 6.

Taylor Self (16:34):

He doesn’t have it. That’s fucking hard.

Sevan Matossian (16:39):

Do they have to be wall facing? Yes.

Speaker 9 (17:15):

One more time on the top 30 10.

Sevan Matossian (17:22):

Oh, let’s keep watching. Let’s keep watching a little bit, but this is good with the thank you Jordan. Can we keep watching

Taylor Self (17:27):

Their shoulders and triceps are already fucked.

Sevan Matossian (17:30):

Let’s keep watching the thank you. Okay guys. Uh, Adrian Bosman just announced, um, what looks like the event that will happen today at, uh, 5:00 PM central time. And there it is. Thank you to Jordan Vance. Uh, 30 calories, 10 wall facing handstand pushups, 20 calories on the assault bike. 10, uh, 10 wall facing handstand pushups. Uh, 20, uh, calories on the assault bike again. 10, I thought the wall facing handstand pushups were going up. No. Did anyone else think that

Taylor Self (18:34):

Going up?

Sevan Matossian (18:36):

Uh, like it was a larger number to do every time. Did anyone else see that? No. Like more reps. I thought it was 10, 20, 30

Taylor Self (18:45):

Of the bike.

Sevan Matossian (18:46):

Oh, okay. But not for, I thought that what I heard and I’m sure I heard it wrong. I thought I heard that the handstand pushups were going up and the calories on the bike were going down.

Taylor Self (18:55):

Is this posted on the game site yet?

Sevan Matossian (18:57):

All right, well fuck it. Then what do I know? Uh, Ginga ninja the wall facing handstand pushups. Again seemed to be blurry line between fitness and party tricks would like to hear Taylor and Jr’s thoughts. Taylor.

Taylor Self (19:08):

Uh, I don’t think it’s a blurred line between fitness and party tricks. I would’ve preferred to have seen maybe a strict para. Um, I don’t know. We’ll have to see how the event plays out. Anytime something new comes along, there’s gonna be a lot of people who call it a gimmick. There’s gonna be a lot of people who are like, ah, I don’t know. And then when you see it happening in the workout, you see it performed, it changes minds and, and the workout will tell, I think this progression and making handstand pushups harder is necessary. Um, I’m just not sure what the visuals gonna look like. We’ll see.

Sevan Matossian (19:45):

Uh, I don’t understand. I don’t see it as a gimmick at all.

Taylor Self (19:48):

No, no for sure.

Mike Halpin (19:49):

The, uh, the teams had something similar announced. So it looks, if you wanna show the team page,

Sevan Matossian (19:56):

Uh, seven, when is the last time a non-American male won the CF games. Ricky might break the decade streak helping.

Taylor Self (20:04):


Mike Halpin (20:05):

When’s the last time you won? Sorry. I was reading the team page.

Sevan Matossian (20:08):

When’s the last time a transgender has won the games at the CrossFit games. No, no. Sorry. Uh, different that won’t question. Won’t be come up for another 10 years. When’s the last time a non-American male has, uh, won the CrossFit games. Miko

Taylor Self (20:23):

Miko Salo.

Sevan Matossian (20:24):

Is that really

Taylor Self (20:25):

A male

Mike Halpin (20:27):

Male. Wow.

Sevan Matossian (20:28):


Taylor Self (20:29):

It’s pretty crazy.

Sevan Matossian (20:30):

Yeah. Super crazy. And now, and it’s gonna be an Australian, basically an American

Taylor Self (20:37):

Or, or a Russian. How far? It’s,

Sevan Matossian (20:39):

It’s just a, it’s just a jailed American. Uh, what is going on with gee? We’re just completely out of his wheelhouse. Is that what’s going on with uh, Mr.

Taylor Self (20:49):

Guillermo? No, I think last year was so completely in his wheelhouse.

Sevan Matossian (20:54):

Yeah. Okay. He’s sitting in 24th place, but that last workout, he got 25th on. So he is not doing himself any favors.

Taylor Self (21:00):

Well, I think we’ve known that his motor and his classic CrossFit is not the best, but where he excels our one rep max list, really short, high power outburst events. Um, he’s just not getting that this year. This would be a good opportunity for him to showcase it. There’s a really hard bike. Um, and he tends to do pretty well on some gymnastics. So we’ll see.

Sevan Matossian (21:21):

I don’t E I don’t understand this workout.

Taylor Self (21:25):

What do you not understand?

Sevan Matossian (21:27):

It’s like so few calories on the assault bike.

Taylor Self (21:29):

Yeah. To, to push them.

Sevan Matossian (21:31):

Okay. And then, I mean, how, how long is that? Is, is someone just gonna blast through that? Unbroke is someone gonna do that in sub three sub two?

Taylor Self (21:39):

No, no. The workout, no way. No. I think the fastest times will be, let’s see, 3, 2, 1 go 30 Cal on the assault bike. 10, 20 Cal 10, 10, Cal 10, and then another 30 calorie. So you’ve got 90 calories on the echo bike and then 30 wall facing strict handstand pushups. I think the fastest anyone’s gonna go is, is sub six.

Sevan Matossian (22:05):

And, and will there be time cap?

Taylor Self (22:08):

Let’s see, I would imagine an eight or a nine minute time cap. And then even that might be aggressive.

Sevan Matossian (22:14):

And it was the same amount of handstand pushups for the men and the women, but the women had fewer calories,

Taylor Self (22:20):

I believe so. And their deficit might be a little smaller.

Sevan Matossian (22:24):

Me guessing two or three minutes was like, um, Jason Hopper saying had 0% body

Taylor Self (22:30):

<laugh>, but then Hiller confirmed that he did the old pinch test.

Sevan Matossian (22:36):

Oh yes. That’s true. That’s true.

Mike Halpin (22:40):

Yeah. I only see the team one about this so far and it doesn’t, it’s hard to say comparatively between the two, like the teams when they have to keep the handstand, hold on the wall while the other team, while the other team members row or through the echo book.

Taylor Self (22:57):

Uh, the cap is 10 for men, 12 for women.

Sevan Matossian (23:00):

Uh, I is, is, um, okay. Thank you. Is, uh, is let’s go over to the teams really quick. Is, are the mayhem crew in first place now? I heard they, they crushed that last workout.

Taylor Self (23:11):

They beat everybody by quite the margin. I don’t know that they’re in first.

Sevan Matossian (23:16):

How do I do that? I go to division team.

Mike Halpin (23:18):

Yeah, they’re in first by about six points.

Sevan Matossian (23:24):

Okay. But it is, it is an incredibly close competition. Right? We got CrossFit, mayhem, freedom, and first CrossFit Invictus, and second CrossFit, Oslo, Navy blue, and third, holy cow. And then we have Angelo’s team right in fourth place.

Mike Halpin (23:40):


Sevan Matossian (23:41):

Oh, Susie got an OG hat. Did you see that?

Mike Halpin (23:44):


Taylor Self (23:46):


Sevan Matossian (23:46):

Oh, and he got a B friendly shirt.

Taylor Self (23:50):

What’s that? For

Sevan Matossian (23:51):

Where the swag you got that’s for Brian friend. It’s cause

Taylor Self (23:54):

Is that really? He’s got his own shirt from where?

Sevan Matossian (23:56):

Yeah. I, uh, someone a Sherpa, a Sherpa place. I just heard the word Sherpa makes it for him. I don’t know if that’s a clothing brand or what, but it’s actually a pretty cool shirt. It has a picture of him, like with his beard on the back and then, uh, and then it says be friendly.

Taylor Self (24:12):

He’s not very friendly.

Sevan Matossian (24:13):

It’s very clever. <laugh>, that’s why it’s so perfect. Uh, CrossFit. Okay. So these guys are kind of in a league of their own with the teams. Oh, and Raco Vixen fifth. How did they do, what has, has Lauren’s injury been exposed yet? Did they do a workout with muscle ups?

Taylor Self (24:34):

They, yeah, the last workout had muscle ups and she did fine apparently.

Sevan Matossian (24:37):

Okay. And they’re in third. They, they got, well, they got third

Taylor Self (24:40):

Outta that. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (24:42):

Um, so, so, but they did have a, uh, they got a 30th and uh, oh

Taylor Self (24:49):

No, that was in Elizabeth. She couldn’t do the dips last night.

Sevan Matossian (24:53):

Oh, she couldn’t

Taylor Self (24:54):

Or Wednesday night. Sorry.

Sevan Matossian (24:57):

That, and that was, uh, um, Lauren couldn’t do ’em. Yeah, because of her injury.

Taylor Self (25:01):

I, I don’t think it was because of the injury. I don’t think she knew how to tip the dip or at least they were yelling at her to keep the dip and she wasn’t doing it.

Sevan Matossian (25:09):


Mike Halpin (25:09):

Well, you thought it was lats, right? I mean, if it’s shoulder that could

Sevan Matossian (25:13):

Play at first, I thought it was shoulder. Then I was told, um, by someone, uh, that it was LA. And then I think she, I think she actually made a video where she said she heard something in here snap or felt something snap. I think that’s the exact, I think that’s verbatim. Um, I think that’s verbatim snap. Oh, here we go. OG, uh, get with, okay. So, um, uh, Sherpa works is the name of the shirt company, and it’s where OG, uh, the OG shirts come from also, uh, get with the programming. Oh, they might even be making, okay. They might even be making those shirts, um, get with the program. You may have decided to make those for Brian, uh, Taylor, Mike Halpin, uh, Ryan Sanless. And I’m confused why Gabby Manawa did so poorly in that last,

Taylor Self (26:02):

The gymnastics cap. We were talking a little bit about, uh, Laura and Gabby prior to the event starting last week when Boz was discussing which modalities or hinting at which modalities the sport was gonna be taking steps forward in. And, uh, me and Jr both kind of touched a little bit on maybe a slight amount of worry for both Laura and Gabby, because they have such massive gymnastic deficits in comparison to some of the other top females, Laura, specifically with handstand pushups, which may be exposed in this next event and Gabby specifically with upper body pulling, which makes sense why she was exposed in this last event with the muscle ups.

Sevan Matossian (26:40):

Oh, uh, what, what you mean may be exposed Laura’s toast, right?

Taylor Self (26:47):

Uh, odds are she’s toast in this next

Sevan Matossian (26:51):

Lookout, like really bad, like bottom 10.

Taylor Self (26:54):

Uh, there’s a chance of that. I don’t want to go out and say, she’s gonna be bottom 10, but there’s a chance.

Sevan Matossian (26:59):

It’s a lot, it’s a lot to ask of her.

Taylor Self (27:02):

She’s not gonna do well in this workout. And if she does, I would be very surprised and I’ll eat fucking Crow. I don’t want her to do poorly. So I don’t want people to mistake what I’m saying for that. I just, you know, history says she’s not gonna do very well and no, you cannot Kip the wall facing they’re strict,

Sevan Matossian (27:22):

Uh, Beil, ah, mod K thought I made that name up. Right. Uh, I did not. Laura will place bottom five. Uh, okay. Let’s go back up to the top. Um, who wins that workout in the female? Let’s go with the, um, man, that’s all brain and no heart Mike Halpin.

Speaker 8 (27:40):


Mike Halpin (27:42):

Who wins that for the females?

Sevan Matossian (27:44):

Um, yeah. Tia Mao, Emma Lawson, Hailey Adams, Daniel, Brandon car Saunders, Bailey rail, or, or does fuss handstand pushups make up for the struggle she might have on the bike? Or is it time for Alexis Raptors to shine?

Taylor Self (28:03):

None of the above.

Sevan Matossian (28:04):


Taylor Self (28:04):

Go ahead. Hurry up Mike. 3, 2, 1 go.

Sevan Matossian (28:07):

You <laugh>

Mike Halpin (28:09):

He, as in first, she’s got her own

Sevan Matossian (28:10):

Leadership. Uh, Danny Spiegel, Mike Halpin goes with Danny Spiegel. Brave choice, buddy. <laugh> I think you’re little, uh, biased,

Taylor Self (28:17):


Sevan Matossian (28:18):

Too much on. I

Mike Halpin (28:21):


Taylor Self (28:23):

I got mal. She won the wall walk thruster workout last year. She has a great pressing capacity and I think she’s very, very good on the echo bike. They spend a lot of time on it.

Sevan Matossian (28:35):

Uh, and um, how many heats will this be done in probably 3, 4, 4,

Taylor Self (28:40):

I think four heats

Sevan Matossian (28:41):

Four heats. Okay. Uh, Mike, did you, uh, do you have a, a guess?

Mike Halpin (28:47):

I’m just wondering how, how much the machine work may even it out for Laura, but she may just be stuck on the wall for

Taylor Self (28:52):

The whole time. It’s not gonna even it out enough. She’s not that much better on the machines than if, if at all than Tia or mal on the bike, specifically on the rower and the skier, you could give her an edge, but on, on the echo bike, Tia and mal are as good as he gets in the female field.

Sevan Matossian (29:10):

I’m giving it to Emma Lawson.

Taylor Self (29:13):

We’ll see. I’m I’m taking mal.

Sevan Matossian (29:16):

Uh, and if mal does win this, she will go first place. Oh, here we go. Hold on. Let’s check in with these guys. What are these guys doing?

Speaker 8 (29:27):


Sevan Matossian (29:30):

What’s going on, boys.

Taylor Self (29:32):

Matt Sue is giving out signatures. Holy shit. Wow. You took them to the top Seon.

Sevan Matossian (29:42):

I just love this. I, you cannot, this just brings happiness to my ear, to, to my, to my happiness, to my ears, to my heart, to my B uh, bocci <laugh> Springs, half just brings happiness. I just.
