Sevan Matossian (00:03):
Bam. We’re live. Jason, Caleb.
Jason Grubb (00:04):
Hey. How are you guys
Sevan Matossian (00:07):
Living the dream, buddy. Someone else’s nightmare, but my little corner. It’s definitely someone’s dream. I saw a comment in your Bruce Wayne made that I need to address. Where is that Brucey That turned out to be a great podcast that turned out when you saw my face, you knew it was a good podcast.
Jason Grubb (00:32):
Sevan Matossian (00:35):
One of the most stoked individuals I’ve ever met in my life. Kayla Beaver continues to be on the show every morning. Smiles 3000 times more than JR Howell, but still pretty stoic. And Jason Grub, maybe the nicest man in CrossFit. Hi. What’s up dude?
Jason Grubb (00:50):
<laugh>, Appreciate it. How are you? I’m
Sevan Matossian (00:52):
Cool. God, you’re cool. Every time I go to your Instagram I’m like, He is so sweet. He is so positive.
Jason Grubb (01:00):
I try to keep it that way. I mean,
Sevan Matossian (01:02):
You’re a good dude. Yeah,
Jason Grubb (01:03):
Sevan Matossian (01:04):
Yeah, it feels good to go to your account.
Jason Grubb (01:07):
Sevan Matossian (01:08):
When I hear you talk, I’m like, Oh, this is gonna make me feel better. No matter what he says, You’re not, You’re never like me. You’re never complaining about the lack of compassion of humanity. You assholes like, Wait, I have a little bit of compassion. CrossFit Games. Champion again. When I spoke to you before the games, I wanna tell you that you sounded like you were like Oh, there’s a dude and there’s a guy, there’s this guy.
Jason Grubb (01:40):
Sevan Matossian (01:42):
I bet you did it.
Jason Grubb (01:43):
I did it. The guy made me nervous. His name’s Vlad. He’s from Belarus.
Sevan Matossian (01:52):
Ah, let me just throw something. I don’t think this is racist. This is countrys. But yeah, with a name like Vlad, culturally, I get a little shivers. I see some sort of Jason born movie. Yes. He’d have one fake eye or something and he’s like analyzing shit on the field.
Jason Grubb (02:08):
Am I gonna get get Sniped out there?
Sevan Matossian (02:10):
Right? Right. He’s gonna be a wall ball event and he’s gonna unscrew his arms and put on his wall ball arms
Jason Grubb (02:17):
And then you meet him and the only thing that reveals anything is his accent. Other than that, he’s a gentle giant just great guy. But the games, I was nervous. I always have a target on my back now after a couple of wins. And so going into the third win, I’m a year older and I’ve got VLA aging up into my division and I just don’t know exactly what he’s capable of in person. And I train it. I follow CrossFit Mayhem programming or Mayhem athlete. I’m actually in Cookville right now in their conference room
Sevan Matossian (02:59):
Across, Oh, how cool.
Jason Grubb (03:00):
Yeah, the team is on the poster behind me. And so I could see what Vlad was doing day in and day out in training and just killing it on the little leaderboard and yeah, I was just, wasn’t sure. So I got to the games and the first two events went like, okay, I got second place in the first event, which was running and rope climbs. It was an event I thought I would win but I got second. So I was concerned. And then the next event was,
Sevan Matossian (03:31):
So right off the bat it was kind of going the way you thought. Who took first?
Jason Grubb (03:35):
Mike Kern. Okay. Won that event. Yeah.
Sevan Matossian (03:39):
At least it wasn’t Vlad.
Jason Grubb (03:40):
It wasn’t Vlad, but Vlad was third. He was right there. He was right on my tail. And then the second event was Max effort work. Yeah, there is. So that’s me. Mike Turn got second, Vlad got third. And that was predictable. I figured this is what it would look like. I just didn’t know exactly who would be standing where on that podium right there. Second Event, I got fourth place. Now Mike Kern and VLA are both shuffling that top position. Then I won five events in a row
Sevan Matossian (04:14):
Jason Grubb (04:15):
Secured the win before the final event. So the final event was a bit of a victory lap. I just had to not look silly out there. Just get the work done and yeah, I’m ready for next year.
Sevan Matossian (04:31):
So the master at the games is eight events.
Jason Grubb (04:34):
Yeah, it was great.
Sevan Matossian (04:36):
Hey, is that dude? Is that dude Caleb? Mike. Mike. Is it with a K?
Jason Grubb (04:42):
Sevan Matossian (04:42):
Is that the guy that Hiller had the run in with
Caleb Beaver (04:46):
That name Sounds familiar. I think
Sevan Matossian (04:49):
It might have been. We were live and they chatted it out cuz Mike Hiller. I don’t know if that’s him. I shouldn’t say that. Cause I don’t want anything to stick to Mike if it’s not him. Sure.
Jason Grubb (04:58):
Caleb Beaver (04:59):
I look at him again, I don’t think it was
Sevan Matossian (05:00):
Him. That’s a big dude.
Jason Grubb (05:02):
Yes. He’s huge, right?
Sevan Matossian (05:04):
Jason Grubb (05:04):
He’s huge and strong in,
Sevan Matossian (05:07):
He looks like a model. And he looks like a body building model. Look at him. Yeah,
Jason Grubb (05:13):
He’s a monster.
Sevan Matossian (05:14):
And he is not happy with second look at him. He can’t even put his arm, He can’t even put his arms down.
Jason Grubb (05:20):
No. Cause buy by things are huge. I’ve gotten in his way at first a couple of times. So this was first and second this year. First and second last year as well.
Sevan Matossian (05:32):
What’s up with the tat on your arm? What is that? Is that a forest?
Jason Grubb (05:35):
It is a forest, yep. Just one of the sleeve five, six years ago and found a guy in Denver Chunk Garcia, and he did this forest up my arm into mountains on my shoulder. And I get a lot of compliments. I mean, almost daily if I’m at a coffee shop or a grocery store or something someone will come up and like that. And it turned out great. And it just came from a lot of time in the back country of Colorado. I like to backpack and fly fish back there just, it just made sense to get this sleep. And when you’re in CrossFit, you have to have tattoos. It’s just part of the, It’s on the checklist of things that you have to do.
Sevan Matossian (06:22):
Amont, roller ball, tattoo, electrolytes. Mike Kern is from New York, not the guy Hillary ran into. Okay, thank you. And what’s it say here on your arm?
Jason Grubb (06:33):
It says I will love you my whole life, you and no weather, which is just a quote that I quote from Braveheart when that was their marriage vow on Braveheart and just thought that was beautiful.
Sevan Matossian (06:49):
I like it. I’m okay with it. I do have a bias against tattoos. I’m softening in my old. Really? Really? Yeah. Yeah, yeah. I’ve had some long rants in here that tattoos are a sign of mental illness.
Jason Grubb (07:05):
<laugh>. Well, I’m not denying mental illness.
Sevan Matossian (07:08):
<laugh> a good dude, Jason. You’re a good dude. But they, just to address that and not because you’re on here is, I think it is. The human brain is fascinating and people have thoughts and they react to their thoughts. And that’s how the vast majority of the world operates, which isn’t a problem. But also within that vast majority of the world, they don’t realize they’re reacting to their thoughts. They think they are reacting to the outside world. <affirmative>, they do an analysis. So when you ask someone why they gotta marking your body with a permanent mark, I would like to see someone sit with that for a while and ask themselves. I had someone on the show the other day ask you do the seven whys <affirmative>, Why do I want this tattoo? Well, because I think it would be cool. Well, why do you think it would be cool? And spend some time drilling down to find out what the initial seed was as deep as you can, where that idea came from to put a permanent mark on the body. And I think that in some ways, if you were in the Olympics and you wanted the Olympic rings or you were three times CrossFit games champion, or you finished buds and you’re a seal, or you know, did 20 years in jail and you want to get, or you killed someone, fuck it. I’m all for the teardrop. Get that shit. Let us know.
So that’s my little shtick on tattoos. I think they’re pretty profound in concept and idea.
Jason Grubb (09:05):
Well, and I feel like for me, I got lucky that I have, it is, it’s a permanent piece of clothing. It’s a permanent thing on my arm. And I really sat on it for a long time. I just wanted one. And if we dig down into the multiple whys, which I was kind of doing in my head when you said the seven whys, and it probably at some point in its initial iteration, I wanted to be in some way accepted or I wanted to belong. I mean, there’s probably something deep down in my core that has to do with an identity or some sense of belonging.
Sevan Matossian (09:42):
And there isn’t a wrong why. There isn’t a wrong why.
Jason Grubb (09:44):
No. And it could have turned out that I get of quite a few ideas and then I end up getting an idea that made some sense. And it was almost like that. It wasn’t like I spent 36 days in the back country, so I got this tattoo to remember. It just, I found a guy that could said he could do it and I did it. And it can be scary territory right there until it was finalized. And it was something that like, okay, yeah, I can live with this. Thank God, thank God I can live with this. But I definitely have no idea if I would do it again or if I’ll ever add anything else.
Sevan Matossian (10:24):
Oh, interesting. When I worked at CrossFit, there was a I guess a famous tattoo artist who was a CrossFitter and he had tattooed a lot of people. I think he had done Spieler and Matt Chan and Jordan Grava, one of the filmmakers there went out to film him. And I said, Hey, when you go out there, ask him if he regrets getting his tattoos. And I think Jordan thought it was a crazy question, but he asked him, Hey, you’re regret getting your tattoos? And the guys covered in tattoos, right? And he said, Yeah, if I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t have a single tattoo. And I was like, Wow. Fascinating. I’m looking at Tupac tattoos. Cause I always admired his tattoos. I always thought that that thug life on his stomach was just so dope. I thought it was just incredible. And he lived by the sword and died by the sword.
Jason Grubb (11:15):
Yes, he did.
Sevan Matossian (11:16):
Yeah. Isn’t cool, but it is, I what the word is, continuity there. How many competitions, This might be hard digging into memory bank, but your first year you won the games. How many competitions did you do that season?
Jason Grubb (11:37):
I think I did two that season. There was in Colorado where I was at,
Sevan Matossian (11:44):
Including the games. It was two
Jason Grubb (11:46):
Including the games. There was a big competition in Colorado called the Turkey Challenge. And it’s in November sometime. That might have, I’m pretty sure I did that the year prior to qualifying for the game. So I mean, it really rolled into the 2018 season. And I competed with didn’t compete in the master’s division. I was always in between for a couple of years there as in that I am a master’s athlete, but it wasn’t competitive for me in the master’s divisions of local competitions. So I would bump up and then have my ass handed to me by 20 year olds. But I did that
Sevan Matossian (12:27):
Some 16 year old kid that’s been doing crosses for, Yeah, he’s got
Jason Grubb (12:31):
These, There’s times where I just can’t believe how fast they are. I felt like I was a fit human being. And then going into the 2018 open it was a little, it’s by third attempt. So I tried to get to the games at 40 and I thought I was fit. I was really aiming for it as 40 year old. I was only two years in a CrossFit, but I really thought I could maybe make it didn’t. And then 41 I tried and after the age group qualifier of something in 70th place, somewhere around there. So I was just hoping at 42, this is my last shot in that age group that I could maybe sneak into the games. It just eed my way into that top 20 and get there.
Sevan Matossian (13:17):
What year was
Jason Grubb (13:18):
Sevan Matossian (13:20):
Jason Grubb (13:21):
I qualified in 17th after the A G O Q video reviews. I bumped up to 13th. And when I went to the games that year, I was mean, I was so nervous. It was the most nervous thing I’ve ever done. Of course arriving was, It was great.
Sevan Matossian (13:37):
Wait a second. Wait a second. In 2018, you went to the CrossFit games as an individual?
Jason Grubb (13:42):
No, no, no Masters.
Sevan Matossian (13:44):
Oh, okay. Okay, okay. Okay. Sorry, sorry, sorry. Okay.
Jason Grubb (13:46):
Yeah. Yeah. Masters I, it was so nervous being on that floor. And I would say that up until that point, I’d only competed in two or three local competitions. So this was a scale larger than anything I’d ever been experienced. And I’d gone to the games in 2017 to watch, but I was so mad that I didn’t qualify in 2017 that I didn’t even go watch the masters. I was just so salty about it. So I had an idea of what the games was like, and walking into that, it was overwhelming. And the first event, the amount of adrenaline jamming through my system had be just almost shaking on the starting line. It was a run into the obstacle course. Remember the obstacle course?
Sevan Matossian (14:33):
I do. They
Jason Grubb (14:34):
Had us do that in 2018. We had to do a 500 meter run into the obstacle course.
Sevan Matossian (14:41):
Is that the one where you had to jump on the rope and swing across? Yeah. And then at the very end you climb up into that tower. Yep.
Jason Grubb (14:46):
Okay. Yes. We did not finish with the, didn’t finish with the tower. We Okay. We finished. I can’t even remember how we finished, but we
Sevan Matossian (14:55):
Probably walked on those logs.
Jason Grubb (14:57):
Yeah, we did walk on the logs
Sevan Matossian (14:59):
And then crossed the finish line or something.
Jason Grubb (15:01):
It was wild.
Sevan Matossian (15:02):
Hey, was it freezing out there when you did it? Because I cannot. Okay. Cause it was below 30 degrees on the field when the individuals went, I think. Yes. It was fucking bizarre.
Jason Grubb (15:12):
I was there. I was watching that year the first year in Madison.
Sevan Matossian (15:16):
Right. I had three jackets on when I was on the field filming that. I’m not joking. Putting so cold. Everything. It was cold. It was so cold. My fingers were having trouble finessing the buttons on the camera. It was crazy. Yes. Don’t look at me, I’m a pussy, Caleb. I know what you’re doing.
Jason Grubb (15:29):
<laugh>. It was terrible.
Sevan Matossian (15:31):
Jay. I get my ass beat by a teenage girl at a local gym that I coached her when she was six. Yeah. That’s gonna be the story for a lot of people. These kids are nuts. That’s small, I think. And then in 2000 your second time at the games, how many events did you do in the off season? Do you remember?
Jason Grubb (15:51):
Sevan Matossian (15:52):
Okay. None. Yeah. None. And then in 2020, do you remember
Jason Grubb (15:56):
Right. So the games were canceled for us. We had no games because of Covid, but there was a legend
Sevan Matossian (16:03):
Correction because of Covid restrictions. Sorry.
Jason Grubb (16:05):
No, I’m on board. Completely
Sevan Matossian (16:07):
Agree. Okay, thank you. Just gotta be the dick. Okay, thank you. Yep.
Jason Grubb (16:10):
Then so the Legends Championship, which is the largest, I think one of the largest masters competitions was scheduled that year. And I registered for it. It’s huge. It’s a huge master’s only competition. And they still held it in Phoenix. They had people standing in circles
Sevan Matossian (16:31):
And I heard Covid killed 20% of the athletes at the event
Jason Grubb (16:35):
<laugh>. It was great. It was a great event. It was so that I did that since we’re moving forward from there. Yes. Oh, you know what I did in 2019? I did actually at the beginning of 2020, I competed in Waap Palooza for my first time. Wow.
Sevan Matossian (16:52):
Yeah. In 2020. Yes. So they didn’t cancel that.
Jason Grubb (16:56):
It was two weeks before the world shut down
Sevan Matossian (16:59):
Jason Grubb (17:01):
<laugh>. We were flying back on the plane from, and people had masks on and I just remember thinking, What’s going on? Come on that this is this thing. This is an overreaction. But yeah, we flew back and I mean the world shut down. Waap was two or three weeks before Lockdowns went that fast. It was insane. 2020, no games. I did legends. 2021 was Legends. And then the games again going into 2022 was, and then the games again. And I won all of those.
Sevan Matossian (17:47):
And this year, 2020 what? The games this year will be, we’re in 2022. Wait, so it’s 2023. It’ll be the 2023 game season is what we’re in.
Jason Grubb (18:02):
Sevan Matossian (18:03):
And this year you finished the games you won and now you’re heading into your first competition for the 2023 season, even though it’s still 2022.
Jason Grubb (18:13):
Yeah, I guess that’s how we would put it. Legends. The Legends Championship is at Mayhem in just a month. So I’ll actually be here in Cookville all the way through that competition.
Sevan Matossian (18:25):
Jason Grubb (18:27):
And it’s gonna be great. Gonna be really great. Where
Sevan Matossian (18:31):
Do you stay
Jason Grubb (18:33):
At a local RV like campground.
Sevan Matossian (18:37):
And are you solo?
Jason Grubb (18:38):
No Wife and kids and dogs.
Sevan Matossian (18:42):
And you guys come for a month?
Jason Grubb (18:44):
Sevan Matossian (18:45):
Oh, such a,
Jason Grubb (18:46):
We’ve been here for a month already, actually. So we live full-time in an rv. So from the games, we traveled to Ohio, then to DC then to the outer banks in North Carolina for a couple weeks. Charlotte went down to Augusta, Georgia for a half Ironman triathlon, which is a whole other story then to Cookville cuz I just wanted to see mayhem and trained here for a couple of weeks. So it started out at three weeks and then we just, I convinced everyone that we could change our plans and actually stay from whenever we got here the middle of October, all the way through the middle of December. And that’s it. It’s amazing to train here. I mean, for me, I’ve always been in a training environment where I am solo. I mean, one, I’m either solo or I’m training with others that aren’t push me, but we can sort gamify an event or workout and I can get a push. But training here with everywhere I look, and I don’t know everyone here, but everywhere I look here is a everyone’s games athlete. So I just have the conversation with someone and they’ll say, Ah, you want to tip, tip on your snatch? I was like, Yeah, gimme a tip. And I’ll look up on Instagram. That guy’s been to the games three times. I just didn’t know. So everyone here is pushing me. It’s pretty enjoyable here, but I can’t stay here forever. I’ve got, it’s getting cold.
Sevan Matossian (20:20):
And what about your day job? Do you sell programming or you do coaching? What is, Yeah. So you can do it from the road.
Jason Grubb (20:26):
Yeah, totally from the road. Oh good.
Sevan Matossian (20:30):
You figured out your life. This makes me so
Jason Grubb (20:32):
Happy. I can work three, four hours a day. I can train four hours a day. What
Sevan Matossian (20:37):
Do your kids do when you’re there?
Jason Grubb (20:39):
So they are homeschooled and recently,
Sevan Matossian (20:44):
How old are
Jason Grubb (20:45):
They? Nine and
Sevan Matossian (20:46):
Jason Grubb (20:47):
So mean the RV is parked in a forest. I mean, this campground is in a forest and it’s beautiful. So they have lots of toys. They do have iPads and an Xbox, but they have been significantly restricted from all of that. They did basically a sober October. Wow. Sober November. No, yeah. Sober October with no screen time whatsoever.
Sevan Matossian (21:12):
Jason Grubb (21:13):
Impressive. It was aggressive and
Sevan Matossian (21:16):
Jason Grubb (21:17):
They became alive. They went from heads down in their device all the time to carving spears in the forest and chopping down trees with an ax. We bought ’em things to go get dirty, get messy, and man, they thrived with that. So they play around and it here at Mayhem, they’ll come twice a week for a couple of kids classes, which is really fun. Really fun for them. That’s the, That’s it. That’s,
Sevan Matossian (21:48):
Oh my God, dude, you’re doing it. You’re living the dream. Does that campground have a shower?
Jason Grubb (21:53):
No, the RV has a
Sevan Matossian (21:55):
Shower and you’re hooked up to water and poop. And so you don’t even have to deal with any of that?
Jason Grubb (21:59):
None of it. None of
Sevan Matossian (22:00):
It. Oh my goodness. That
Jason Grubb (22:02):
Full electric mean it has with a star link on the rv. So I can have wherever on the planet I, I have internet. Cool.
Sevan Matossian (22:10):
Internet. How much is the Star link? Monthly.
Jason Grubb (22:13):
Sevan Matossian (22:15):
And that’s gig? Yeah, that’s like a regular. And does it find the satellites for you? Or Every time you park, you have to
Jason Grubb (22:22):
Set it up and you face it north and then it finds it just constantly to make sure it’s on satellites. And satellites. They move fast. The Starling satellites they move really fast. So I think about every 45 seconds, it’s changing to a new satellite that’s passing overhead. And the reason this morning that I’m in the Mayhem Conference room instead of the RV is that we’re in a forest and you have to have a line of sight. So about every 45 seconds, I have a glitch in my internet, which is fine if I’m uploading a YouTube video, it just doesn’t work with this, I would’ve looked like I was on dial up. But I can watch. Over the last week, I’ve been plowing through the final season of Better Call Solve, and it’s in full 4K in the middle of a forest with no cell reception. I can’t make a phone call unless I’m connected through wifi with the Star Link.
Sevan Matossian (23:20):
Yeah. What a cool setup. You’re doing it and it, man, that is really, And the kids are meeting friends in the campground.
Jason Grubb (23:29):
They do. And it, it’s a win lose for them. So they’re gotten really good at making instant friends and just playing with them
Sevan Matossian (23:38):
Because they’re gone every five days. Every five days it’s a new set of friends,
Jason Grubb (23:41):
New Weekend comes and there’s new kids and that sucks for them for sure. So this is maybe not sustainable forever potentially. Interestingly, they do have friends that they do connect with in Fortnite. So Fortnite is a social community for them. They play with a friend in Fortnite on the Xbox, but try to limit that. It makes for socialization to be a little bit trickier, but they’re nine and five, so we’re still young. At some point we’ll have to settle down and just move to Cookville and train here forever. It’s fine.
Sevan Matossian (24:20):
I didn’t know this. One of our listeners is Jamie Lair. I had no idea she was this high level of an athlete. I just 22nd ranking worldwide. 21st. Wow. Good job, Jamie. She’s doing it. She’s the one that won the Master’s Fitness collector too. I think.
Jason Grubb (24:42):
<affirmative>, I watched some of that. That was great.
Sevan Matossian (24:46):
Crazy. So this event will happen. Is there an event, Is there a master’s event that’s bigger than the Master’s games event?
Jason Grubb (24:57):
I think Legends is, is bigger than,
Sevan Matossian (25:01):
That’s the one that’s coming up. That’s the one that’s coming up. Okay. Yeah,
Jason Grubb (25:04):
It is. So Master’s Fitness Collective,
Sevan Matossian (25:07):
Is it more prestigious than the Games?
Jason Grubb (25:11):
I don’t think so. I don’t think anything could be more prestigious than the Games. The games is its own But what’s nice about Legends is that I think there’s a lot more athletes. There is maybe 20 or 30 in each age group of athletes. I think last year there might have even been 40 in each age group. So it’s got a big field and with a big field, there’s a lot of unknowns. There’s no idea who’s just gonna get in here and start to mess things up. But it’s big. It’s a four day competition compared to three days with the Games and Bob and Joe who run Legends. It is smooth. It’s a games like experience. I mean, it’s not walking into the Noble Locker room that was, that’s through the roof as an experience to get all geared out. But last year, I mean, they had all the outfits for us, which were beautiful. They took our pictures, it felt like in a really cool games experience in a huge master’s competition. Now what? What’s also pretty cool, last year they had Sean Woodland Annie Sakamoto, and I can’t remember if Grr, but I, they had Live Stream and they were commentating 10 hours a day for four days,
Which is incredible. Yeah, yeah.
Sevan Matossian (26:38):
Is this a mayhem event?
Jason Grubb (26:40):
It is now. It’s not a Mayhem event, but now it’s sponsored by and held by Mayhem. This is the first time it’s been at Mayhem. So I think they developed a bit of a partnership in the last year. Moved it from the west coast
Sevan Matossian (26:54):
Jason Grubb (26:54):
Sevan Matossian (26:56):
Okay. Oh, and you’re stoked,
Jason Grubb (26:58):
Dude? Yeah, yeah. I’m stoked.
Sevan Matossian (27:01):
Oh, youre, oh, you’re gonna move this to my Disneyland for me.
Jason Grubb (27:04):
Literally. Yeah. I happen to be able to play around at Disneyland for a few weeks, a couple months beforehand. And it’s not an advantage. And they know the workouts like Rich and Jake here, they know the workouts and they’re not gonna give anything up which is right. Which is appropriate. But I do get to, So there’s a couple of
Sevan Matossian (27:30):
Implements. Tell me the dates one more time. Tell me the dates.

I believe it’s December 6th through the 11th. I’m just gonna look at a calendar really quick and see, it’s a Thursday through a Sunday. December 8th is when it starts. Eighth, ninth, 10th, 11th.

I knew this was a good idea when you told me when we were talking and we were texting each other and you’re like, Oh yeah, the master fitness collector is coming up. I was like, faking. Oh, do you wanna come on and talk about it <laugh>? And you’re like, Yeah. I’m like, fuck. But I’m so glad I’m having you on. This is so enlightening. This
Jason Grubb (28:07):
Is cool. It’s, it’s a great event. It will be an exceptional experience for all the master’s athletes that do come out here. So they have
Sevan Matossian (28:16):
Multiple, Do a lot of people bring their kids? Do a lot of people bring their kids?
Jason Grubb (28:19):
No. Okay. No, not that I know of. I don’t remember seeing a lot of kids last year.
Sevan Matossian (28:24):
But it’s kid friendly. They should, Oh
Jason Grubb (28:25):
Yeah. It’s kid friendly. Now the thing that they, they’ll struggle with this year versus last year is that there would be less spectator space here at Mayhem than there was last year in this big, They built a huge tent in a parking lot at a Marriott, or I think it’s a Marriott in San Diego last year. Just a massive, massive tent. And here, although Mayhem is massive as a venue, it’ll be a little bit harder for spectators. So they actually have limited ticket supplies. You had to buy tickets for your family to watch if you wanted them to watch unless they’re under 12 where tickets are free. So I’m not worried about that. Thank God the kids are young. But yeah, it’s gonna be a really be an amazing event here. And also what I think, I feel like Mayhem is really investing in this.
I, they’ve done some interviews with me and they’re, they’re gonna put a little bio piece together for the Mayhem YouTube channel, but they’re also, I know they’re planning on doing some featured things for this particular event and have that go out to the Mayhem Channel. And that creates a bigger audience for masters athletes. We don’t have a lot of ways to do things like this, to be on a podcast with you or to get featured. We’re still a smaller audience or we attract a smaller audience. But I think the audience gets bigger the more things like mayhem takes us and promotes that out there. And we may have.
