Listen now

Texxess (00:00):

Where’s Chad?

Sevan Matossian (00:02):

Bam. We’re live. He’s, uh, in the dark. Uh, you are staring. I don’t know what you’re staring at. Uh, uh, on the, uh, far right of my screen is, uh, Tyler Watkins. He is the founder and creator of Lawnchair Leader Boarding. I think this is the, is this the second or third time we’ve done? The second, second time we’ve done draft, right? Second

Texxess (00:24):

Time. Okay. Games is the first time,

Sevan Matossian (00:26):

Uh, hopefully this will become a regular thing. Uh, Tyler has developed a way that everyone in the community can play a, uh, fantasy, uh, fitness league, and it’s at lawnchair leader boarding.com. That’ll be scrolling across the bottom at the whole time amongst us. We’ve, uh, made teams of two, except for No, everyone. No,

Texxess (00:47):

Everybody’s got one.

Sevan Matossian (00:48):

Okay. So the teams are Sevan and JR. Chad and, uh, Patrick Clark, uh, bill Grundler and Tyler Watkins. Uh, Brian Spin, and Brian Friend, uh, Pedro. Is Pedro coming?

Texxess (01:01):

Pedro’s not coming.

Sevan Matossian (01:02):

No. Okay. I

Texxess (01:03):

Think he’s 3:00 AM

Sevan Matossian (01:04):

Uh, Peter, uh, Pedro from, uh, coffee Wads and Pods, coffee pods and Wads. And, uh, chase Ingram, uh, the only real, uh, journalist here with, uh, that’s why he got stuck with John Young to bounce out. <laugh>, um, team, uh, fabulous thumbnail from the show earlier today. Uh, and I’ll kidding aside, uh, John and Brian, you did an amazing job today. Great job. Two hours of just, uh, go. If you wanna see the, um, individual picks who, uh, John and Brian think are gonna win, uh, go ahead and check out that show. Okay. Um,

Brian Friend (01:45):

I’ll take it. I’ll take it from here for a sec. Savan,

Sevan Matossian (01:47):

Please. Thank you.

Brian Friend (01:48):

So, as is, um, customary draft order was determined by cumulative beard length, and therefore you see the draft order on the screen. I’m pretty sure that’s how it’s always done. <laugh>. We’re gonna draft for both individuals and teams. So then we flip it with the baby faces going first for the teams <laugh>. So sev and J will kick things off. We’re gonna, not gonna set a time limit, but if, if we feel it’s unreasonable amount of time, we’re gonna put a 32nd clock on you to make your pick. And then, um, so we’re gonna draft 10 total rounds for the individuals. You, each team has to draft five men and five women. The order of which you draft men and women is completely up to your team. You just have to have to do that, uh, and meet the five and five. By the end of the 10 rounds, we have a little ri of reset. And then for the teams, we’re gonna draft four male teams and four female teams of three.

Sevan Matossian (02:37):

Uh, the first good comment is here, chase looks like someone trying to look like Taylor self by wearing a fake.

Brian Friend (02:44):

I came on to show Taylor’s self what a real mustache looks like.

Sevan Matossian (02:48):

Well said. Oh, okay.

Texxess (02:49):

People are probably wondering why we’re on teams the way we are. Um, Brian and I talked a long time about this. Basically, we just partnered people up based on either competence or the fact that they weren’t gonna be busy. So most of the people on right now are not gonna be at Guap Polooza except for Chase. Um, so we can make picks. So, like for me, I’m, I’m,

Brian Friend (03:12):

Oh my God. You see Chad’s beard? He should have been the first pick. What should,

Sevan Matossian (03:16):

Yeah. Wow. Wow.

Brian Friend (03:18):

James’s a draft story, a draft

Texxess (03:19):

Protest, <laugh>. So like, bill, I, I’m gonna draft and then I’m just gonna get all my picks from Bill. I’m just gonna, whoever he wants in, I’m put, I’m putting them in.

Sevan Matossian (03:30):

Where is Bill is? Are you talking to him on the side or he’s already

Texxess (03:33):

Giving you He’s drowning in water currently. Okay. Okay. Excuse me. Is G Gym is, I guess I talked to him this morning. He said his gym was underwater. Oh,

Sevan Matossian (03:43):

Wow. Shit. Oh, wow. Uh, okay. Uh, should we just dig in? We’re doing, we’re doing the, uh, individual draft first. Yep.

Texxess (03:51):


Sevan Matossian (03:52):

Okay. Uh, let’s do it. <laugh>, uh, you’ll see this spreadsheet, Phil, in real time. Uh, Tyler Watkins is typing it in, and, um, I’m controlling like something <laugh> Mr. Howell from CrossFit Crash and the Crash Crucible, who, who are we picking as our first draft for, uh, individual?

Brian Friend (04:11):

We’re gonna go with Gee, as the first pick

Texxess (04:13):

Sevan Matossian (04:15):

I’m very happy with that.

Texxess (04:16):

Don’t worry. There’s Right,

Sevan Matossian (04:18):

And, and you won’t be hearing from, uh, Brian Friend in, in terms of drafts. Uh, Brian Spin will be picking for, uh, that team. Uh, next we have, uh, Chad for Chad and Patrick Clark. Patrick Clark is a reporter with, uh, bar Bend and a great contributor in the comments, uh, to this show, Mr. Chad.

Texxess (04:37):

Uh, we’ll take, uh, Danny Spiegel, motherfucker. Wow.

Sevan Matossian (04:41):

Texxess (04:44):

Those are the only two people on the list who have blocked me. I wanted them <laugh>,

Sevan Matossian (04:49):

Uh, Tyler Watkins.

Texxess (04:50):

That strategy, that

Sevan Matossian (04:51):

Sevan Matossian (05:11):

And, uh, so Ro uh, for the Brian’s, uh, Mr. Spin will be picking for the Brian’s,

Texxess (05:17):

We can go with, uh, last year’s Champ Vener,

Brian Friend (05:20):

Three years running, baby. Let’s go.

Texxess (05:23):

Uh, roofer. You picked him Fourth

Brian Friend (05:26):

<laugh>. I did that. I did. I just did that. So none of the top people would draft him here and we could scoop ’em up with the fourth thing.

Sevan Matossian (05:32):

<laugh> Brian is is your website the barbell spin.com or barbell spin.com? There’s the, the, okay. Uh, so, um, if you want the must most UpToDate information on what’s going on in the CrossFit community, this guy will update the site immediately, uh, with Reckless Abandon. And that is, that’s our, sort of our tmz, it’s the barbell spin.com. That’s where you go to get the immediate results. If you, if you’re curious what’s going on in the community, uh, especially with, uh, game stuff, make sure you, uh, keep that a tab open at all times. Uh, the professional one, oh, no. Nope. Sorry. Not you yet Chase. Not you yet. Uh,

Andrew Hiller (06:09):

Who’s next? No, no, no. You met me.

Sevan Matossian (06:11):

Hiller. Yes. Hiller, uh, from Hiller Fit, uh, screamed onto the scene a year ago. We’ve been forced to make him our friend. Um, it’s either be his friend or be his enemy. Uh, Andrew Hiller picking for, uh, coffee Pods and Wads

Andrew Hiller (06:27):

Misler. Andrea Misler. That was good. Thanks. I’m kind of mad now.

Sevan Matossian (06:34):

<laugh>. Oh. And, and why does it say Zelos? Uh, next to her name, who

Andrew Hiller (06:37):

She qualified out of.

Sevan Matossian (06:38):

Nice. Nice touch. Nice touch Tyler. Okay. And, uh, finally, uh, the team that’s come with both its players, um, chase Ingram, and Mr. John Young.

Chase Ingraham (06:51):

John, what do you wanna do? You wanna go guy or girl? Did we get back? Yeah. Yeah.

Chase Ingraham (06:57):

Let’s just talk it out. Highlight Ricky and Emma,

Chase Ingraham (06:59):

But, uh, which Emma.

Chase Ingraham (07:02):


Chase Ingraham (07:04):

Do. Okay. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (07:06):


Chase Ingraham (07:07):

What? Very

Andrew Hiller (07:08):


Chase Ingraham (07:10):

The pick. I mean, you guys probably know something. I don’t, but you know.

Sevan Matossian (07:13):

No, they don’t. Everyone’s just hopeful.

Chase Ingraham (07:15):

That’s a gamble.

Chase Ingraham (07:16):

Who do you want?

Chase Ingraham (07:18):

Well, the Emma, I mean, is she healthy enough? Is she gonna finish the competition?

Chase Ingraham (07:22):

I mean, she’s had two years to be healthy.

Chase Ingraham (07:24):

Yeah. Can’t believe she hasn’t been healthy Conversations two years. Uh, we’ll go Ricky Guard first.

Andrew Hiller (07:30):

<laugh>. Here you go.

Sevan Matossian (07:33):

Throw someone out there. Chase, besides Emma. Let’s, who do you got?

Chase Ingraham (07:36):

I like, I like Nick Matthew too, cuz that covers an event. But if you want to go, girl, it’s fine.

Chase Ingraham (07:42):

I like Girl Field’s pretty slim.

Chase Ingraham (07:46):


Chase Ingraham (07:47):

All right. Carrie is she Don’t screw us. <laugh> right back. Right.

Sevan Matossian (07:57):

And, uh, Emma Carey qualified, uh, it looks like at the, uh, teen com team competition. That would’ve been two years ago, right? What would, what would that be? 2020. That’s how she qualified from the teen competition of Waap Alza in 2020. Yeah. Mm-hmm.

Andrew Hiller (08:12):

<affirmative>. Interesting.

Sevan Matossian (08:15):

Alrighty. Uh, Mr. Jr. Howell, uh, what is our second pick? You’re doing a great job, by the way. I’m gonna tell you,

Chase Ingraham (08:22):

I believe in you. We’re going backwards now. We’re going backwards now. Hill

Chase Ingraham (08:24):

Pick. It’s,

Andrew Hiller (08:24):

It’s Hillary, you’re out first of a last pick.

Sevan Matossian (08:28):

I apologize. Mr. Hiller.

Andrew Hiller (08:29):

Exa. Yeah. Um, I would like for the team consisting of myself and coffee pods and the wads. Fuck. I had an answer. Um, give a minute. Don’t come back.

Sevan Matossian (08:43):

Take your time, buddy. Take your time. Yeah, I know. Ryan. Any shocks in his first round already?

Chase Ingraham (08:49):

I think I’d say, uh, let’s see what Hillary does here. <laugh>.

Andrew Hiller (08:53):

Whoa, whoa, whoa. <laugh>.

Brian Friend (08:55):

Because so far he has the most shocking pick in the first round, and it might happen again.

Sevan Matossian (08:59):

Ooh. I watched, uh, the Morning Chalkup. They got, they got LER in their top three when they had Annie, uh, Sakamoto and Nick Brazier, uh, with Lauren Khal. I think they had, uh, Nestler picked in the top three.

Texxess (09:11):

She’ll get second.

Andrew Hiller (09:12):

I wouldn’t say for Kowski is a surprise, but I, I would like fork kowski.

Texxess (09:16):

All right, man. Really?

Andrew Hiller (09:19):

What do you mean, man? Really?

Brian Friend (09:20):

I think that’s an amazing pick.

Andrew Hiller (09:21):

Just don’t screwed up, up.

Sevan Matossian (09:23):

Yeah. Oh, and, and Brian, you’re saying that because you’re saying that because Fk Kowski is in, in this event, isn’t necessarily a utility player. There’s some specific spots he’s gotta go.

Brian Friend (09:33):

Yeah, I mean, pick. He’s, uh, he might, you know, he might not be the, the winner of the competition, but there, there will be a couple events. We’ll be not only a good play for him, but also a fairly obvious one. And it’s really nice to have a couple guys like that on your roster.

The Barbell Spin (09:47):


Andrew Hiller (09:47):

One would’ve been a shocking pick? What’d you think I was gonna do?

Brian Friend (09:51):

Uh, no one knows. That’s why we have you here. Ah,

Andrew Hiller (09:54):


Texxess (09:55):


Sevan Matossian (09:57):

Uh, Mr. Spin.

The Barbell Spin (09:59):

I’m gonna go with the, uh, woman that morning. Chocolate didn’t pick. And that’s Emma Al.

Texxess (10:05):

Hmm. That’s, I was gonna

Sevan Matossian (10:08):

Chad the calculator. Schroeder. Oh,

Chad (10:11):

I think it’s,

Texxess (10:12):

No, it’s me.

Sevan Matossian (10:13):

Oh shit. Sorry. Sorry. <laugh> new to the job. I’m new to the job. Oh, I’ll go, I’ll go if they want. No, it’s okay. It’s okay. Thank you. I appreciate you. Uh, Mr. Watkins.

Texxess (10:22):

I’m gonna regret this. I want Nick Matthew. Hmm.

Andrew Hiller (10:27):

Yeah, that’s a mistake. Yeah. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (10:30):

<laugh>. Okay. I wanna, I wanna go across the board here really quick. Uh, John Young, is that a mistake?

Chase Ingraham (10:36):

All right. It depends where he plays

Sevan Matossian (10:37):

Him. Uh, chase, is that

Andrew Hiller (10:39):

A mistake? You got a credit cough?

Sevan Matossian (10:40):


Brian Friend (10:41):

No. It’s not a

Sevan Matossian (10:42):

Mistake hill. Is that a mistake? The clean

Chase Ingraham (10:44):

And jerk in the Balance

Sevan Matossian (10:46):

One. Look at Chase is like, no, its not a mistake. Like sending us mixed signals and stuff. Like, we’re at the bar. <laugh>. No, it’s not a mistake. Uh, Hiller, is that a mistake? Nick Matthews?

Andrew Hiller (10:54):

No, I was just giving him a hard time. Nick’s a good, Nick’s good, good pick for the handstand event and the lift.

Sevan Matossian (10:59):

He’s like, Brian, mistake Mr. Spin.

The Barbell Spin (11:03):

Uh, I wouldn’t have picked both of ’em. Um, they’re, they’re good for clean and jerk. You know, that’s a great event for Clean and jerk for both of ’em. So, and, and then, uh, handstand hold. So

Sevan Matossian (11:14):


Texxess (11:15):

Utility player

Sevan Matossian (11:15):

Nick’s cat? Is Tyler the first one to make a mistake?

Chad (11:18):

No. I was, I was gonna take Matthew next, so,

Sevan Matossian (11:22):

All right. I

Chad (11:23):

Agree with that.

Sevan Matossian (11:24):

<laugh>. All right. Uh, JR Howell, was that a mistake for Tyler Watkins to pick Nick Matthew?

JR Howell (11:33):

No, I don’t think so. Cuz Romans more of a utility player. You can play him anywhere. You can play him in most workouts, but Nick Matthew, I think is more of the specialist.

Sevan Matossian (11:41):

Alrighty. Uh, Chad, uh, the man with the biggest beard,

Chad (11:49):

I think.

Chase Ingraham (11:54):

Dang, you really did take a screen. Go with. Um,

Sevan Matossian (12:02):

I’m trying to see if we have some music that we can Oh, here we

Chase Ingraham (12:05):

Go. <laugh>. I know, I lost my there. Um,

Texxess (12:13):

See, you fell for it. Spin, because if you

Chase Ingraham (12:16):


Texxess (12:17):

Wrong picks, Brian will blame it on you the whole time.

Chase Ingraham (12:21):

I’ll go away.

Andrew Hiller (12:24):

<laugh>, the music is

Sevan Matossian (12:25):

Good. Thank you.

Chase Ingraham (12:27):

It’s my

Sevan Matossian (12:28):

Favorite. It’s

Chase Ingraham (12:28):

My favorite. We’ll go with Pepper. All right.

Andrew Hiller (12:33):

Hello. A little Spiegel Pepper

Sevan Matossian (12:36):

Jr. Who? We got baby. Who? We got

JR Howell (12:39):

Ome. Bion.

Sevan Matossian (12:41):

Wow. Wow.

Chase Ingraham (12:42):

I wonder where you’re gonna play him.

Sevan Matossian (12:44):

Wow. Hmm. A swimming event, Jr.

JR Howell (12:48):

Yeah, I think so. Maybe some dancing. I

Chase Ingraham (12:50):

Think the clean jerk. That’s where you should play him.

Sevan Matossian (12:53):

No. Uh, do we get to pick twice on the way back? Yep. Nice.

Texxess (12:57):

JR or Stephan’s gonna make the pick.

Sevan Matossian (13:02):

Oh, back to the music.

Chase Ingraham (13:05):


JR Howell (13:05):

And this is a little bit, this is a little bit more of a heart pick, but I still think that she can do really well on certain workouts. I’m gonna go with Sarah.

Chase Ingraham (13:13):

Oh, Ooh. Oh, you’re talk about a gamble.

Sevan Matossian (13:17):

I like it. I like it. That’ll keep me motivated. I like it.

Andrew Hiller (13:21):

Um, Barry Macer says that we’re going a little too slow.

Chase Ingraham (13:25):


Sevan Matossian (13:25):

There’s a MCC Cocker in there. Uh, Chad Schroeder for the Patrick Clark and Chad team.

Texxess (13:36):

Barry, just wait till the, the team picks. That’s gonna be the hardest one. Or it’s just gonna be an all out guess

Chase Ingraham (13:46):

Go with, uh, Koski.

Sevan Matossian (13:49):

Oh, good pick.

Andrew Hiller (13:50):

Yeah. That’s who Jr. Should have picked.

JR Howell (13:52):

Well, I needed a female. I didn’t wanna pick three males in a

Andrew Hiller (13:54):

Row. Yeah. Breon is not a female.

Chase Ingraham (13:57):

<laugh> <laugh>,

Sevan Matossian (14:00):

Uh, that is. Thank you. Uh, Hillary, I always appreciate, um, uh, identifying the, uh, sex of the athlete. Oh. Uh, Mr. Uh, Tyler Watkins for you and Bill Grundler, who is, uh, drowning at his gym now in San Luis Obispo.

Chase Ingraham (14:16):


Sevan Matossian (14:18):

Good pick. Hey, um, they, uh, at the morning Chaka, uh, one of the ladies there picked, uh, Emily Rolf to win it. I think it was Annie, uh, Sakamoto. I approve of that pick. No. Tyler shakes his head. No. Uh, Brian, uh, spin for the Brian’s team.

Chase Ingraham (14:32):

Uh, I’m gonna go with, uh, Caitlin Vanil. Yes.

Sevan Matossian (14:39):

I have no idea who that is.

Chase Ingraham (14:41):

Not. We talked about her

Sevan Matossian (14:43):

This morning. I know, but other than Do you

Chase Ingraham (14:44):

Remember all 80 athletes we talked

Sevan Matossian (14:45):

About this morning? I do remember her name, but I, I just, cuz I said it. Caitlin Van Z And then you,

Brian Friend (14:50):

She’s been competing in the team division the last two years, but she was a top qualifier through the online qualifier for this on the female side, and I think a decent pick. She’s got some, uh, specialty things that she can excel in.

Sevan Matossian (15:02):

Uh, Mr. YouTuber Hiller Fit

Chase Ingraham (15:04):

Tutor. Magda, please.

Sevan Matossian (15:07):

You wish is Tyler’s command. Uh, chase and John. Let’s see you guys fight this out. You guys get two picks. Okay.

Brian Friend (26:35):

Surprising. I also thought you were gonna take Kike

Sevan Matossian (26:38):

<laugh>. <laugh> <laugh> for two for two on the shows. Uh, uh, uh, uh, Tyler Watkins for you and Bill Grundler. Getting down to some slim pickings here.

Brian Friend (26:50):

Chase Ingraham (26:52):

<laugh>. This is where Fantasies won, right? In the last two rounds.

Brian Friend (26:56):

Yeah. That’s where for, uh, for the good players. But for Tyler, this is

Sevan Matossian (26:59):

Where it’s lost. Is there some conventional wisdom like that Chase?

Chase Ingraham (27:02):

I mean, in a fantasy draft, like those last four rounds that nobody cares about is where you get those sleepers. It’s

Chase Ingraham (27:09):

You pick the third string running back a receiver that ends up being a first string at midway season.

Texxess (27:15):

I picked Alyssa Juliano

Sevan Matossian (27:18):

<laugh>. I think it’s Bruce Leono. You don’t

Brian Friend (27:20):

Even believe in your own pick.

Chase Ingraham (27:21):

<laugh>. I do too. The highest games person he find on there. Um,

Texxess (27:28):

Chase Ingraham (27:46):


Andrew Hiller (27:47):

And she’s hard.

Chase Ingraham (27:48):


Brian Friend (27:48):

Andrew Hiller (27:50):

Yeah. Halen’s been giving me a hard time.

Sevan Matossian (27:54):
