#804 – Let’s Keep The Party Going | Live Call In

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

My back hurts so bad. Cause I was in bed for fucking 16 hours. I woke up yesterday and I didn’t, I didn’t feel bam we’re live. I didn’t feel like myself, like, like maybe like I had allergies or something, or my throat was all scratchy. I didn’t know what it was. And then at about noon my eye started burning and my head started pounding.

Caleb Beaver (00:19):


Sevan Matossian (00:20):

It was fucking crazy. And then I just lost all my, like, physical strength. So at like two 30 I climbed into bed and, and Greg was having this huge, uh, you know, launch of the broken science party at his house and everyone was there. My wife sent me pictures of the kids over there with like Rodney Mullen and shit. And then, uh, and then they, and I just, the guy was stuck in bed. And then finally at like nine o’clock, I took four ti uh, Advil PM and I went to sleep. And then I woke up at six, six this morning. I can’t tell if I’m better or not. No, no respiratory stuff though. You know what I mean? Just all head pounding and, uh, all I can think of is I felt like I had the worst allergies of all time in the world, but I don’t really have allergies, so I don’t know what it could be.

Mattew Souza (01:14):

You sound a little better.

Sevan Matossian (01:15):

Do I? Okay. I can’t tell what’s going on. I’m in so much pain though right now. Cause I was in bed for 18 hours.

Mattew Souza (01:22):

Oh, you’re back.

Sevan Matossian (01:23):

Fucked up. Fucked up, Anna. I didn’t work out yesterday cause I was sick. It was, it was crazy. Allison, good morning. Welcome back. Welcome.

Mattew Souza (01:31):

I saw Allison briefly last

Sevan Matossian (01:32):

Night. Oh, she was at Greg’s.

Mattew Souza (01:34):

Yeah. I was like running and gunning though, so I didn’t get a chance to say hi. Hi Alison.

Sevan Matossian (01:39):

Hi Caleb.

Caleb Beaver (01:41):

Hi. Hi.

Mattew Souza (01:42):

Hi, Caleb.

Caleb Beaver (01:43):


Sevan Matossian (01:48):

When, uh, there’s this, um, confusion as human beings that we think that when we have a problem, that we’re gonna think our way out of it. And what’s funny about that is it’s thinking almost is the cause of every single problem. So you, you think you have $4,000, you loan it to someone because you think it’s yours, and those are all just thoughts. And then the person doesn’t pay you back. So now you have a thought that you think that the money was yours and you gave it to that person. And now you think they owe it to you back because that was what you guys decided. But it’s all just thinking. It’s all made up. It’s all delusion. And then the only way ever to get over any of that is to accept the fact that it, it wasn’t your money and let it go. You’re not gonna think your way out of it. You do. You want to die thinking that that person owes you that money. Do you wanna hold onto that forever? That’s how everything works. You never think your way out of a problem. Never ever, ever, ever. You have to accept a problem.


Never think your way out of a problem. Almost. I mean, I I’ll say almost cause my wife doesn’t like it when I say never. Because you have to realize what is a thought? What is a story? What is the narrative? What have you spun up? What lie are you telling yourself? And if you do think you thought yourself out of a problem, I have an eating disorder. I have an eating disorder, I have an eating disorder, you’re gonna have to at some point accept it. You don’t get to add other thoughts to it that make that problem go away.

Mattew Souza (03:16):

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>,

Sevan Matossian (03:18):

It doesn’t, it doesn’t work that way. That’s not how the brain works. It’s not like, um, it doesn’t work that way. There’s acceptance. Acceptance. The the person you absolutely hate the most. God, we’re seeing some really disgusting stories. Uh, just another story to call a story. A disgusting story. I know. It’s brutal. Man. Acceptance is the only way

Mattew Souza (03:42):

I I like that last time you were talking about too, like doing something. And then if somebody doesn’t, uh, reciprocate in the way you thought, then you’re like upset about them or to them, right? Like, Hey, I just held, I just held the door open for you. You didn’t even say thank you. Like, fuck off. Like if it’s a little bit different, but at the same time

Sevan Matossian (03:59):

No, I know exactly what you’re saying. Yeah.

Mattew Souza (04:01):

And then because you have

Sevan Matossian (04:02):

A thought that goes with holding the door open for someone.

Mattew Souza (04:04):

Yes. Exactly. And then now you’re thinking, oh, well they didn’t, they didn’t reciprocate that thought, so they must dislike me. Or I must, I must now dislike them. Or you spin some story about how you’re angry about it rather than just doing it because maybe that’s the person who you are. You’re doing it for yourself.

Sevan Matossian (04:18):

And, and then at the dinner table that night, you spent up a story on top of that. I can’t believe how rude people are. I held the door open for Starbucks and six people walked through and not one of ’em said, thank you to me. <laugh>. Fuck. So guilty of that shit. So good.

Mattew Souza (04:28):

<laugh> a while ago. Uh, everywhere. I always used to go. My dad, everybody called everybody. Sir. Didn’t matter if it was like the gas station tended outside, cleaned it out, the trash didn’t matter if it was the guy ruing through your recyclables, cleaned it up where the CEO of some company. Right? Everybody wass. And, uh, I remember asking sometimes no one ever really called you that. Why did he goes, it’s not for, it’s not for them. It’s for us. It’s a standard in the way that we conduct ourselves. So we’re not doing it in the hopes of that. It’s reciprocated and somehow we’re doing it because that’s the standard that we hold. We’re doing it for ourselves. So that always stuck with me.

Sevan Matossian (04:59):

I, uh, I I need to take my hot girl walk this morning feeling sort of low. Trish, Trish,

Mattew Souza (05:08):

Trish, Trish, I’ll right back.

Sevan Matossian (05:09):

Yeah. Take your time.

Mattew Souza (05:12):

Yeah, you do sound better. I was worried about you last night when I called you. Oh yeah. I’ve never

Sevan Matossian (05:17):

Picture I had, I had two sweatshirts on. I was under the blankets. I was just shaking. I was on the mess. Hey. And I was so bummed I wasn’t at Greg’s event. I mean, I came all the way

Mattew Souza (05:29):

Out. Oh my gosh. I know. And it was, it was funny cuz last night, literally everybody I ran into, they’re like, oh, hey, then the next words where’s Chevon? And I was joking cuz I was like, whenever I go to events at the gym, I come in and I’ll say hi. And everybody goes, oh hey, where, where’s Grace

Sevan Matossian (05:44):

<laugh>? I’m like, oh, she’s

Mattew Souza (05:45):

Way. And then I go to other vets, I’ll be like, Hey, we’re sson. I’m like, Hey guys, what about me? Okay, what about me? I’m spin. I’m spin the story. I was spinning the story.

Sevan Matossian (05:53):

<laugh>, I get that too, but, well, if I go somewhere without my wife, where’s your wife?

Mattew Souza (05:57):

<laugh>? Yeah. I’m like, they don’t wanna see me. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (06:01):

Uh, um, what, what, what the, the thought that I had that made me think of this thing, it’s a, it’s a little bit disconnected. It’s a little dis disjointed, but Kasha made a huge mistake. It’s crazy cuz I trained that dude over there who’s making these mistakes. It’s so sad. Um, they put their apology on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. You don’t ever do that. You don’t ever do that. You don’t start y your apo, what is your apology? What, why would CrossFit apologize for 23.1? Why would they come up? I don’t care. Whatever reason you come with, you don’t put it in all three places. As a matter of fact, you don’t even put it on any of those platforms. Don, buddy, I am Mr. Don fall. Maybe I’ll see Don today. Hmm. Uh, how, how bizarre that you would let that apology go on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, where you’re basically just asking, you might as well have just gone out there and say, Hey, talk shit about us.


Why not put a tasteful apology just on your own website? That’s what I would’ve had my team do. I would’ve never had my team apologize. Fucking on social media. It’s crazy too, by the way, if you wanna see the different kinds of social media, Twitter is really a vicious place. Twitter’s like the red. Oh gosh. Because on, on Instagram it’s a little more balanced. Hey, it’s no big deal. You guys loaded the wrong weights. Fuck it. Bygones be bygones. But Twitter’s just like, man, enormous, enormous miscalculation. Dude, ba you have you have children running your shit, bro.

Mattew Souza (07:36):

Yeah. That’s a bummer. I think they, you’re talking about a, it’s

Sevan Matossian (07:38):

Not even a b team, it’s not even a bt it’s not, these are like TikTok people running it. This, these are like slaves to social media. Why would you apologize? Why would you explain yourself on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, where all three places. That’s what I mean. You’re not gonna, and this is where I I I, this is a little deeper pit of uh, bit of wisdom. But you’re not gonna fix that problem by thinking your way out of it. I was thinking, oh, they think that they’re doing that for themselves. They think they’re taking like ownership or something by saying, sorry, on these platforms. Platforms. There’s nuances to this. Just put up a one page, uh, like, Hey, we fucked up. This is the situation. Uh, and we’re working on it. By, by the way, when this event, when this happened, were you gonna say something before I go talk about damn the Dan Bailey issue?

Mattew Souza (08:28):

No, I was only just gonna say like in, in regard to apology, maybe, maybe just to, just to Gabby and Laura, right? Because like, hey, sorry. You gotta do the work. Yes. We fucked up. That’s on us. If you guys wanna post something about it, we’re cool with it. We’re just gonna release an apology on the, uh, website and we’re, it is what it is and we’re just gonna move on from this. Or if you’re gonna put it on social media, just lean in hard, be like, well guys, we’re at it again. You thought it was gonna be better this year. Psych and then just,

Sevan Matossian (08:53):

Or, or, or you know, what would’ve even been crazier is have Adrian come on of a straight video of Adrian way harder to hate on Adrian, uh, to his face when he is talking to you through video. But, but to put it on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. I mean, you’re just as it’s like, Hey ass pound us in every room. Like what are you doing? What? Why? That’s just f

Mattew Souza (09:15):

Pr. Yeah. And

Sevan Matossian (09:16):

Then on it’s a PR debacle. It’s a failure. It’s a failure. I guarantee you by saying, sorry. In all those places, all you’ve done is let the world know, Hey, we’re fuck ups and these people hold us for it. Gonna say just on your full, on your platform, a single page. This isn’t rocket science, dawn, but what this is, is it’s having just anyone with the uh, uh, is the word modicum. Modicum?

Mattew Souza (09:43):

I need to look that up. Where’s Caleb? We didn’t look up that word.

Sevan Matossian (09:46):

<laugh>. He’s not in his chair. I can he he’s left.

Mattew Souza (09:48):

I got it. I look it up.

Sevan Matossian (09:50):

M o d d i c u m Is it. Got it. I should never spell out loud people. Find out how dumb I am. Um, yeah, you never do that. You never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever do that. Apologize on three platforms like that with the, with knowing that the net net net outcome is gonna be just attracting haters. Yeah. It it it’s chum for haters.

Mattew Souza (10:16):

Yeah. And it’s one of those things too, if like, if there was a a hundred people that knew and that cared about it, it’s gonna be the same a hundred people that are gonna know and care about it and post it all, whether you do the apology or not, right? Yes. Yes. But now it’s like you said, you exacerbated the issue. It was like a small little house fire. Now you let the whole forest on fire, <laugh>, you let the whole forest on fire. <laugh>. Now the whole place is a place instead of just the small contain one. You know, you knew you get Hillary’s gonna make a video about it. You know, the podcast is still gonna talk about it. You know, you know what I mean? So just let that be then just

Sevan Matossian (10:43):

Dude, Hiller Hillary went to town.

Mattew Souza (10:45):

I haven’t, I haven’t had a chance to see it yet, but I can only imagine.

Sevan Matossian (10:48):

He went to town and it’s got a shit ton of views. Haley, uh, the sheets in that bed are soaking wet. Cuz I was sweating all night. I mean, it’s like a puddle in there and you’re never gonna believe this. Avi peed the bed last night. It’s Yeah, I’m on my show. But it, and the crazy thing is is, I mean, it’s be, it’s your fault cuz you keep ’em up so late, you took ’em to the movies and you bought ’em probably like Twizzlers or some shit. Just blame the wife. Let the, let the eight year old off the hook. <laugh>. I’m just joking babe. Definitely not your fault, but j um, and we’re outta soap to do the wash. All right. Well that’s funny. You, you said you guys wanted a little behind the scenes in my life, dude, I thought for sure last night.


So I, I was, so, because I got into bed like at two 30, I was so fucking sick and I was just shaking. And when, then Avi wanted to sleep with me last night, so, and there’s a king size bed at this V R B O. So like in the middle of the night, I’m just soaking wet, right? And then a couple hours later he’s tapping me and he’s like, I peed my pants. I’m like, no shit. I’m like, no, you didn’t. I’m like, that’s me. I’m sweating like a pig. He’s like, no. I’m like, how do you know? He’s all smell <laugh>

Mattew Souza (12:06):

<laugh> smart kid didn’t pass the smell test.

Sevan Matossian (12:09):

That was a tough night.

Mattew Souza (12:11):

Yeah. I think, wait, I think what you had claimed the video of Adrian, I think would’ve probably been the best, uh, the best response there. Just a hi, A video of him. Apologize or explain the situation.

Sevan Matossian (12:20):

Explain like you, I like what you said. Lean into it.

Mattew Souza (12:23):

Yeah. And then just

Sevan Matossian (12:23):

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m Adrian Bosman,

Mattew Souza (12:28):

Things don’t always go as planned. Didn’t that happen at the games one time too? And that place jump rope workout where it was loaded wrong and it was supposed to be 1 35, but it was 1 25 or something like that?

Sevan Matossian (12:40):

Maybe, but maybe it was everyone hold, uh, EB when you were sick. Do you feel like you just ignored it and it will go away? Like Yeah, totally. Hey, like literally I was at, at, uh, like yesterday I took the kids out to eat at this restaurant and um, I I, I started just falling apart right there in the restaurant. You know? Does that ever happen to you? You’re just somewhere and all of a sudden you get sick and you just start falling apart. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, I was like falling apart and I’m just like, there’s no fucking way. And I kind of enjoyed being sick yesterday. Like, I felt like I was drunk. Kind of enjoyed it. Hey, what about Modi? Come? Is that, does it mean just like a little bit? What’s Moic? Yeah.

Mattew Souza (13:15):

Oh, sorry. I had, I I didn’t, uh, break it up here. This is tough on the laptop. Kudos to you Caleb, for doing, uh, this on the laptop overseas. Here we go.

Sevan Matossian (13:24):

A small quantity of a particular thing. Okay. That’s

Caleb Beaver (13:27):

Someone’s favorite word now because it says common

Sevan Matossian (13:28):

It. Yeah. Moic. Thank you. Moic coming.

Mattew Souza (13:31):


Sevan Matossian (13:32):

Yeah, it’s, I, I, I just, I feel so, I feel so bad for them. Uh, sh Sean Oe $50. I re it’s two E. Uh, wow. Thank you. Holy shit, dude. Is that real?

Caleb Beaver (13:46):

Is that Matt’s long lost cousin or something?

Sevan Matossian (13:49):

I don’t know, but that’s really kind <laugh>. Um,

Mattew Souza (13:53):

Say a disguise <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (13:55):

Patrick Vener got 3 0 4. Yeah. Just, uh, there’s just so many mistakes being done over there that don’t need to happen. I mean, it’s good for me.

Mattew Souza (14:09):

It’s great. How is that?

Sevan Matossian (14:10):

And it allows me to get on my high horse and just be like, yo, yeah, I, you know, uh, this mistake is so bad that I actually thought about not saying it on the air and just going straight to, uh, don with it. Like text Don and be like, yo, Don. What the fuck, dude? But

Caleb Beaver (14:26):

Chain of command savan, you can’t just go straight to the top all the time. You gotta route your all route, all your sources First.

Mattew Souza (14:32):


Sevan Matossian (14:33):

Uh, my wife Maria and I watch the, uh, all the time and love your show. Well, thank you. Say hi to Marie. Thanks for, uh, waking People up, guys for doing our best. Lord. Did the workout again. Got 2 61 Top girl score is three 80 <laugh> not possible. Right? Okay.

Mattew Souza (14:53):

Is that one of those f the fake scores somebody implements in inputs it wrong? Definitely. We had somebody from our gym do that like probably three years ago on accident, like did the scaled version of like the handstand, one of the handstand pushup workouts. And then morning Chalkup, uh, publisher on it. It was like the top three scores are, and her name was up the cross. And she was like mortified. She was so terrified about it. <laugh>, we thought it was hilarious. I gotta find it. It’s a, we still have screenshots of it.

Sevan Matossian (15:20):

Uh, I don’t remember what year it was, but one of the years when we did the open, we did it in someone’s garage at their house. And Joe Alexander, I think he’s a flow master and a former Navy Seal. I could be wrong about that, but I don’t think I am. He was judging Dan Bailey and he judged and he count miscounted one of the reps or two of the reps. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>.

Mattew Souza (15:39):

Yeah. And that’s one of those things that you needed all the cleans to advance. So that’s

Sevan Matossian (15:43):

Like a big deal. Oh, okay. Yeah. And what ends up happening is, uh, Joe Alexander lost his job. Uh, he, he uh, he didn’t lose his job as a flow master, but he was no longer allowed to judge that year at the CrossFit games. There was a swift and immediate, um, and I love Joe. Everyone loves Joe Joe’s awesome. Joe’s fucking the man. Uh, I’ve been part of the equipment, I’ve been part of the equipment on the gym multiple years, and we have to check the weights multiple times and caught mistakes too. Oh. So I’m guessing Vincent, uh, Ramos at his affiliate. He’s the dude who sets up the gear for the open.

Mattew Souza (16:19):

No, he’s a volunteer at the games.

Sevan Matossian (16:20):


Mattew Souza (16:21):


Sevan Matossian (16:22):

How do you know that?

Mattew Souza (16:24):

I met him at the games.

Sevan Matossian (16:25):

Damn. You know your shit.

Mattew Souza (16:26):

Yeah. And, um, and Vincent, I do have those, uh, shoes. So next time I run out to, uh, Chevon’s house, the return equipment and we hang out when he gets back to Santa Cruz, I’ll, uh, I’ll, uh, take care of that for you and make sure he gets the note.

Sevan Matossian (16:40):

Yeah, yeah. Thank you. Lemme know what you’re talking about, but yeah. Uh, the top men’s validated rep from, uh, we’re getting a report right now is three 80, but the video link is broken. That’s 76 more reps than Vener <laugh>

Mattew Souza (16:54):


Sevan Matossian (16:56):


Mattew Souza (16:57):

That’s awesome. It’s validated, but the links broken. That’s makes

Sevan Matossian (17:01):

Sense. Uh, <laugh>, I guess there’s some issue with the tiebreaker too. Alright. Uh, anyway, just, it just lets you know. I I I guess we could just be patient there. It’s, it’s, it’s, but it’s definitely the rookie hour over there. Uh, the, that wall bar ball target, uh, I dunno if you guys remember, but we talked about what it said, uh, in the, what’s that called? Not the range of motion, but the in the rule course. Well, that too. And that’s where I was going in the rule book. It talks about where the wall ball has to hit. And then someone showed me, not only is that in the rule book for the games, but that’s in the judge’s course. Yeah.

Mattew Souza (17:44):


Sevan Matossian (17:44):

And yeah,

Mattew Souza (17:45):

There is a discrepancy between the two.

Sevan Matossian (17:47):

Dude, the picture doesn’t match to what the writing says.

Mattew Souza (17:51):

<laugh> classic.

Sevan Matossian (17:53):

The picture doesn’t match the writing.

Mattew Souza (17:57):

Classic. Was it a

Sevan Matossian (17:58):

Photo? So you don’t know. So you don’t know what the uh, what the uh, what the rules. The what what there’s a word for it. The, oh, it’ll come to me. Some sort of phrase.

Mattew Souza (18:11):

I think

Sevan Matossian (18:11):

That’s valid. You don’t know what’s a valid, valid throw. Here it is. Oh yeah. Wow. Caleb, you’re good. Uh, this is, someone sent me this in a text judges course I, I took last night to validate scores versus the standards. You can’t make this shit up. So it says the ball has to clear, the center of the ball has to clearly go over the line and they have a red cross by it, but the center of that ball is clearly over the line. And then, and then the picture shows it, the ball over the line. It’s like, which one is it? And then look at the top one. Check, check. I mean, it’s so c ba bizarre. They live in Bazaro world, dude. Oh, uh, I don’t know if that’s what I’m doing. Are you comparing the judge’s course photo to the new standard?

Mattew Souza (18:58):


Sevan Matossian (18:58):

It, I think it was the same. Shouldn’t it be the same? I think it was the same photo.

Caleb Beaver (19:03):

I think the, the top one is from the judge’s course and the bottom one is from the standard.

Sevan Matossian (19:09):

Just get the wall ball over the 10 foot target. You mean the whole ball? Or you just have to hit it? I say you should just have to hit it. Just make a target and then, well, I guess some people, well, I guess some people it’s not just floating. I don’t know if it is simple, Victor.

Mattew Souza (19:26):

I don’t, I don’t think it’s that simple. The judge’s course was having issues too. Did the server, Caleb, did you take it by any chance?

Caleb Beaver (19:32):

No, I didn’t.

Mattew Souza (19:34):

Oh. Like the server and stuff on it was like super slow and it would say it would save your stuff and then you’d go back and you’d have to like repeat it. Oh. I kept just putting in this infinite loop of the pulling one where you would get all the questions right and then it like wouldn’t save and then it wouldn’t say complete. Then I’d have to go back and like redo it and redo it and redo it. It got to the point where you just knew the answers. It was like six, save

Caleb Beaver (19:54):

It <laugh>. That’s, that’s like all, uh, all the computer training that we have to do in the military. Like, it’ll eventually you just keep repeating and repeating and then you know all the answers.

Mattew Souza (20:04):


Sevan Matossian (20:05):

Uh, I, I So Trish says, sorry. Uh, I’m a bit foggy this morning. Well, that’s weird that you said sorry. It doesn’t seem, it seems outta character that you’re saying.

Caleb Beaver (20:12):

Sorry. She never says sorry. Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (20:15):

I’m a bit foggy this morning too. Uh, 4 48 is a good one. I think this guy, I don’t know who this guy is, but I think he makes two appearances on the show this morning. Here we go

Guest (20:31):

In the deep south days of kkk Jim Crow segregation. It was the greatest environment for a young man to grow up in. We as black Americans, even though segregated were the same way as other Americans across our country. It was a Jewish community. It was, it is the Polish community. It’s the German communities is all together. They understood one thing about our country. What a great place to be. We’re all proud to be Americans and we understood the only way that you can actually get respect is not through demanding it, but commanding it. And how do you command respect the old American way? You work harder, you run harder, you study harder, and you gain people’s respect. That was my community, by the way. A little history that you don’t know about cuz Left has done a really good job of hiding this process. You see, it was the thirties, the forties, fifties and sixties. There was a black community, my community, the led out country and the growth of middle class men, trick lady into college, men committed to marriage, over 70% in percentage entrepreneurs. And that entrepreneur base of 40% in our community led to 50 to 60% of black Americans in 1960s being part of middle class. So, no, don’t believe the leftists about how oppressed we’ve been. We were kicking butt period. I lived it. I grew up in the deep south days of kk.

Sevan Matossian (21:34):

And you can see all the statistics. By the way, if you pick up a Thomas Soel book, Thomas Sol Soel, the oldest Bible in the world, 1100 years old. This is for you guys out there. This is for my base, the Bible beating base for my Christian base

Caleb Beaver (21:51):

For the caller yesterday. Yes.

Sevan Matossian (21:56):

I think that, I think that is true though. Isn’t that, isn’t that weird about the show? I think the show does have like a Christian base.

Caleb Beaver (22:01):

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. I think so too.

Sevan Matossian (22:06):

I’d a never in a fucking million years thought that I would have be like, surrounded by Christians. Like if you’d asked me when I was like in the 10th grade

Caleb Beaver (22:14):


Sevan Matossian (22:16):

Like 10th grade two years ago,

Caleb Beaver (22:18):

<laugh>, like 10th
