#813 – Let’s Start with The Truth | Live Call In

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

Decisions right now. Because instead of asking questions, they’re just acting. And we can all, everyone can see it around them. It’s like they’re spraying gasoline on a fire and we’re like, dude, you, you gotta use water

Mattew Souza (00:15):


Sevan Matossian (00:17):

But no one’s saying anything. It’s so crazy. It’s so fucking crazy. But no one’s why don’t, why don’t you think any of us are saying anything? I was trying to think about it this morning. Just because like, the person’s just a bully.

Mattew Souza (00:28):

Well, sometimes when you get super close to the fire to put it out, you’re the one that gets burned.

Sevan Matossian (00:32):

Yeah, yeah. Right, right. Great point. Great point. Actually, that is why pro, I think you just nailed why I don’t, um, <laugh>, why I’m not going over there.

Mattew Souza (00:40):

Everybody just,

Sevan Matossian (00:41):

It’s so weird. It’s would be so easy to be like, uh, I can’t believe we’re watching this. I mean, it’s fun. Part of me enjoys it. It’s like, it’s like, you know, on Instagram, like someone showed you a clip and it’s like some, someone, um, like do you remember during, uh, uh, the, the, the pandemic p u see people filling up, uh, plastic bags full of gasoline and the gasoline’s leaking out and then they put the gasoline in their trunk and you’re like, what the <laugh> on Instagram? It’s funny,

Mattew Souza (01:10):


Sevan Matossian (01:11):

But when you’re at the gas station, like we are, it, it’s, it’s, it’s, it’s also very uncomfortable.

Mattew Souza (01:18):

Yeah. Especially if they start smoking a cigarette while it’s filling up <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (01:21):

Yeah. It’s so fucking nuts. What we’re watching. I want to, I want to tell you guys the, um, some more intimate details about it. Not, not, not because you’re missing out or not missing out if I tell you, but it’s just such a classic story of it’s, um, I wanna lump it up in the woke camp. But, but I mean, I see people, I see people on the left and right do this whole time when someone should be asking questions and taking responsibility and instead just pointing fingers fucking everywhere and blaming, like, this person’s trying to put this fire out with gasoline while screaming. Um, that the people who tried with water idiots. It’s, it, it’s, I can’t believe we’re watching it, but I am enjoying it. Are you enjoying a little bit of it,

Mattew Souza (02:07):


Sevan Matossian (02:07):

I can just, just, there’s nothing at stake for me. The fire’s so far away from my own house. <laugh>. I guess there’s, I guess there’s a, there you could say that there’s a lot of stake for, uh, for humanity.

Mattew Souza (02:18):

Yeah. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (02:20):

Could do, you know what I mean? If, if you believe in it, it’s a little bit of the butterfly effect. If this thing gets fucked up, um, a lot of, I guess other people could lose out on opportunity.

Mattew Souza (02:31):

Yeah, that’s true.

Sevan Matossian (02:32):

The pizza might never get invented if this, if this person stumbles and falls <laugh>, right?

Mattew Souza (02:38):

Yeah. Yeah. I didn’t think about it that way. But you’re

Sevan Matossian (02:40):

Correct, <laugh>. I mean, in that way there’s a lot at stake.

Mattew Souza (02:44):


Sevan Matossian (02:47):

Uh, one of our colleagues was like, pretty, pretty sad by what, what they’re seeing happen. And I’m like, Hey dude, it’s, it’s, it’s like a knife fight, but it’s just rubber knives. Like, don’t worry. Like no one’s gonna die. But now, now that I’m talking to you, I’m like, well, maybe <laugh>, <laugh>, maybe

Mattew Souza (03:11):


Sevan Matossian (03:12):

I don’t know. We’re, I don’t know. But I’m gonna tell you guys sooner or later I’m gonna have to tell you guys the de because it’s such a great story.

Mattew Souza (03:20):

This, uh,

Sevan Matossian (03:21):

Yeah. Take a stab at it, please.

Mattew Souza (03:23):

No, no, no, no. I was actually gonna, <laugh> I was gonna, I was gonna change over to something that I think you would, you would like and think is funny cuz I know we’re, we’re getting big time when I start getting just some hate in my dms.

Sevan Matossian (03:35):

Oh, really? What about,

Mattew Souza (03:37):

Yeah, I was told I was a uninformed moron. So was it

Sevan Matossian (03:41):


Mattew Souza (03:42):

What the best part about it was? I didn’t remember even saying it. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (03:46):

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Mattew Souza (03:48):

Yes. Yes. So, uh, when I, I think it was the last live calling we were on, and, um, I had ended something by saying Yeah, and too bad they got, they got Trump out of office. It’d been terrible if we bought, uh, brought back jobs in America or something. Yeah. Along that line. Manufacturing in America or something like that.

Sevan Matossian (04:07):

Oh. Oh, I, is this person gonna say that there’s less unemployment now than when Trump was in office? Please don’t tell me they said that.

Mattew Souza (04:12):

No, actually they’re, they’re writing to me was just, Hey, thanks for saying that. So now I know how much of a moron you are,

Sevan Matossian (04:18):

<laugh>. Oh, but they don’t tell you what, they don’t tell you what

Mattew Souza (04:22):

No, no, no. Link to article. No. Being like, Hey, you’re wrong. There wasn’t actually like, but the funny part was is I thought it was gonna be something that I would really leaned into and like talked about. Yeah. And so I just, I thought it was hilarious that it was just like a, a passing comment. You know? It wasn’t

Sevan Matossian (04:36):

That was in your dms. Yeah.

Mattew Souza (04:38):


Sevan Matossian (04:39):

It’s interesting. I don’t remember you talking about that either.

Mattew Souza (04:43):

It was literally just a like a in passings comment. I was like, yeah. And how terrible was that? Got Trump out that wanted to bring jobs back to the US and I think I said, they’re taking away a bunch of abs afterwards or something like that. <laugh> very tongue in cheek.

Sevan Matossian (04:58):

We are not we,

Mattew Souza (05:00):

I mean, someone took the time out of their day to, to like write that to me. <laugh>,

Sevan Matossian (05:04):

Uh, um, I would say 10% of the YouTube comments are just a reminder to me that people aren’t listening to the show.

Mattew Souza (05:13):

Oh yeah. When you find that one that’s just like, you can tell every, you started reading it, they’re like, what the fuck

Sevan Matossian (05:18):

This guy? Yeah. Like, you didn’t even listen to it. Like you got triggered and, um, and just wrote this.

Mattew Souza (05:24):


Sevan Matossian (05:26):

Uh, someone said was, someone was saying to me that, um, uh, I should contact Kevin o’s wife if I want someone to come on here and talk about the, um, adaptive class at the CrossFit games. There’s tons of athletes I could reach out to. We had someone, we had a do great dude on here, a jetted. I, right? Yeah. Is that who it was? Yeah.

Mattew Souza (05:45):

Was awesome.

Sevan Matossian (05:46):

Yeah. I I would and I’m sure I’ll invite him again, um, as we get closer to, uh, game season. He was a, he was a great guest. My point was, is that there, there’s a guy over there, that guy Alex Erba, who would rather, he’s more concerned about himself and the, and the woke agenda and just all the crazy shit that they do over there than, than promoting what’s right. They, they have people like that on the affiliate team. They have people like that on the games team. It’s the nature of the Well, you have people like that in the White House, people like that. You know, all sorts of people who would, uh, throw the baby out with the bath water, uh, cut off the nose despite the face, however you want to, um, however you wanna word it. It’s just, it, it’s crazy. I, there’s this line that I’ve used many times in my life that the thing that, uh, distinguished me from a lot of people is I need to get what I want. I don’t need to be right. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, and that has served me so well in life that has really, really, really, really served me well in life.


So, uh, yeah. I mean, I mean, really Well, I got some great stories that I’ll say for 10 years from now where I made out very well just, just making sure I got what I want instead of, uh, uh, people feel, uh, fear zen Bach. Yeah. Yeah, exactly. Th that’s what happens when you get power. There’s a lot, there’s a lot of people there who, uh, fear him cuz um, they’re, you know, when there’s people in power, there’s other people who will feel that they’ll lose their job. Yeah, exactly. And that’s why some of the other people I’ve contacted and who haven’t responded to me, who I’m, I, I can’t believe wouldn’t come on the show to, to help push the, uh, adaptive agenda and get it some attention. I assume that, I assume because I know these people and I don’t wanna call ’em out by name, that they’re just afraid that they’ll lose their job. Good morning, Mr. Spin. Mm. Good morning. Um, h how is getting what you want being different than, uh, being Right? Um,

Mattew Souza (07:49):

That, that is a that is a good question, but I do, I I do completely agree. It’s like first before getting emotional about something, like decide what’s the, the best outcome for you. Like, what are you actually trying to get out of this? Yeah. And then stay focused on moving forward towards that, even though people might be sling mud at you at the process as you moved

Sevan Matossian (08:06):

Towards that. I’ll, I’ll give you total. Uh, I can’t think of a a real life example right now, but I’ll give you a total bullshit example. Um, I’m leaving out the house and I have, uh, five minutes to get my kids to tennis. And my wife is upset at me about something and instead of standing my ground at me, like, no, I did turn off the stove. I’m like, you know what? There’s a good chance I did leave it on. And she’s like, okay. And then, and then I get outta the house and I get to my kids to tennis on time, and that’s the lesson where they learn the trick that makes them pro. And then they make 10 billion. And I ride off into the sunset <laugh>. And I’m telling you, it’s worked like that for me. I, I, I’ll tell you, I got two houses, two houses.


I got down payments for two separate houses because there were people around me who had too much pride to just let shit go. And, uh, and I was like, Hey, that’s there. There’s no there there. Like, I don’t have to compromise my integrity at all. And, uh, it’s just, it’s just, I, I needed to get my kids to tennis. I, there’s no, that was the goal in the moment. So that’s the difference. And, and, and so my wife, this is just bullshit too, by the way. My, um, I, I just made this up, but my wife can then think that she’s right and I left the stove on, but I got what I wanted. And so that, that, that’s sort of the difference. And you can see that all the time. I mean, with egomaniacs it’s so easy to do that to, it’s so easy. It’s so easy to take their lunch. They’re, they’re, I hate to be a out out someone, but as Sue is a master at that.

Mattew Souza (09:43):

A master at what?

Sevan Matossian (09:44):

Taking the lunch from the

Mattew Souza (09:46):

<laugh>. It’s predictable behaviors,

Sevan Matossian (09:50):

Dark Lord revon, uh, love what you guys are doing for the community and spreading the word. Keep it up.

Mattew Souza (09:57):

Thank you. Dark Lord. That was a weird statement to make.

Sevan Matossian (10:03):

Uh, do you wanna be right or do you wanna be happy? Yeah. Yeah, that’s good too. Yeah. That, that’s another great, because yeah, I, I’m, when I get to tennis, I’m watching my, what I wanna do is I wanna be sitting in my, um, tricked out lawn chair, uh, at a seascape tennis club watching my kid play tennis. Yeah. And that, and I’m tickled. And then I call Sarah Cox and we tell jokes to each other and plan on my visit. Yeah. That’s way more fun

Mattew Souza (10:30):

Than arguing about the stove.

Sevan Matossian (10:32):

Yeah. I’m going down, uh, to Newport on the seventh or the eighth. My kids have a juju

Mattew Souza (10:39):

This coming month?

Sevan Matossian (10:40):

No, may of May.

Mattew Souza (10:42):

Oh. Of May.

Sevan Matossian (10:44):

I’m really excited. Hey, is it gonna rain today? Is it raining at your house right now? Do you know? Have you looked out when it is raining?

Mattew Souza (10:50):

Yeah. Uh, it’s not raining right this second, but it was, it’s super gloomy.

Sevan Matossian (10:56):

Uh, let’s talk about more important things. Let’s get, uh, into specifics today. Uh, uh, JT Watkins, um, how often do y’all wash your vehicles?

Mattew Souza (11:04):


Sevan Matossian (11:05):

Are you allowed to do that in Cali? Yeah. You know, I hadn’t washed my forerunner in five years and, um, I went on a trip and I came back and my nephew had watched, washed it, washed it, washed it, washed it, washed it.

Mattew Souza (11:16):

Oh, what a good

Sevan Matossian (11:17):

Dude. I know. That’s cool. Right?

Mattew Souza (11:18):

Did it look away nicer? Were you like

Sevan Matossian (11:20):

Surprised way nicer? Yeah, I didn’t even recognize it yesterday. My wife was somewhere in the car and I parked next to it bringing some other kids there. And uh, I was like, oh, that’s the nice forerunner. And then I think Avi said, that’s ours. And I was like, oh shit.

Mattew Souza (11:34):


Sevan Matossian (11:35):

It’s black now. It’s not gray anymore.

Mattew Souza (11:37):

<laugh>. Yeah, I’m the same way. Not often Tyler. Not often.

Sevan Matossian (11:45):

No one had. Who has time for that? I should get David Goggins on the show. I should

Mattew Souza (11:53):


Sevan Matossian (11:53):

I know. If anyone knows him, tell him we would totally bro out.

Mattew Souza (11:58):

Yeah, I think you would. It’d be cool.

Sevan Matossian (12:02):

Oh, Jake Paul fights tonight. 4, 4 38. Sorry, I just sent it to you. It’s not even tonight. He fights in a couple hours.

Mattew Souza (12:10):

I thought wasn’t it didn’t date? I saw something about Dana White. This could be old outta context, but didn’t Dana White say something like they didn’t, they only sold half the tickets and it was being switched or shut down

Sevan Matossian (12:22):

Or something like that? Honestly, uh,

Mattew Souza (12:24):

Holy smoke. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (12:26):

I love, I love staying on top of all the fight game and I’m thinking, I don’t know if I’m gonna buy this. I don’t think I, I suspect I’m not going to, if it, I suspect I’m not buying this

Mattew Souza (12:36):


Sevan Matossian (12:37):

But I watched the hype. The hype was pretty good.

Mattew Souza (12:39):

Yeah. I play it here.

Sevan Matossian (12:42):


Speaker 3 (12:43):

Good deal then since you’re so confident. If you win, I’ll pay you double what I’m paying you already. But if I win, I take everything that I’m paying you deal or no deal since you’re so confident,

Speaker 4 (12:55):

Take it

Speaker 3 (12:56):

Dealer. No deal.

Speaker 4 (12:57):

Take it. Take it. Sit back

Speaker 3 (13:00):

Down. I just wanna shake your hand,

Speaker 4 (13:01):

Sit back down, answer the question. You, you’ve got a deal. All or nothing. All or nothing. You’ve got it. You’ve got it, you’ve got it. Scrub it.

Speaker 3 (13:22):

And, and you know what’s funny?

Sevan Matossian (13:24):

And then, and then he rips on him a little bit. He is like, his dad sounds just like his brother, which is crazy. His dad sounds just like, and looks just like Tyson Fury, but Right. Then Jake Paul said exactly what I was thinking. He’s like, that’s funny. Your dad had to make the deal for you.

Mattew Souza (13:38):

<laugh> dad, he’s a world class shit talker, that’s for sure.

Sevan Matossian (13:44):

Um, Savon, uh, did you see Woody Harrelson’s rant on snl? No. I almost got in a fight with Woody Harrelson one time.

Mattew Souza (13:51):


Sevan Matossian (13:52):

Yeah, on campus at uc, Santa Barbara. He was there and I was talking to him and he just turned into an asshole.

Mattew Souza (13:59):


Sevan Matossian (13:59):

It was crazy. Uh, what was his rant? Is he, uh, it’s funny, one of the things I heard from, uh, Howard Stern when I was on there, like everything about him is woke and then he’s complaining about cancel culture. And I’m like, dude, dude, you’re, you’re, you are cancel culture. He’s starting to look like he has Down syndrome as he gets older.

Mattew Souza (14:23):

A little bit.

Sevan Matossian (14:23):

I think smoking that much weed isn’t good for you.

Mattew Souza (14:27):

Uh, not long term. I think anything long term is that is good for you.

Sevan Matossian (14:35):

Uh, Judy Reed, I, I wonder if Harrelson can get canceled from that movie. White Man can’t jump. God, I really enjoyed that as a kid.

Mattew Souza (14:46):

Wait, is that true?

Sevan Matossian (14:48):

No. Oh, I knew it wasn’t true. Soon as I it

Mattew Souza (14:52):

<laugh>. Yeah. I like how you knew exactly what I was reading too.

Sevan Matossian (14:54):

<laugh>. I know. You knew exactly. It wasn’t

Mattew Souza (14:55):

True. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (14:57):

I was sick. One of the wrenches on him.

Mattew Souza (15:00):


Sevan Matossian (15:01):

Uh, how about this, 4 39 to see if you can tell me what’s going on here. What is, what is Joe Biden really is weekend at Bernie’s. It it, it’s not even a joke anymore, right?

Mattew Souza (15:13):

<laugh> unfortunately not

Sevan Matossian (15:14):

<laugh>. It, it always looks, one of, one of our close friends told me that, um, Joe Biden looks like two people are always holding his arms to help him walk. And then they’re CGI ID out.

Mattew Souza (15:25):

Oh God.

Sevan Matossian (15:26):

He really is. Dr. Romanoffs example of the pose method in running, you know, Dr. Romanoff, the, the running guy from the CrossFit world, he’s the Russian running coach. Anyway, he invented Pose running. Basically it’s just lean forward and catch yourself. That’s what walking is. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>.

Mattew Souza (15:41):

Yeah, I was familiar with that.

Sevan Matossian (15:42):

Yeah. It’s just lean forward and catch yourself. Look at this fucking guy. This is where is this? Is this Russia?

Mattew Souza (15:49):


Sevan Matossian (15:50):

Ukraine. Where is this? Where This is nuts. Watch what happens. Hey, isn’t it obvious, like, let me ask you just a quick question. When he’s walking, where do you think he’s supposed to be walking?

Mattew Souza (16:02):

I would assume just straight down the the red carpet line, right?

Sevan Matossian (16:06):

Yeah. That like, he’s supposed to stay on the carpet, right?

Mattew Souza (16:08):

Yeah, a hundred percent. Just walk straight down it. That’s

Sevan Matossian (16:11):

What the carpet’s for.

Mattew Souza (16:12):

Uh, yes.

Sevan Matossian (16:13):

He knows that. You know that. We all know that.

Mattew Souza (16:15):

Yeah. It’s the red carpet.

Sevan Matossian (16:16):

Okay, now watch this shit.

Mattew Souza (16:18):


Sevan Matossian (16:20):

This shit is crazy. Okay, turn around.

Mattew Souza (16:34):

Oh no.

Sevan Matossian (16:36):

Hey, it,

Mattew Souza (16:37):

So look how many people look how the look. He comes and like has to, it’s like a, he’s like the dog trainer. You see him have to do little spin and then he is gotta keep him on. And then once he goes off, they don’t make it look too forceful, like they’re controlling him. They kind of just like, okay, yeah, we’ll just go with it as if you’re supposed to be off the red carpet.

Sevan Matossian (16:54):

It’s so dog trainer. It’s so, it’s it, that’s exactly what it is. If you’ve ever taken your dog to a dog class, that’s exactly what it is.

Mattew Souza (17:01):

Yeah. He does the whole spin and everything.

Sevan Matossian (17:04):

Oh fuck. It’s weird.

Mattew Souza (17:07):

It’s kind of sad. Like if that was like your relative or something like that and they were pring him out, at some point you would kind of be like, Hey guys, come on. Like this is, this isn’t cool anymore.

Sevan Matossian (17:17):

Why would that guy country Ian, why would that guy give two shits if we started World War iii?

Mattew Souza (17:24):

He wouldn’t what? Right,

Sevan Matossian (17:25):

Right. He doesn’t care. Not at all. He’s dead. He’s dead in a, in a week Anyway. Yeah.

Mattew Souza (17:29):

<laugh>, I’ll never see the end of it out. Yeah. Crazy.

Sevan Matossian (17:35):

Uh, Justin, uh, Zumba, it’s so, it’s way sad. Uh, Ryan Sampson, it’s so fucking sad. It’s just elder abuse. Uh, Mike Oxon. Yeah. It’s why, I wonder why his wife doesn’t say something.

Mattew Souza (17:51):

Hey, you think you hand him an iPhone and say, Hey, can you do me a favor? We’re looking for this email from a week ago. Can you go ahead and and open it up on your inbox and you just hand him the phone?

Sevan Matossian (18:00):

Like, can he navigate that? Does he get that skillset?

Mattew Souza (18:03):

Yeah. And if he doesn’t, isn’t that just a massive red flag for how the fuck is he supposed to like, run the country and understand what’s going on?

Sevan Matossian (18:13):

That’s a good question. Uh, Ryan Sampson, definitely not.

Mattew Souza (18:19):

That’s crazy.

Sevan Matossian (18:20):

Hey, did, did CrossFit ever do we, have we gotten any d uh, definitive acknowledgement on either way? On what, what the um,

Mattew Souza (18:28):

The thruster is?

Sevan Matossian (18:29):

Yeah, the thruster. Do we know yet?

Mattew Souza (18:31):

I mean, other, other than, other than Greg stapling it down for everybody the other day. I don’t think we’ve heard anything definitive.

Sevan Matossian (18:38):

I wanna see if, uh, is I wonder if, um, I’m going over to the leaderboard right now. I wonder if, uh, Patrick Zelner’s score still stands.

Mattew Souza (18:48):

I have it. I I assume that I get all, I get all my, um, news now from that text thread. <laugh>. So

Sevan Matossian (18:55):

<laugh> I look

Mattew Souza (18:55):

And like, and like something didn’t pop up like then. I’m assuming it’s still standing.

Sevan Matossian (19:01):

I don’t see Vener in the top 50.

Mattew Souza (19:04):

Oh, change mine. I’m,

Sevan Matossian (19:05):

I’m, wow. Joe Scally number 34. Do you know who that is?

Mattew Souza (19:10):

Yeah. Wasn’t, isn’t he an old time competitor?

Sevan Matossian (19:12):

Yeah. Yeah. I haven’t seen that name in forever.

Mattew Souza (19:16):

Yeah. Joe Skelly.

Sevan Matossian (19:19):

Yeah. I don’t see, um, that’s interesting,

Mattew Souza (19:22):

Wasn’t it? Hey, there’s somebody with my last name. You see that number 42

Sevan Matossian (19:27):

Is, is it you? Oh yeah.

Mattew Souza (19:29):

Wow. Definitely not me.

Sevan Matossian (19:31):

Mattew Souza (19:33):

Yeah. Spelled the same as that play

Sevan Matossian (19:36):

Of Of course. I know you only have one. See

Mattew Souza (19:38):

Yeah. I’m just, just about as buff as that guy too. <laugh>. Same as he

Sevan Matossian (19:44):

As well. Jeez. Look at that dude’s hair. What is that like a Lego head?

Mattew Souza (19:48):

<laugh>? He’s 22.

Sevan Matossian (19:51):

Hey, did you run the open in your affiliate?

Mattew Souza (19:53):


Sevan Matossian (19:54):

Yeah. How’d it go? How’d it go? It went

Mattew Souza (19:56):

Good. We, you know, we didn’t have like a ton of people, uh, signed up this year as we have have in the past, but that’s mostly just due to our pushing of it. Right? Like you only get as many people signed up for the open as the coaches and the affiliate owners really, really like push for it. So it was a smaller group, which was actually nice as far as a logistics standpoint. But it’s still a long night cuz I mean, I coach Friday, I coached that 5:30 AM class that I get there at five and I think I got home last night from Friday at just after nine, 9:00 PM

Sevan Matossian (20:28):


Mattew Souza (20:28):

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>.

Sevan Matossian (20:30):

So usually you’re Brazilian. Are you Portuguese? Are you Brazilian?

Mattew Souza (20:33):

I’m Portuguese,

Sevan Matossian (20:34):

Yeah. Oh yeah. You look at actually,

Mattew Souza (20:36):

Yeah. My, my grandpa’s size from Kauai,

Sevan Matossian (20:40):

Uh, pat Reid. It um, someone sent me a post today. Do you you remember the, uh, the video of a Alessandra Pelli, uh, CrossFit put out former games athlete Alessandra Pelli doing 23 A and 23 B. And someone pointed out to me that she doesn’t start behind the line on the shuttle runs. Oh. And I looked, oh no. And she doesn’t. And she do. And clearly on one of ’em, she doesn’t both feed are in front.

Mattew Souza (21:08):

That’s rough.

Sevan Matossian (21:09):

It’s an endless shit show stuff.

Mattew Souza (21:11):

How, how do you, I mean, you were on the inside of a lot of that for years. How does that communication breakdown happen? Are people just siloed off? Or

Sevan Matossian (21:19):

Maybe cuz no one’s scared anymore.

Mattew Souza (21:22):

Like, Dave like struck the fear of

Sevan Matossian (21:24):

Maybe I, I don’t, I I’m, I’m, I’m part joking, but part serious. Maybe without Greg and Dave, no one’s scared enough to do their job. I mean, people there used to also really care, but I’m thinking of the people’s names who work there now. And it, it’s, it’s not a, uh, you know, who they are unless they’ve really stepped up. I mean there were some, there were, I mean, obvious, I’m trying to think. Obviously Adrian Bosman is a beast.

Mattew Souza (21:53):

Yeah, of course.

Sevan Matossian (21:54):

Um, and uh, Todd Whitman’s on the team, I think, or he was Chuck Carswell. But I’m thinking about the people who are actually in the games office at hq and they’re all mice. They’re mice, they’re, yeah. I, I I don’t see anyone there being, uh, speaking up and, and also there might be a little bit of the factor, like we were saying earlier, people are scared. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, I’m wanna point something mountain and give, like, I’d rather just keep my job and get my paycheck.

Mattew Souza (22:18):

Yeah, yeah. You’re the one that points it out. So then all of a sudden you became the, the person blamed for it. I, I’m personally, I just think it sucks that these mistakes are happening with like, kind of the, uh, pass of the torch over to Boz because I just feel like he deserves like better. So if there was a, a team around, and I don’t know how much autonomy he has. He

Sevan Matossian (22:35):

Does deserve better. He does deserve better.

Mattew Souza (22:37):

Yeah. I mean, I know from what I watched in the past and how much he puts it himself into these things and how much he tries to operate at like, the highest level that, you know, he’s just like super disappointed when these mistakes happen. Cuz I feel like, oh, takes away from all the good that he’s bringing to the table.

Sevan Matossian (22:52):

Oh, you wanna see? You want, here, I’ll show you this. I went over to the CrossFit podcast, uh, last night.

Mattew Souza (22:58):

You found it?

Sevan Matossian (22:59):

I found it. Good

Mattew Souza (23:00):

Job. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (23:02):

And uh, they now have a, they, uh, a few months ago they had 1050 subscribers. Now they have 1060 subscribers. They’ve put on 10 subscribers.

Mattew Souza (23:13):

Well, someone gonna be in trouble for that.

Sevan Matossian (23:15):

And they have a new show. They have a new show on the CrossFit podcast that’s run by Adrian Conway and he’s done five shows and they’re mixed in there with the shows Chase does.

Mattew Souza (23:27):

Okay. And they’ve done Adrian together too,

Sevan Matossian (23:29):

Right? I’m sorry.

Mattew Souza (23:30):

And the Chase and him do some together too. Adrian and Chase.

Sevan Matossian (23:34):

I guess I, now that I, I, I guess I, whenever I see Adrian and Chase on there, I just always assume Adrian’s, uh, Conway’s just a guest. Uh, Adrian Conway’s, you know, L one trainer, a very well spoken, handsome, buff, former game as a games athlete, but he’s done these five shows. They’re not doing well at all. Um, but his fifth guest is someone who works in the game d games department named, named, oh fuck, what’s her name? Heather Fuck. Maybe you could go to the CrossFit podcast and look at episode five. They’re not even five shows in. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this earlier. They’re not even five shows in. And they have someone on there. They have a diversity equity person at the highest level on the CrossFit Games team. Can you imagine how crippling that is? And I watched the video.


You want to fucking blow your brains out. Almost nothing is said. The whole interview is just a waste. I kind of, when I saw it, I kind of wanted to like erase it from my head. Cuz I like Adrian Conway and I don’t want to think that he’s woke. But one of the questions he fucking asked this lady is like, um, can you tell us, uh, what it’s like, uh, working in a, uh, uh, uh, uh, a male dominated, uh, sport as a a, a male dominated field as a woman? And it was just like, and first of all, she didn’t give any good, she didn’t give a good answer. Like I wanted her to be like, this. One time I was using the bathroom and a guy came in there and pushed his dick up against me and told me that if I didn’t take the cock, I wouldn’t get promoted.


Instead it’s left as more woke fucking vagaries. It’s so, it’s so empty. It’s so vapid. But it explains her, her every, every word out of her mouth is everything. That fucking, the Broken Science Conference was like, yeah, this is what you should be worried about. At one point in there, Heather Lawrence at, what’s her name? Heather what? Lawrence. Heather Lawrence. Equity and Inclusion in Sport. I mean, I don’t know how Adrian Conway let them name his fucking show that, by the way, another interesting thing, by the way, is that they never had a symbol. Will you go back there a second? They never had a symbol for their podcast. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. And now they do. I recognize that one. Yeah. That’s the one from, yeah, that’s the one from my, the one I had the podcast. They’ve just repurposed it, which I’m okay with. They’ve put on 10 subscribers.


But this, um, this is you, this interview is fucking painful. This is what’s wrong with CrossFit l Listen to her talk. Do you want me to play it? No. Well, if you, at one point, she says at one point, at the five minute mark, she, uh, she’s alluding to the fact that she’s educated and has a PhD and that’s really new for CrossFit to have people come from academia. Uh, and, and she couldn’t be further wrong. Uh, Melissa yer over there who worked for me as a PhD in, I th I wanna say French literature or some shit. The fucking guy who was the c e o, the dip shit who crashed the company, I think had two, uh, PhDs in, uh, in, in English and in, uh, Greek, uh, history.

Mattew Souza (26:36):

Trust the experts.

Sevan Matossian (26:38):

Oh, she, and don’t get me started on this chick’s haircut. I, if there’s a correlate, if there’s a correlate for, uh, a mental illness, it’s this haircut. And I, I hate to take it to somewhere so shallow, but they’re super, super superficial.

Mattew Souza (26:53):


Sevan Matossian (26:54):

Uh, those are old, bro. I don’t think Conway’s doing them anymore. Uh, bro. Uh, I think these are new. Will you go to the, where you go to the page three weeks?

Speaker 4 (27:03):

Three weeks ago?

Sevan Matossian (27:04):

Yeah. This is not old. This is all new shit. So if you wanna know what’s going on at the games team and what Adrian has to deal with this, this lady’s probably asking him. Uh, Adrian, uh, there’s a disproportionate. Uh, um, well, well you saw what they do at the White House. They don’t care about competency. They’re collecting white, uh, women. They’re collecting women, black people and, uh, trannies and gay people. That’s what, that’s how they’re, they’re Imagine a deck of cards. One tranny, one black dude. Uh, uh, one woman. Uh, one midget. Uh, one Armenian. Nah, I already got The Armenians aren’t good. Uh oh. That black guy doesn’t think like us. Take, I need that card back. Gimme that one. Oh, oh God. I’ll skip the black guy now too. Gay guys. <laugh> the black. Hey man, the black guys 4 37 and the black guys are gonna do it. I’m telling you, they gotta do it. I think they’re gonna do it. I think the black guys are gonna do it for us. I swear. I believe it. Do you think they’re gonna do it for us? Go from slaves to saviors. Look at this shit. I, I, I believe this. Maybe I’m delusional, but I believe this shit right here.

Speaker 4 (28:18):

Black people are gonna save America from Joe Biden.

Sevan Matossian (28:21):


Speaker 4 (28:22):

Think so. <laugh>. Okay.

Sevan Matossian (28:25):

Look at the guy’s laughing at me.

Speaker 4 (28:26):

We got tricked. He’s weakened at Bernie’s, bro. <laugh>. So black people is like, yo, champ, we might need Donnie back in there. I’m I’m hearing the hood black people.

Sevan Matossian (28:44):

Yep. People are waking up to the bullshit. Uh, thank you for our money. But the fart, but the part, the fart the part where you think that we’re too stupid to get driver’s licenses. Uh, uh, we’re not gonna tolerate that. Yeah. The thing, the thing, the difference between woke white people and woke black people is, uh, black people aren’t pussies. I know that’s a sweeping generalization, but in general it is.

Speaker 4 (29:11):

But yeah.

Sevan Matossian (29:11):

By, but, but you see what I’m saying, right? Like, if you’re woke and you’re white, you’re, you’re kind of being a coward and lacking courage comes with it. But if you’re woke and you’re black, you, you, you kind of, you still, you still got you for some reason. You get to keep your courage. It’s kind of weird. Yeah. A Sunday morning tithes at Church of Chevon Jeremy at World $5. Oh, I wish I had some good God stuff to say, uh, to post. Maybe there’s something in here about Jesus I can find.

Mattew Souza (29:42):

Oh, that would be good. You have like a, um,

Sevan Matossian (29:45):

A Jesus section. Yeah. For my base. Yeah.

Mattew Souza (29:47):

Thank you for Save me. As, as you knew. I had nowhere to go with that. I didn’t even know what it was called. Scripture. Is that what it is? Like? Yeah, like a reading, like a scripture reading every Sunday.

Sevan Matossian (29:58):

Uh, this just says great.
