Josh Bridges (00:00):
I’m saying. Yeah, I was on. And you weren’t even there yet.
Sevan Matossian (00:03):
Josh Bridges (00:04):
Yeah. No, that’s the truth, bro. That’s the truth. Are you here? My my, are you picking me up? Good. I don’t know if close enough.
Sevan Matossian (00:11):
I’m picking up. Great.
Josh Bridges (00:13):
You are picking up. Great. Look at you,
Sevan Matossian (00:14):
Dude. You, you look like I just interrupted you from doing something.
Josh Bridges (00:18):
Sevan Matossian (00:19):
Like, were you in the garage making something?
Josh Bridges (00:21):
<laugh>? I’m gonna be soon. I did just get an order from Rogue.
Sevan Matossian (00:25):
Josh Bridges (00:26):
Sevan Matossian (00:27):
<affirmative>. Is it in the driveway?
Josh Bridges (00:29):
It was. And then last night I had to get it in because today it’s gonna be 68 degrees, but tomorrow it possibly is gonna snow <laugh>
Sevan Matossian (00:36):
68. I think you’re lying
Josh Bridges (00:38):
Sevan Matossian (00:39):
There’s no way.
Josh Bridges (00:40):
That’s the facts buddy.
Sevan Matossian (00:42):
For those of you who don’t know, Josh has moved to, uh, one of the coldest places on Planet Earth.
Josh Bridges (00:47):
False. It’s actually one of the, it’s one of the sont places on Planet
Sevan Matossian (00:51):
Earth. Oh, I knew you were gonna say something like that.
Josh Bridges (00:53):
That’s just a Denver thing to say, right? Nowadays,
Sevan Matossian (00:57):
Do you get a lot of sunny days?
Josh Bridges (00:58):
Dude, it’s always sunny.
Sevan Matossian (01:01):
Hey, are you sick?
Josh Bridges (01:02):
No. Just, I just, I mean, I mean, I’m not, I’m not completely awake.
Sevan Matossian (01:06):
Hey, when yours, when people, I don’t like to tell people I’m sick because other people’s sick is like so different than my sick.
Josh Bridges (01:14):
Oh yeah. It’s way worse. And I don’t wanna be around it.
Sevan Matossian (01:16):
What other people’s sickness? Yeah.
Josh Bridges (01:18):
Sevan Matossian (01:19):
Yeah. Than you would hate me because like, I don’t care.
Josh Bridges (01:22):
Get your sickness and fuck away from me.
Sevan Matossian (01:24):
So, so my, my, I I text the skateboard instructor last night and I said, Hey, it’s gonna be sunny tomorrow. Meet me at the skate park. And he goes, dude, I’m really sick. And I go, do you feel bad? He goes, no. He goes, but I have like all the symptoms and I’m snotty. I’m like, dude, I don’t give a fuck
Josh Bridges (01:38):
Sevan Matossian (01:40):
He’s all really, I’m like, dude,
Josh Bridges (01:41):
Yeah. Gimme that cup of coffee. I’ll lick the rim right now.
Sevan Matossian (01:44):
Totally. Like, I, like I, my sickness is, doesn’t, um, doesn’t affect anything on, I’ll go to the gym and blow snot rockets. Like, I don’t care. I’ll touch anything. I don’t like, don’t you guys are all pussies. You
Josh Bridges (01:57):
My an asshole.
Sevan Matossian (01:59):
No, listen, you guys don’t get it. Uh,
Josh Bridges (02:02):
I get it. You’re an asshole.
Sevan Matossian (02:04):
My, my, I don’t put shopping carts away. I go out when I’m sick and I park in the handicap spots and
Josh Bridges (02:09):
Sevan Matossian (02:10):
Give a fuck. No. Listen,
Josh Bridges (02:11):
Sevan Matossian (02:13):
You fought for my freedom and I’m gonna fucking take advantage of it. I was my jiujitsu, my kids’ Jiujitsu instructors. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, I don’t know if I’m using this word right. But I, I think I’m cool when I use it. They are vectors for sickness.
Josh Bridges (02:26):
Sevan Matossian (02:27):
All the sickness comes to them and then it all goes out every day. And I’m like, yeah, fuck.
Josh Bridges (02:32):
All those little f Every one of those little guys are just fucking it. Little, little germs. Little balls of germs.
Sevan Matossian (02:38):
Bring it <laugh> one of Yeah. Just bring it.
Josh Bridges (02:41):
Sevan Matossian (02:42):
Josh Bridges (02:43):
I mean, if that’s what how you feel, then that’s how you feel, man. I mean, if you wanna be that guy
Sevan Matossian (02:46):
Yeah. David Re you’re a pussy real man. Never gets sick. That must be directed at, at, uh, Josh
Josh Bridges (02:51):
<laugh>. I don’t get sick.
Sevan Matossian (02:53):
Uh, Andrew Hiller already taking quotes. You fought for my freedom. I’m gonna take advantage of it.
Josh Bridges (03:00):
Sevan Matossian (03:02):
Look at this shirt.
Josh Bridges (03:05):
Dear Bill and Katie, was that one of your, is that your, one of yours?
Sevan Matossian (03:08):
Yeah. We don’t sell it. It’s custom. It’s a custom Deer bill.
Josh Bridges (03:11):
Oh. Why, why did you guys, do you say that a lot?
Sevan Matossian (03:14):
Yeah. Just occasionally it comes up like, if I need a piece of equipment or if I see something on their side, I like, I, I, I open with a, I don’t know what this word means either, but I’ll just say it. A soliloquy
Josh Bridges (03:24):
I love, um, I love when I see the bat symbols on any of my shit. I love it.
Sevan Matossian (03:29):
<laugh>. People calling like,
Josh Bridges (03:33):
Cause it’s, cause it’s funny cuz like, people think I give a fuck. It’s like, Hey. Oh, call the bat boy. Yeah, give him a call.
Sevan Matossian (03:39):
There’s no way Hillary comes over and talks shit to you. He’s, he’s, I don’t think Hillary’s scared of anyone, but he’s definitely scared of you. I
Josh Bridges (03:45):
Love it when you uh,
Sevan Matossian (03:46):
He’s definitely scared of you.
Josh Bridges (03:48):
I love it when you I’m trying to get him on here. I know what you’re doing. <laugh>. Um,
Sevan Matossian (03:52):
Josh Bridges (03:54):
I got, I got, I got one because I did, I got like 190 reps on the burpee shuttle run thing. And like, even my, even my manager was like, I’m gonna have to fucking see video of this. And I’m like, why would I fucking lie? I’m not even doing the open. I could give two fucks.
Sevan Matossian (04:10):
It was impressive.
Josh Bridges (04:11):
Thank you. I had to do a sidestep every, every back and forth.
Sevan Matossian (04:17):
What? What do you mean?
Josh Bridges (04:18):
I had to go through a door.
Sevan Matossian (04:20):
Oh, oh, oh. For the, for the 25 feet.
Josh Bridges (04:23):
For the 25 feet? Yeah.
Sevan Matossian (04:24):
Oh, that’s awesome. No, no one has ever seen Hillary and Bridges in the same place.
Josh Bridges (04:30):
Never could be the same person. We could be the same one.
Sevan Matossian (04:33):
Josh Bridges (04:33):
This is completely fake. This shit is just fake. I just blew it on.
Sevan Matossian (04:37):
Um, I was, uh, oh, I should show you something. Someone said to me, uh, uh, should we start hot? Did we start hot?
Josh Bridges (04:49):
Fuck yeah, let’s send it. What? Who’s, uh, who for the open workouts, who did Hiller go after? Anybody good.
Sevan Matossian (04:55):
Um, just after CrossFit, I don’t know if you’re watching the leaderboard, but it’s just a mess. The leaderboard basically is just, doesn’t matter at all. Whether it comes to the terms of, um, people validating the scores, people sending in fake videos. Uh, the names are fake. I mean, he’s on the leaderboard and he’s juiced up and he’s in the quarter finals and he openly takes steroids. Um, it’s the whole,
Josh Bridges (05:21):
And, and he is not on the, uh, outta season protocol testing,
Sevan Matossian (05:25):
But no, probably not. I, I don’t know. But j just in so many ways, it’s just a fucking mess, Josh. And like, I don’t know if you saw, but um, like if you take all of Rich’s open scores and add ’em up, he did worse this year. Then all of those scores put together and basically, and you can find that in a lot of places. And basically people are saying like, yeah, you changed the test so fucking much that it really doesn’t test your fitness relative to previous years. Like the whole communal aspect of it’s gone. Like, you would hope that every year you take the open that that you get a little bit better, a little bit worse. Or you can be like, yeah, I did worse this year cuz my mom died. My dog died. My wife left me. You know what I mean? Yeah. And, but, but you can’t do that this year. There’s dudes who are the fittest they’ve ever been, and they took 10,000 places lower just because of the choice of the programming. And they’re, it, it’s just a fucking mess. So I wouldn’t say he went after anyone in specific, but there’s this, there’s a crew of people who are pretty frustrated.
Josh Bridges (06:16):
I mean, I get it, man. It was, it was weird. I mean, I, I kind of, actually, this was the first year I actually kind of
Sevan Matossian (06:21):
Careful. You’re Mr. CrossFit.
Josh Bridges (06:23):
No, I paid at, I haven’t paid attention since that, drastically since like 2020 because of knowing that I wasn’t gonna do it. Um, I just can’t, I can’t do certain movements anymore. And so I can lose interest if I’m not able to compete in it. And this year I was like, you know what? I, I love CrossFit. I love the ideology behind CrossFit. I love what it stands for. I love what it’s created. I love, uh, I don’t think that there’s a better fitness regiment out there in the world than CrossFit. Um, so I, uh, I am just, I’m not quite on the teet like you are, you know, because you still love like the corporation of Corp of CrossFit. I just loved the ideology behind it. But, uh,
Sevan Matossian (07:03):
That was heat. That was very classy the way you said that.
Josh Bridges (07:06):
<laugh>. But, um, yeah, so this year I kind of paid attention and the open just, yeah. It was just, I don’t know. The workouts were interesting. Um, I guess is the only way to put it. Uh, yeah. And, and I didn’t even realize there was only three weeks too. And then the quarter finals, I mean, yeah. Just, it didn’t seem like it was, um, for three workouts. I think I could have put together three better workouts. But that’s easy to do, right? Um, armchair quarterback, but I don’t know
Sevan Matossian (07:39):
The, let me, let me show you this real quick. Someone ma someone, someone. Oh, nope, not that. Don’t share your email. Someone
Josh Bridges (07:46):
Sevan Matossian (07:47):
Uh, hold on. Lemme, lemme see if I can find this. Uh, share screen, um, window. Oh, here we go. Someone made this for me.
Josh Bridges (07:57):
Sevan Matossian (07:59):
That’s my face on Danny Spiegel’s body
Josh Bridges (08:02):
Sevan Matossian (08:06):
Hold on. Let me see if you guys saw anything from my, uh, nah, you, you guys didn’t see anything in my emails cuz screenshot away. I don’t give a fuck. Um, yeah, it’s pretty good, right? Hey, it’s not like Adrian’s not capable.
Josh Bridges (08:21):
You know, Adrian, you know Adrian better than I do. I don’t know. I mean, I know him.
Sevan Matossian (08:26):
Oh yeah. You and Adrian have had some hiccups. Hiccups.
Josh Bridges (08:29):
I don’t wanna see he had any hiccups. I I mean,
Sevan Matossian (08:32):
Josh Bridges (08:32):
Mean I didn’t, I didn’t, I didn’t think he was the best head judge. I <laugh> I thought that he, I think a, i, I don’t know. I’m trying to put this like correct, you know, like, I don’t wanna, I don’t dislike Adrian. I thought when it came to being a judge, he was solely focused on hoping that his judges always did, were always correct all the time. Instead of being like, Hey, I just want the right outcome to have happened. And I, that’s what really got under my skin where it doesn’t matter if it was only the athlete or the judge, as long as the right call is made, that’s all I cared about. And he didn’t care about that. He cared about his judges always having the right, like basically a hundred percent authority, which is so insane to me because that’s the only sport you’ll ever see that. Right. That’s why there are instant replays in, in other sports and things like that. And so you
Sevan Matossian (09:26):
Mean a loyalty to the judge instead of to the truth?
Josh Bridges (09:28):
Yeah, exactly. Like and, and a judge should, it should only be looking for the right answer. Not who has the right answer.
Sevan Matossian (09:36):
Fair. There. There is a, um, there i I I feel like, um, you, there was something interesting that happened at the games last year that I don’t ever remember happening at the games. They had a sandbag lift, right? Do you remember that thing
Josh Bridges (09:51):
Last year? The, the one where they, up the capitol? The Capitol one?
Sevan Matossian (09:55):
No, no, no, no. They were in the
Josh Bridges (09:56):
Oh. Oh, no, no. The one rep Max. The one rep Mac. Yes.
Sevan Matossian (09:58):
Yes. That one that Danny Spiegel did. Two 50. That insane lift, right? Yes. And Gee did And gee and um, I don’t know if it was Madis or someone did a crazy lift.
Josh Bridges (10:05):
No, it was, uh, gee and Bikowski and, um,
Sevan Matossian (10:09):
Josh Bridges (10:10):
No, no. The, the Matthew and uh,
Sevan Matossian (10:13):
Oh yeah. Nick Matthews.
Josh Bridges (10:14):
Nick Nick Matthews. Yeah.
Sevan Matossian (10:15):
Yeah. Okay. Matthew Nichols is good though too. I like that. Nick Matthews is the guy who wears the half shirt. Matthew Nichols is the guy who wears the full shirt. God, you must hate the half shirt.
Josh Bridges (10:24):
I don’t hate it. I like, I like that dude. I I think Nick Matthews is a fucking stud. Oh,
Sevan Matossian (10:28):
Josh Bridges (10:28):
That shirt. Cause he, he’s so unassuming. Whatever man. Like, I, I
Sevan Matossian (10:32):
Don’t understand you. You’ve got God, you’ve fallen in love. Your kids are getting older. You’re in Denver, you’re fucking mess. You want Shell is the man
Josh Bridges (10:40):
Used to be. You just want me to talk shit <laugh>. That’s all <laugh>. No, man. I, I like Nick Matthews. He’s a stud man. That dude is a, he’s legit. I mean, cuz he’s so unassuming. Did you think he was gonna pick up a 350 pounds?
Sevan Matossian (10:52):
Josh Bridges (10:52):
Look at walking next to that guy. No. You got alligator arms like me.
Sevan Matossian (10:57):
Not only that, but I was, uh, surprised he made it to the games and I wasn’t thinking he was gonna do shit there. I thought it was like an accident and then he went there and fucking kicked ass.
Josh Bridges (11:04):
Yeah. What? And he, cuz he was a step in right from one of
Sevan Matossian (11:08):
The events. Something like that. Like someone tested positive or broke their leg or something. Yeah.
Josh Bridges (11:13):
And he came, he stepped up or he was like the bat. The next guy in line,
Sevan Matossian (11:17):
Uh, crop top is gay as fuck.
Josh Bridges (11:20):
Sevan Matossian (11:21):
Cool. But if he’s gay, then it’s perfect. Um, so what they had for the sandbag, Josh, was, is that there was no definitive number of lifts.
Josh Bridges (11:31):
Sevan Matossian (11:32):
Isn’t that weird? For a competition. And I thought, oh, that’s a, that, that is kind of Adrian’s stamp on it. Cuz he is kind of like that. Like, well, um, you know what I mean? Does isn’t that weird for a competition you were allowed to lift as many times as you wanted
Josh Bridges (11:47):
In the 30 seconds, you mean?
Sevan Matossian (11:48):
No, there was no time dude.
Josh Bridges (11:51):
There was no
Sevan Matossian (11:51):
Time. There was no, there it was, it was, it was just, it was a soft time.
Josh Bridges (11:57):
Sevan Matossian (11:58):
It was like, Hey, do you feel like you got another lift and you lift? And so he’s, he’s blurring that line between these strict rules and that, you know, you would see from someone like Dave versus like, Hey, the spirit of the competition is, is, is now we’re leading more that way. And you can see it in, in everything.
Josh Bridges (12:14):
Yeah. And I, uh, I mean, I get it. Like I, that is a weird odd object. Um, and it ca and it did take some people, some like having that no time domain probably helped the show a little bit, but I don’t know. Yeah. I think I would’ve had a time domain in there and been like, listen, like you only get two attempts or one attempt or, or if it’s not gonna be a time domain, it’s gonna be an attempt. An attempt number. Yeah. Um, I just thought the games this year had too many, too many little like tricks, I guess is the only way to really put it. And if you figured out the trick a lot of times you did better in the workout. And I don’t think that’s what the CrossFit games is about. It’s about finding the fittest human beings on earth.
Um, I don’t think doing a fucking jump rope where you’ve switched your arms back and forth has anything to do with being athletic. Uh, right. And that’s, and that’s who did well in the workout. If you figured out how to switch your arms back and forth on a jump rope. I think that is a little silly in my eyes. I think you could, you could figure out a better way to put jump roping into a workout if that’s what you want to do. Um, so I don’t know. Yeah. I had a, I had a hard time with, uh, some of the workouts this year. I just thought that there was too many. Like, I’m okay with having one or two of those. Hey, you gotta figure it out too. You gotta you gotta show that you’re, um, able to adapt. But it shouldn’t be in. I felt like there’s, it’s just too, too many of them this year.
Sevan Matossian (13:48):
There were, there were definitely a lot of new things introduced. Uh, Mike Mcca McCaskey saw. I thought sev took offense to calling things gay. Listen, if you’re calling Nick Matthews gay because you think, uh, that, that that shirt is a courtship tool for, um, to court other men, then it’s the proper use of the word gay. If you just don’t like the rims on someone’s car and you call them gay, then what you’re insinuating is that, um, hooking up with other men is bad. And that’s the part I don’t like, like just use the word right. But do I think a crop top is a way of cording other for when a man wears that, that’s a way of cording other men to slam you in the ass. I do. <laugh> do I think then it’s used properly? <laugh> and I and I’m okay with that.
Josh Bridges (14:23):
Sevan Matossian (14:24):
It’s just my, um, I it’s just my,
Josh Bridges (14:28):
I’ll tell you what, how simonon how old are you?
Sevan Matossian (14:30):
Josh Bridges (14:31):
Dude, that hairline is looking good, bro.
Sevan Matossian (14:33):
I’m gonna be fitty one here, uh, in a few days.
Josh Bridges (14:35):
I’m, I’m proud of you with that hairline.
Sevan Matossian (14:38):
Thank you. It comes with other hair.
Josh Bridges (14:41):
I can see that
Sevan Matossian (14:43):
Dude. My, my kids the other day I was walking around the house with my shirt off. They’re like, can we shave your back
Josh Bridges (14:48):
Sevan Matossian (14:51):
One of my kids in particular, I’m like, yeah, go for it.
Josh Bridges (14:54):
Oh man, you let him let him
Sevan Matossian (14:56):
Go. Two six year old. Yeah. Two six year olds with like a, a Phillips one electric razor just for fucking 20 minutes just laughing their ass off.
Josh Bridges (15:03):
How proud would you,
Sevan Matossian (15:05):
Josh Bridges (15:05):
Ahead. How proud would you be if you had like, walked, walked over to the mirror and like, you know, to look and look back to see what they did and they fucking shaved the dick and balls into you? <laugh>. <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (15:17):
I would’ve been so proud.
Josh Bridges (15:18):
So proud, so proud.
Sevan Matossian (15:20):
Anything you’ve shaved the word bitch on my back. I would’ve been so proud.
Josh Bridges (15:24):
Sevan Matossian (15:25):
Draw Drew, drew Sasquatch with my hair.
Josh Bridges (15:28):
Sevan Matossian (15:29):
Uh, hey dude, I had ’em, uh, shave me on, on on my bed. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. And then my wife’s like, I’m like, Hey, the boys shaved my back. It was ridiculous. And she goes, oh, where? And I’m like, oh, fuck
Josh Bridges (15:40):
Yeah, <laugh> nailed
Sevan Matossian (15:41):
It. And I’m like, on the bed. She’s like, what’d you do with the hair
Josh Bridges (15:45):
Sevan Matossian (15:45):
But I just like swept it off on like a scumbag. I love it. That didn’t go over well.
Josh Bridges (15:55):
Sevan Matossian (15:56):
Um, did you watch the Chris Rock special?
Josh Bridges (15:59):
Sevan Matossian (16:00):
Um, there’s something in there. There’s, there’s two, two things I was, I was in that made me, uh, topics I wanted to bring up with you.
Josh Bridges (16:09):
What was, uh, where was it on,
Sevan Matossian (16:10):
Uh, Netflix. It’s good. It’s worth watching. Okay. It’s worth watching. It’s new. Okay. Um, one of the things he says in there, Josh, is that there’s that, uh, where, where people pe people want attention. Right. And I started thinking, um, of these two ideas of like, uh, getting attention, um, attention for attention’s sake, and then attention for like, you know, doing shit. And like attention for attention’s sake is, is something that I avoid for like the plague. Like, you know what I mean? Like, I don’t want to go out and anyone to stare at me unless like I’m juggling six balls. You know what I mean? Or
Josh Bridges (16:53):
Yeah. You are
Sevan Matossian (16:54):
<laugh>. Like, I want to be, I want to, I want to control the attention I get. I want to perform, I want to be a monkey performing monkey. Okay. I don’t want attention for fucking attention’s sake. Yeah. Right, right. Um, and so the four ways he talks about getting attention, which I thought was fascinating, was, uh, in, in this order he said them, uh, show your ass.
Josh Bridges (17:17):
Sevan Matossian (17:17):
<affirmative>. Right? And so we’re seeing that, right?
Josh Bridges (17:20):
Sevan Matossian (17:21):
And we’re seeing that, um, we’re seeing that, uh, you know, especially around a lot of the female athletes. Like, they’re kind of like torn between showing their ass and not, but, but we’ll get to some of the other two. The other one is, um, infamy. And that’s a tough one to have attention for. That’s like what happened to Paris Hilton, right? And, and, and, um, and, uh, the Kardashians, the sex tape comes out mm-hmm. <affirmative>. So then now you’re infamous. Right. Or, or like, you know, they’re shooting up a school,
Josh Bridges (17:47):
Sevan Matossian (17:49):
So, so you have show your ass, you have infamy, you have three be the best in the world at something. Right? That’s Serena Williams.
Josh Bridges (17:55):
Sevan Matossian (17:56):
Right. Just fucking <laugh>.
Josh Bridges (17:57):
Interesting. Per, are you just picking women right now?
Sevan Matossian (18:00):
Uh, no. Not on, not on purpose, but, uh, uh, I just, let me think of a dude who’s, uh, um, tiger Woods. Tiger Woods. Yeah. There
Josh Bridges (18:07):
Sevan Matossian (18:08):
Justin Hoffman. Right? Um, I’m, um, I’m trying to think of, do
Josh Bridges (18:11):
We have Justin Hoffman?
Sevan Matossian (18:13):
I know an actor. You know what I mean? Is there anyone who’s like someone who’s contributed something just insanely to um, uh, society? Uh, but Brian Stosh,
Josh Bridges (18:23):
Sevan Matossian (18:23):
Josh Bridges (18:23):
Right? Yeah. Tosh Tosh got to hang out with him the other day.
Sevan Matossian (18:27):
He hasn’t shown his ass, but he’s done some stuff to become infamous and he’s done some stuff that’s, um, to make himself, uh, s super talented right. At, at what he does. And then, and then what was the fourth one? Uh, maybe someone, uh, show your ass. Infamy. Super. Oh, play the victim.
Josh Bridges (18:44):
Hmm. Victim. There we go. That’s
Sevan Matossian (18:46):
A big, the victim.
Josh Bridges (18:46):
That’s a big one these days. That’s like a badge of honor. People wanna be victims.
Sevan Matossian (18:50):
So like, um, Jesse, uh, uh, juicy s Moett. Do you know who that is? Yeah. Do you
Josh Bridges (18:54):
Remember him? I heard that. I read and I read the story how he wanted to be the face of, uh, what was it?
Sevan Matossian (19:00):
Um, maybe gay men?
Josh Bridges (19:01):
No, like basic,
Sevan Matossian (19:03):
Josh Bridges (19:04):
Maybe racism. I can’t, it was something like that. Yeah. He wanted to be the face
Sevan Matossian (19:07):
Of it. Right? He hired two black dudes. Yeah. At one in the morning, two like, like foreign black dudes, like from Africa
Josh Bridges (19:13):
Sevan Matossian (19:14):
To, to put a noose around him. Call him a faggot. Yeah. Uh, and then, and but then the whole thing ended up being a setup because he wanted attention for, um, for victim. So
Josh Bridges (19:28):
What do you think is the worst one? Or Sorry, go ahead. Let me, let me, can let
Sevan Matossian (19:31):
You No, no, go ahead. Go ahead. We can, we can take, but I was gonna talk to you about, I wanna this eventually we’ll get to our boys. Yeah. Like, what are we gonna like? But, but, but we’ll get there in a second. Um, I was, I really, when I started thinking about this, I started thinking about, um, when I heard it, um, I immediately thought of Danny Spiegel. She shows her ass. Um, she plays the victim and she’s crazy talented. I don’t know if you’ve seen this new tear campaign, but it’s all about just playing the victim. It’s kind of funny. And, and, but they, they couch it in terms of women empowerment. But, but I, but I was thinking if she released a sex tape, she would have all four.
Josh Bridges (20:06):
She plays the victim.
Sevan Matossian (20:07):
Uh, Danny. I think so. Yeah. There’s this, um, uh, she has this whole video out. I mean, I can give you a million examples, but she has this whole video out where she says, don’t judge a woman for her body. Judge what the body can do. And it’s like, I, I’ll judge it for fucking both. What’s this? You have this thing against beautiful bodies. And ever since I’ve been a girl, I’ve been told what to eat, how to talk, how to act, how to behave. And it’s all, it’s like, so have all the boys. Like, but, but it’s couching it in this, like, it’s putting women in this like, victim role. It’s like, dude, we’re so far beyond that. It’s just fucking people here. Like
Josh Bridges (20:40):
Yeah. I mean, I think, I think right now in society, Vic being a victim is a badge of honor. Right? I mean, if you look at, uh, the b l m, if you look at, there’s so many different, everyone wants to be a victim, right? And it’s just, it’s an, it’s absolutely insane to me why anybody would ever want to be a victim instead of just like taking a hold of your life and going after whatever you want and, and stop pointing the finger outwards and pointing it inward. Like what? Like backwards,
Sevan Matossian (21:10):
Especially amaz, especially amazing people like her. Like she is fucking amazing. Yeah. She’s, I her body’s insane how it looks, how it functions. Her smiles, her presence, her posture, her demeanor. Why not make a three minute video just telling us how great you are and how you got there.
Josh Bridges (21:26):
Yeah. I mean, it’s, it’s, it’s crazy to me, right? Instead of being, I’m not where I am because of whatever reason that you wanna pick and choose from. Yeah. You know, why not go after Hey, like, look where I am. Look, this is how I got here. Um, I agree, man. I, I, it’s weird. I think it’s insane. I have no idea. Like, everyone could pick something and point the finger about and be see like, this is not, this is where I’m at. Be because of this and not point it back at yourself and say, this is where I’m at because of me, because of some choice that I made in some aspect of my life. Um, it’s insane. It’s absolutely insane. There
Sevan Matossian (22:03):
Were, there was a, there was a, I don’t wanna name names, but during your reign in CrossFit, there were other small athletes who used the small card and you never used the small card.
Josh Bridges (22:13):
Sevan Matossian (22:14):
They they leaned on it. They lived
Josh Bridges (22:15):
On it. Yeah. Yeah. They wanted their excuse, right? That was is their, is their excuse. Yeah. I remember
Sevan Matossian (22:19):
It was their shirt. I
Josh Bridges (22:21):
Mean, <laugh> Dan or, um, Dave would come to me and he, he would look at me and he’d be like, oh, the athletes are, some athletes are bitching because either the weights were too heavy or the box were, was too hot. Whatever, whatever Excuse that a short person can make. Yeah. We’re we’re, we’re fucking CrossFit like at its core, man, if there’s, there is a, there is some advantage to being short in this, in this, uh, in this sport. And I would look at him and be like, fucking make ’em heavier. Make the boxes higher. I don’t fucking care. I want to beat people at what they don’t ever assume me to be good at. Yeah. So, I don’t know. I just, I I’ve used it to fuel instead of actually using it as a fucking crutch ever. Right? Like, no one’s ever going to fucking not want me on their team because I’m short. You know, like ever since that was always since I was a little kid, man. I just remember always thinking like, these fucking big dudes aren’t gonna be better than me because they’re tall. Fuck that.
Sevan Matossian (23:17):
Let me sh let me show you this to, to say something crazy positive about, um, the CrossFit games too. Look at this. Uh, look at this leaderboard here. You got, uh, the, the medium size dude, Jeffrey Adler in first place I call you got the giant dude Tola <laugh>, and then you got the fucking Midget Cola. Martins

Sevan Matossian (24:20):

I fucking like, make him look like a king <laugh>, just softball questions. Beautiful love on him. Softball, <laugh>. I make him seem like an intellectual giant. And then he goes on these other shows and he just comes across like an alligator. It’s like,
Josh Bridges (24:41):
What, what shows is he on?
Sevan Matossian (24:43):
Which shows, I don’t know. I’m not saying
Josh Bridges (24:44):

Sevan Matossian (24:46):
Josh Bridges (24:47):
Sevan Matossian (24:47):
Josh Bridges (24:49):
I like how you put my picture up on the, uh, whatever Instagram or whatever the fuck you put it up on. And you’ve got paper streete coffee as I’m holding my good dude’s cup.
Sevan Matossian (24:57):
I took it off. I just said I I changed the title to the last good dude.
Josh Bridges (25:01):
There you go. I like it.
Sevan Matossian (25:02):
Yeah. I didn’t, I sometimes I don’t come up with these. Um, um, these titles A wad zombie. It’s just how Danny copes with her white privilege. I understand.
Josh Bridges (25:11):
Sevan Matossian (25:12):
Josh Bridges (25:13):
Sevan Matossian (25:13):
Um, uh, Trish, uh, Josh, I need a model for my senior citizen art class. Will you be my model? My husband Ron will be your fluffer. Let’s make you infamous
Josh Bridges (25:23):
Sevan Matossian (25:24):
4 99, 5
Josh Bridges (25:26):
Bucks. I’m hidden truck. <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (25:28):
<laugh>, uh, delve. Good morning dudes. Good morning. Um, Josh, so this takes me to, um, our kids, which I was thinking the tool, we should be giving them tools that are lifelong tools, right? That kind of won’t erode. And sometimes I think all this physical shit is like, that shit erodes, right? No, I mean there’s value. No. Maybe there should be a more premium on playing the flute and speaking Spanish
Josh Bridges (26:00):
Than working out.
Sevan Matossian (26:01):
Than working out. No, no.
Josh Bridges (26:03):
Working out is your health man. Like I think, I think that you should be a well-rounded person. So I don’t think playing an instrument is a bad thing, but I don’t think you should ever neglect your health. And I think that working out is so good for you. I think that we have to emphasize more on, on working out. It doesn’t have to be high intensity is CrossFit, but I think moving, you know, like I don’t think we should ever neglect that. Could you imagine if you didn’t work out or didn’t do things? The, the, the limited amount of shit you could be able to do around your house by yourself?
Sevan Matossian (26:42):
Like, gimme an example. Like take the ladder out, put it up and climb it. Yeah.
Josh Bridges (26:45):
Like fucking move a chair. Like move like a bigger chair. You know, like, not like a kitchen table chair, but like move a chair. Like yesterday I had to fucking move the, I got, um, like a storage kettlebell and dumbbell rack in my garage. The fucking thing weighed a hundred pounds and it was awkward. Right. I had to pick it up by myself and move it, but like, if I didn’t work out or didn’t use have physical strength, like I, it would’ve sat there all day until I had a buddy be able to come over and pick it up with me. Right. You know, like, I don’t know man. I think that the, uh, I think we should put more emphasis on working out. I think it should be a fucking mandatory thing that every person has to do every day.
Sevan Matossian (27:25):
And, and you know what’s funny is we take that shit for granted. I was actually looking at a picture, uh, the other day. It was last night of me walking around with my wife on my shoulders. Yeah. And I was like, oh shit. I bet you so many fucking people can’t do that.
Josh Bridges (27:39):
Sevan Matossian (27:40):
Can’t put their fucking wife on their shoulders and walk
Josh Bridges (27:42):
Around. Right. I agree. It’s crazy, man.
Sevan Matossian (27:47):
I, I, I’ve just been been thinking, man, I need to make sure I give them skills outside of, I mean, I, I, you know, jiujitsu tennis and the skateboarding, like, I need to real, and they do. They play the piano a lot. And, but I was like, man, I need to even, like, I need to make sure that they have a insane grasp on grammar and math in those same ways. Because those are tools regardless of your situation, your physical situation or your age or your sickness or whatever, they’re, they’re still usable.
Josh Bridges (28:20):
Yeah, I agree. I think that, I don’t think that only being physically fit is the only thing you should teach children. You know? I mean, I think be making ’em try to make ’em good humans. Um, well
Sevan Matossian (28:30):
Josh Bridges (28:31):
You know, right.
Sevan Matossian (28:32):
Are they kids? Good
Josh Bridges (28:32):
Kids? They’re great kids. It’s like I see other kids and I’m not like trying to like
Sevan Matossian (28:39):
Say, no, tell
Josh Bridges (28:39):
Me. My kids are the best. They’re not. But they’re, they’re so well mannered. They’re so well respected. They like, they just like respectful. They, uh, ah, they’re just great kids, man. Like Yeah. The, and the, and they’re, my older one is start, you know, he’s 12. He is about to be 13 and he’s starting to get that testosterone coming in and you know, he’ll he, he, he probably back talks his mom a little more than he talks me, but he knows dad will <laugh> lay the hand <laugh>. He knows, he knows, he knows dad will lay the hammer down if he needs to. And, um, you know, like, but you, they’re just, they’re just great kids man. They, they, they aren’t, you know, they aren’t disrespectful to their teachers, uh, for the most part here and there. They’ll get a little rowdy right. As every 12 year old kid is gonna test the waters and see what they can get away with.
(29:25): Right, right. They’re just, yeah, they’re great kids. And like, I don’t know man, I, um, I was at a basketball game the other day and um, in between Hals, it was a li it was my son’s basketball tournament. And in between Hals right, all the kids are with their coaches. They get, they get their two minutes or three minutes, whatever, and all these other kids swarm the basketball court and start shooting baskets. Well, you know, they’re not oftentimes a lot of times cuz they’re younger kids and, um, the, the refs are like, get off the court. Get off the court. And this fucking little punk kid, man, I don’t know how old he was.
