REVIEW of The Dave Castro WIR Jan 14th, 2024

Brian Spin (00:00):

That’s the most I would get at any night down in Miami.

Sevan Matossian (00:04):

Bam. We’re like, really? That’s how much you were sleeping? Four hours?

Brian Spin (00:07):


Sevan Matossian (00:08):

Wow. Bill Grundler. Oh, I can’t believe I did that right, because you

Bill Grundler (00:12):

Did that. Right. Look at that.

Sevan Matossian (00:13):

It’s always the opposite. Brian Spin, barbell spin already spent a lot of time with Brian, virtually actually am more than normal with Bill.

Bill Grundler (00:25):

That was cool.

Sevan Matossian (00:27):

And then last night, totally out of character because normally Mr. Dave Castro releases these on a Monday. He releases the January 14th, 2024 week in review. Oh shit. The loss of two Navy Seals overseas, programming the games and answering comments. Alright, so this is going to be a quick one. Oh good. What are you going to do when the show is over? Bill in 30 minutes when this shit’s over. Whatcha are you doing? You keep going back to teaching?

Bill Grundler (00:55):

Yeah, I’m going to go try to work out and

Sevan Matossian (00:57):

Oh, me too.

Bill Grundler (00:58):

Programming and then get ready for the classes tonight. Me

Sevan Matossian (01:00):

Too. You already know what you’re going to do.

Bill Grundler (01:02):

Yeah, I’ll do what I program

Sevan Matossian (01:05):

For the rest, rest of the class. What are you going to do today after the show’s over? What do you hope?

Bill Grundler (01:09):

Hopefully get more rest.

Sevan Matossian (01:10):

Oh good. Yeah, I was thinking about I’ll either sleep or work out. That’s a good point. Alright, give this a thumbs up ladies and gentlemen. Let the show begin

Dave Castro (01:26):

Week in review. January 14th, 2024. I just filmed this, just 15 minutes doing one and then I checked the audio and it was shit. This thing wasn’t working.

Sevan Matossian (01:38):

Oh, so he’s bummed. No one likes to do that shit twice, right? Oh

Bill Grundler (01:41):

Dude is so bad. He said he did like 15 minutes of it too. That sucks.

Sevan Matossian (01:46):

Yeah, he’s bummed. Alright, so expect low energy. He’s already bummed. Hi Austin. Hey. What’s up dude? How are you? So

Bill Grundler (01:52):

Are we doing 1.50

Sevan Matossian (01:55):

No. 1.25.

Bill Grundler (02:00):

Well, he’s not Pedro, so you could probably do 1.5.

Sevan Matossian (02:03):

I tried one five last week. I couldn’t do it.

Bill Grundler (02:06):

Really? Oh,

Sevan Matossian (02:07):

Okay. You want to do one five? You in a hurry?

Bill Grundler (02:09):

Well, I’m not in a hurry. I’m good. I’m good.

Sevan Matossian (02:12):

Bill’s good. Yeah. Fail to prepare. Prepare to fail. I don’t know if that’s appropriate. Yeah, episode four. Holy shit was so good. Yeah. Telling you. Telling you. Thank you. I appreciate it. I humbly share with you I’m the greatest ever. Who did the behind the scenes. Humbly. Huh? Humbly. Thank you though. I do appreciate you saying that. Jess Pearson, rn. Hope if I ever needed a catheter, you’re in the ER taking care of me. Always like a CrossFitter doing the tough shit to me. Okay, here we go. I’m going to have a mole looked at tomorrow. You guys ever had a mole looked at by a doctor?

Bill Grundler (02:53):


Sevan Matossian (02:55):

I feel like I’m going. Are you

Bill Grundler (02:56):


Sevan Matossian (02:57):

Yeah, I feel like I’m getting an STD check or something, you know what I mean? I mean it’s not on my dick, it’s on my back, but you know what I mean? It’s the same kind of like I got AIDS tested once and I was a virgin, but I still thought I might have aids. You know what I mean? I’m just weird like that. I don’t want to do it. What

Bill Grundler (03:09):

You talking about? You’re a virgin. You got an AIDS test? Yeah. Is it the drug use? Is that what it was?

Sevan Matossian (03:14):

No, it was just, I was fucking, I was born in 72 and just, that’s just shit. The eighties and nineties were scary. I don’t know. I just got an AIDS test.

Bill Grundler (03:21):

Yeah, it was scary if you weren’t a virgin and you were doing drugs.

Sevan Matossian (03:24):

Let me tell you. Hey dude, when I was,

Bill Grundler (03:26):

Was in the same eighties too, man. Come on now. Hey

Sevan Matossian (03:29):

Dude. When I was 10, I found a condom in my dad’s room and one day I put it on in the morning when I woke up just in case I was going to have sex. I tried to keep it on all day. I mean every time I went to the bathroom it was just curled up in a ball in the bottom of my underwear, but then I’d try to put it back on.

Bill Grundler (03:46):

Obviously you didn’t get the sex ed class at that point.

Sevan Matossian (03:49):

I’m over prepared. I’m over prepared. I’m nervous. What did they say about your mole?

Bill Grundler (03:56):

I just asked if it was cancerous and they’re like, oh, let’s look at the outsides of it and see what it looks like. And if they’re worried and they’d cut it and they’d do a biopsy on it did otherwise the doctor would be like, eh, no, that’s fine.

Sevan Matossian (04:08):

Quit me in a pussy.

Bill Grundler (04:09):

Kind of.

Sevan Matossian (04:10):

I would love it if my doctor said that to me. Seriously. That would make me feel so much better than be like, don’t worry, let’s just keep a close eye on it. I would so much rather hear, God, you’re a pussy.

Bill Grundler (04:21):

I mean it would be cool, but it would be a doctor that you would have to know. You know what I mean? They’re not going to do that.

Sevan Matossian (04:26):

Austin Hartman, my girlfriend is an ER nurse. She put a condom catheter on me a while ago. Terrible experience. I think I’d prefer a straight catheter, condom catheter.

Bill Grundler (04:38):


Sevan Matossian (04:39):

God, I’d love to hear the details of that. Why? Whoa. Damn. You ever had a catheter, either of you?

Bill Grundler (04:48):

No, thank God.

Sevan Matossian (04:50):

Fuck. I’ve had one of those too.

Bill Grundler (04:53):


Sevan Matossian (04:53):

What? I was seven. I was in the accident. Is that because you

Bill Grundler (04:56):

Were worried that maybe you were going to have bad pee or something so you had to stick

Sevan Matossian (04:59):

In there and check? No, I was in this bike accident when I was a little kid and I was in the hospital for two weeks and I woke up. They kept me in a coma for three days and I woke up and dude, it was horrible. Dude. You have to let the pee out so slow or it

Bill Grundler (05:16):

Hurts a bike accident.

Sevan Matossian (05:19):

Yeah, bicycle. Bicycle.

Bill Grundler (05:21):

A coma for three days. Yeah. What the fuck?

Sevan Matossian (05:24):

You ever seen my scar? You ever seen my, is it on this side or the other

Bill Grundler (05:28):

Side? I don’t think so. Oh, maybe. Yeah. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (05:34):

I had to have the horseshoe, you know where they fucking cut a horseshoe on the side of your skull and open it up to let the pressure off your fucking big old Armenian brain.

Bill Grundler (05:41):

Damn, that’s a cool story. Well shit, let that shit out.

Sevan Matossian (05:45):

No, I prefer to talk about penis stories.

Bill Grundler (05:47):


Sevan Matossian (05:49):

Downstream. My penis was affected. I crashed on my bike.

Bill Grundler (05:53):

Right. That’s what I was trying to figure out. Trying to connect the dots. I was having a hard time doing that.

Sevan Matossian (05:57):

I almost died. I hit my head on the concrete in a bicycle accident, but I’m just concerned about my penis. The trauma I happened to my penis.

Bill Grundler (06:05):

That’s important stuff. I get it.

Sevan Matossian (06:07):

Why not just put a diaper on me? Why catheter? Seriously.

Bill Grundler (06:16):

Maybe they had to see if you were pissing blood or something. They couldn’t check it through a diaper. Now they got it all in a bag. Look at

Sevan Matossian (06:23):

You. You think you’re the captor of a fire department and now you got all the answers.

Bill Grundler (06:27):

I just pretend like I do.

Sevan Matossian (06:29):

Okay, so what did they say? Did you have cancer? Did they have to lance your shit?

Bill Grundler (06:33):

No. I mean I’ve had one that they did take off and ended up being benign. It was nothing.

Sevan Matossian (06:37):

Were you scared when they called you? They’re like, bill, like this is Dr. Watson. You’re like, okay, we have your mole here and there’s some things I have to share with you about it. Go on

Bill Grundler (06:49):

The most extended whatever conversation. I mean, yeah, I’d probably be a little nervous if they say, yeah, it’s a positive for cancer. I’d be like, okay, now

Sevan Matossian (07:05):

Why aren’t you chiming in spin? Look at your white ass. You got to have some moles and shit and some skin scare.

Brian Spin (07:11):

Nothing so

Sevan Matossian (07:11):

Far. Fucking white dude that or

Brian Spin (07:13):

I’m ignoring it. I don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (07:15):

Yeah, totally. You were just in Miami, you got

Bill Grundler (07:18):

Ignorance, bliss sometimes

Sevan Matossian (07:19):

You got some sunburns there.

Bill Grundler (07:22):

Not with all that rain. You couldn’t get a sunburn. Yeah,

Brian Spin (07:24):

It was only sunny one day. You didn’t see the sun this week.

Bill Grundler (07:29):

Alright. Felt bad for those guys with all that rain. Geez.

Sevan Matossian (07:32):

Okay, so Dave’s pissed because the second time he has to record it. Okay, here we go.

Dave Castro (07:38):

Refilming it. Now it’s Sunday. I am doing this today because tomorrow tonight I’m leaving town and won’t be around. So instead of skipping it, which I’ve done in the past because I’m out of town on a Monday, I’m going to try a new routine where I film them on Sundays if I have the time because I’m leaving town. Hey Dave. Random but important question for you. I know that CrossFit is involved with the army, but there are plans to involve the Navy. I’m currently a flight student in the Navy and physical fitness is not taken seriously, but I feel that if CrossFit was implemented it would benefit the entire military. I’ve been a CrossFitter for 10 years and it’s been a key element in my life both mentally and physically. We’re in talks with a handful of senior leaders in the Navy. I don’t know if it’s going to go anywhere, but would love to expose it to the Navy.


Obviously any other branch that’s interested. We’re currently working with the Army and even when we say we’re working with the army working specifically with 18 Airborne Corps, which they’re a large cohort of the army, but it’s not the entire army we’re working with. We’d love to get to a place where we are working with the entire Army and other branches too. But sometimes if there is not an internal ambassador or someone who really wants the program to happen, it’s hard to pitch and penetrate places that don’t have CrossFit or don’t have an interest in CrossFit. Where I’ve seen success or where I see that we’ve gone in the past in terms of military organizations or even other types of organizations, again, there’s always been this concept of an internal ambassador. So if you have any ideas on how to get more involved with any of the branches or if you’re a senior leader at any of these branches who can make a difference and want to bring us in or not make a difference but can make an impact on getting us involved. Reach out to me and I’d love to talk to you about what we’re doing and how we can help related to that question.

Bill Grundler (09:17):

That’s senior leader right there. It’s key.

Sevan Matossian (09:21):

All politics.

Bill Grundler (09:23):

I’ve done that so much with fire in all the years that I was in fire trying to push it and if the people above you aren’t into it, then it just dies where you are. So I literally had to, the only way I could really push it was from my station because at least I could control that. And so me and my guys were doing it out of my station house. But then even trying to do any sort of a physical fitness, honestly, when you get into a big system, whether it’s public safety or military, it ends up being more of a CYA rather than you need to be a badass. You’re a trained professional athlete to do physical things and that’s the part that gets really hard. I mean even the stuff that SU’s working with a couple of fire departments and I’ve worked with a couple of fire departments, but the only way that that happens is when either one of the chiefs is into it. And so you have a high ranking officer that’s like, Hey, okay, I’m into it. I need to bring someone else in to train anybody to teach everybody. Do the seminars, keep everyone on track, whatever. Or you have some really good connection, you’re really good friends with that officer. That’s the only way that it works. Otherwise they just downplay it and it is terrible. It is an uphill stream all the time.

Sevan Matossian (10:45):

Life never changes after high school. It’s just a popularity contest. You’re like, oh, I can’t wait to get out of high school. It’s not a popularity contest anymore. No, nobody changes. It’s all who.

Bill Grundler (10:57):

Yeah, a hundred percent.

Dave Castro (10:59):

It’s talking

Sevan Matossian (10:59):

About the nature, the general that’s brought it into the army. Dave served in Delta force with him,

Bill Grundler (11:07):

Which that would make sense. I mean it is. They were close. Even the high ranking. If they don’t do it, that’s fine, but they have to buy off on it. They got to understand the benefits of it other than, well we already do something. And

Sevan Matossian (11:20):

Moron. There was morons in the military who say CrossFit’s dangerous. A lot of morons

Bill Grundler (11:25):

There are, but I know that they just switched it and I don’t know if Austin put that up there, but I think that they just changed their entry level test stuff for a lot of the militaries going from the classic, how many pushups can you do in two minutes and how many sit-ups and what’s your wall sit? That kind of crap to a little bit more of a dynamic movement based. I think they actually have one where there’s some deadlifts in there, that type of thing where a little, I don’t remember what it is, but it’s a little bit more realistic rather than what it was. And I mean they’re getting there, but it’s like even with that, to me, you change your whole thing. They don’t want to say it’s CrossFit. They don’t want to say that this is the type of stuff that we’re doing. They’re trying to, they’re pretending so they dance around it and it’s just dumb that they’d have to do that.

Sevan Matossian (12:22):

I don’t know who this is. Dale Dobe said it best. It’s all about who. Okay, Dale, I agree. Dale.

Brian Spin (12:28):

Yeah. I think the best way to get into the military is to work at the grassroots. So work with the lower level military. Eventually they will be higher ups, right? So trying to convince

Sevan Matossian (12:43):

Long game, long game and

Bill Grundler (12:44):

That’s what, it’s very long game,


Which isn’t bad. But again, the bigger the the machine, the more cogs there are in the machine to deal with. So we’re stoked because CrossFit’s working with the army, but it’s like Dave said, they aren’t working with the army. They’re working with one cohort in the Army, one battalion. And that to me that’s shitty that they bought off on it. Cool. But they haven’t spread it through. And I did the same type of thing. I was like, okay, well I’ll have all my guys doing CrossFit when I was there 10 years ago now. And those guys are now captains and chiefs and they do it, but even it gets stuck at their station, it doesn’t go up higher than that and

Sevan Matossian (13:36):

And when the dude quits, the new dude’s not. That’s it. Continue. Yep, that’s it. You’re

Bill Grundler (13:41):

Done. That’s it.

Dave Castro (13:43):

I also ask what is a private seminar? Actually a handful of people ask what is a private seminar? And last week we were in San Diego on a Navy base doing a private seminar for naval special warfare personnel. There were some seals there and non seals. And what it is is units reach out to us and say, Hey, we want to host a private level one for our crew. We do a number of private level ones. We did one for the Army. We recently unrelated to the 18th Airborne Corps. We’ve a handful in 2023 for different units. We do ’em internationally too. We used to do a ton of ’em. We haven’t over the last several years done as many. But it’s basically reaching out and this is unrelated to the one day stuff we’re doing with 18th Airborn Corps. You basically reach out and say we’d like to host a level one course on our base and then we send trainers out to you and conduct it while there. So I was in San Diego for a couple days, went to the course because of my background.

Sevan Matossian (14:30):

So that’s what he was doing last week. Saw

Dave Castro (14:31):

Some old teammates and friends

Sevan Matossian (14:34):

Last week. They taught a level one in Coronado it sounds like at Buds. Yeah.

Bill Grundler (14:41):

Which is cool.

Sevan Matossian (14:42):


Bill Grundler (14:42):


Sevan Matossian (14:42):

Totally cool. So that means they do have some inroads into the Navy.

Bill Grundler (14:46):

Well he said that they will have if a group wants them to come in and do, and that’s what he was talking about, the private level one. It’s like, okay, if your group wants us to come in, we’ll come in and do it. I didn’t know that they did a lot of ’em before. I mean he said they used to do a lot of

Sevan Matossian (15:01):

’em. Dude, back in the day I felt like Greg was always doing those flying somewhere and doing them. Oh yeah, a long time ago.

Dave Castro (15:13):

They have a lot of new buildings and a lot of new fundamentally base for the teams out there. So that was a really good trip. I’m actually heading back tomorrow to do some training with some guys unrelated to this more just personal stuff and some of my shooting things that I like to do and related, well not related, but also of similar nature. So yesterday I found out that someone hit me up and said, Hey, check the story out. And it was a story saying a couple sailors were missing off the coast of Somalia and then find out today. Now it’s hitting more mainstream press. It’s not just a couple sailors, it’s a couple of seals and it sounds like they were on a mission and something happened and they fell off the ship. They’re in the water missing and haven’t been found for a few days. So it sounds like we lost a couple guys tragic day. You hate hearing that shit. Just it hits close to home, especially with what I did for so long as a C for 12 years. Obviously I don’t talk a lot about that.

Sevan Matossian (16:10):

Yeah, that was crazy that he just said that. You don’t hear him say that very often. Yeah,

Dave Castro (16:17):

But when you see stuff like this, it makes you think about your time in it makes me think about my time in, and I’ve done training like that. I never did any real world missions, any real world ship boarding missions, but did a lot of training. Actually broke my leg doing that training at one point. And it just makes you think about even the combat that I did eventually see and the things I did, how lucky I am to even still be here after all that time. I think I’ve said this before, Glassman saved my life and what I mean when I say that is he gave me the opportunity to do something significant and profound in the world with CrossFit and step away from the thing I love doing, which was the military and being a seal. So 12 year mark, I was able to completely get out and work full-time for CrossFit.


If it wasn’t for CrossFit, I would’ve done 20 years. And in that, that’s eight more years of doing the things we did. And why I say he saved my life is who knows what would’ve happened in those eight years through that time period. I saw a lot of other guys that I know not make it back from combat. So when things like this just happen or happen, it just makes you think about all of that stuff and how dangerous that job is. Obviously it goes without saying how dangerous any military service is and it makes think about, makes me proud of what I did and also think how proud I am of those who are still serving our country and still doing those tough jobs or frankly, any job in the military. So keep a sad day. I’ll be with a bunch of seals for the next couple days, so I’ll find out more about it, won’t talk about it more than this and I know that it’s going to be annoying. There’s going to be a bunch of fucking people talking about a bunch of guys. I hope people don’t publicly, at least on the Instagram sphere, talk about the tactics or talk about the missions or what they will or try to break it down. I think, and this is why I don’t talk about this stuff. I think that stuff, there’s a realm and a place for it and it’s not in the public domain, this special operation side of it, the tactics, the missions, the details, how you do it and all of that at Cedric.

Sevan Matossian (18:15):

Okay, so he’s going back down to San Diego. He is in San Diego it sounds like now. That’s why he released this yesterday. He was down last week for some seal shit, but now he’s going back down again to do some other seal shit that has to do with his shooting. And I would say for Dave, he’s shaken. We just saw shaking Dave Bumed some homies.

Bill Grundler (18:37):

I don’t think that anybody likes to hear that stuff. I mean what’s weird is from, I mean, not that I was running around with guns or anything, but even with my experience in fire, you’re doing your thing and you’re just kind of in it. And even with him being in the military, you’re just in it and you don’t think about all of the things that could happen until you’re out, until one of these things comes to hitch in the gut a little bit where you’re like, oh. So I really liked his comment about how he says that Greg saved his life because otherwise he would’ve been in for another eight years. And he’s exactly right. Anything can happen in those eight years. It could be an accident, it could be a mission, it could be a whatever. And that could have been it. And that’s the way that these guys and girls when they’re in the military, that’s the role that they play. I mean, you don’t know. You might not be coming back that day. That’s just kind of how it runs. Officers fire, same thing. Go ahead. Spin

Brian Spin (19:37):

Bill. When something like that happens, and it’s similar to something that maybe was a close call for you, but you came out on the good side, but these two didn’t lost their life, does it remind you how close you could have been to not where you are now?

Bill Grundler (19:57):

Yeah. You can’t do the job if you’re worried about all the worst things happening, so you kind of block it out. But when it’s these types of things that happen that you’re literally on the line. So are you just barely on this side of the line or are you barely on that side of the line? On that side of the line. You’re not coming home. Were nine 11 Bill. What’s that?

Sevan Matossian (20:15):

Were you a firefighter? Nine 11?

Bill Grundler (20:16):


Sevan Matossian (20:17):

Wow. So that fucking rocked you.

Bill Grundler (20:20):

Totally. That’s what everybody, anything big that that’s what people think about. It’s like, okay, well what I have done, how would it have been? That’s the whole deal you watch regardless of what are the political part of that. That whole thing is you watch the video footage of those guys having to go up into the towers. They’re just doing what they do. And that’s the same thing that these guys do. They do what they do and the hope is you come back and sometimes you do and sometimes you don’t. And when you don’t, you come back, you’re like, fuck. I was walking that edge. I didn’t even really think about it because you get so used to not thinking about it because you can’t can’t.

Sevan Matossian (21:05):

He said, I have actually seen some footage of Dave doing some boat training and basically, and I know what he’s talking about, he’s talking about basically it sounds like these seals who died were basically pulling up in a boat next to another big boat. Think oil tanker. That’s how I’m imagining. And they were going to board the boat for some mission, kill somebody, take the boat. They were doing something. And although Dave says here, he had never done that. Don’t anyone get it twisted. The guy went on shit. Tons of missions. I remember when he worked at CrossFit every night when I’d be chatting with him and we’d be doing work stuff, he’d be like, okay, I’m going on a job. I’m going on a job. He never told me what they were or anything. But then as the years went by that I knew Dave. I met other Seals and Delta force guys that were deployed with them. And even as recent as this last games I was at, there was a Delta force guy there who’s still in, and he whispered in my ear, I can’t even tell you exactly what he whispered in my ear, but Dave was a busy man. He did a shitload of nightly stuff for sounds like on and off for years. Like 60 days in a row of nightly activities going out in helicopters and dropping into people’s villages. So

Bill Grundler (22:14):

What’s crazy is everyone, he

Sevan Matossian (22:15):

Crazy shit, I think. And that’s the most I’ve disturbed I’ve ever seen him, by the way. He looks really moved right there

Bill Grundler (22:21):

For me. I agree. I agree too. What’s crazy is that he always gets labeled. He’s like, oh, he’s such a douche bag, he’s a this, he’s a that. And it’s like, dude, you have to understand what the dude has been through. Right? Right. It’s kind of like with cops, why are all cops assholes? Well, I mean in all reality, they kind have to be

Sevan Matossian (22:39):

90% of the interactions in the morning before they saw you at the fucking dentist office are with scumbags.

Bill Grundler (22:44):


Sevan Matossian (22:44):

Totally. With a fucking box cutter in their pocket getting ready to slit their throat or some drunk lady.

Bill Grundler (22:49):

Yeah. Yeah, that’s true.

Sevan Matossian (22:51):

They get trained to deal with the people that they hang out with. Get

Dave Castro (22:54):

Dave thoughts on bringing back team series. Absolutely. We’re definitely thinking about bringing back to team series. It was a great event. Maybe not even the same way, but conceptually, online team competition in the off season. I’d love to do something like that. It was fun. It was cool. People enjoyed it. It was growing before we stopped doing it. And so definitely considering

Sevan Matossian (23:17):

Nick, I don’t even remember what the team series was. What was that?

Bill Grundler (23:20):

Is he talking like the invitational?

Brian Spin (23:22):

No, it was like around September timeframe. October where they had teams of four, two men, two women.

Bill Grundler (23:31):


Sevan Matossian (23:32):

Was there a location that we did it? I barely

Bill Grundler (23:34):

Remember that. That was the online thing it

Brian Spin (23:36):

It was online. Rogue Fitness sponsored a couple teams.

Sevan Matossian (23:40):

Oh yeah.

Brian Spin (23:41):

Over one or two weekends you have to go and do a handful of workouts.

Sevan Matossian (23:45):

There’s no live final event.

Bill Grundler (23:47):

No, it’s like an online version of guap of the teams.

Brian Spin (23:54):

I don’t think it was, at least from what I saw, it wasn’t as popular as what Dave was saying.

Bill Grundler (24:01):

Same. I mean unless he was talking invitational, which I think the Invitational team series would be awesome and have that competition. Oh, I also think that one of the things I didn’t think I mentioned about the team thing that we were talking about, me and Chase was Oh, what’s up Joe? What’s up? Man was having the top three teams at the games that were on the podium that they get to compete at the Team Invitational. So you have your North American team, your Canadian team, your whatever team, and then you have those, the three podium teams. Then they get to compete against ’em. That’d be badass.

Sevan Matossian (24:36):

That would be badass,

Bill Grundler (24:37):


Sevan Matossian (24:38):

Podium team. Yeah, it would

Brian Spin (24:39):

Just embarrass the teams,

Sevan Matossian (24:41):

The podium teams.

Bill Grundler (24:42):


Brian Spin (24:43):


Bill Grundler (24:44):

But it’d still be fun.

Sevan Matossian (24:48):

Alright, here we go.

Dave Castro (24:50):

Alt Gilbert 6 1 2. Okay folks, I’m here to reignite the idea of Castro versus Bridges boxing match. We all know Josh Bridges was dodging the fight. What do you think, Dave? Could you still beat him? So I’ve definitely aged significantly since then. I feel like I’m slowing down. Do I think I can beat Josh? Technically? For sure. Physically at this point he’s way stronger. He’s got way more endurance. He’s way fitter than I am, so it would be tough. I mean, he’s like over a decade, maybe even 15 years younger than I am. So that imbalance would put me at a disadvantage. Although Jacob Hepner, who could barely string together a one two punch or any sort of combinations was able to beat Josh Bridges. So that gives me some hope. But no, I’m not going to step into a ring with him. I’m too old for that shit at Thomas stuck stop.

Bill Grundler (25:39):

It’d be so fun to watch that.

Sevan Matossian (25:43):

How about just get them drunk and see what happens.

Bill Grundler (25:48):

Do you think they’d fight if they were drunk?

Sevan Matossian (25:49):

I don’t know. But how about just get a bunch of these dudes together and get ’em drinking and if a fight breaks out, we win. If not, and we just charge money. But you’re not even sure if a fight’s going to break out,

Bill Grundler (25:58):

So part of the bet is just if they fight.

Sevan Matossian (26:01):

Sure. Yeah. Julia, how the fuck old is Dave? I’m 51. He’s younger than me, but not much younger.

Brian Spin (26:10):

Yeah, I think he’s mid forties. Yeah, and Bridges is,

Sevan Matossian (26:14):

I think

Bill Grundler (26:15):

He just turned 40, didn’t he?

Sevan Matossian (26:17):

Bridges? What year did Dave cornrows hair? Because he said he’ll never do that when he is 40. So he must’ve been 39 or he turned 40 or something that year.

Bill Grundler (26:28):

Was that 15, 16,

Sevan Matossian (26:33):

Somewhere around there. Dave was born in

Brian Spin (26:35):

Seventy seven, forty six.

Sevan Matossian (26:43):

Look at this person. What’s his social security number? All right, here

Bill Grundler (26:54):

We go. Am I frozen again? Am

Sevan Matossian (26:55):

I Yeah. Yeah, you’ve been frozen. I didn’t want to tell you what the fuck.

Bill Grundler (26:58):

Tell me. I’ll leave it. Come right back.

Sevan Matossian (27:00):

Okay, fine. Go ahead. Go ahead. We’ll wait for you. Go ahead. We won’t do anything. Rosie. Rosie or Rosie? John Young. Hello. Cornrows 2015. Dude, you guys don’t tell fucking Bill. He’s frozen. Okay. Do not listen. Christopher, do not tell. Oh, is Christopher in the military? Listen, do not tell Bill he’s frozen. We don’t need him coming and going. Just let him be frozen. Hi Bill. Fuck

Bill Grundler (27:30):

Up. I heard that bitch. Thanks Chris.

Sevan Matossian (27:35):

No, Chris bad. Chris. Okay, here we go.

Dave Castro (27:38):

9, 3, 4 8. Will you do a live announcement for the open? They’re awesome. I’ve said this in other locations or maybe not. This definitely considering likely haven’t committed yet, but very likely. And thank you.

Sevan Matossian (27:50):

He needs to do all the open announcements his first year back. Quit being fucking fake, humble, fake, whatever. Just do them all. Just Just do them all. Come on.

Brian Spin (28:02):

It’s only three weeks.

Sevan Matossian (28:03):

Yeah, just do it, dude. Just do it for us. I don’t want to see anyone else do it. Bill disagrees. What do you think, bill? Oh, let’s have someone from the adaptive division and the ages. Division champion. I’m Bill and I’m inclusive

Bill Grundler (28:15):

First of all. Okay. Why would you use that voice? Let me, second of all, when have I ever, sorry. Do I have a God voice? When have I ever jumped on that side of the fence? No, all Dave shouldn’t be anybody else. I read you at all.

Sevan Matossian (28:28):

Okay. Okay. Lemme see if I, yeah, cool. If I knew how to use this road caster, I could have done a God voice.

Bill Grundler (28:40):

What was your favorite antic that he did at the Open?

Sevan Matossian (28:44):

I like all of them. I just like watching him. I like people making fun of him and thinking like he gives a fuck. They’re like, this is so stupid. He’s so dramatic. His writing sucks. That’s the part I like. I just like all the people just tearing into him.

Bill Grundler (28:57):

What about you Brian?

Brian Spin (28:59):

My favorite was just the whiteboard and how he would write it in a different order than you expected

Speaker 5 (29:04):


Bill Grundler (29:05):

Just kept you hanging with the movement first.

Brian Spin (29:06):

But I agree with Sivan. If we’re talking about it, it’s a good thing.

Speaker 5 (29:12):


Brian Spin (29:13):

If we only talk about it for an hour on the announcement show, that’s not enough. We want that continuing on and the buildup to it of what he’s going to do.

Sevan Matossian (29:22):

What was he thinking? What’s his hair doing? What the fuck is that suit? Who made that for him? Christ. He

Bill Grundler (29:26):

Practiced all of that shit too. Oh yeah. We’d be there getting ready for the broadcast and he’d be going all the hand when he did. The time isn’t going to save you. And he’d take his watch off and he’d throw his watch. He would do that time after time after time. And he

Sevan Matossian (29:40):

20 watches. He even had to pick which watch to use. Yes,

Bill Grundler (29:44):

Totally. His fingers and movement. All that’s so funny. It was awesome.

Sevan Matossian (29:49):

Dan Guerrero Savon Getting checked by Jack Seon.

Bill Grundler (29:55):

It should be the Frozen Seon is what it should be.

Sevan Matossian (29:58):

Frozen Stevon was fucking.
