The Official CrossFit Games Update Show | Young, Pedro & Self – The $ale has been MADE

Sevan Matossian (00:01):

Bam. We’re Live England. That’s the big island next to your island.

@coffeepodsnwods (00:06):

That’s the one that used to own us. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (00:08):

Oh shit. Hey, do they own any part of you anymore?

@coffeepodsnwods (00:13):

It depends who you ask. They’re heavily involved in the north. Yeah. You

Sevan Matossian (00:17):

Guys will have, do you guys think you’ll have some sort of Palestinian Israeli thing go down or those days are way over?

@coffeepodsnwods (00:24):

No, we had that for a long time.

Sevan Matossian (00:27):

I remember that when I was a kid.

@coffeepodsnwods (00:30):

Crazy shit.

Sevan Matossian (00:31):

Yeah, that was weird to see that.

@coffeepodsnwods (00:34):

It was weird being here. It’s weird when people talk about it. I was just so desensitized. I know I was a child, but I was so oblivious to it. Even though it was on the news and stuff. You’re just oblivious

Sevan Matossian (00:45):

From the United States. It looked like it was just basically gang wars. Like turf wars.

@coffeepodsnwods (00:50):

Yeah. A lot of terrorism.

Sevan Matossian (00:54):

Yeah, like I said, gang wars, Crips and Bloods,

@coffeepodsnwods (00:58):

But Catholics and Prods.

Sevan Matossian (01:00):

Oh, oh yeah. That’s right. That’s right, that’s right. Welcome to the official CrossFit games update show. You’re staring at Pedro. He’s in the UK getting ready to cover.

@coffeepodsnwods (01:14):

Wrap it out.

Sevan Matossian (01:16):

Wrap it out. That’s what it’s called. Wrap it out.

@coffeepodsnwods (01:18):


Sevan Matossian (01:18):

Wrap it out, rep it out. Wrap it out. And that’s an event in the uk. Did they invite you there or are you crashing it?

@coffeepodsnwods (01:26):

No, Richard Hornsey that owns it. He wanted me involved and I was proud to be asked. So here.

Sevan Matossian (01:32):

Yeah. Hell yeah. Anyone I know going to be there competing?

@coffeepodsnwods (01:37):

No, I’d say it’s more of a community vibe than a elite vibe from, I think actually Carl Dev. You know Carl Devon is the country

Sevan Matossian (01:45):

Manager. Yeah. Hell yeah.

@coffeepodsnwods (01:47):

I think he might be pairing up with Richard Hornsey and they might be doing it together. And then I think a lot of it is affiliate people, not no big, huge European names or anything.

Sevan Matossian (02:00):

What about the guy, Ollie? Is that guy still around?

@coffeepodsnwods (02:04):

Yeah, I think he’s in charge of Europe and Carl is the UK and then Daniel is international. They all moved up one. Daniel used to be Europe and Ollie used to be the uk and then Daniel moved up and Ollie moved up and Carl stepped in.

Sevan Matossian (02:20):

Oh shit. Okay. Wow. Ollie’s balling.

@coffeepodsnwods (02:24):

Good guy.

Sevan Matossian (02:28):

Lucky camera straps. Damn. Always. Always with the late night money. Great episode this week guys. Greg was awesome. And Pedro with Rob Forte was great too. You had Rob Forte on your show.

@coffeepodsnwods (02:36):


Sevan Matossian (02:37):

How was that?

@coffeepodsnwods (02:39):

Cool. Yeah, it was cool. It’s always weird talking to someone when it’s their morning and my nighttime. He’s a cool guy.

Sevan Matossian (02:44):

What’s the big takeaway? What’d you guys talk about? Was it talking about him or Jay Crouch or CrossFit in Australia or what’s the

@coffeepodsnwods (02:51):

Down under Championships is on, he’s running that. We were talking about that a good bit and there’s a lot of elites going over and then we were talking about Jay. It’s cool. I met him at Madison. I was kind surprised to see him at Madison. You know, just assume there’s bad blood when someone leaves someone else. And I was like, oh shit, what are you doing here? When he was there and he was like, oh, I’m here with Jay. And

Sevan Matossian (03:16):

Because Jay went to proven

@coffeepodsnwods (03:19):

With Tia and Shane, and then he was saying on the show that that was his idea, that he suggested it and he pushed, he actually, he wouldn’t say at the other camp, but he was like, I approached the camp and they were a bit more, oh, we’ll see. And yeah, we might be able to accommodate him and et cetera. And then he approached Proven and proven were like, yeah, we’ll have him. Wow. Yeah, so he wouldn’t say who the other camp was, but my guess is H should be po.

Sevan Matossian (03:42):

That’s what I was going to guess too. Why would you guess them? Just, they seem like they’re a little more,

@coffeepodsnwods (03:48):

I feel like that’s who he would’ve gone to because he went to TA because he went to Proven because of ta. He said basically more or less, and then who’s the alternative to tia? It’s either going to be Rich or Matt, and I feel like Matt is a more obvious choice for Jay, but yeah, I dunno. Geez. Jay has made some serious fucking improvements.

Sevan Matossian (04:09):

I think of it too. Also when I think of HWPO, I think of them as being very selective and very limited occupancy and room. I dunno why I think that and then I think of Mayhem as just like Rich standing at the door, just waving him in. Like, come on, come on. Yeah.

@coffeepodsnwods (04:26):

Rich and Fon, come on.

Sevan Matossian (04:27):

Yeah. Yeah. Rich is like if you just mentioned to Rich like, hey, it’d be cool to come out to like, come on, come on.

@coffeepodsnwods (04:33):

Sansio mayhem, t-shirt,

Sevan Matossian (04:36):

And then proven. We know, it just seems like they would have some room with the departure of some of their mega stars. Can Pedro speak up a bit?

@coffeepodsnwods (04:47):

Oh shit, sorry.

Sevan Matossian (04:48):

He doesn’t want the people in room 41 to hear him.

@coffeepodsnwods (04:51):

Hang on. Is that better?

Sevan Matossian (04:53):

Yeah. Oh, nice. That was very nice. Hey Pedro, who just spent 6.5 million on a new headquarters,

@coffeepodsnwods (05:04):


Sevan Matossian (05:05):

Fuck, you know everything.

@coffeepodsnwods (05:09):

It’s just deduction.

Sevan Matossian (05:13):

Barry Hills, a Barry Hill commercial building, previously accommodating eighth and Berry Wine and Spirits has sold for 6.5 million with one of the buyers. With one, the buyers being six times CrossFit games champion a world-class weightlifter to Tomi. The store. The building sits on 1.02 acres. Sorry, I can’t switch that to metric.

@coffeepodsnwods (05:38):

No, we use acres.

Sevan Matossian (05:40):

Oh, you do? Okay. I thought you guys used hectares.

@coffeepodsnwods (05:46):

No, it’s also mentioned, but no.

Sevan Matossian (05:49):

Okay. Acres. What size, how many acres is your parcel of land that you live On?

@coffeepodsnwods (05:56):

My house, it’s like whatever. A really small garden is like 0.00. My dad owns about 200 acres.

Sevan Matossian (06:03):

Oh no shit. Yeah. What’s on there? What’s on the land?

@coffeepodsnwods (06:07):

Grass and cows and shit and shit. Like actual shit.

Sevan Matossian (06:11):

My dad owns 201 acres.

@coffeepodsnwods (06:14):

Oh yeah. My dad’s got a seven and a half inch penis.

Sevan Matossian (06:19):

Hey, does your dad own a tractor?

@coffeepodsnwods (06:21):

Yeah, a few. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (06:23):

Damn. According to Davidson County Register of deeds, Pedro, the new owner is an LLC affiliated with Tia, Claire Tomi and her husband. So that makes me think that it was them who bought it that there aren’t other people. John, nice to see you. John Young of JY, barbell Senior now analyst for the seven podcast.

John Young (06:50):

Nice to be here

Sevan Matossian (06:52):

And also currently has a black eye, but more importantly at the Charlotte Classic, the gentleman sitting in fifth place is one of John’s students. I want to apologize in advance, John, for Pedro’s low energy.

@coffeepodsnwods (07:09):

I’ve been fucking carrying the show for the last five minutes.

Sevan Matossian (07:11):

That is true. The show’s been shit, but he has been carrying it all that exclusive.

John Young (07:16):

I drove like 80 miles an hour to get here at 6 0 5 instead of six 12. I felt really bad.

Sevan Matossian (07:23):

Good. I

@coffeepodsnwods (07:23):

Was. Did Brian Frank give you that black eye for doing the power rankings?

John Young (07:28):

He did. He was funny. We were going to do that. We were going to do that before, regardless of his show. Before we had that in mind before two weeks ago. But we just had the rule book came out, or not the rule book, but all the changes came out. So that show came up first and then he said, Hey, do you want to do this 200 thing with me? I’m like, absolutely, man, let’s do it. And didn’t think anything of it. And then it came out the day after the mountain came out, the day after, and it was kind of funny.

Sevan Matossian (08:03):

The mountain’s also a ranking.

John Young (08:06):

That’s what’s going to happen, man.

Sevan Matossian (08:08):

It’s a ranking system. Tell me about the mountain. That’s the first I’ve seen some snippets of the mountain. What is the mountain?

John Young (08:15):

It’s the 2024 CrossFit Games mountain. That’s what’s going to happen in the 2024 CrossFit games. It’s men and women.

@coffeepodsnwods (08:24):

That’s why I really like it.

Sevan Matossian (08:26):

Is it a work in progress, like it’ll move around and shit? Absolutely.

John Young (08:30):

You’re able to climb the mountain or fall off the mountain. Like Mam O’Brien and Haley Adams, they’re at base camp. They fell off the mountain. They used to be really close to the top and they’ve fallen off. Had a incident.

Sevan Matossian (08:42):

Hold that. Hold that thought. We’ll get back to the mountain in one second and to talk about Haley Adams and Ma O’Brien. They’re definitely topics of conversation for today. She’s a native of Australia who’s loosely referred to as the fittest woman on Earth. Give me a fucking break. The now 30 year old really say loosely in the 2016 Summer Olympics in the 58 kilogram, 128 pound weightlifting competition. Finishing 14th in the world. The couple lives in East Nashville. They created the fitness program proven that trains CrossFit athletes. There was something in here that they called her the fittest. Where is that? There’s one thing in here that was bizarre. Anyway, the 21,168 square foot Beverly Berry Hill commercial building, which seemingly offers no tenant was constructed in 1953 and given an upgrade this year. So they were asking 7.75 million for it and they got it for 6.5, but just three years ago it was half that price at 3.3 million. You want to see what it looks like inside side? It’s baller. It’s baller. They’re stoked. Have you seen it yet?

@coffeepodsnwods (10:04):

I’ve seen pictures from Nick story and stuff, but not, no.

Sevan Matossian (10:08):

Yeah, that’s all I got.

@coffeepodsnwods (10:11):

Beautiful. Right?

Sevan Matossian (10:14):


@coffeepodsnwods (10:15):

It’s such shiny concrete.

Sevan Matossian (10:17):

Yeah, polished concrete. Hey, so they’re there to stay. Remember that tour that we got and then Andrew Hiller covered the cost of all this stuff in their gym. Where is that gym?

@coffeepodsnwods (10:31):

That’s Australia.

Sevan Matossian (10:33):

I wonder what they do with that. That just sits there.

@coffeepodsnwods (10:35):

I think so. Yeah. I think it’s near her parents’ place.

Sevan Matossian (10:39):

Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy. Hello?

Taylor Self (10:43):

What’s up? What is up? Pedro?

Sevan Matossian (10:48):

Ringing the love

Taylor Self (10:50):

Up, guys.

Sevan Matossian (10:52):

Do you guys know why there’s no trolls on this podcast?

@coffeepodsnwods (10:56):

We don’t go live to define

Sevan Matossian (10:57):

Troll. Good point. This podcast has its own culture. It has its own values, it has its own depth. It has its own. There’s no cancer in the comments. Feng shui. Yeah, no. I dunno. If fang feng shui is the right word, what does that even mean? What is shui?

@coffeepodsnwods (11:21):

It’s moving your fucking couch so that you don’t get bad luck. Why

Taylor Self (11:26):

Is it a furniture thing? I just don’t

Sevan Matossian (11:28):


@coffeepodsnwods (11:29):

That. Chinese love a room layout. Your

Sevan Matossian (11:31):

Body can have feng shui.

@coffeepodsnwods (11:34):

What if you move your penis to the back

Sevan Matossian (11:38):

If you have a front tail or back tail? Listen to this. Speaking of, sorry. Hi mom. I’m live on the air.

Speaker 6 (11:48):


Sevan Matossian (11:48):

Sorry. Okay. What’d you want to talk about? Anything? What time

Speaker 6 (11:51):

Were you leaving tomorrow

Sevan Matossian (11:52):

Morning? 6:00 AM Oh,

@coffeepodsnwods (11:55):

She sounds so sweet.

Sevan Matossian (11:56):

I’ll pick you up at your house at six. Okay? Okay, love you. Bye bye. We’re going to Matt SU’s 10 year anniversary tomorrow, two hours away partner’s workout. My mom thinks I’m taking her because I love her, but I’m taking her so I can sandbag the workout that dirty or what?

@coffeepodsnwods (12:16):

That’s what I do.

Sevan Matossian (12:18):

Okay, here we go. Listen, listen, listen. Can you hear it, Taylor?

Taylor Self (12:21):

Yeah, I can hear, dude. Oh, is it Colton?

Sevan Matossian (12:24):

Alright, here we go.

Speaker 8 (12:25):

Big farmer from Iowa. I’ve been lifting all my life doing man work. These boys don’t know nothing about that

Sevan Matossian (12:36):

Good shit. Right?

Taylor Self (12:38):

They don’t know nothing about that. Although I’m not one of those boys. He knows better to say some shit like that to me. But yeah, I agree. He’s a savage.

Sevan Matossian (12:50):

Okay, I do want to talk about Mal O’Brien. Let’s start with John Young. I cruised over to her Instagram account today and I was like, what do we know? Is this girl coming back?

Taylor Self (13:07):

No. We don’t know dude. No idea. We don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (13:13):

So there’s some post here that says MOB. I don’t know what that is. That’s maybe some young people stuff. Mallory O’Brien. Oh, then there’s something that’s like a, there’s AOC and MOB.

@coffeepodsnwods (13:28):

Yeah. LOL. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (13:30):

LOL. So let’s look at this right here. Let’s look at this. So this is a Nobel commercial. She’s probably doing just her final obligations before those fuckers circle the bowl and go under, right?

@coffeepodsnwods (13:48):

It always annoys me when a brand gets all their athletes to pull the same fucking thing on the same day at the same time.

Taylor Self (13:55):

Where is that?

Sevan Matossian (13:56):

I don’t know, but

Taylor Self (13:59):

Vermont. Oh, she’s still in Vermont.

Sevan Matossian (14:02):

She looks happy as shit. That is Vermont.

@coffeepodsnwods (14:05):

Yeah. Isn’t it? Isn’t that the gym that they did the open workouts at the last slide? You’re on there with the Irish flag, I think.

Taylor Self (14:15):

No, I think that’s the HWPO headquarters.

@coffeepodsnwods (14:19):

No, it’s all black, isn’t it?

Sevan Matossian (14:20):

H quarters. H quarters. This is her boyfriend, right? I

@coffeepodsnwods (14:27):

Think so, yes.

Taylor Self (14:28):

No, her girlfriend

Sevan Matossian (14:30):

Slide seven. So what is going on Ma O’Brien? Why do you have her falling off the mountain? John? She gone.

Taylor Self (14:38):

No, she’s on base camp.

@coffeepodsnwods (14:40):

I actually think that that MOB one is actually maybe the clearest indicator that she might be coming back.

Sevan Matossian (14:46):

And why do you say that?

@coffeepodsnwods (14:47):

Because more to come and then it’s, it’s about, it just seems more like, Hey, I’m coming back. I’m ready. And Eric Kaus, I dunno if he still is, but he was the HBPO head media honcho fella.

John Young (15:02):

For instance, when mLab Bryan was second at the CrossFit games, then she would’ve been close to the top of the mountain. But then she didn’t do the CrossFit games for a year, so she can’t be on it. She’s not competing, but she has the ability to displace anybody on the mountain. So that’s why she’s at base camp.

Sevan Matossian (15:25):

She does have the ability to displace anyone. Do you agree with that, Taylor?

Taylor Self (15:29):


Sevan Matossian (15:30):


Taylor Self (15:32):

How does she have the ability to displace everyone? She’s not competing. You have no idea what she’s capable

John Young (15:37):

Of. If she’s competing, then she does, but she’s okay.

Taylor Self (15:41):

But what if she decides on day one to quit?

John Young (15:44):

Then she’s off of base camp. That’s why she’s at base camps talking about,

Taylor Self (15:48):

She’s still in the fucking gondola. She’s not even in base camp, bro. Wow. She cut out

John Young (15:55):

The mountain is people who are competing and then people who could make noise. If they are competing or it’s their number one priority, then they’re the people at base camp. It’s

Taylor Self (16:05):

Not her number one priority, bro. She’s got to be a fucking kid and I think that’s the right move for her. But I’m just saying, why are we talking about her? We don’t know if she’s competing. We should be talking about my competition that happened today. I have two things that I want to talk about when we get a chance.

John Young (16:19):

I agree with

Sevan Matossian (16:20):

You. Lemme lemme say a couple things. The reason why we’re talking about her is because she is the greatest threat to the podium outside of Laura and Tia. That’s what we’re talking about.

Taylor Self (16:30):

She is. If

John Young (16:32):

The mal of Brian, of old,

Taylor Self (16:34):

If I think you have to emphasize the if

John Young (16:36):

I don’t think we’re going to get that either.

Sevan Matossian (16:39):

Oh dude. She doesn’t know any other way.

Taylor Self (16:42):

Emma Lawson. You don’t think Emma Lawson?

Sevan Matossian (16:45):

I think she’s a threat. I think she’s great.

Taylor Self (16:47):

Dude. Emma Lawson’s there. She’s put together the physical will come, especially for Emma. She is gifted. Dude.

Sevan Matossian (16:55):

Oh man. How quickly you forgot about how great fucking Mala Bryan

Taylor Self (16:58):

Is. No, she is great. And I was under the impression from everything I saw that she was a mental savage until she stopped competing because emotionally it was too much. And that’s what we’re assuming. We assuming she got burnt out.

John Young (17:14):

If she comes back and competes, I don’t know if you get the same Ma O’Brien that there was before. Correct. And that, and if it’s not the same Ma O’Brien, then I don’t know what to think of her. She’s on the mountain, but she’s not displacing people like Laura or Emma Lawson.

Taylor Self (17:31):

The difference between Matt and Pat and Brent and Noah, to me, it’s not the physical aspect why Matt won five years. It’s because Matt sees a workout and if he thinks it’s dumb, he’s like, I’m going to fucking destroy this workout because your fucking dumbass wrote it like that. And fuck you. Pat’s going to complain about it. Brent’s going to write something up and put it in the PFAA. Noah’s going to tell a joke in the warmup area. I mean, not dead serious. I have a lot of respect for Matt because I think he’s the toughest, mentally the toughest athlete to ever compete.

Sevan Matossian (18:10):

Hey, let me say this up there. Have you seen Tia’s latest video?

Taylor Self (18:13):

She’s a savage too. I’m talking about the men’s side.

Sevan Matossian (18:15):

Yeah, but she’s, that’s all shit that basically in her most recent video, she basically puts everyone on notice. My fucking mental game is unparalleled. Yeah.

Taylor Self (18:25):

If I’m stepping, yeah, a hundred percent. You step on a floor,

Sevan Matossian (18:28):

It’s Facebook. Fuck you. I don’t care if I lose. I’m afraid of not. The only thing I’m afraid of is not putting it all on the line. I’m like, damn. It’s

Taylor Self (18:34):

Like where everything someone does to make it harder for you is another fucking gallon of gas. Then I’m like, fuck you. Because of that, I want to beat you even more. Oh. Oh, your judge didn’t no rep you because of your shitty movements and that’s in the core of my eye. Fuck you. I’m going to stomp on you because of that. I can move to standard. You can get away with shit and I can still destroy you. That’s the mindset of someone like Matt and Tia.

Sevan Matossian (18:57):

Dude, that’s good shit. Johnny just said someone writes a bad workout and 99% of the guys are complaining and Matt’s like, fuck you, watch me beat your workout up.

Taylor Self (19:05):

Yeah. Or this is stupid. I’m going to make you look stupid for writing. If beats everybody by five minutes and be like, this workout was stupid. No. Even if it’s a workout like Atlan, I’m going to walk through it at half effort and make you look like a fucking idiot, Dave. He still

Sevan Matossian (19:20):

Won though.

Taylor Self (19:21):

Exactly. And he walked through it. He’s like, I’m going to not try. I’m going to destroy everyone and I’m going to make you look like a fucking idiot.

Sevan Matossian (19:29):

Look how happy Mal. I mean, I know it’s just fucking Instagram, but look how happy she looks. This is not, when I think of Ma O’Brien, I don’t think of a happy person. I think of just a stoic, completely mind numbing, no emotion coming off of her when I see her competing at the games and then look at all these pictures.

Taylor Self (19:51):

I love the notion I going, I just love the notion that we can tell how happy she is based off the pictures she posts. Because go to before her withdrawal. Go to before her. I’m pulling out of the season post and you’re seeing that fucking smile everywhere, dude. I mean, I get it.

Sevan Matossian (20:09):

And maybe this is a little concerning. I’m going to keep a smiling.

Taylor Self (20:15):

No, I think what probably is,

Sevan Matossian (20:17):

She might be just learning Italian.

Taylor Self (20:19):

I think what’s more telltale than anything is that she has a boyfriend. I think that’s really good for her. I don’t know what that means for her competitive career, nor do I care. But I think that she should be at an age where she goes out and dates and has a boyfriend and goes to the fucking mall. She’s probably 18. She’s probably never seen the inside of a fucking mall, bro.

Sevan Matossian (20:39):

Oh, that’s not, maybe she

Taylor Self (20:40):


Sevan Matossian (20:41):

You were smiling. I don’t like,

Taylor Self (20:43):

Okay, dude, come on.

John Young (20:47):

If you have to tell people how happy you are, you’re probably not that happy.

Sevan Matossian (20:50):

Yeah, that

Taylor Self (20:51):

I don’t ever post on Instagram and it gets me. I should post a little more, but I just don’t have the time, dude, I don’t give a fuck.

Sevan Matossian (20:58):

Yeah, that part’s a little unsettling. Maybe she’s overcompensating right? With too many smiles.

Taylor Self (21:03):

Look how happy I am.

@coffeepodsnwods (21:04):

I kind of think is that she, I’m sure she was happy, but she’s never this happy before, so she doesn’t know what to do with it. So she’s just like, shit, I should tell everyone

Taylor Self (21:14):

I’m being a kid. I’ve never done this before. Look at me being a kid.

@coffeepodsnwods (21:17):

Good. This feels nuts. I want to tell everyone

Taylor Self (21:20):

About it, but that’s it. Amazing. Yeah, we got to

Sevan Matossian (21:24):

John, do you want her to come back?

Taylor Self (21:26):


Sevan Matossian (21:27):

You want her to come back, Taylor, but on

John Young (21:28):

Her own terms,

Taylor Self (21:29):

I don’t care.

Sevan Matossian (21:31):

Pedro, you want her to come back

@coffeepodsnwods (21:33):

If she’s ready. Yeah. I don’t want her to come back and quit again in six months. I want her to come back and have longevity.

Taylor Self (21:40):

Lemme rephrase that. I don’t not want her to come back, but I’m like, I want to watch the best in the sport, compete. I want her to be happy. Be happy.

Sevan Matossian (21:47):

So a little different. I want what’s best for the sport and I don’t care whether she’s happy or not happy. I want her to drag her ass out there and just put the her on. And I also think in 10 years she’ll look back and be like, boy, I should have taken that old man’s advice.

John Young (22:02):

So you would rather the Ma O’Brien that gets second place, but berries her head into the wall rather than a Ma O’Brien who’s happy and gets fifth place. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (22:15):

Yeah. You

Taylor Self (22:16):

Think, whoa, whoa. No, I think you need to rephrase that question. Sivan is happy with the Ma O’Brien who drags her head through the dirt and gets second place and has no life versus Aal O’Brien who doesn’t compete and is happy.

Sevan Matossian (22:27):

I mean, that would prefer that question. I mean, John’s question was harder to answer, but

Taylor Self (22:31):

I don’t think John’s question is as realistic. I don’t, that’s a likely scenario.

John Young (22:38):


Sevan Matossian (22:38):

Don’t think I want see her get out there, drop

John Young (22:40):

That worse than fifth or better than fifth Worse.

Sevan Matossian (22:42):

Hey dude, she scares people like Tia scares people when she’s on the field. All the other athletes are like, fuck. It’s like that dude. No one wants a piece of her. Tia don’t want a piece of her. Tia has to talk herself into wanting a piece of her. She

Taylor Self (22:58):


Sevan Matossian (22:58):

No problem, dude.

Taylor Self (23:00):

But dude, that edge. That edge.

John Young (23:02):

I get it, but I think she’ll be in the Alex Gaan, Gabby Mcow, Danielle, Brandon tier. There’s a big drop off after that tier that’s still top

Taylor Self (23:10):

10. No, here’s what I believe. I think that she lost the edge that you’re talking about as soon as she withdrew for what we see when you show a chink in your armor. That’s why Matt was so

John Young (23:22):

Good. That’s Laura and

Taylor Self (23:23):


John Young (23:26):

I think she’s below that. No, I know. Me too. I think she’s in the next tier, which is still five through 10th.

Taylor Self (23:34):

Tia is no chink in the armor. Regardless of what happened at Rogue. She came back and fought for first place six months after having a child. No change.

@coffeepodsnwods (23:42):


Taylor Self (23:43):

Months. That’s

John Young (23:44):

Not what I’m arguing. Arguing people like Paige Power. She’s going to be better than,

Taylor Self (23:48):

Right. I’m agreeing with you. I’m just saying, I don’t think she’ll come back to Avon’s point. I don’t think she’s going to be a threat to people. They’re not going to be as worked up about her. We’re like, eh, she might equate this workout.

Sevan Matossian (24:00):

Hey, look how tan John is. No,

Taylor Self (24:03):

No. What happened to your eye, dude? What’s beneath your eye?

Sevan Matossian (24:06):


John Young (24:07):


Sevan Matossian (24:08):

Oh, that’s a shitty story. You don’t even got a cool dog. Dude,

Taylor Self (24:12):

I got a couple things. All right. Whatever.

Sevan Matossian (24:15):


John Young (24:15):

A classic.

Sevan Matossian (24:17):

Let’s talk about one second. I like that chink in the armor metaphor. Here’s kind of the thing. You got someone like Alex Gaza, and we’re right before our eyes we’re watching her suit up and turn into fucking Ironman. Unfortunately, from a O’Brien, we saw her take off her suit and we’re like, Ooh, you’re not Ironman anymore. Are you going to put that shit back on? So I think

John Young (24:36):

Alex Gaza’s doing it way better than how a O’Brien was going about it.

Sevan Matossian (24:41):

No, what I’m saying is Alex Gaza is turning into a superhero before our eyes. Matt did Ma O’Brien fell. She took off her Batman suit and we’re like, oh shit. There’s a person under there. That’s what I’m saying.

Taylor Self (24:51):

And look, I think the best athletes did it the way Alex is doing it. Matt took second two years before it was like, okay, what I wasn’t good at is fixed. Now you’re never going to beat me Tia. The same way

Sevan Matossian (25:04):

To say she’s in the gondola, dude. I mean, she’s a scary, I think she’s scary. I think she brings fear to athletes. Peloton. Oh, here’s the CEO of Peloton. Good to have you, buddy. Good to have you a weenie pussy.

Taylor Self (25:18):

What happened with them and didn’t they sponsor? Nevermind, read the comment.

Sevan Matossian (25:24):

I reached out to her about four Peloton bikes signed by Dana White. She left me on red. Let me know if she’s interested. Okay, mal. Okay, I will.

Taylor Self (25:31):

That’s exactly what I was going to ask about. I didn’t even read the full comment, but what happened between them and the UFC?

Sevan Matossian (25:37):

He was on Theo Vaughn’s podcast and Dana was telling a story about how he told one of his sponsors to go fuck themselves, and I think Theo Vaughn told a story about Peloton telling him that he couldn’t do something or, oh, here we go. Okay. All right. Now is this the Peloton one or the Bud Light? This is the Bud Light one. No.

Speaker 9 (25:58):

I posted a video for Trump on my personal social media and one of our big sponsors called and said, take that down. You know what? I said, go fuck yourself. I posted a video for Trump.

Taylor Self (26:13):

Go fuck yourself. This guy, dude,

Sevan Matossian (26:18):

Peloton told Theo Vaughn something and Dana White’s like, pull up, fucking pull up. I want to see who the CEO EO of Peloton is, and he pulls up the picture of him and Dana just fucking eviscerates something. Hell

Taylor Self (26:30):


Sevan Matossian (26:31):

Dude. I mean, he looks like he lives in Boulder.

Taylor Self (26:34):

Dana is a savage

Sevan Matossian (26:38):

Speaking on that. This is off topic. I promise you we’re going to get to Charlotte Classic. I had a guy on today who was really cool affiliate owner out of San Francisco. What was the guy’s name? Rory. Rory, Irish dude. Rory. Rory Marlow. Pinkel Decker. Oh, marrow. Marlowe. Rory Marlowe. He owns a Frere CrossFit. Fear CrossFit in San Francisco, and his wife’s going to become a firefighter, and I was like, oh, she’s going to do it easy. They’re picking women now over men just because of their genitalia. He said, absolutely, that’s why she’s going to do it. I said, yeah, that’s cool, but just think about that for a second. Think have a choice. If your kid’s in a car accident somewhere, do you want a male firefighter to come get her or a female firefighter to come get her? I

John Young (27:25):

Want my wife to come get her.

Sevan Matossian (27:27):

Alright, fine, fine. If you call the cops, do you want two dudes to show up or two chicks to show up? But it gets even worse. I know what you’re going to say. Well, the women might be totally capable, but we already know they’re not because they’re already accommodating people with vaginas over penises. It should be the other way around. They should be like, Hey, you know what? It’s going to be harder for women to get in. Not easier. Not because men are, it’s just we live with fucking idiot. Just anytime you want to make one of those dumb decisions, just be like, who would you want to come get your kids? Just ask that.

Taylor Self (28:08):

I wouldn’t trust any fucking, to be honest, I wouldn’t trust a single person. I don’t have kids, but I could imagine I wouldn’t trust anyone other than myself. It’s like anyone

Sevan Matossian (28:16):

Do it yourself. I want Blade to show up.

Taylor Self (28:17):

Right? Right. That’s right. For sure. I know him. I fuck, fuck you. I want him to show

Sevan Matossian (28:21):

Up now. Listen. Now listen. I want Blade to show up, but listen, if it’s a firefighter, don’t get me wrong, I want Sam Briggs to show up before save on, but Sam earned that shit. Isn’t that like every movie day? Hold on, hold on. I got to ask a sensitive question, Caleb, did Mrs. Beaver earn it or did she go under the vagina Rule?

John Young (28:43):

She fucking earned it.

Sevan Matossian (28:44):

Alright, fine. Good. Alright. Fucking crazy. Okay, John? Yeah, your wife gets in a car accident. Car flips over and goes into a ravine. Six firefighters show up. How many of them do you want to be men?

John Young (29:01):

I would trust myself before I trust anybody

Sevan Matossian (29:04):

Else. Jesus Christ, you pussy, you bunch of pussies.

Taylor Self (29:08):

We’re not going to give you what you want. Fucker.

Sevan Matossian (29:11):

Yeah, I’ll take Sam Briggs too. Take six Sam Briggs. I

John Young (29:14):

Would rather jump into the ravine and do whatever I needed

Sevan Matossian (29:16):

To do. You don’t have that choice versus firefighters. What I’m saying is, do you want your tax dollars going to be picking people? Yeah. Thank you, Bryson. Thank you. That’s all we need to say. Come on. I know it’s a touchy subject. That’s why you, I’ve worked with some pretty awesome female firefighters. Don’t get me wrong, I not doubting that.

Taylor Self (29:35):

Generally speaking, men are stronger, women are weaker, men are bigger, are smaller in that sense, yes, men, but also generally speaking, there are some fat fucking dudes, some lazy motherfuckers, and some hardworking women. We’re

Sevan Matossian (29:50):

Conflating issues, but I agree with you. If you want to,

Taylor Self (29:53):

It’s gray. It’s gray, but generally speaking,

Sevan Matossian (29:55):

Not bigger, stronger, not gray. It’s not gray. You shouldn’t make the test easier for women.
