199- Jason's average bowling score for the year 2007

Pamela MacElree said...

No...but I see you're checking the WOD before you walk in for it ;-)

Pamela MacElree said...

Greg...Here's your lead in. The guys came in talking about American Gladiators this morning...

Sam L said...

Dr. D's weight?

Looking good Doc!

Rob said...

Will Sam be joining us tomorrow or just communicating by blog?

Another guess on the 199: the amount of hairs that Jeff scraped off Bella at this morning's session (although that was after the 199 blog was started)

I don't really like the American Gladiator nickname I got this morning. My preference for the soup should not cross over into my talents with a 6 foot padded Q-tip as I bash a human freak on a rolling foam "log"...or run through a "maze" with a hockey helmet on, hoping to not lose my teeth to yet another Amazon...I'll leave it to Greg to come up with names that are also the clever animated sound effects on the 60's version of Batman (Adam West & Burt Ward).

Greg said...

Is 199 the weight Dr. D can Snatch?

Lookin good Dr. D but put more weight on bar.

It will be hard to come up with American Gladiator names. They're as important as your real name so a lot of thought needs to go into them. One thing we should stay clear of is names like Lazer, Blazer, and any sort of -azer.

Greg out.

Rich said...

Kettle Bella: Bella's American Gladiator name!

Pamela MacElree said...

Still no on the 199.

I agree all your names should be well thought out. Not like the sparatic ones that were blurted out this morning...not good.

Missed you this morning Sam. (even had some OHS in the WOD for you)

RhinoChiroCenter said...

I know one thing> 199 is not my weight or the amount of weight on that barbell. Pam, if I knew you were snapping pictures, I would have worn make up. I say 199 is the number of Blog posts this month.

Gladiator name suggestions. I am open to amending this list:

Rich: Flash (fastest crossfitter around)

Sam: Phantom (Rarely seen, but always felt. Absente seemed too ethnic)

Big Dan: Das Freak (dude I think of Jevon Kearse everytime I see you)

Greg: G- Gone Wild (You are perpetually on spring break)

Pam: Memphis (never mess w/ a chick named after a city)

Jason: I like the Iatola of Kettlebell-ola but it is too long, so I call him "Whoo-wha" (that goofy marine corps chant

Rob: Cooper Crush Groove (has no meaning, but I am on a roll)

Erik: "Tatanka" which if you saw 'Dances w/ wolves' means "Buffalo" It is a badass Indian name.

Barry: Brian Shoop (the villan from Vision Quest)

See what happens when a morning person misses their appointment with me!

RhinoChiroCenter said...

PS> My chucks are RAD!!!!!

Rich said...

Not bad Dr D...

For you what about The Rhino? Kinda obvious but it works...

RhinoChiroCenter said...

I was always partial to "Big Daddy", and JCB claims that The Rhino was one of his former nicknames. I'll let him explain that one!

Pamela MacElree said...

Those are hilarious. How long did that take you? I'm curious about the Southern City.

You're right on the 199.

Dawn said...

I think the marine call is OORAH.

Greg said...

Dr. D, good work on the names but we can't call Rich Flash; that's already his superhero identity. He can't get the two confused when he goes out to save lives and accidentally bashes someone's head in with a giant que-tip. I also think a good name for Sam would be Shadow.

And I'm not sure what your idea of sprink break is.

Rob said...

Whoo-Hah is Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman or Elaine doing Pacino with the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld...but it still works.
Cooper Crush Groove...is that code for Numb Nuts? More like Miso Lactose Intolerant...or Miso F'ing Tired (after the WOD). Otherwise good job on the names, and those Chucks are "swass", Doc D. (80's reference anyone?)

Pamela MacElree said...

Miso you are setting yourself up for a bad nickname.

First time on the Pam WOD for this month, slightly altered, Beth 24:08

Rob said...

Couldn't be worse than the one I got from the Globo-Gym trainers when they saw me doing some o-lifting with the bands wrapped around the power rack: S#$@ for Brains...Didn't appreciate that one from "Fitness Professionals"!

Mysterious Beth had another outstanding outing with the WOM (Workout of the Month). Is she about 6'3" with short curly brown hair and a Yosemite Sam tattoo on her leg? Does she drive a white truck as well?

Dawn said...

Bear Cubs.

Kettlebell Athletics said...

My nickname is the White Rhino and I can't go there.

I think Pam should be called Stamela, as in Pamela and stamina.

RhinoChiroCenter said...

Dawn should be either: Red Dawn (the great 80's movie), or Iron City (I believe you went to Pitt right Dawn??)

Rob, I love the 80's, but I don't get the reference

Rob said...

What about Bam-Bam for Pam? It rhymes!
The White Rhino...Has to be a junk-related reference!
Swass was coined by Sir Mix-A-Lot...It means cool.
Maybe Little J for Jason!

Pamela MacElree said...

Everything I start to type leads to trouble...so just know that I want to comment, but am fearful of the remifications.

Rob said...

Don't fear the inevitable. The fatal words to start this blog were "Did anyone see American Gladiators last night?" Then Doc D took over...and then Sam slept in...again!

Pamela MacElree said...

I think scarier part of the whole thing is that there are actually four of you who think about the American Gladiators. There are probably more hiding in the woodowork too. Yikes!

Greg said...

I think Wolf is the best American Gladiator of the new show but back in the day it was definately Laser who looked a lot like Bill Romanowski.

Dawn said...

Rob said junk. :)

Rob said...

If Romanowski was on that show, all of the male contestants would be leaving with broken fingers on their way to the morgue. One sick dude! I also don't think he had time in the off season due to daily trips to the Balco Labs or whatever their satellite office was in Denver when he was with the Broncos. But I agree, that actor was a solid competitor and really knew how to wave his Q-Tip on the gym mats.

Pamela MacElree said...

Bear Cubs

junk

Nice Dawn

Dawn said...

Dr. D- Iron City is some pretty nasty beer. I'd rather be called Terrible Towel.

Greg said...

Speaking of beer...

Pamela MacElree said...

Dr. D, you could take the name Spinal. And Dawn needs something with a little more umph than Red Dawn (it sounds too calm).

Beth is not that tall nor does she sport a Yosemite Sam Tat on the side of her calf.

Might give the WOM a go tomorrow, wasn't feeling it today.

RhinoChiroCenter said...

My quads are thrashed from front squats this morning. Everytime I go really deep, I am limping around the rest of the day. I will try to be there tomorrow 6am, but I am definately fighting something off.
How about Quad-zilla, or Quad-rasaurus Rex?

Dawn, what dare I ask is "the terrible towel"?

Are we allowed to mix up names like Pamela= P.A. Lame (sounds very hip hop)?

Rich said...

Dr D - you only like that because your name translates to DA Mein (pronounced Da Man)..

Richard is not so good: When translated Ric Hard, sounds more like a porno name then an American Gladiator name. Thanks God my parents didn't name me Dick!

Greg said...

Pam, do you want to wait until I bring in the wrecking ball?

Dr. D, you had it earlier but now you're thinking too much. The best names are the ones that just make themselves.

Depending on who you ask my name would Hombre de Demolicion.

Demo Man out.

Dawn said...

Dr. D- The Terrible Towel is a yellow loin cloth that Steeler Fans swirl in the air like a helicopter when they score. It also doubles as a car shammy.

I have a good friend named Mike Hawk. It took me a while to figure out why he hated it so much.

Rich said...

Dawn-took me a minute... LOL

Rob said...

If I thought I saw 40,000 screaming Pittsburgh fans waving loin cloths to , as Puddy put it on Seinfeld, "support the team", I would have had new found respect (much more so than the rally monkey or the thundersticks) for western PA. I was thinking Tarzan's formal wear when Dan said loin cloth. Again, this blog heads back to the subject of junk!

Rob said...

And I'm glad Rich's parents didn't name him Dick either..."Look, Dick has got two 'bells between his legs!"
My apologies...feeling like crap here and now developing pink eye!

Greg said...

Guys don't forget American Gladiators is on again tonight at
8:00.

Pamela MacElree said...

It is a good thing that Rich's parents didn't name him Dick, if for no other reason than what Rob mentioned!

Promised Beth I'd do the WOM before Wednesday, but I'm always up for beating my own time with a second go around.

Dawn, please don't go with the name Terrible Towel, please.

Rob said...

Rather than continue the discussion on nicknames like Flashdancer and Rhinestone Cowboy, I'd prefer that everyone at CrossFit address me as Mr. Ross. Simple, to the point, and shows mutual respect...
Hey Dick, I'll let you know if I can make it tomorrow...might have to depend on whether Brian Shoop or Little J is leading the 6AM group.
No mas on the American Gladiators tonight...That knee blow-out last night made me switch the channel after about 5 minutes.

Sam L said...

hi

Greg said...

Is Dr. D Rhinestone Cowboy?

Rich said...

Ummm... Mr Ross, we have a problem. If Dr D is Rhinestone Cowboy, as Demolition Man suggests, I guess that makes me Dick Flashdancer? WTF?

Pamela MacElree said...

I just fell out of my chair!

Greg said...

This blog is like Pringles...once you pop you can't stop.

Rob said...

Still waiting on a WOD for tomorrow AM...or if Barry the Bear is going to be leading the charge at 6AM. I have to show off my swollen eye hole with goop dripping out of it AKA Pink Eye.

Pamela MacElree said...

I hope that if you really do have pink eye, you've administered the proper amount of medication to counteract it's contaigousness prior to attending the brutality that is the 6am WOD with Little J aka White Rhino.

Miso, I hope.

Greg said...

and 50...

Rob said...

I'm OK...I have other concerns that will stop me in the morning, like getting to bed now. I just won't share my towel from the towel service at the gym nor the bottled water that is handed out to each member as the WOD is completed.
And I might have to scrap the WOD for jumping jacks, pushups, and blurpees.
Good night!
