      This is a great find, T.

      Best part of the site is the pseudonym “Patrick Bateman” on the cards. You may remember him as the title character in “American Psycho.”

      Outstanding, T. I don’t know which way to go with a response here—do I bask in the brilliance of this concept, or uncomfortably wonder how you found it?

      And, Chudy: not at all surprised you pulled the American Psycho reference. Strong work. I will now stop using italics…

        It’s best if you don’t ask how I found about meatcards. Just bask.

    Yesterday was six months since I came home from my spinal surgery.

    I started healing immediately, but my recovery, I believe started the day I returned to the gym, and my CrossFit community.

    It’s a mark of pride for me that I made it back to unassisted pull ups yesterday

    Mel, John, BK – I cannot thank you enough for your support and encouragement, and holding me back just enough.

    Blessed Be
    Tod

      Tod,

      Congratulations on your progress. You’re a lesson in healing and, more specifically, that success is driven from desire and belief.

    John,

    This is the actual text from the episode that I referenced during the bacon discussion this morning. In digging up this dialogue I realized how prominently pigs (and other meats) are featured in Simpsons episodies. If The Simpsons doesn’t warrant a lifetime Emmy, I don’t know what show does.

    Homer: Wait wait wait a minute Lisa, honey, are you saying that you’re never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?

    Lisa: No!

    Homer: Ham?

    Lisa: No!

    Homer: Pork chops?

    Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal!

    Homer: Yeah right Lisa, a wonderful, “magical” animal.

    At the risk of irking the vegetarians among us, I also like this exchange (again from the Simpsons):

    Jimmy: Uh, Mr. McClure, I have a crazy friend who says it’s wrong to eat meat. Is he crazy?

    Troy McClure: No, just ignorant.

      Droz,

      You proved, yet again, that all good things come from Homer. He is so S-M-R-T. I mean, S-M-A-R-T.

      Mmmmm bacon… If you’re a Simpsons fan, Duffy’s (near the 930 club) will be having an all Simpsons trivia night. Maybe a MPH team?

        Yes, Joe! This is huge.

        MC, you and I will co-captain the team. We can hold tryouts and everything.

        Our quest for athletic/world domination continues, and as long as we can keep the crayons out of our brains, this is about as sure a thing as can be—success is inevitable.

    Gang,

    Regarding the email I sent this morning: if you are registered for a class that Saturday, do not cancel yourself just yet (or delay registering, for that matter). Once I know what interest we have, I’ll send another email confirming the event—late next week.

    John

    Tonight a whole new level of Crossfit has been attained. Wall-Ball Burbees. It is official.

    At 5:59PM on May 20, 2010 John Main did the world’s first version of a wall-ball throw into a Burbee and into a catch.

    Tod has video and I hope that he will post it soon so that we can get a viral thing going on YouTube to capture the world’s attention.

    I can’t wait to see us all on Church St doing this as a WOD. Blood will spill.
