2009 CrossFit Games Page RSS Feed?

Up until a month or two ago there was a working RSS feed for the 2008 CrossFit Games page. Is there an RSS feed for the 2009 CrossFit Games page?

TIA,

-Fred.

I have a Klean Kanteen that my wife purchased during a "plastic eradication" moment in our house. She was disappointed to find out that she can't use it because it makes the water taste metallic to...

Re: Bgsu...

I think Rogue has plans to add a Toledo facility in the future.

BG is only an hour and 15 minutes south of Ann Arbor. Visit Hyperfit USA (http://www.hyperfitusa.com)!

Re: Which SS book to get?

Thanks, Jay! 12 weeks of SS works wonders! I've been practicing my power clean since Sunday, but I've still got a long way to go. Too bad I spent four months perfecting bad form before attending the...

Re: Which SS book to get?

Buy the Revised 2nd Edition (I assume that this is the only version that you can purchase from the Aasgaard Company).

I posted pictures of the two different covers of the 2nd edition for the...

Re: My First Day

I understand the concern regarding rhabdo, but I had at least four Pukie visits during my first month of CrossFit. They pretty much disappeared as I became more conditioned. I also learned that I was...

Re: Why are Affiliate gym memberships so $$$?

Re: Five Finger Sizing

Thanks for the info, Tim! Please give us a review of the KSOs after you break them in. I think I see a pair of FF KSOs in my future.

Re: Is something suppressing my immune system?

Justin,

Read the "Weak Immune System" thread here in "Health and Medical Issues". Some of us have had similar problems. IMHO it's stress. I was sick 6 times (three of them with food poisoning like...

Re: Five Finger Sizing

Just to confuse things for you:

- I wear a US 10.5 in athletic shoes.
- US 10 in Chuck Taylors.
- My VFFs are size 42. Really snug for some toes, a little loose for others. I have a little...

Re: Pics of the soon to be Rogue Do Wins
