Re: "...all marines know freakin crossfit..."

Re: "...all marines know freakin crossfit..."

I would definately say that the majority of Marines know. We now have XFit gyms on all of our major bases. Most units have also incorporated XFit into there weekly PT sessions.

Re: College Football, anyone?

LOL.....our egos were crushed with the loss to Utah. This loss to Penn St. will do nothing to hurt it more. All I can hope for is that we are the upset team in the Big 10 this year. Look what we did...
