Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Any version of that idea would be incredibly awesome, IMO. they could even make it the weekend before the Games so that whoever wins enters the Games already at a disadvantage of not being totally rested, similar to wild cards in other sports.

Also, Lindsey Valenzuela seems to be pretty peeved at how Regionals went down. She's joked on twitter about the judging, or lack there of. She's said she's going to write an article on the weekend, can't wait to see if she vents in there
I thought CF HQ had a rule where they had the right to invite any competitor... The question is are they going to use this right and why they have it.

Is it in case someone drops out before the games due to injury or something or use it for another agenda?
