That could be it. Perhaps Lisbeth is so full of mirth in person that there's none left for her online persona.

Really dude?
Why do you persist with the personal attacks?

If we're really interested in training like the cavemen, we should exercise naked or in loin cloths.

Dude. Great idea. For certain people.

It's fashion wear, not athletic wear.

I think she nailed it.

I'm not attacking, Sean. Maybe it's this internet thing where it's hard to tell tone and whatnot.

I do, however, think the director of social media for Crossfit HQ behaved even more immaturely than many posters here in the way she corresponded with her company's clients. I saw that and basically asked, "Is that really the way you want to act?" And she responded with an even more snide and unprofessional comment.

Whatever. I'm not losing sleep over it.

I really do take your word for it that Lisbeth is cool in person. I'm just saying that, on a professional level, she blew it here in this thread. Even her friends should be able to admit that.

Have you ever read any posts from people at HQ? Lke Dale Saran? That's there M.O. Nothing new here.

A lot of people turn into complete cocks on the internet.

Either that, or Sam is just a very, very boring* individual.

Re: CrossFit - Reekbok Apparel...

I don't get it.
K-Swiss writes a funny commercial or two - but doesn't support the community you love enough to post on their discussion board. This is....good?
Reebok pays for the right to use CrossFit on their shirts. They paid $10 million; I pay $1000 per year for the same. They sponsor dozens of athletes, and usher the Games into the popular spotlight. This is....bad?

I think you're missing the forest for the trees. It's about the outrageous prices in the store.

Is it just me or did they lower their prices already on some stuff?
