I'd get a purse but I doubt it be as fancy as yours. Rip may be a lifting expert but there's plenty of "experts" out there.

Hahahaha. I love it. I was on your side dude. I was being highly sarcastic. I don't like that people are so black and white about things. You were a perfect case. Tell a doctor or a first responder it's somehow "hardcore" to tear your hands apart exercising.

I did love your comeback though. .

I'm a nurse and we have these things called band aids and gloves. I used to wear gloves but I now just use chalk and get over it.

Re: Gloves.

Awesome. I bet your Fran time dropped by 2 minutes since you stopped using those sissy gloves.

Re: Gloves.

No gloves would probably drop my Fran time by 3 minutes. Just like band aids are watertight and exam gloves never rip. Or how the Seahawks beat the Packers.

Wait, that last one did happen... I can link the official score if you'd like

Being a Vikings fan is NEVER easy... but that night brought a small glimmer of joy to our lives!!!

Back on topic... seems like most are anti-glove... I know hanging on the pull up bar today during On Ramp 1 screwed both my palms up pretty good. I wouldn't mind a pair for that but can definitely understand the reasoning behind not using them to lift with. Besides, I'd rather have useful hands to catch a disc then try to impress chicks with my neato beat up hands!
