New Motor City CrossFit shirt design

Inspired by my recent reading of the newspapers, which eerily mirror a book I just read that told today's story 50 years ago, I designed a shirt for myself on Zazzle and ordered it. Apparently some folks liked it, so I figured I'd let you's guys know about it to order too:

Re: New Motor City CrossFit shirt design

I am not really a fan of science fiction (or fiction in general). But I am sure others enjoy it.

Re: New Motor City CrossFit shirt design

one of the best books I've ever read. And the shirt must add .15 horsepower for any WoD!

It actually looks like a really nice professional shirt too in person, I got mine in last week and it's a really good looking shirt.

I don't know about you, but I can beat up Chuck Norris when I'm wearing this shirt.

Re: New Motor City CrossFit shirt design

Someone random ordered this last week or the week before, though it doesn't say who, I'm wondering, just kinda curious. Had a guy at the store stop me in the checkout line and ask "Hey, where'd you get that shirt", he said he's an Ayn Rand fan too.

Re: New Motor City CrossFit shirt design

LOVE THE SHIRT!!! And also the book! matt - you have a buddy of mine now training with you named Mike Cooper. Please punish him without prejudice - he is quite liberal. I doubt that he has read the same genre....I am soooo gonna get that shirt to wear whenever I see him...

Re: New Motor City CrossFit shirt design

Cooper is? I'd have never guessed it from talking with him. Of course politcs rarely comes up as a conversation topic in the gym. About as close as it comes are the bumper stickers on my car, and the shirt I was wearing to the gym today (I wear one of these about once every other week):

http://t-shirts.cafepress.com/item/r...rsey/229307081 (w/f safe)

Cooper's a good guy. He's got a good squat (can get some serious depth while still keeping his chest up, though at way deep his butt winks under some), he learned the snatch in about 30 minutes, and hammered out a ton of good form 65 lb snatches in a metcon the other day.

Re: New Motor City CrossFit shirt design

Matt, you are at a distinct disadvantage in your dialogue with Mr. Cascella, in that you haven't known him for several decades like I have. Allow me to interpret his commentary to more semantically accurate terms.......when he uses the term liberal......substitute the following description....anyone who doesn't always carry a gun, who is willing to use it, and feels that it is a viable negotiating tool in nearly any circumstance.......and when he says i don't care for the writings of Rand.....what he actually means is that I haven't read every piece of her work and feel that she is the vigrin mary reincarnate........i have only read some of her work...and found it to be a bit dry, but nicely rooted in ideals somewhat aligned with my own......

Vince......give this poor guy a break......don't you have more important things to do.......afterall I am sure that there is someone within no more than a hundred miles of you that needs shot right now .......lol

take care guys.....talk soon.
