I remember 1994 like it was yesterday. With a freshly minted driver’s license I had moved on from Drakkar Noir to Cool Water as my wannabe teen heartthrob cologne of choice, I had the full Keenan Ivory Wayans “In Living Color” wardrobe complete with Cross Color jeans and silk/rayon button down shirts, and I was still holding out hope that my height would catch-up with my arms and I’d be 6’5” before senior year of high school so I could go play basketball at Michigan after the Fab Five departed.

I’ll pause here for your laughter. Go ahead, take your time.

Also in 1994, it felt like the Winter Olympics literally JUST happened… and then… seemingly out of nowhere… we had a Winter Olympics AGAIN. People were still celebrating Midori Ito and Alberto Tomba, and I think Bonnie Blair was still on some of the Wheaties boxes — and then we were supposed to do it all over again?!

Welp, the 2020 CrossFit Games Open starts in less than 3 weeks at Arena Ready.

It’s like 1994 all over again. Except we all make better choices now, or thankfully at least I do.

More coming, stay tuned!
