Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday: Show and Go, Fantasy Football, and I Got Rorschached
1. As many of you may already know, Eric Cressey is releasing his new product, Show and Go: High Performance Training to Look, Feel, and Move Better, next week.
Not surprisingly, it’s outstanding. Eric sent me an advance copy over the weekend, and all I can say is that it’s going to blow the pants off of any other program you’ve ever followed. Additionally, there are some pretty sweet add-on bonuses from the likes of Bret Contreras, Jim “Smitty” Smith, Chris Howard, as well as some guy named Gentilcore.
Needless to say, I’m really excited for Eric and can’t wait to see the results that people get. Stay tuned for more info later on this week.
2. This year marks the third year of our annual Cressey Performance Fantasy Football League. Our draft was actually this past Wednesday night, but due to uncontrollable circumstances (namely, my girlfriend made dinner that night and would have drop-kicked me with a spatula if I told her I wasn’t going to make it), I recruited CP client, Matt Singer (yes, THAT Singer) to draft my team for me.
I wake up the following morning to see how Matt did. All in all, I was really happy with the team he selected. I wasn’t more than five seconds into realizing that Tom Brady was my QB, when I immediately saw the headlines: Tom Brady in Car Accident. Noooooooooooooooooooo.
As you can imagine, I saw my fantasy team crumble before my eyes, but soon realized that it was just a fender bender and Football Jesus was already at Foxboro participating in practice. WHEW. Close call.
Of course, the Boston media had a field day with this story. I mean, it’s not like we’re still at war, un-employment is at an all time high, firefighters and police officers are being laid off, and we’re being taxed up the ass. TOM BRADY WAS IN A GODDAMN FENDER BENDER!!!!!! I’m not kidding when I say it was all over the news here.
In any case, The Improv Asylum had fun with the situation and released a fake 911 call that is absolutely hilarious.
3. So, as I’ve noted in the past my girlfriend is in the process of getting her PhD in Sports Psychology. Currently, she’s doing a year long internship working with disadvantaged children. Not light stuff to say the least, but she’s doing an amazing job and I couldn’t be more proud of her.
So the other night she brings home a Rorschach test.
Not that Rorschach, unfortunately. Nope, the ACTUAL Rorschach “inkblot” Test that serves as a psychological projective test to help ascertain subject’s personality characteristics and emotional functioning. Without blinking an eye, I said “absolutely” when she asked if she could practice on me.
Holy mother of WTF. Some of the things that I conjured up in my mind and blurted out would make Stephen King say, “dude, you’re weird.”
Just to give you an example, here’s an actual card from the test
When asked, “what do you see,” I said “two grizzly bears giving each other a high five.” My girlfriend immediately erupted in laughter. All told, there were ten cards, and I’m honestly surprised I’m not lying somewhere in a dark room in the fetal position sucking my thumb. Love you, honey!
Sorry to cut this one short, but I have to pack my meals for the day and head to the facility to lift with the guys. I see dead people.
