The following blog post/poem is from Robin with team "Rock Out with your Chalk Out"

We are Team Rock Out with Your Chalk Out.
Ready for a CrossFit intramural bout.
Other teams like Jerks and Snatches,
Will never be able to catch us,
'Cause what we lack in muscle ups we make up in shouts!

Let me introduce you to Erin, our fearless leader.
She hates Fran, but really, who can blame her?
Originally from Alaska,
She'll take you to task-a,
And turn you into a firebreather.

There's Beth for whom CrossFit's a family affair.
With her boys and her hubby, she does WODs like a bear.
She does burpees with impunity,
And loves the CFIB community,
This hockey player's got a great deal of flair!

Next there's Emily, our teammate from Jersey.
Who's a badass at bruising roller derby.
CrossFit hero: Akinwale.
She's fitter than a tamale (you try rhyming something with Akinwale?!)
That right, she'll put you in a world of hurt -  whee.

And how about Tina, who loves a good joke.
Any WOD with deadlifts leave her stoked.
A native of Tacoma,
Where they've got that aroma (look it up on Wikipedia...)
She's the only one who loves Fran - yo!

We've got Jim who works in academia.
At 7 a.m. he's quite entertaining and zany...uh.
He loves doing WODs to Kesha,
And thinks wallballs are pisser (said with a Boston accent)
Trust me, you want in on his kind of mania.

And meet Richard who's soon on sabbatical
To do something amazing and radical.
Train five times a day?
To make it to the Games?
Now that would be nuts and fanatical.

Now Al is our Canadian master.
He CrossFits and plays over 40 indoor soccer.
Nary a rude thing to say,
But thinks Simon, Kevin and Jim are weird dudes, eh....
Every day he's getting fitter and faster.

And there's me, the author and scribe.
Writing these mad rhymes for our a-mazing tribe.
I may not be Dre,
Or Camille Bazinet,
But I'll do WODs 'til pigs learn to fly.

So that's it.  That's us in a nutshell.
'Cept Tim who's traveling and couldn't get me his profile.
We came to take names,
That's right, we've got game,
We're giving this intramural comp hell!
