Workout of the Day (WOD)

Friday 3/6/15 Top Team PIctures announced and 15.2

Thank you Halli and Nick for being our guest judges this week.  The following is copy and pasted directly from an email from them both and I have not doctored it in any way.............even though I should have :-)

Here is the link to all the team pictures if you would like to see them again while reading Halli and NIcks critiques:  Pictures link
________________________________________

It is our honor to critique the team photos for the 2015 Crossfit Open. With over two decades of design experience between us, we feel uniquely suited to judge others from afar while they work extremely hard. We may not be able to do more than 10 toes-to-bar, but we can critique the crap out of your photos for red time. 

Below are excerpts from our critique:

I'm all Outta Bubblegum (Nicole S. Team)

Nick: If there was an award for realism, this is it. I mean, nothing says "the placid waters of Interbay" more than that blue mat. 

Halli: I can barely drag my ass into Crossfit so cheers to this team for dragging in an actual canoe. The biggest question…who is the real owner of that pink suit and why? 

Snow Ginger and the Seven WODwarfs (Geoff's Team) 

Nick: Nice work using the "butter knife" tool in Photoshop to crop your heads.      

Halli: Ron, you better take this photo down before Disney comes after this team's ass for copyright infringement! Good news is copyright law says there needs to be seven elements differentiation to avoid a substantial similarity claim. No joke on the seven thing!   

Flex Appeal (Jake's Team)        

Nick: I appreciate the asymmetry of the photo—Very avante garde. Also love the realistic photoshopping of those muscles. Nice work! 

Halli: Where is my free t-shirt? No seriously.  

The Rack Pack (Ron's Team)

Nick: Ron could’ve at least changed out of his work clothes. Points for general bad-assery across the whole team. Sandra should consider accessorizing with chains all the time. 

Halli: Nice work with max effort for fashion. You all now have new Facebook profile photos to boot! I bet Ron has a full size version of this poster hanging over his bed by now.  

#2015IntramuralChamps#Suckitronwewin (James Team)

Nick: Everything is so right about this photo and so wrong at the same time. Did you hear Screech stabbed some dude? Also, points for embedding hashtags for what is obviously a well-conceived social media strategy that claims victory and tells Ron to “suck it”. #MoreHashtags

Halli: I'mmmmm soooooo exciteddddd….about this photo (you will only understand this reference if you are a true SBTB fan). Bek + Nilufer - too perfect. Zack attack those WODs!  

Deadliest Snatch (Shea's Team)

Nick: So does Shea's entire team have crabs? 

Halli: The only thing this photo is missing is Captain Keith's Cup o Noodle cup filled with chew spit. Bonus points for Taryn's American Nerf Sniper impression.     

Val-Acondas (Valery's Team) 

Nick: Based on the team logo/name submission, I’m surprised by the amount of clothes in this photo. Matt isn’t showing nearly enough skin.

Halli: #breaktheinternetval   

Black Eyed T's (Travis's Team)

Nick: I’m still confused by the “My Humps” song. What the heck was that???

Halli: Again, where is my free shirt?!      

Please Don't Feed the Wildlife (Shogun's Team)   

Nick: Can you imagine the creative session that produced this work of art? “Hey, let’s use that image of Megan puking! Yeah, awesome idea! Shogun can be eating some flesh too! Totes! Hey, what if we made everyone frick’n tigers??? Done and done.”

Halli: Tigers!? Ohhhh I totally get it guys! :) 

7 Snatches & 1 Jerk (Taryn's Team)

Nick: What WOD is this? I could totally RX this.

Halli: I love nothing more than cheerleader-esque, typographic reenactments. That said, I am deeply perplexed by Taryn's contribution. Are you misplaced punctuation or acting as the single jerk while you force your poor team to hold these silly poses?       

Do you want to build a Swoleman (Lance's Team)   

Nick: You guys are all special snowflakes. 

Halli: Err…is that a turkey leg or something else? Regardless, Let it Go. Please.  

Rockout with my Chalk Out (Erin's Team)      

Nick: This scores very high in my book, esp since Halli won't let me wear my Metallica shirt to the gym or really anywhere out in public for that matter. Bonus points for the typographic chalk display. Or wait, is that actually chalk?  

Halli: I love the detail here. Its like a Where's Waldo for Crossfitters. Little surprises around every corner.  

Red WOD and Blue (Joey's Team)

Nick: A photo of the women's division would have been super hot. Then again, it would have been totally ruined by your heads pasted on.     

Halli: Damn, I want to rip Kristi's clothes off.          

Will WOD for Wine (Beth's Team)

Nick: This must be the team of “Elite Athletes,” because I’ve tried drinking a bottle of red before a workout and it didn’t end well.

Halli: Will WOD for wine!? That's my line!        

Now that we have come to the end of our critique, we've narrowed down our top 5 selections. These teams were selected for a variety of factors including a design prowess, full team participation and/or general awesomeness.

BREAKING NEWS:

Team Rack Pack has been disqualified. Sources tell us that they sought the help of a design professional for their submission. That's like deflating footballs you naughty Tom Bradys! Not cool!  

Now for our Top 5:
5th place 7 Snatches & 1 Jerk (1 extra point)
4th Place Please Don’t Feed the Wildlife (2 extra points)
3rd Place #2015IntramuralChamps#Suckitronwewin(3 extra points)
2nd Place I'm all Outta Bubble Gum
(4 extra points)
1st Place The Deadliest Snatch (5 extra points)

We will have normal classes all day and evening, we will run this WOD in 2 heats for every class.
