New morning routine
I have gotten used to having Yeshua around. I am sad that he's leaving next week, ostensibly to go back to practice the dark arts of Steve72, brand new BJJ black belt and brand old pillar of evil.
Here's how the mornings usually work: I go to CrossFit ass early or just wake up at a normal hour (like when it's light outside). Either way, I get to the academy around 8am and dink around on the computer for a while. Eventually, about 8:30 or 9, Yeshua starts to show signs of life in the room he sleeps in. "Signs of life" = "thumping around behind the door, stretching, emerging, blinking several times, grunting a greeting, banging around in the bathroom and then getting to my favorite part of the morning."
My favorite part of the morning is when Yeshua sits at the academy computer, pulls Your Love by The Outfield up on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgfSzuFD8rw), and we listen/sing along to it 2 or 12 times. The video is awesome too, for a couple reasons. First, it is the epitome of 80s cheese. From the hair to the drippy paint motif, it is friggin' awesome.
Second, as Yeshua and Kuan figured out, the lead singer in the video bears more than a passing resemblance to Marcelo Garcia. Marcelo is frequently referred to as the Michael Jordan of grappling, so there is lots of justifiable hero worship within the grappling world where he is concerned. So of course I posted a thread on nhbgear.com joking that Marcelo had branched out professionally and had also managed to find a way to travel back in time (because of the hair).
Turns out that Kon, a poster to the forum, showed Marcelo and his wife the thread. Fortunately they laughed.
So now the latest part of the morning routine is to look at other 80s hair band videos to see if anybody else looks like a famous grappler so that Marcelo can put together a proper black belt band. We've looked at Winger, Warrant, and Whitesnake so far (all the Ws are strictly coincidental). No luck. Any suggestions?
