The home-team atmosphere…

The big CrossFit events are fun.  Tons of people go, you get to see your friends compete and also some total studs throw down.  Once it is all over, everyone kinda moves on with their lives and the extravaganza is over as is the season for everyone save a small group of people.  After the Boston Iron match, I couldn’t wait to watch it again and share with everyone there the same camaraderie we had in favor of the Boston Iron.  I am not saying we all hated the Miami Surge (not saying we didn’t) , but it was impressive just how quickly we all got behind our home team.  It was spectacular to watch the crowd groan in a loss, but celebrate in a victory.  This part, this direct link with the competition and the competitors, is missing in the CrossFit competitions, and it is definitely a key component in what makes the GRID outstanding

The match…

Perhaps the best selling point of the GRID is the non-stop action.  Inside of a two hour window, two teams complete 11 events against one another at an unmatchable lightning pace.  The different matches are clearly team oriented and can easily expose weaknesses as well as reward strengths.  These 11 events are varied enough that you are not watching the same thing for too long and each match is over in under 10 minutes.  This quick pace keeps things extraordinarily fresh and exciting.  There are no real dull moments (other than your team losing an event) simply because there can’t be…the workouts are done too fast.  With just enough time to between events to visit the restroom or get some refreshments, it is one of the better sports to see live.  If you didn’t get to go and you enjoy CrossFit, you owe it to yourself to go whenever it happens again.

For realsies,

NPGL…

It is no longer news that the NPGL has run into some financial straits.  Things started off very well, but by mid-season, the problems had set in.  With that out of the way, let’s talk about all of things that happened right and will hopefully happen a lot more in the future.  Let’s talk about the stage, the match, the home-team atmosphere, the advantages and disadvantages, and the relationship with CrossFit.

The stage is huge!!!  Yes, Regionals and the Games are incredibly big events, but those events are scheduled as a once-a-year extravaganza.  The idea of having a season worth of “Games-like” events definitely put some pep in my step.  If you were able to go to the Boston Iron match against the Miami Surge, you would have gotten a good idea of what I am trying to explain.  Seeing the enormous set up by Eleiko, the dynamics of how each event plays out, and actually just watching the matches unfold were akin to the most exciting parts of the Regionals competition (I haven’t been to the games, but I am confident that they are comparable).  The grid on which the GRID is played is unique in terms of presenting CrossFit.  It is something that has never been done before, but still demonstrates that there is plenty that can still be done for this sport.

One down, four to go,
