    I'm just going to start Crossfit again and make sure my diet is in check. After Bill Starr and my job I went from 186 after UD 2.0 to 220lb. Crossfit may not be the best for strength, but damn it made me feel good. Plus I want to pick up a MA. Anywhoo that was off topic.

    I'm glad that there seems to be some interested in having this meet.

    What is this sweet tea you speak of and what makes you think we don't have it in NYC?

    "What is this sweet tea you speak of" is exactly the reaction I get anywhere north of about Virginia.

    Shooter, I just don't get it - all my college buddies from the south (South Carolina, Georgia, etc.) all *RAVE* about sweet tea and say that the midwest blows because it doesn't have sweet tea, etc. I went to college in Indiana.

    However, as far as I know, sweet tea is just regular iced tea... with TONS AND TONS of sugar. It's not even that good!

    Wait a minute. People actually drink regular tea?

    Disgusting. The only tea IS sweet tea. Anything else blows harder then your mom at a bon-jovi concert.

    Is that all it is? We've got sugar, cane sugar, splenda, equal, and every other sweetening chemical known to man in NYC. I'm sure Shooter can get his sweet tea.

    That said, I drink tea sans sugar.

    At some point this summer, I am definitely going up to NYC. I've never been and I want to check out the city.

    But.. I'm really not sure when I'll be able to. We'll see.

    The sugar is put into the tea while it is still hot from brewing; then it is chilled.

    Yankees like TwiloMike will never understand. They also don't understand that any type of carbonated soft drink is to be referred to as "Coke".

    Wow, nice arms Mark. I'm officially jealous.

    I live near midtown, so I'd be glad to join in. I know a few of the hardcore gyms around town. Maybe we could get a special deal if there's a group of us.
