The end game of MiddleEasy.com is us generating enough revenue where we can create an agility course dangerous enough where professional supervision is required. If we can't make the dream of Cat, Bauzen, Kieran and the rest of us competing against each other in friendly timed runs on our regulation sized course then I don't really know what we are even doing here. What's the point?

Yes, you guys can come over, but make sure your parents tell our parents it's OK. Also, you may need to sign a release form in case you get hurt, don't worry, it's cool: LayzieTheSavage is a notary public.

Footage has surfaced of Sergei Kharitonov testing his cat-like abilities on the Russian Ninja Warrior show, we suggest you watch it below.

If you like WipeOut, Bonnie, you will absolutely love MXC. It's an old Japanese show that's practically the same thing, but it's been dubbed into English making a farce of the whole thing. It was on SpikeTV back when they were first getting started. That & Slam Ball! :frantics:

I've been watching American Ninja Warrior recently; I would love to see Matt try it.

Matt's too solid for the course, IMO. It's really tough fo heavier guys, especially once you hit stage 3 that's all upper body strength. Matt's not got the right type of build for defeat Mt. Midoriyama.

I agree, especially as they advance, the courses do seem to favor guys who are lighter and who have some height and arm reach, but I'd still like to see what he could do. I think he'd have the upper body strength and he's got good balance; my only concern would be "reach" for things like the 14' warped wall and bars that are spaced far apart.

I don't know, you could be right; when I first saw it, I thought of Matt and wondered if he could possibly do it.

What do you think about an MMA Wipeout? They could have Chuck, Randy, Matt...who else? :laugh:

I love the Ninja Warrior shows. Keeps giving me ideas for my own workouts. Just built a high pull up station that we plan to put a salmon ladder on at one end.

I thought of you too when I saw the show. Noticed a few guys from New Jersey the other night during the Northeast competition--can't remember if any of them made it thru for Vegas.

I hated to see some of the top guys, during that last round who really should have made, get knocked out because they rushed it and ended up making fatal mistakes. :sad:

If you get your salmon ladder up, some video would be nice of y'all doing it. :)

I love both Wipeout and ANW. Did you guys catch it last week, there was a super athlete (I can't remember his name) that didn't make it through the first obstacle. :cry:

I think I saw that one; I thought maybe he might have rushed it, but he said his foot slipped from moisture. I seems like it's a little unfair for the guys whose turn comes later once night falls when the dew and moisture become a factor, but I guess it's just something they have to deal with.

I was really impressed with the British guy from the Northeast division who ended up with the best time both in the qualifier and the final course. A couple of the guys made it look so easy.

Did you see it last week, I think it was the midwest competition, when that guy fell and busted his ear drum? I wondered if that could affect him permanently? :unsure:
