Default O those crazy Ruskies

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.

Actually, I think this is WipeOut, an American permutation of the epically awesome MXC: http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...xc%2C+playlist

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!

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.
