It was completly empty last year. Most everyone will be at the finals, at the fight, or at the bars watching the fight.... which means more MEAT for me lmao

During the mens Finals?!?!

I know that it was probably tough to set all this up, but was this the best time?

I would love to do both, but I already got my tickets to the Finals.

I'll be there for sure. I don't have tickets for the finals, but if I had bought some I'd miss it for a chance to work out even in close proximity to these guys. Unless I'm really lucky and win some.

Let me know what kinda magic you can work. Maybe some kind of cloning so you can do both?

I may just try and see if some peeps want to hit up a workout before the Finals, those that are going that is. I know there will be plenty of cats that will be attending the finals that would still love to lift as a crew.

It sucks for me since my party is starting at 7 so I gotta be there to get it underway. Got too many people form all over coming in town for it. So that sucks, but I know you ll hold it down for the Cbus chapter.

Im def. sad Ill be missing it but nothing I can really do.

Good work!!

02-27-08, 3:20 pm
Uh yeah...looks like a lot of cats on here are/were planning to attend the Finals...I already bought my tickets(i've never been to a bb show before), and I really would like to attend this ABC brothers as well as the finals...I know the others feel the same way. I mean this is a real bad timing..why right when the finals are going on? Why not another day like fri night or maybe after the finals are over with? I'm pretty sure the finals end around 9pm.......this kinda sucks.

Roland bro, I'm not sure what time the gym closes, but I want to see if some of the Animals that ARE going to the finals (like myself) want to get in a workout right after the Cage closes at 6 on Saturday.

I'm sure we can all talk about it on Saturday at the Cage.

This Arnold Classic is gonna be sick, and I ain't driving 10+ hours to miss it.

There's plenty of time to make an Animal out of him. It will be interesting to see his take on the experience and the Cage.

I took my dad to the 1990 Night of Champions in NYC, it was an awesome time. Peace.
