Countdown to the Games

Last summer, when the 2010 CrossFit Games were held at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, I'd just started CrossFit. I'd been enjoying the workouts in class, but it wasn't until I watched the Games -- via live online streaming -- that I really got hooked. Although I'd intended to watch just a few minutes, I ended up glued to my laptop screen all weekend long.

I can't even remember the last time I sat down in front of the boob tube for more than an hour, but if they televise the Games this year, I'm going to spend the entire last weekend of July on my couch, staring slackjawed at the screen. I can't wait.

Plus, with Reebok sponsoring the Games this year, maybe the second- and third-place finishers'll get something more substantial than a few hundred dollars' worth of gift cards.
