Couldn't be. Good and it pressure situation of the NHL com I could get one pull it after yesterday feel and it's even stranger. But if you even more so than I feel bad for the -- -- because -- -- the next time we do this experiment I am practicing for at least through weeks and I would I would practice for one day out doing my -- five. And yet here's my issues that -- text me unsolicited and says the over under six and a half I could do six so I went before Tim I did seven. And and Tim goes and does eight. If it would make it sound like -- that it appeared in fourteen OK there. You're a white guy I'm disappointed in the most polished and well -- Always alternate Jim Scott alluded new balance Jimmy's always tweeting up visits are -- -- leading leading in the month and you go up there. And you win a buck 7065. -- even know what you work out every single day you can only do seven. I could -- earlier to 95. Okay to back I.

Q what what five foot five and Joey went seven and Timmy went in you went what they got a I got the last one just barely over the ball and -- Does he started don't know what this mean I guess again it's that whole year's little guy. You you work out so you should be able to do. But I was little and skinny when I was in high school like the last time I did the presidential fitness test the last time actually had a dual pull up I mean. I was getting emails and FaceBook. Messages from people that are you know. Still in the region from when I went to high school around it they're stunned right now I can do a couple ups. The fact that I could do one of this embedded back there's the board but you could do wine. He didn't want to back and yes that was it I know I'm getting this I have picked this past like I practice you don't. -- with a comic brown on the college he'll be only exercises we did.

Bad movement is like it was crazy so you know that test is coming due to shovel you do the vertical leap we do the broad jump -- Ali practicing. I pulled for the past better than if you really -- I can I think that's more the true test of strength. Than actual like bench press nonstop they can lead to a -- company pulled into the animal's an apple players. Could not do and Paula corners companies yeah usually -- -- equivalents using my victories actually making me look less athletic them. I don't know and -- -- I'm sure there's a million undercut. Right agency committee at the more athletic you unless you can do idea I'm the most athletic -- here it's something in my life and argued charted our legs out from under I'd say it's not that that I'm giving you credit for being -- to report for all that all the Saber metrics and all -- odd -- -- people keep. On on sports and athletics like they don't do one for pull ups. You've set the bar. I set the bar at my chin I don't I don't see Logan Mankins do not. By eight Pulitzer -- Sebastien Ballmer but you can't do for pull ups. But Tom Brady can maybe do a lot. Also this cycle which couple things number one else happy that -- get the former over under history of -- out of my have been ones and I also got my man's got over their new balance Jim McKenna no illicit because I get peppered with tweets. But how I don't go over there and now I don't show law and how Jolie goes all the time in what was going all the time and I just don't do it not on this album that. What now I think the -- gonna stop. Right because what it what my mascot it like one and a half.
