I don't disagree about the punishment. But that is not the face of a man who has ever "known better" about anything in his whole life.. If he owns a gym, it's because he got fired from every job he ever had, so his parents tried to set him up in business.

Any bets if he had a PBA courtesy card or badge on him when he was beating and trying to kill a police officer trying to do their job?

Fano: erik-k: dv-ous: One in every family.

As somebody who was gym-attending before COVID, I feel like the truly dedicated meathead crowd is a lot more susceptible to the "covid's a hoax" type rhetoric because they really, really want to believe they are in complete control of their health, lives, destiny, etc.

If nothing else, they're susceptible to it because
a) A teenage or 20-something meathead probably will get away with few to no symptoms
b) The gym being closed is the worst thing in the world to them

I know more than a few optometrists last spring who were strongly questioning whether COVID was really a big deal and it was pretty clear that the self interest of keeping their optical open and selling stuff that was the motivating factor convincing them it couldn't possibly.
Or as Winston Zedmore said "if there's a steady paycheck in it I'll believe anything."

I am a highly educated bowler. I went to college for that shiat.  No, seriously, I needed a 1 credit elective outside of the business school so I took bowling. It was fantastic, and I got an A, along with my high game of 211. Never broken 160 since.

Maybe.  But as a "fitness nut" that has tried going to the gym "post"-COVID, I can tell you it's a pretty mixed bag.  I see dedicated treadmill runners keep their masks on, while flabby housewives barely moving their legs take their masks off.  I've seen serious lifters keep their masks on through Olympic exercises, and wipe down everything before and after, and I've seen half-ass dumbasses wearing the chin diaper so their labored breathing doesn't interfere with their phat 15lb bicep curls.  The young, healthy members of the staff all keep their masks on, while the walking co-morbidity septuagenarian doesn't even wear a mask during his shift (even after another staff member tested COVID positive).

Overall, I'd agree that most people in the gym are self-centered, myself included.  But this clown represents us no more than any other ignorant asshole.


I need to be much more fitness-oriented than I've been, but, man, I would not set foot in one these days. even before This Our Plague-Era, when I'd go abuse the guest-pass of my brother's YMCA (and it was a pretty decent one!) - my main goal was minimum 1/4 mile of oxygen-free laps in their 50-meter pool. as a teenager, that would have been pure kid-play, but as a 40+yo. lol, yeah, I was proud of managing it.

but (Narrator: there's always a but!)

jfc/ffs, nice as it was, it's still "The Y" and you gots your tragedy-of-the-commons. people wearing filthy street-shoes on the deck, kids with leaky diapers running around every of the wheres, old people with leaky diapers standing still in the actual lanes... so actually huh, that sounds like a pretty normal YMCA lol.

They saw it on YouTube and either don't have any friends or family they talk to regularly that nipped it in the bud or they are surrounded by like minded people that feed the cycle.

As much as I agree with this, it's not going to happen.  The largest ring leaders, like the people that actually broke or stole or entered offices or assaulted people, they will do time.
Most of the others will probably get nothing more than a fine.

And even so, there is going to be a lot of "we were told to" defense, or the "I was just following a mob" defense.
For those that can afford lawyers that will be the way out.  But, whatever money they spend on a lawyer will be worse than the fine.

This isn't a new phenomenon either. Back in the 20s and 30s, a lot of the blackshirts and brownshirt types were those hypermasculine gym rats.

Also, it seems like every white athlete that's vocal about their politics is a Trumper, especially MMA fighters. I know they can't all be cause of those taking a knee demonstrations, but I don't hear them speak up about it if they are liberal.


I've heard physiologists say that those people who exercise way too much start developing a surplus of testosterone, and start to behave like teenagers; their mental processes resemble a 13-year-old boy's, which explains a lot right there.
