You've probably seen the infomercials on TV. It's the latest workout craze that promises extraordinary results in just 90 days. P90X is sweeping the nation, convincing out of shape human pears that they, too can look like the Adonises taunting them from their tv screen. Last weekend while we were vacationing in Las Vegas with Robyn's family, I got to see an impressive demonstration of P90X up close. Below is a brief sampling.


For those of you unable to make out the persons in the video, that's Jon Shipley struggling to complete a pull up, while Jess half heartedly tugs at a couple of rubber bands. The droning in the background is Matt "Bleeding Gums" Shipley belting out a tune on Rockband, while Jess's children scream in vain for attention. I'll withhold judgmenton P90X until the entire 90 days are up, but it's not looking good so far.

Wow. I officially know how Michael Phelps feels. There is always some stoner...errrr lawyer...out there secretly capturing you in your worst moments looking to piggyback their success off your good name. Matt's youtube success made it as an aside in a washed up tonight show and that small taste off fame has sent him scrambling for the next hit. Two and a half years later he has resorted to exploitations of his in-laws. 90 days will prove you wrong Brutus.

You make me laugh. They challenge will begin in 60 days. No secretly training on the side.

Man, if I were Robyn's family, I would kill you, Matt.
