And so are tons of other awesome CrossFit brands. CrossFit is sweeping the nation, and we’re all caught up in the inspirational excitement from the CrossFit Games starting July 25. So pause your WOD and sprint down to the Basement (feel free to throw a few burpees in on the way here) and check out all the goodness we’ve got to offer!
With the George Lucas fiasco in the news recently, lots of customers have been asking us what’s going to happen to Sports Basement.
Our Presidio store will remain at its current awesome location through 2016, and then will probably move to a new awesome location 700 yards down the street toward the Palace of Fine Arts.
When we have finalized the details about the relocation, our customers will be the first to find out. One way or another, we’ll continue to be a force for great deals and community happenings in the Presidio.
And if you didn’t already know it, we have a second San Francisco location on Bryant Street in the Mission (some call it Potrero) with the same amazing deals and vibe.
Have you heard? The FIFA World Cup kicks off (yay puns!) this Thursday, June 12. Of all the places in the U.S of A., we think the Bay Area is the best (obviously) in part because we don’t limit our patriotism to one country. So which team name will you be screaming at the top of your lungs? Whose colors will you be painting your face with? What scarf will you be waving like an elongated woolen flag (when you’re not using it to protect your neck against Karl the Fog)? We want to know!
He’s 357 miles away as the car flies.
He’s gaunt – down 10 pounds (and he didn’t need to lose weight).
He’s got a beard.
He’s got 3 blisters and 2 cracks on his feet – under control and on the mend.
And he smelled to high heaven.
