Rome Vs Sparta

Had I known that Maximus would have been so peeved that Leon got to be King, whereas he is but a soldier, I might have photoshopped the pictures differently. Looks like we are getting more royal in our acquaintances. We first have the Lionheart King, (those of you who don't know who Lionheart is, go check it up on the net, lazy bums), we have PTG, Peter The Great, a Russian Emperor, Xena the Warrior Princess. So really, they're as common as Datukships in this country. But a GENERAL, in the army of one of the greatest empires that ever ruled, and exists till TODAY..... how rare is that? But no, the boy still complains, like a wounded gladiator with a bleeding heart, that some get to be King. I can only roll my eyes till they fall out of their sockets.

Greeting us in the gym, was loud music, NOW WE ARE FREE, from the Gladiator Movie. Talk about Drama Queen!!! Now that's a moniker that might propel him to blue blood status. But a Queen in his mind is probably still less than a King. Mind you, not if you are the Queen of the British Empire, where the sun never sets.

King-dom aside, it was a great class. Megs sneaked in late. Mrs Lionheart sneaked out for her PT session. By the end of track two, FCI was dousing the front row with his bodily fluids. Some other instructors might have slipped and injured themselves with that amount of wet patches in front. Certifiable Steve was told off by FCI for disturbing Lionheart. What valor. It must be a subconscious desire to rule, hence the barking of orders. But generals do that too.

For the third track, with the stomp, he proclaimed, yeah, let me hear the stamping of your feet like a million army...... Lionheart corrected him, and said, million soldiers. There was another reference to 300. Can't remember exact context. Track 5, when we split the room in two, I whispered to Sunshine, "bet you its gonna be Rome against Sparta"....AND SURE ENOUGH, he points to where I am and says, GREECE, and points to the other side and says, ROME. Which reminds me,

"Sparta (Doric: Σπάρτα Spártā, Attic: Σπάρτη Spártē) was a city in southern Greece, which existed from about the 10th century BC until the time of the Byzantine Empire".

So, not only is Sparta not a country, but is merely a city, and has long since disappeared.

For track 6, he invited "the Phoenix" to perform her groovy jinga. I always assumed that Shades referred to the instructor in question as "the Phoenix" coz of her dramatic injury in, she rose from the ashes of calamity kinda thing. But I found out actually the lass is from Shanghai, and therefore, the Shanghai Phoenix.

Well, it's my 3rd time doing the new release with FCI. My favourites are the speedball with the single beat on 7, 8, or was it 6,7. (in track 3). Oh, yes, that reminds me, what IS that word he uses for one of the moves? two shon? touche? two shot? Can anyone enlighten me.

FBB...I knew we were going to have one hell of a class, when, true to his status, Maximus played NOW WE ARE FREE, as a pre-cursor to the class. Great class and extremely farnee, more farnneeee than usual. Actually I didnt really notice Certifiable Steve disburbing me or anything, until he barked "Hey you, stop disturbing him!!". I think more of a case acting out his gladiatic role, and hence roaring and commanding like one. Hehehehe...And based on his passing shot to you before you left, I think our Maximus will take on Emperor Hirohito and bomb Nagasaki next.....hint hint....

Based on his pass
