When I was growing up a “black & blue” just meant a bruise. It didn’t have any hidden meanings or subtle agendas; it was just a common phrase.
Sometimes when doing hard work or training you get bruised up (like catching your finger between two 45lb plates or dropping one on your foot)
You won’t die, but it gets your attention!
Anyway, we are open the day after Thanksgiving.
So, instead of following the herd to the stores and fighting for a parking spot on Friday, just go train instead.
If you are local, or on vacation, come to the Cave.
You can shop online later anyhow.
