This morning my son, Frank, and I went to Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China. Even at 6 a.m. there were a lot of people walking around. Some were flying kites, others just out for a stroll. And of course there were merchants who had goods for sale – mostly of the 2008 Olympic kind.
Frank and I found a quiet spot in the square that wasn’t too populated. I dropped to one knee, cut the deck of 52 poker cards now known to the Furey Faithful as the Matt Furey Exercise Bible, and began our routine.
Both of us were still a bit sore from yesterday’s workout in Ningxia province – but once you get the blood pumping, the soreness fades into the distance. Not only that, bt because you’re doing your workout in a unique way – with a deck of playing cards – that just so happen to have this cartoon character on them – with the exact exercises you’re supposed to do – along with the number of repetitions – it isn’t difficult to begin drawing a crowd.
In the picture enclosed with this email you can see Frank doing Tablemaker Pushups whilst I’m doing Hindu squats. Directly in front of us you can see a nice crowd beginning to gather. And this was merely at the start of the routine.

When you have this many people watching you don’t want to be a sissy, that’s for sure – so you finish the whole deck no matter what. That’s what we did and afterward it was Hi-5 city along with a Joe Montana-esque “Hey, I just threw a touchdown pass” pose.
After we finished our training Frank asked: “Daddy, how many kids my age are using your exercise bible?”
I said: “Not enough yet, bro. Not enough. But Father’s Day is coming soon – so this could be the very thing that will help more fathers inspire their kids to get super hero fit.”
“What if the man who buys it doesn’t have any kids?” asked Frank.
I said: “That problem can be easily solved if he gets the Matt Furey Exercise Bible. It’ll put more lead in his pencil than he’s ever had before.”
“What does that mean?” asked Frank.
I said: “Son, that’s a discussion for another day. It’ll be here before you know it.”
Well, that’s my report for you today. I’ll be posting more photos on my blog on a regular basis, too. So be sure to check in there each day, too.
Oh, and before I forget, we’re down to 249 decks of the Matt Furey Exercise Bible left. If you want to get one – you better JUMP on this pronto.
