Sorry Ladies, Daniel Woods is Off the Menu
posted by Matt Stark
He has climbed 14d, flashed 14a and now with the ascent of the The Game V16, he has solidified himself as the world’s best boulderer. His recent win at the ABS Nationals in Alexandria Virginia was yet another notch on the preverbal bedpost marking his competition dominance. Now, Daniel Woods, age 20, has announced his engagement to Courtney Sanders from Nashville, TN.
This shocking announcement came directly from Daniel himself via a Facebook status update. The announcement sent his friends scrambling to get the answer to their question, “Are you serious?”
It seems the proposal had been a secret kept from even Daniel’s closest friends. Most sent congratulatory remarks, some shared stories, others still questioned whether or not this was another one of Daniel’s practical jokes.
After confirming with Daniel, we must announce, “Ladies. . . Daniel Woods is off the menu!”
DPM: So Daniel, who is she?
DW: Courtney Sanders aka “C-balla”
DPM: Where is she from?
DW: “Cashville”, Tennessee
DPM: She is a Tennessee girl, does that mean you are going to learn how to fry chicken?
DW: I'll eat the shit out fried chicken, but she hates it. She does however prepare the most amazing southern style thanksgiving.
DPM: Does she climb?
DW: Yeah, she’s been climbing for a little over a year she’s my ultimate motivator.
DPM: How hard?
DW: She putting down 8’s in the gym and she did a 12b route after only climbing six months. She is making her way outside.
DPM: Where did you meet her?
DW: Ha-ha-ha on Facebook! Then I randomly flew to Tennessee to meet her.

DW: It will be a year in March.
DPM: How did you propose? Give us the dirt!
DW: I was really unprepared, but I got down on one knee at Flagstaff Mtn. in Boulder
DPM: Is The North Face going to make you a tux for the wedding?
DW: If The North Face sponsored my wedding, I’d wear ‘the shit out of’ a pinstriped “Never Stop Exploring” North Face tux!
DPM: Would it have fur on the collar?
DW: Uhhhhhh, I don’t think I can pull of fur, unless it’s a hood.
DPM: What makes her that special girl?
DW: Her southern ass. (joking)
DPM: Do you guys live together?
DW: You’re not supposed to live together before your married. (joking?)
DPM: How do you think getting married is going to affect your ability to perform as an athlete?
DW: I'll probably end up climbing harder; my breakthrough has been since I have met her.
DPM: Who is going to do the laundry?
DW: I've tried to do laundry but failed, so she handles that business. I can do dishes…with gloves!
