I see when and a lot of the older bodybuilders usually at Muscle Beach.

Very cool and respectful...

3  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / 2014 Olympia - Dexter Jackson Top Five! on: July 21, 2014, 11:35:46 PM

Talking to Dexter Jackson at the NPC Los Angeles championships this past Saturday, and he tells me he is 15 pounds heavier than he was during the same time last year, and that don't think he won't place in the top five this year at the 2014 Olympia.  It just may be.

After the NPC USA's are over, sometime in early August, it will be time to make our yearly Olympia predictions!


Dexter is here with Chris Cormier, who probably, if many of you don't know, one of the very first bodybuilders I met 20+ years ago.

Matt Porter is getting ready for the 2014 NPC USAs and just may surprise us all in Vegas - here are some pics give to me by Matt.

Gotta admit that Cali Muscle was huge on stage, and dwarfed all the other competitors.  Congratulations on your win!

I always get impressed with a competitor that can vacuum pack their midsection like this, and not too many do in competitions.  Handai Saldana did, and wowed the audience at the 2014 NPC Los Angeles champions.   For a light heavyweight novice, not bad at all.

On Wednesday, UNRWA officials found some 20 missiles in a vacant school. A day later it released a statement strongly condemning “the group or groups responsible for placing the weapons in one of its installations. This is a flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law,” the statement read. UNRWA immediately convened an inquiry to investigate the incident, Gunness said. “All existing evidence will be handed over by UNRWA to the investigation, which can commence as soon as hostilities in Gaza are over.” Israel has requested the UN release photos of the rockets. Officials plan to disseminate these images to bolster its assertion that Hamas is hiding missiles in schools, diplomatic sources said Friday.  But UNRWA is currently refusing to disclose any photos, arguing that “any photographic material” is evidence needed for UNRWA’s evidence. “We will keep relevant players informed about the investigation,” Gunness said.

Sad - they find the missiles at the school, yet may have given them back to Hamas.  Come on.

The Palestinian people are a conquered nation.  Let Israel finish them off and get the fuck over it.  It's happened time and again throughout history and it will happen time and again in the future.

No. Sadly, the Palestinian people want peace. Most of them do. But Hamas does not, and uses them and doesnt care about them.  Very sad.  No one wants missles coming to them, either way.  But Hamas needed this, because the Arab world was slowly stopping to give them money, and worse - Egypt doesnt want anything to do with them, as well as many other Arab nations.

What is not noted here is that Israel and Egypt are working together.  At the same time Israel responded to Hamas' rejection of the cease fire, Egypt closed all borders and illegal tunnel activity on their end too.

And yes, remember that 13 Israeli soldiers died overnight trying to stop this missile attacks, while Hamas fires from schools, mosques and hospitals.  Not an easy fight

Only savage, uncivilized beasts could cheer the deaths of little children, and the wholesale slaughter of their fellow man.

http://scgnews.com/cnn-confirms-israelis-cheer-as-civilians-are-murdered-in-gaza-video


What a crackpot video by an unknown propaganda site.

How about sitting in your backyard when you see a missile coming right at you and your kids, coming to your kids school - for the last weeks weeks.  How about Israel warning over and over again stop the missles aiming at 2 million people and Hamas doesnt? 

And the worst.  How about Israel accepting a ceasefire and Hamas said no - we want you to attack us so we can get money by showing images of children getting killed and hurt.

How about the UN expressing outrage over Hamas putting 20+ missiles in their school that is supposed to take care of children.

Remember, you are dealing with Hamas, whose sole purposes is to destroy Israel.  How you forget that so easily sitting in your Canadian home where it is safe, not worried about a missile hitting you in your backyard.

Lets put a terrorist organization about a mile from you, and lets let them fire a missle to you whenever they want.  They may hit you, they may not - I guess you are ok with it.

I am not.



The goal is not to hurt children, but to stop the missles.. and yep, the tunnels that Hamas dug to infiltrate Israel instead of using the money to help their people.  Remember, they don't care about the Palestinians at all. They care about their agenda.

Once you understand that no matter what you do, peace is not their agenda.

If you are competing, you care.  You work hard, you win a title. Awesome.

Yes, in the grand scheme of life and balance, the titles of anything doesnt matter.

But still impressive in the bb community

RON, Do you  have any idea who could be in the top five of each event this year? Any contestant list published yet?

And will you be covering the LA Contest the week before?

See you there (USA).

I will be at the LA Championships this Saturday in Culver City (Covering it for Bodybuilding.com / NPC News).

As for me who could be in the top five, we rarely get the list, sometimes a few days out, so until we actually see them the day of check-ins (not exactly sure).

Of course, from various sources and people emailing me, we know some of the favorites coming into it

Heading down to Vegas for the NPC USAs! Always one of my favorite pro qualifiers, and should be cool to see which NPC competitors turn pro in Vegas.  Be there from Thursday to Sunday!

15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Phil Heath - I'm a fan of Phil - sorry Getbig! on: July 14, 2014, 10:51:47 PM
I think a lot of people, myself included, like Phil Heath.  He is a respected king of bodybuilding right now, treats his fans well, talks to them, tweets and responds back, and tries hard to portray himself as how he would want to be when he wasn't on the top.  

That being said - he is the #1 bodybuilder in the world and the three time champion coming into the 50th anniversary of the O, where only a few contenders can try and dethrone him. He talked to talk, and walks to walk.

I am certainly thinking of making some very special stars right now...

But give me some ideas for Method101 ...

Stars are too valuable...

Perhaps some Unhappy faces... or a Meltdown icon

I went to Miami because of D-Wade and CB. We made sacrifices to keep UD. I loved becoming a big bro to Rio. I believed we could do something magical if we came together. And that’s exactly what we did! The hardest thing to leave is what I built with those guys.

Now he has a family and wants to raise them in his hometown.  

Good for Cleveland, good for the NBA, and he won't be just one of the guys there.
