Meh. Pick another more popular spo.... er hobby/skill set if you don't like it.

Powerlifting, Strongman, Highland Games, Olympic lifting, most of Track and Field, and a ton of other sports get nothing and have to pay out of pocket or fund raise to pursue their passions too. Heck, the USOC stipend for the best lifters in the US is only a few hundred a month, and I doubt they have as lucrative schoming prospects.

Here's a copy of Pulling John for those that haven't seen it, it's a pretty good character study Brzenk, Cyplenkov, and a few others that were in the scene at the time -

A somewhat funny unintended consequence of that whole fight was that it helped put Dapper Dan's Clothing out of business. The fight happened when Tyson was walking out of Dapper Dan's, and brought a lot of press to the store in the weeks that followed. Dapper Dan's main business was creating hip hop clothing using various haute couture trademarks, their most well known to the mainstream was probably the Eric B and Rakim tour jackets -

.

Well, a few reps for Vuitton, Gucci, and a few others saw the various things with their logos, and quickly sued the heck out of Dapper Dan's.

So, Mitch fucked both Tyson by breaking his hand, and Dan by bring the heat on the store.

is he still alive?

Yeah, he's still around. If you took the train a lot in New York sometimes you'd see him, but it's been a few years. He's still like the videos more or less, still in good shape physically.

Nah, he lost to Tyson by decision, Mike couldnt put him away. Dude had balls. Im not saying Tyson wasnt the better of the two, but you gotta respect the guys guts.


This is true, Green was tough as they come. If he could've gotten his mind right, and had a bit more power, he might've done better than advanced journey man status which is where I have him.

Fight starts about 20 min in.

Also the smack talking abilities are near unmatched -

Jacobs ladder is that the same as Jacobs inferno?

Yes, that was the European title for a bit.

Lately, I've gone through a lot of older film noir - White Heat, Asphalt Jungle, The Big Combo, and a few others.

I also ran through the 90's Tv show, "Homicide: LOTS" . Still a great show, makes me wish we had channels like Fx back then that would've let them get away white more. You can definitely see hints of The Wire and The Corner in it.
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: I spend $10 a day on food how much do you spend? on: July 27, 2014, 02:49:09 PM
$12 - 15, usually on the lower end of that.

In practice, it doesn't really happen much at all. It's more directly around contest time, so someone would just have to watch the the dosing like in bodybuilding events -

I've never really random testing.
15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Are crossfit games drug tested? on: July 27, 2014, 11:49:47 AM
Yeah, not tested. Someone asked them directly a couple of years ago, and they were like "fuck that shit" in a very round about answer.

19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Strongest Teenager in the World Signs with Animal! on: July 25, 2014, 12:00:33 PM
So why would anyone ever sign with them?

Absolutely no money in powerlifting. Most guys do it for promotion of gyms or books, also they do provide free product and shirts and stuff that might be useful or sold off. I'm not sure if they still do it, but Animal did pay a bit on sort of a commission basis, and it was only a couple of grand from what someone said.

Why dont they just give them a heroin overdose?

We'd get the politicos upset about the use of an illegal drug probably.

From a practical stand point, firing squad done Utah style is probably the most humane and cost effective. One could even probably do away with the need for human shooters by rigging a machine to actuate the triggers.

Dickerson smoked more Weider sausage than a 4th of July picnic

Could he actually be the inventor of the tricky towel?

So then a 391 bench on gear? Pretty unremarkable for a juicer don't you think?

He had a bad pec tear though, most lifters don't don't come back from them. He's only floating around at pre tear levels now, and it's been almost 8 years or so I think.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Mr Olympia 2014 - this is him on: July 24, 2014, 06:14:48 PM
They'll never give Kai the Olympia, even if he comes in at his best. They'll give him 2nd or 3rd because of the grapefruit. The IFBB, and by extension, the Weider group can't give him the title because it would signal their tacit approval of the underbelly of professional bodybuilding.

Is that vince urbank? What did he get pinched for

Bodybuilding.com writer Jason "Big Red" Cholewa, got arrested for dealing, then embarrassed them by wearing a BB.com t-shirt at his arraignment. Was persona non grata there for a while, then they allowed him back to plug his personal training business. He was good buddies with Layne -

http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=237863&highlight=big+red .

Also kept his drugs and cash stuffed in tvs and vcrs, which I remember for some reason.
