Wasn't he a light heavyweight.

Thinking back, I believe you're right.  Perhaps I remember a smallish frame. Black dude.

    Vinnie's wife, Sheila, is one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet.  She has never waived in her support of Vinnie.  I admire that in any spouse.  My wife doesn't like to see me fight, but she still supports me, even when I fight Brazilians (she is from Brasil).

   The best Craig did in the open Mr. O was 13th.  How Jonnie Jackson beats him still puzzles me, especially when JJ is not spot on 100%.  I thought you needed wheels to get on stage.  Craig even has calves.

   If one were to go down the list and examine year by year, just who won the Mr. NJ,  it would be quite the list.  Then, if you took that list and discovered how many guys who won the Mr. NJ  also won the Jr. USA and Jr. Nationals and then the USA and Nationals, it would be quite the testament to NJ bodybuilding. 
   One might have to concede that Rich Gaspari, having taken 2nd place at the Mr. O, was the most successful NJ bodybuilder.

     Back in the day, even the top 15 at the USA and Nationals was an incredible placing.  It was no coincidence that the guys who won their class at The Nationals were almost always immediately competitive as pros.  Did Mattarazzo and DeMayo dramatically change once they became pros? I didn't see too much of that.  When Levrone walked on stage at the Jr. USA or Jr. Nationals, did anyone have a doubt where he was soon heading?
    What I saw was guys committed to grueling workouts, each and every day, in small gyms that you could barely find, that had no carpets, no real air conditioning, dust filled machines, with very few "posers."  This was not limited to NJ.  California was producing mega tatlents as well.  Florida guys seemed to just party way too much and in my opinion, never really put it together for very long.
    I remember Mike Quinn livid over the obviously mistaken placing of his good friend at a show in Hackensack (I think it was the East Coast).  Quinn called out all the judges for a fight, including, and especially Maz Ali and Steve Weinberger.  Quinn told them he woudl be outside in the front waiting to personaly fight them.  I must admit, the excitement got to me and I waited outside to see it all unfold.  Let's just say that apparently, Bergen County Tech High School has a back door exit.

great story
thanks for sharing these Harley

ive always heard Weinberger is nothing but a bully

apparently he backed down when Nasser challenged him to a fight in the mid 90's- know anything about that?

    I met Mike Quinn several times and he was very nice.  He guest posed at a show in the late 80's and was selling autographs and even posters.  I bought a black and white poster and asked him to sign it to me.  He did so very graciously and we spoke.
    I then went over to the Shawn Ray table and asked him, "If I buy a poster (yes, he too had a poster for sale) will you sign it for me?"  He said, "no."  I didn't buy the poster.
    I met Jim Quinn at Rutgers College in New Brunswick at the Jr. USA I think and we spoke for awhile.  I told him I was actualy attending Rutgers College and he told me to earn my degree and that bodybuilding was not something anyone should pursue on a professional level (not that I was).  He was very intent on telling me the value of staying in school and that there woudl always be time for the gym, but not to make it a career.

hahaha
yet another story confirming Shawn Ray the arrogant douchebag prima donna!
