Remember these guys? Other than Miss Piggy slutting it up for Kermit, they were the best part of The Muppet Show. Even though I was a little too old to be watching this stuff (so my parents thought) I would spend the entire half hour hoping these two would pop in. So, I guess sarcasm was instilled early in my mind as funny.
Which is why all this political trolling on the internet these days is funny to me. Bigg and I were talking about it last night and he made a good point I hadn’t thought of. These candidates? The ones you (errrr, trolls rather) are staunchly defending (to the death it seems)? They don’t give a shit about you. At all. Oh sure, either one can come to your hometown and tell you that they your little space in the world is all they think about as they pick up die hard followers along the way. But they don’t care. At all. Sorry.
Why do you follow people, people? Follow ideas. Ideals. Values (or lack of if that’s your thing.) Think of your strength training. Do you follow a certain person or a training method? The Trolls on the strength side of life are equally humorous to me. People seriously spend hours getting other people they don’t know pissed off because it’s fun? Huh.
Anyways, we’re only at the beginning of this political trolling fun and I’ve just missed some so I need to catch up.
By the way? Obama sucks and Romney is a liar.
And now here’s something we think you’ll really like:

At tosabarbell, I build relationships cultivated in a strength and learning environment. There is no 12 week magic pill program to strength but rather a lifetime commitment to be the very best and most useful human you can be.
tosabarbell is a private, home grown gym with three lifting platforms; squat rack; prowlers; throwing implements; bars, bumpers and everything else needed for an effective strength and conditioning program. Straightforward barbell programming including the Olympic lifts; sound (read: not fancy bullshit) diet advance for weight gain or loss; and strong coaching will ensure you will meet your goals such as becoming stronger, more explosive, and better conditioned.
I have been coaching teams and athletes for over 30 years. I grew up participating in various sports at various levels but was always drawn to those that require strength training. I have multiple local, national, and world records in the sports of Weightlifting and Highland Games Heavy Events as well as a combined total of 5 World Championships. My 5 years of training and coaching under Mark Rippetoe provided a wide range of influence from some of the top strength & conditioning and throwing coaches in the country. I will strongly encourage tosabarbell athletes to compete (and prepare you to do so.) However, tosabarbell is also for those who wish to be stronger and go through life feeling better.

This blog will be a mixture of strength notes, coaching and nutrition tips, personal shit; bacon delicacies, and a whole lot of fun.
