Monday Bacon: Not Summer

Minnesota Wild shared a link.
After a summer filled with excitement, we’re ready to drop the puck! “

Really, the only thing I have to say aboot the NHL Lockout is F.U. All of them. The ONE year I finally get the NHL network and these douchenozzles decide not to play. Fine. You’re back. Wa.Hoo.
The problem I have is that all over the interwebz, the NHL and individual teams are pretending that we’re not 2/3’s into the season. As demonstrated by the above Facebook status by the Minnesota Wild. After a summer filled with…F.U. It’s January 21st. Summer has been over for quite a while. We all know it. The fact that you want to pretend something different and sell it to us is something we get quite enough from our current President, thankuverymuch. F.U.
The icing on the cake was while we were glancing at the Bruins/Rangers game and the goalie save was instantly labeled, “the save of the season.” Again, F.U. The season is about 20 minutes old. We all know it, just because you don’t want to admit it doesn’t make it reality.
Fuckin El.
We’ve been enjoying the #1 Gophers hockey team this season. So ya, hockey never left. But one last time NHL…F.U.
I hope I can do a better job than Mr. Bettman.

About tosabarbell

For training opportunities at tosabarbell, call or text Juli at 320-296-9313. e-mail to 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. Matt WanAt is a retired Professional Strongman who competed frequently with Strongman Champions League in Europe. He played a year of D1 football with Iowa before concentrating on his Chemical Engineering degree in Iowa City. He is a native of Wauwatosa and still remains a staunch supporter of Tosa East. This blog will be a mixture of strength notes, coaching and nutrition tips, personal shit; bacon delicacies, and a whole lot of fun.
