Today is the kick off for the 2013 Arnold Sports Festival. Last fall, Bigg and I decided we’d take it in. I’ve never been and he’s had a blast at past events. When he got his invite to the Iceman, we postponed the Arnold visit until next year since we’ll already be gone for that. Of course there’s a lot of crazy at the Arnold but that’s fun. The Strongman competition will be very interesting to see if Brian Shaw is back 100% after his issues during the off-season. We’ll see if Misha comes back stronger and harder after a couple of surprising struggles at last years World’s contest. It should be a great contest. Sending strong thoughts for a great and injury free weekend.
The Highland Games make their debut at the Festival this weekend which is very exciting. The top 8 Pro’s in the country will be there along with two of the best women doing a demonstration on Saturday (I believe it’s Saturday.) The weather looks to be very wintery for these throwers but these guys are Pro’s. I’m sure if little ‘ol us can throw all day in the pouring rain, 8 men can withstand a little winter. And I guess I equate the word “Top Pro Highland Games competitor” to “Tough MoFo’s.” Also wishing them solid footing and strong throws on Sunday.
In honor of the weekend, here’s Arnold. At his best and folks, his best was as best as best gets. Truth.
Enjoy the weekend.
I saw a woman wearing a sweatshirt with Guess on it. I said, Thyroid problem?
