BigOfficerBear: The Big Boss Man Version 2.0

The Big Boss ManThe Big Boss Man was definitely one of my favorite pro-wrestlers growing up as a teenager. He was a musclechub before I had any idea what a musclechub was. Others would probably just call him a “chub,” and that’s okay.

To me, he was still a “bear” — “bear” being an umbrella term to describe large men. Honestly, if I could rewind time, I would have just started a blog called “Large Men.”

However, that just sounded so plain. And the term “bears” made my inner hipster extremely happy.

The Big Boss Man (real name: Ray Traylor) is not in this world any longer. However, he had made my teenage years very exciting (I had a very boring teen life). He was literally an exciting figure: he was a cocky heel and that sky blue police uniform made him an imposing figure that fulfilled my fantasies. And don’t get me started when he started sweating…

Fast-forward 32 years later. I was just browsing through YouTube when I was recommended by YouTube’s algorithm to watch a video titled “Wresting BIG Officer Bear” (you can only watch this video in YouTube):

Suddenly, I was whisked away to my teenage years. This BigOfficerBear brought back fond memories of The Big Boss Man (the “heel version” of course). That video was not a short clip, but an actual full match. Granted he completely dominated the whole match but it was still glorious to watch it nevertheless.

BigOfficerBear ScreenshotI wanted more and I found out that he has a website: bigofficerbear.com. Wow, he has videos from BDSM, wrestling, squashing, and smothering. I was a bit disappointed that he only has one video where he got dominated. But beggars can’t be choosers! I mean, it’s BIG OFFICER BEAR! The name says it all.

BigOfficerBear 02What’s even cooler is that he doesn’t role-play just a police officer. He also cosplays as Roadhog!

(As an aside, check out my numerous Tumblr blog posts on Roadhog; by the way, I am Gizmo72 on Overwatch PC. Not surprisingly, my main character is Junkrat.)

BigOfficerBear as Roadhog

Anyway, needless to say, this site is for the 18+ and over crowd. I try my best to keep my blog PG-13, but based on what the majority thinks of my blog, I am Rated XXX. So, once in awhile, let us post something that is actually Rated XXX. 😉

BearMythology Version 4.0

3 Bears and Chubs

It appears that it’s been about 6 years and 6 months since I last posted on WordPress. It will be awhile as I try to get used to things. It took me some time updating the new look of this blog. I think that I like it as I plan on posting in bulk.

The 3 bears and chubs you see on the top is representative of the bearish/chubby types I like. Not a single white bear? Don’t worry, we will be discussing them. Trust me, I am not partaking in the white genocide…

…Yes, I’m older, perhaps a little bitter, and definitely sarcastic; but I still have a sense of humor.

Welcome aboard to BearMythology Version 4.0.

 

The Many Woofy Faces Of Australian Weightlifter, Damon Kelly

BOOM! POW! BOOM! That’s pretty much the only way I could verbalize my instant thoughts when I first saw this Australian weightlifter.  His name is Damon Kelly and when I quickly did some thorough research (lol), I noticed that for a weightlifter, he’s quite stylish, to the point that I might even call him a “hipster” (or “bipster” for “bear hipster”).  Let me lay out the evidence, and you be the judge… [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Shirtless Saturday: Phil Hickerson As PY Chu Hi

Here’s an old-school Shirtless Saturday post.   Phil Hickerson is a wrestler I discovered a few years ago thanks to the classic pro-wrestling matches shown on ESPN.  I missed out on his younger and furrier persona, so I just knew him as his villainous Japanese counterpart, PY Chu Hi. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

MMA Fighter Roy Nelson Is Downloadable

Seriously, wouldn’t that be amazing?  Who wouldn’t want to have a “Weird Science” world where we could just “download” any (and all) of our bear/chub/daddy fantasies in physical form?  Though it might not be a reality, video games are acceptable substitutions as CG graphics are quickly becoming realistic as possible… [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Classic Goonday Moonday: Pure Strength Strongmen Of 1989

Twenty-two years ago, I was in high school and still oblivious to the world of strongmen competitions.  So thank goodness for YouTube.  It has become a rich video archive of classic strongmen competitions.  This one in particular is called “Pure Strength” (the 1989 episode). HITStrongman posted the whole event in 7 parts. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Super Shirtless Saturday: Jock Samson

Jock Samson is one of my current intense obsessions.   He’s amazingly agile, cocky, and he always strips off his wrestling singlet, revealing his magnificent and gorgeous build.  I’m sure I will be posting more about him, but I’d like to remain focused for a moment and let’s discuss his shirtless appearances, shall we? [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Super Shirtless Saturday: Unknown Pro-Wrestler Pharaoh

One of my favorite pro-wrestling photo blogs is Wrestling Great.  There’s not a lot of big guys (at least with my definition of “big” is); but for the ones who do show up are simply “great” to behold.  One of my finds is a pro-wrestler who dons a pharaoh costume.  Unfortunately, I have no clue as to who he is and I’m begging any wrestling expert out there to provide us with the 411. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Super Shirtless Saturday: Bulldozer

If you want to see old-school musclechub wrestlers, then the indy circuit is the place to be.  Case in point: the masked chubby known as “Bulldozer”… [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Super Shirtless Saturday: “The Monster” Malachi

Why is this “Super Shirtless Saturday”?  Because I will be posting a handful of shirtless pro-wrestlers today and what better way to honor their athleticism and theatrical skills by describing them as “super”?

After seeing the super musclechub, Mark Henry, in his sexy hot tub video, let’s get to meet a beastly warrior who sports one of the coolest beards around: “The Monster” Malachi. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Super Shirtless Saturday: Mark Henry In Red Speedos

The BearMythology look has been updated again by your finicky and oft-absent blogger.  Also, based on numerous suggestions, I will finally get with the 21st Century and start placing “Continue Reading” links on every post for easier reading consumption…

Anyway, my great friend, GE, sent me a link to a video that gave me a heart attack (I wonder how many heart attacks I’ve had during the course of this blog’s lifespan?): it is a video of pro-wrestler, Mark Henry, wearing only skimpy bright red speedos!  Seriously, why can’t he wrestle with this type of outfit?! [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Casey Hampton: HOLY *Insert Blubbering Sounds* MOLEY!

Dear ESPN Magazine: OMG.  Thank you!

I was pretty harsh on ESPN Magazine’s 2010’s “The Body Issue” when Steven Holcomb’s godly physique was digitally altered.  However, thanks to GE, he pinpointed me to ESPN Magazine’s “The Body Issue 2009: Battle Scars” which featured a close-up of Casey Hampton’s magnificent belly.  Needless to say, seeing an almost-nude image of Mr. Hampton is an excellent way to win someone like me over — even though this was shot a year before the Holcomb-Gate fiasco.  ^___^

Here is the link to the Flash Gallery of “The Body Issue 2009: Battle Scars”:

I can’t seem to embed this ESPN video, but you can briefly see him in an interview with all of the athletes — including Randy Couture — involved in that photo shoot.

Unfortunately, the Pittsburgh Steelers did not win the SuperBowl this year, so we’re gonna miss out on seeing a shirtless Casey Hampton at a SuperBowl Parade…  🙁

The Case Against The Increased Exposure Of Armpits In The NFL

The NFL is currently in a sticky bind trying to create a balanced and fair “harsh penalty” for players who would flagrantly hit and intentionally harm other players [ESPN].  I have been following this news and it basically resembles any workplace where management has no clue whatsoever what their employees would go through in their respective jobs.  A frustrated defensive player who is being forced to make a split-second decision about the safety of his opponent is no different from any corporate America employee being told by management what to do when they haven’t even experienced their employees’ jobs firsthand at all.

In short, a sure-fire way to have a disgruntled employee is to make his or her job difficult.  That’s pretty much the case with any human interactions, whether it be in sports, work, school, and, well, anything else.

However interesting that may be (lol), I am far more concerned with a much sinister and heinous argument that just might bring the NFL to even lower depths: people complaining about the increased exposure of armpits on the football field!

Stephen Peterman

Paul Lukas has a hilarious commentary in his “Uni Watch” segment in ESPN.com called “Simply stated, these jerseys are the pits”:

Of course, being an Armpit Aficionado I am completely against his rally cry against the increased exposure of armpits in the NFL.  To combat this, I will selectively choose some of Mr. Lukas’ points so that I could easily contradict him.

Let us begin our battle of “pits,” shall we?

But some players have been pushing the sleeveless style past the limits of visual propriety. For years, the poster child for this look has been Chris Hovan, who’s basically had his jersey tailored like a tank top, revealing more of his body than Uni Watch (or, most likely, anyone) wants to see.

Au contraire, Pepe Le Pew.  The NFL is stacked to the brim with magnificent and imposing behemoths whose muscular and stocky builds are completely encumbered by needless jerseys, shoulder pads, and helmets.  These men are our living mythical giants who, on any given Sunday, push their strengths and endurance to the limits for our entertainment.  They are the wonders of our modern age, gladiators of a brutal sport, and the glue that binds people together as well as a polarizer of cities & communities.  That being said, it would be totally awesome if football players were just shirtless.  So, yes, there are people out there who actually respect and admire the human form.  If a football player like Chris Hovan tailors his jersey like a tanktop, then that’s just a bonus for us fans and non-fans alike.  Yes, there are people out there who appreciate Hovan’s armpits.  As much as you probably enjoy watching the Lingerie Football League.

3. Ixnay on the exflay. Tired of the recent trend of players flexing like bodybuilders? That’s yet another byproduct of the faux sleeves. Wouldn’t be happening if the players’ upper arms were covered.

Seriously?  Your number 3 reason for banning exposed armpits is because it would cause more football players to flex their muscles?  And let’s just say that it’s true that all men in the world who wear sleeveless shirts severely suffer from Acute-Muscle-Flexing-Syndrome-Because-I’m-Wearing-A-Wifebeater, then what exactly is wrong with that?  Men, especially men of the bigger variety, have the right to be proud of their bodies and strength.  Of course there is a time and place to do so, in regards to sportsmanship versus showmanship, but please don’t blame the sleeveless jersey for causing men’s inherent desire to display their Alpha Maleness.

Okay.  Now that I have conveniently avoided responding to Mr. Lukas’ finer & compelling points, let me pleasantly end my needless rant with a cavalcade of photos of Chris Hovan’s magnificent and spectacular armpits…

And to end on a finer rose-scented note, here is the Hovan family…  Wow.  I just love this image.

Radu “Valahu” Georgescu: Massive Romanian Arm Wrestler

Rick Zumwalt’s character “Bull Hurley” has been a major factor and influence in my realization that I was attracted towards big and burly men.  His larger-than-life portrayal of a very intimidating and powerful arm wrestler is forever embedded in my memory: the red tanktop, the bald head, the thick & sweaty biceps, the perfect goatee, and his aggressively cocky demeanor were the physical features and personality traits that fueled my imagination and “sexual awakening,” if you will.

Well, today, I’d like to introduce to you Mr. Radu “Valahu” Georgescu or as I’d like to think of him as The Romanian Bull Hurley Version 2.0.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.  Rick Zumwalt may not be physically in this world anymore, but there will be people (from past, present, and future) who will always possess such amazingly similar traits.  Radu may not be bald nor possess a goatee, but what a trade-off with that spectacular beard!  Jury’s still out with the bandanas though…

Those screenshots from the collage were taken from this YouTube video:

And speaking of my coincidental Bull Hurley comparison, here is Hurley wearing a yellow tanktop and Radu wearing a yellow shirt!  OMG like that is so true!

The truth behind who had truly framed Roger Rabbit...

Shirtless Saturday: Sedrick Ellis (Life Magazine’s Portrait Session)

Once upon a time, when this blogger used to actually blog on a regular basis, he had put up a “Shirtless Saturday” post about a massive lineman for the New Orleans Saints, Sedrick Ellis.  After a year and a few months later, he found out that LIFE Magazine did a photo shoot of him (unfortunately, their search engine is not too friendly; and a way to get to just 1 of his photo shoot is by going to this url).  And I am begging all of the photo sleuths out there who could direct us to his Portrait Session as it would be greatly appreciated.

Anyway, let us now have the photos do the talking, for I am downright speechless…

He’s not shirtless in this video, but you can just see the majestic wonder of his ungodly physique as his massive bulk attempts to escape the confines of his tight-fitting shirt…

Pablo Sandoval: “Kung-Fu Panda”

Pablo Sandoval is a baseball player for the San Francisco Giants who has quite an apt nickname of “Kung-Fu Panda” (or “Pandoval”).  He got this nickname for being a speedy husky athlete.  Tonight is the National League Playoffs between the Giants and the Philadelphia Phillies.  Unfortunately, Pablo is benched for tonight’s game and I’m not sure if he’s playing through the rest of the playoffs.

Here’s an adorable video of Pablo being interviewed by FOX’s Chris Rose:

Okay, I just could not resist posting this...

Okay, before you guys and gals get mad at me for posting that animated gif, I just have this ridiculous fascination with people tripping.  Karma has rained down her vengeance upon me because I now have weak legs.  Serves me right, I suppose.  Still, I can’t stop laughing at the cuteness of the Kung-Fu Panda tripping — plus, seeing his thick body in full-speed action before the fall is worth the price of admission…  😛

Pablo Sandoval bear hugs Andres Torres... DAAAWWWW!

But, seriously, here are more photos of the handsome Pablo Sandoval…

And, finally, I really have no other thoughts about these final two photos…  😛

And, after all that, I must inject some personal opinion to end this: GO PHILLIES! (and I’m a Yankees fan)…  😉

Dear ESPN Magazine: Please Don’t Digitally Alter People’s Bodies In Your 2010’s “The Body Issue” Edition

A good friend of mine emailed me this photo and it’s quite possibly one of the most amazing things I’ve seen all year.  It’s a semi-nude photo of the Captain of the United States’ bobsledding team, Steven Holcomb.  I am not quite sure where this photo was originally taken from, but when I checked out my ESPN Magazine’s digital edition, I noticed a big “change” that did not sit too well for me…

I am just glad that someone released that original breathtaking photo.  Anyway, I just want to send a short email to ESPN Magazine right here…

Dear ESPN Magazine,

Why would you digitally manipulate someone’s physique in your yearly edition of “The Body Issue”?  Does not that defeat the very purpose of you displaying the naturalness of your athletes’ bodies?

Please do not do this again.  Thank you.

Sincerely,
Will
Secretary Of The League Of The Natural State Of Human Bodies Preservation

Okay, seriously, I’m not going to send that.  There are more pressing issues in the world than getting all riled up about someone’s beautiful belly getting brutally and ruthlessly butchered by way of photoshopping…  Okay, perhaps this is important to me.  😛

Anyway, here were some of my Tumblr contributions in the past about the handsome Steven Holcomb…  (And, no, I have not given up on on this blog.  Just please be patient with me.)

Strongman Warrick Brant

I once heard that “Warrick Brant” was Australian for Bear.  Or something like that.  One thing is for sure though: Warrick Brant is one gigantic monster of a man…

Amongst the many fine physical features that Mr. Brant is endowed with, it is his massive arms and biceps that lure me to his wickedly charming handsomeness.  Cases in point:

And he’s also just this big hunk of a teddy bear with a gorgeous, killer smile…

When I meant "killer," I didn't mean it literally!
Derek Poundstone and Warrick Brant

Finally, here are some “select” (well, okay, “shirtless”) videos from Warrick Brant’s YouTube Page:

You can learn more about this Aussie-tanding (somebody shoot me) Strongman by visiting his Official Site and Facebook

Tyler Labine from Control Alt Delete

Hey there!  Long time, no post.  But it’s time to rectify that.  Life and other things took over which was why I was absent for quite a long time.  Life is still pretty hectic, but I will do my best to post as much as I can.

Sedrick Ellis, Defensive Tackle for New Orleans Saints

I’ve also changed the layout of this blog and hopefully you folks would like it…
