Amazing Goonish Set Of Gerard Benderoth Photos

Ah, Bullneck, how I envy thee, let me count the ways…  Well, Bullneck has finally achieved his dream and met up with the one and only Gerard Benderoth.  And the generous Bullneck has shared with us jaw-droppingly awesome hiqh-quality photos of this spectacular behemoth.  Seriously, this is an amazing gift.  He has truly captured the magnificent beauty of this strongman.

Goonday Moonday: Uh-Oh, Sounds Like Somebody’s Got A Case Of The Mondays

[EDIT: Photos have been deleted as requested by the owner of the photos.  Just check out Joe Powell Photography’s SmugMug photo site for the photos.]

I tend to give myself a blog break on Sundays and Mondays.  But it looks like I’m gonna be forced to post something on Mondays, as I seemed to have gotten a case of the Moondays — or in this case, Goonday Moondays.  (Need a refresher on what a goon is?)  Also, I have been lax and inconsiderate in not adding the great Bullneck in my “Bear Blog” links.  So this new regular post is dedicated to the expert of all things “bullgoon”…

Also, if you guys have some clever pun that I can use on Sundays, feel free to drop me a line.  Though part of me is hoping to high heaven that you don’t encourage me.  I’d like to take some break from da bears from time to time…  ^_^

So what’s the best way to start Goonday Moonday?  How about with some unauthorized usage of Gerard Benderoth photographs “borrowed” from Joe Powell Photography’s SmugMug photo site (Strongman Competition page)?  I could just link you guys to Mr. Powell’s photo site, but I just have to have images in every blog post I make.  So enjoy and partake in my evil activity before Gerard Benderoth comes crashing down my door then arrests me for such illegal acts…  Hmm…  On second thought…

Shirtless Saturday: Wolverine, Strongman Edition (Brad Dunn)

brad-dunn-wolverine-03

Wolverine is a comic book superhero who’s definitely bearish in my opinion.  He’s furry, he’s stocky, and endowed with bulging muscles.  As much as I love Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of Wolverine, he just did not have the physique I was personally hoping for.  So on Shirtless Saturday, here is a prime example of a perfect Wolverine physique: strongman Brad Dunn.  I feel like turning Salt N Pepa on y’all on while rapping, “A body like Brad Dunn with a Jackman’s (thespian) skill”…

A big “Thank You” to BassBoom of Real Thick Yahoo Group for introducing me to this spectacular woofy strongman…

To end this post, here is a related, yet random, Shirtless Saturday/BearFic crossover…  Where the Strongest Men and the Marvel Universe collide…

C’mon.  You know you like it down there!

Our hero, Wolverine, already has a handful of the bullgoonish Rhino, also faces the following villainous shirtless behemoths…

Gerard Benderoth & Dan Ford: Shirtless & Kilted Strongmen

Just browsing through my hard drive and found out that I had more shirtless photos of the ever-massive bullgoon, Gerard Benderoth.  And as a bonus, Dan Ford is in it as well.

Gerard Benderoth: Mo Rocca Interviews An American Strongman

Majored in art in college.  Loves painting.  Enjoys sewing and knitting.  Loves dance movies, especially Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.

When I wrote those things, would you even think that these are interests and passions of a strongman?

[vodpod id=Groupvideo.1566558&w=425&h=350&fv=videoId%3D1341023667%26playerId%3D271529994%26viewerSecureGatewayURL%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fconsole.brightcove.com%2Fservices%2Famfgateway%26servicesURL%3Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fservices.brightcove.com%2Fservices%26cdnURL%3Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fadmin.brightcove.com%26domain%3Dembed%26autoStart%3Dfalse%26]
Direct link to that interview can be found here

Bullgoon-loving internet superstar, Bullneck, has just updated me about a fantastic video interview piece of Gerard Benderoth by ex-Daily Show correspondent, Mo Rocca.  Bullneck has also posted about this in his LiveJournal (which reminded me that I have been very lax with updating and checking out my very own LiveJournal account).  And I just have to shout out a huge “Thank you!” to Bullneck for thinking about me.  He’s such a super and smart guy and any of you bullgoons out there will be lucky enough to snatch this smart and witty young man.  I wholly endorse him.  🙂

As for the video, it was wholly unexpected.  I was expecting a rough and gruff personality, but through such intimidating exterior, he’s completely a “teddy bear” on the inside.

*begins sudden out from left field rant*

And as a lesson to any of you homophobic “bearish guys” out there, take a lesson from Big Benderoth himself as he talked about “confidence.”  If you can’t handle any gay references or insinuations, then there’s something wrong with your level of confidence.

*ends sudden out from left field rant*

Anyway, I really love the video and I love how Benderoth is such a completely nice guy.  I’ve also been a fan of Mo Rocca and he definitely did a great piece with this one.

Shirtless Saturday: Various Strongmen In All Manners Of Undress

Looks like a Fishbone song (“Sunless Saturday“) has inspired me to create this particular Saturday theme: “Shirtless Saturday”…

So on this Shirtless Saturday, we find a couple of shirtless behemoths involved in the wonderful world of Strength Athletics, more popularly known as Strongman Competitions…

I found most of these photos from a long-running blog that I just recently uncovered: Mature & Bear Men Hideaway (it has a plethora of full frontals, so this blog is NSFW).  The author tends to prefer the muscular and “smaller” (subjective, of course) bears while I tend to get attracted to the “bigger” and “chubbier” types…

Ah, yes, the bullgoon model, Gerard Benderoth, in all his bulky & sweaty glory

The thick, wide, & massive Ukranian, Vasyl Virastyuk

*boing* That’s right, I went there.  -_^
I mean, c’mon, Grant Higa and Matty Parkes?  Woof-dee daisy!

HELP!  Who are these beautiful massive men (especially the big bear on the right)?

Irek Kuras is in need of a clean up…  Any volunteers?

HELP AGAIN!  Vladimir Kalinichenko is unfortunately clothed in the photo,
but who are the other three (especially the big bear on the right)?

As for the final two photos, I know that the strongman on the very right is Alexander Pekanov.  But, dear Lord, who is that handsome furry bear on the very left?  *boing boing* indeed!  -_^
