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?

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.
