I first noticed Pruitt Taylor Vince when I rented Heavy back in the mid-’90s. I remember having an AOL account and I created a whole webpage dedicated to my analysis of that film. I also remember constantly refreshing my page hoping to see my stat counter explode with visitors, but, alas, I made 327 visits to it (out of 330 total). I wanted the world to know just how awesome the movie was.
I remember linking it to the Bears Mailing List and I ended up forcing my film analysis on to an unsuspecting Mr. Les K. Wright (editor of The Bear Book 1 & 2 and founder of The Bear History Project). I was still new to the world of “bears” and Mr. Wright was very patient with my billions of questions and overeagerness. He was very kind to my pompous film analysis of Heavy. (If I could find it, I’d repost it here.) But my love for that film pretty much equaled my intense attraction toward its chubby lead actor.
Anyway, all that rambling just so we could segue into today’s Shirtless Saturday model: Pruitt Taylor Vince. I remember giggling like a giddy little girl when I finally saw him shirtless in Captivity. Thanks to Tumblr’s moviechubs, he made me aware that just a decade and four years ago, PTV already got shirtless. I still couldn’t believe that I missed it.
Summer has got to be my favorite season. It’s the time where we get to see big men practically being naked, especially on the beaches and pools. Thankfully, there are a handful of blogs and photo sites dedicated to men in all of their summer wear glory. The following are just some of my favorites from Speedo Dads:
And now for some variety: big bear firefighters in a mankini, cute chubby bear in a tight-fitting lycra wrestling singlet, big bear hulking out in his speedos, and a soaking wet smooth chub in a triathlon of sorts…

Man, this is what I get for not being thorough with my gossip news. Apparently, a few months ago, a video about a “handicapped” swimming race between my favorite big bear, Warren Sapp, and Michael Phelps has been floating about. The top video is an exclusive, as we get to hear Young Jeezy put money on Warren. I can’t blame him as Warren had a half-pool headstart on Phelps. I, too, would have dropped big coin on Warren.
Other than that, I have finally seen Mr. Warren Sapp in all of his shirtless glory. Wow. Just wow.
Paul Teutul, Sr. (massive daddy musclebear of “American Chopper”) walks shirtless then dives and swims in a pool. It’s quite possibly one of the most sexiest moments ever. What can I say? I have simple tastes. ^_^
Dan Lauria has always been that archetypal daddy bear figure that I tend to love. He is stocky and beefy and possesses a look that tells you that he’s a mean sonuvabitch, yet at the same time, he’s also a gentle teddy bear of a man. I’ve had so many fantasies of being his son every time I watched The Wonder Years (man, if I were Kevin, the voiceover and series itself would have strayed off to the worst, lol). Bob Hoskins is another prime example of one daddy who owns such a “look.” And just like Bob, I am completely enamored by Mr. Lauria’s sexy furry body. Those arms just drive me crazy.

* ANSWER: Dan Lauria’s amazingly hot bearish body. My Cock-a-Doodle Dooley can’t handle such hotness.
