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’!]
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’!]
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’!]
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’!]
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”?
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’!]
The Edgerton Brothers’ “The Square” (Official Site) is one of my favorite films this year. I’m not even sure if it was released in the US cinemas (as this was released on 2008), but I recently caught it on DVD and it’s spectacular filmmaking at its finest. In a few words: “Australian film-noir set in the 1980s.” And you know what? It all worked fantastically. As a lover of film-noir, the Edgerton Brothers did a superb job in creating a malicious world in a small Australian town.
With my fan-gushing out of the way, the film also starred a handsome actor that made my viewing even better: Anthony Hayes. He’s a bit “smaller” for my tastes but his face, beard, furry chest, husky build, and — OMG! — that mullet! The Mullet was a character of its own and I loved it.
And on to the good stuff. It’s Shirtless Saturday, so here is the woofy Anthony Hayes in all of his shirtless and mulleted glory…
I’ve posted some snapshots of Larry The Cable Guy all dressed up as a mermaid for an upcoming TV show called “Only In America” in Tumblr. Then my good buddy, G, sent me a plethora of images of this TV show that I will make my lifelong mission to NOT miss at all in The History Channel! Whatcha waiting for? Head on over to Tampa Bay Online for more photos of the woofy Larry The Cable Guy!
I try not to be a movie snob, but I can’t help it when movies like “Vampires Suck” do well financially while films such as “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” “Kick-Ass,” and “Let Me In” do horrible business (just goes to prove that the popularity level of such geek-centric flicks are somewhat akin to gay-centric films).
Anyway, more often than not, these parody films will always include a jab or two at our larger and husky brethren. Jareb Dauplaise, for example, was unfortunately poked fun of in both “Meet The Spartans” and “Epic Movie.” But, hey, we got to see skin and no one is really twisting my arms to watch these abominations. So just go ahead and continue to give us our bears and chubs in all of their natural glory.
With that superficial rant out of my system, here’s David DeLuise getting all shirtless in “Vampires Suck.” In these screenshots, he revealed a physique molded by his dedication to “Mixed Martial Arts, Tae Bo, and Yogalates.” Okay, so, um, maybe I kinda lol’ed at that.
And you know what? I am definitely itching to watch just his scene on Blu-Ray…
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…
I’m gonna keep this short. I’m back! ^_^ (I needed that 2 month sabbatical and I believe that I’m ready to get back into this blogging thing with WordPress…)
Tumblr was the main reason I stopped this blog for a bit. It was a bit more personal/intimate and I was able to talk about other things besides bears. It also gave me a break from the drama and headache I tend to get because of the very nature of this blog. But I think I’m ready again for such — ahem — crap, so let me have ’em.
Anyway, to start this off, let me just give you guys and gals a sampling of why I focused more on Tumblr the past few days: here are the creme de la creme of the smoking hot bears of Tumblr. As it’s “Shirtless Saturday,” then that’s the type of photos you’ll find here. 😛
If there’s anybody I’m thoroughly obsessed with on Tumblr, then it is the ever-woofy and ever-adorable jambos. It’s basically criminal to be this unbelievably hot and be just 23 years old! I started BearMythology on 2000 and jambos was just 13 at the time! It just boggles my mind thinking about that. Other than that, he has a great sense of humor and he puts up with my lame attempts at online flirting. He has a wonderful heart and his eyes will truly mesmerize you. I seriously challenge you to not get instantly smitten at the sight of this handsome bear…
Christmasonthemoon (Moony, for short) is someone I haven’t really met offline or on. He’s this young kid who has completely accepted his sexuality and does not dwell on it at all. I have a lot to learn from this young lad, and he’s not aware of how I really see him as my hero. He also wants to pursue writing which made me “love” him further. Thanks to him, I’m about to start on another venture which involves writing fiction (so that should be fun). As much as I think that he’s a hot young bear, I’m putting him here as an inspiration to the other young readers out there. I consider myself a good mentor when it comes to academia, but in regards to coming out to your family and peers, I’m not the right person to talk to about it (as I’m still pretty much in the closet). Consider Moony as a person who truly understands who he is and he simply doesn’t care about what others think of him. I think that’s the best advice anybody can ever give anybody — gay or straight.
Queervoice, or Zach, is also the founder and owner of one of the coolest site for us LGBTQ folk: QueerVoice.net. He is very opinionated and I love him for it. There were maybe 2 or 3 occasions where I really wanted to give him a good rimming (heh) and then I wonder “why only 2 or 3?” He is also drop dead sexy with his milky smooth skin and a handsome face that can convince me to do very bad things.
Sofakingbear has got to be the hottest bear on the planet. His eyebrows truly stand out and I haven’t seen any bearish fella that would even resemble his facial features. He has this very “unique” look and I simply adore it. Remember now, I’m just talking about his face. Speaking of his body, I will actually blurt out, “DAAAAYUUM!” Because, honestly, take a look at these photos and tell me if I’m wrong. I triple challenge dare you.
MrBenzadrine, or Benzy, is an enigma as he’s possibly shy in real life but a freaky exhibitionist on Tumblr. I guess if I wasn’t such your typical self-loathing queer then I’d probably be as courageous as Benzy. However, if I was as remotely hot as Benzy, then I’d probably have no issue getting stripped down to my birthday suit and even finding the time to teach others to properly wear a cock ring (is it shameful to admit that I don’t have one?)… KGHBear is his partner and they will get married this year and I am personally elated at such news. Oh and did I forget to mention that kghbear is another fine slab of sexy bear? Believe me, I won’t forget. And here are both the sexy Benzy and KGHBear…
This hot bear with the cross-eye-inducing nickname is James William Hindle. Before I talk about him, check out this music video of his:
I’m always starry-eyed every time I see him post. Chubarama was the one who introduced me to him many moons ago (in internet time) from his blog. And when I asked him to take a photo of himself with his Gizmo doll and actually did it, well, it was like “heavenly” — for truly a lack of a better description. He’s a talented musician and producer and I wish him the best. He also likes to take photos when he’s in the bath and that is always a great thing. Last but not least, he is one gorgeous woofy bear…
ABearJunkie, aka Will, is pretty much my identical brother. Except I’m Asian, so I refer to him as my Seoul Brother. His tastes in bears and entertainment are eerily similar to mines. Unfortunately, unlike me, he can grow a wicked beard and has a fantastically sexy body. (This is brand new news to me, Will!) He is also packing some serious heat, if you know what I mean. Let’s just say that it’s longer than the Wii controller.
Finally, but not least, we have Husbears. I don’t think I have seen anyone who was literally borne to have such a sexy moustache. He also loves to make goofy faces and he’s even more adorable because of it. He is sexy and cute and utterly huggable.
This is just a sampling of the bears I have had the pleasure of hanging around with on Tumblr. There is a heck of a lot more, but these are the ones I have been comfortable talking and flirting with on the Tumblr Dashboard. “Being hot” is definitely just an additional bonus because they’re all just really cool folks to talk to. Even with our common interest with bearish men, each and every one of them are so undeniably unique. And I just want to take this time to thank them for being so.
Check out this side-by-side comparison with the original trailer for Commando.
Yes, the sculpted muscular body caught my eye, but it’s his rugged good looks that made me even more interested. He completely reminds me of a stacked and built version of Ray Winstone (he would have made a perfect Beowulf).
A body like Arnold, with a Winstone face…
Here’s Mr. Porechenkov in all of his muscular shirtless glory…
Finally, here are more images and screenshots of Mikhail Porechenkov, but this time he did not shave off his fantastic furry chest. Why must huscular men like Porechenkov shave away those furry gifts from the gods?
I truly love the following photo set. Does anyone know where they’re from? Also, for any Russian-speaking folks out there, may we please have further info on Mr. Mikhail Porechenkov?! Pretty please?
These were my Google search keywords when I found the above photos. I always quote my sources; but due to doing way too much work with the translation, I’ll use Google Search as my reference. 🙂
Let’s end with the film’s DVD Making-Of Featurette (I’m guessing it is from the DVD)…
From all elbows
He does look like Turbo B of Snap
As of today, MMA fighter Brett Rogers has an undefeated 10-0 record. His biggest fight is also tonight against Fedor Emelianenko who is 30-1. As much as I would like for Rogers to win this one, Emelianenko is a very experienced fighter. Rogers is also extremely cocky about this fight that he’s made comments like “You know what I can’t honestly say I’ve seen one of Fedor’s fights”… Now whether it’s all in the name of theatrics, but this is looking like the equivalent of a Rocky Balboa versus Clubber Lang boxing match. And Rocky won.
But, hey, I’m no MMA analyst. The only important thing is that Brett Rogers is one thick brutish monster and here he is on Shirtless Saturday. Their fight will be televised tonight by CBS Television.
Pretty epic promo video for the upcoming fight from a Fedor fan
But wait one second and hold the presses… Check out this Behind-The-Scenes photo shoot of Fedor and Brett from M-1 Global. Mr. Emelianenko is pretty beefy. He just needs a few more pounds and he’ll be perfect. (Okay, okay, so sue me!) Anyway this is a treat for you furry chest fans…
Happy Halloween, guys and ghouls! Today’s Shirtless Saturday is a very delectable treat for you all. It’s Manuel Martinez completely naked in the upcoming film, Estigmas. That’s right. You’ve heard it right. Manuel Martinez. Is. Not. Wearing. Anything. At. All…
And as he is truly naked, please click on to see it

The founder/owner (as well as being a massively-built-like-a-mack-truck brutish musclebear), Steve Winters, has also created a reality-web series on their site called Ministry Of Muscle TV. Here’s a sample video where we get to see the massive and shirtless Jay Hughes.
Warning: NSFW video intro
It’s a fantastic series and we get an intimate look at what these mythical strongmen do to prepare themselves for various strength athletics competition. Definitely check them out.
Jay Hughes is also one of Ministry Of Muscle’s stable of strongmen models who’s available for film, TV, and photography: Ministry Of Muscle Models site.
These are but a few screenshots from the web-series. Check out the bearmythology Flickr Photostream for more images of this handsome brute. (Then check out the current whole Ministry Of Muscle set here.)
And as an added bonus, here are Jay Hughes and Rob Hughes (are they related?) showing off their bellies…

Here’s a vintage image of Larry Csonka (official site) from the July 22, 1974 edition of People Magazine when he played as a fullback with the Miami Dolphins. Make sure to download the whole magazine issue in PDF format (here’s the direct link)! It’s pretty nice of People for allowing us to download all of their archived issues. (And if anybody knows of any cool archived issues of People Magazine where we could find such beautiful bears, please let us know!) I have yet to go through them as I’m sure there are awesome articles and ads of our brawny and large brethren…
Finally, let’s check out Mr. Csonka adorably speak butchered Spanish as he promotes Miller Lite Bear…
Thanks to John (from my previous David DeLuise post), he pointed us out as to where we could find some shirtless scenes of David DeLuise. That collage is taken from the Disney Original Movie, Wizards Of Waverly Place: The Movie. I have never watched the series before, but after watching the film, I have become an instant fan. Of course, it helps that daddy bear eye candy David DeLuise is in it… Here are some video clips of his shirtless scene as well as his adorably cute dancing scene…
Now let me go back. I just called David DeLuise a “daddy bear.” I am like 1 year younger than him yet for some reason, I have no issues calling him a “daddy bear.” While researching for further info about him, I stumbled upon this article:
David DeLuise works his magic in ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’
By Rick Bentley | McClatchy Newspapers
At a recent New York autograph signing by the cast of the Disney Channel series “Wizards of Waverly Place,” David DeLuise kept hearing the same thing from young fans: “I wish you were my dad.”
“I tell them that we can write a script and then their dad will act just like me,” says DeLuise in a telephone inter-view. “Of course my real daughter is standing behind me just rolling her eyes.”
What has caught the admiration of so many young fans is DeLuise’s fun-loving and caring portrayal of Jerry Russo, the dad to wizards played by Selena Gomez, David Henrie and Jake T. Austin on the cable series. Maria Canals-Barrera plays their mom, Theresa.
The fans will see a different side of DeLuise’s character in the Disney Channel’s “Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie.”
As the story goes on the series, Jerry gave up his magical abilities when he decided to marry a mortal. A miscast spell turns back the romance clock to the time before Jerry and Theresa met, which means Jerry gets the old magic back.
While the children run around trying to reverse the spell to get back their parents, Jerry gets some use out of his magic.
“It was really fun to have my own wand. It was really cool because it had a handle. I am sure it’ll be in a toy store one day and I’ll have to buy one,” DeLuise says.
He uses the wand a lot because the movie has more than 300 special effects, more than the series.
Another change between the TV show and the movie: The series is shot entirely on a soundstage in front of a stu-dio audience but the two-hour movie was produced during six weeks in Puerto Rico, as if it were a feature film.
The switch from the TV style of shooting to a feature film approach was not that difficult for DeLuise, who has been in the movies “Dracula, Dead and Loving It,” “Kicking and Screaming” and “Robin Hood: Men in Tights.”
DeLuise, 37, began his career at the age of 8 when he played the son to his real father, Dom DeLuise, in the television movie “Happy.” He jokes that he had to audition for the role. Now it is his turn to be the veteran actor surrounded by youngsters.
“We have exceptional kids who are all super funny and super nice,” DeLuise says. “We got lucky. Selena has something you are just born with that is magical.”
(c) 2009, The Fresno Bee (Fresno, Calif.).
“I wish you were my dad.”
Oddly enough, I have that same wish yet at the same time I want a different type of “dad.” Again, this brings me to my theory that closeted gay men are basically missing (give or take) 15 years of their actual sexual lives. Let’s see, I’m currently 36, so subtract 15 and that makes me 21 years old. Yup, that’s about right. I should be looking for a partner and not a “daddy figure” but, hey, them’s the breaks. 😉
Alrighty then. -_^ With that tangent out of the way, here are further handsome photos of Mr. David DeLuise…
I’ve posted about Casey Hampton before, but I had to save his awesome shirtless photos just for this day. But before we continue, here’s a video of the massively beautiful and shirtless Casey at the SuperBowl XLIII Champions Parade.
The above video of Pittsburgh Steelers’ defensive tackle is unfortunately blurry, so here’s a short interview of the big guy. He might not be shirtless, but he’s got to be viewed as clearly as possible.
And as we resume our regularly-scheduled program, here are the amazing shirtless photos of our deliciously chubby football player that my great friend, D.T., has found and shared for us…
And if you are looking for more photos of this handsome bear, let me direct you to the Flickr Hive Mind. I am so obsessed with this Flickr feature that I’ve lost sleep over it. Experiment with differing keywords when you’re “researching” for our spectacular biggins; who knows what awesome discoveries you’ll find…
Oi! Click on the bloody photo below to check out my bloomin’ message for you blokes on Shirtless Saturday!
This is from an old Discovery Channel UK ad for the TV series, Football Hooligans International. Looks like it only lasted for one season, but I’m glad they have left that Hooligan-A-Gram for us to enjoy. Make sure to share your own work of art in the comments section.
