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’!]
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’!]
Former WWE superstar, Shad Gaspard, just got an audition with Brett Ratner’s upcoming superhero movie, “Youngblood” via Twitter [Comic Book Movie]. I’ve never heard of “Youngblood” though I’m somewhat familiar with Chapel’s character from “Spawn.” Body-wise, Shad definitely possesses the brawny muscles for the role. [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’!]
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… 😦
Question: You have Will Sasso as your lead in a sword and sandal parody (such as “Gladiator,” “Troy,” and “300”). Do you:
A) Make sure his wardrobe would be like the Spartans’? (You know, revealing Will Sasso’s ever-so-sexy body.)
B) Make sure we get to see some full shirtless scenes? (There’s always a sex scene in a sword and sandal film after all.)
C) Just show him partly shirtless. (In the bear/chub world, that’s hardly being shirtless at all!)
Yup, you guessed correctly. It’s “C.” Will Sasso barely showed any skin in the film, National Lampoon’s The Legend Of Awesomest Maximus. But, hey, I did not care at all because I was watching a film where Will Sasso was the freaking LEAD! The movie was ridiculously stupid, lowbrow, and very offensive. But, maybe it was because of Will Sasso, but I watched the darn thing about 4 times now and I’ll probably buy it on Blu-Ray too! Also, I actually found myself laughing with the film and not at it! What’s happening to my brain?
Anyway, would I have watched this if someone else who’s not as deliciously sexy as Will Sasso played Awesomest Maximus?… Let me think for a sec– HELL NO!
So here are pretty much all of the scenes where Mr. Will Sasso teased us with some skin.
I know, I know. This won’t cut it for some of you. 😛
So here’s a treat. I’m an avid
stalker visitor of Will Sasso’s blog @ HamFatter.com and there’s a cool entry there that pretty much reads like porn: Dog vs Bear. Here is a snippet of such erotic fan-fiction…
Okay, Sasso walks at 6’3, 290lbs. His fighting weight is 260 maaaybe 250 but I don’t think so. The next time you’re with him I want you to make a careful study of his CALVES. Please understand their mass, vascularity and most importantly their positioning on the actual bone. Forget the perfect heart shape and the index finger sized arterial vein that branches and feeds the pulsing beast. Rather, look how high they sit. These are what we call “High Insertion Calves” in the bodybuilding world. Now why is this significant? Well, high insertion calves are almost always a very good indication of an abundance of fast twitch (red twitch) muscle fiber. Believe it or not, Will is mostly fast twitch. He’s made up of the kind of muscle one uses for explosive and powerful movements (see his high school football reputation and scouting history). You’ll rarely find a big man who can move as quickly or jump as high. Watch him dance around on his toes sometime. He makes you look like you’re underwater. The first thing a trainer would do with you, Chad, is work to get the lead out of them feet. You tend to plod. I know much of this may have to do with a general malaise but you’re still mostly made up of slower twitch fiber. You may have more endurance than the bald idiot and that’s a good thing.
I think I just fainted… Santa Maria! 🙂
