Couldnt find a good copy of it, but I always loved the old Animal Pak ad, with the huge Lifter stepping back from the rack and all the puke on the floor...Not necessarily a PL shot, but badass nonetheless

Hey that was on sale actually at hyvee the other day. And, they had build your own 6 pack, with, get this, blue moon varieties, boulevard varieties, and lienenkugel varieties.... it was very tempting. I've usually only seen crap imports in those, not actual good stuff.

Yes it does. Jesse was a runner-up and soon to be champion in WSM, and one of the best people (I use the word best because there is no other word that fits) I've ever met. When I first got started in this sport he was one of the few people that really stopped to help me out with everything.

I hope to help half as many people if I live twice as long.

I'm a noob so I can't post a link or picture but if you add the http and all to the beggining of this (strongestman.billhenderson.org/bios/kaz.html) there are three pics of the two at the bottom.

I agree about Cardoza. He recently made his retirement official, leaving a hole in the LW class.

Yes, but he always planned on coming back after doing a bb show and getting healthy. A few weeks ago he made the "official" announcement that after multiple back surgeries he won't be able to train lower body.
