I got a strange voice mail from an unreocognized number and a text from my old college roomate the other morning. If it was not from two different sources I would have thought they were pulling my leg. Well, yours truly has made the big time. There's a picture of me in Muscle and Fitness on page 206 in the October issue. It's actually a very cool issue about power v. strength. If you send me a copy with a self addressed stamped envolope I will gladly autograph it for you.

Oooooo!! Did have a headline like 'High Reps for Toning' or 'Eat that mother ****ing cheese burger'??

I don't really read any magazines anymore, but hopefully it was a good article. Congrats anyway Vincent!

Thanks, it's just a picture, my name is not even mentioned. It's about 5x3 so it's a decent size. It's next to a blurb on something like ten things you should know about pl. It's really nothing crazy, but I am super excited about it.

Congrats Vin! Now sue them for illegally using your likeness to sell their magazine. It's the American way!

JK - Don't do that!

Congratulations! That is quite the accomplishment! Especially not knowing it happened until after the fact. I do think, however, that you made it "big time" before this ever happened. Congrats again!!

I don't think they'd have used it without asking him. I think they were mistaking it for a picture of wildlife. A bear for instance. Just my guess. Although a bear would have a neck. haha congrats Vin!

Congrats man that is awesome to hear I will pick up a copy. But is Octobers issue out already or did you mean August?


Just went to the website and saw that it is the October issue. I think this issue also has an interview with Matt Kroc.

Congrats Vin!!! I know how your feeling, Because I was flipping through the new August issue of PLUSA, and I saw a picture of me squatting at a meet I did in Feburary. I was really excited about it and shocked because I wasn't expecting it. It was a pretty cool feeling!!!!

Wait! Were you wearing your AtLarge shirt?

Wait! Were you wearing your AtLarge shirt?

Unfortunately no. John was in attendance so i was sporting the Inzer. However, Rhodes was wearing his ALN for the liftoffs. It's too bad he is not picture worthy.

When I heard I was in the mag I was so hoping it was of me in the red ALN shirt I was wearing to and from. I'm beginning to think there's a conspiracy against you guys. I'm a gym diva, I go through lots of wardrobe changes. That and I'm a sweaty hog who needs to change t's a lot.
