    don't get ESPN here.. but TSN always has the old ESPN re-runs on all the time. Fun to watch, although I'd rather watch one live where they don't edit the hell out of it.

    magnus van magnuson is a beast!
    "....but this whole sport is based on craziness. Let's face it, you have to be ludicrous to be in this game. You won't make any money; it's the most difficult sport on Earth, I don't care what anybody says. You bust your ass in the gym for a lousy trophy that falls apart by the time you get it home, but it's a sport of love. You do it because you love it."

    does he even do it anymore?

    last time he won was like 97 i think!

    i watched the final tonight. some of them guys were really quite muscular.

    the competitors of today have a lot less bodyfat then they did a few years back. A lot of them are ex-BBers i heard.

    anyone else fancy squatting that truck?

    I watched off and on, all day! As for the competitors being more muscular, take a look at Bill Kazmaier and Jon Paul Sigmarrson (sp?), along with the rest of the guys from those years.

    Those Strongman competitors are beasts.When you watch the ones from the 70s & 80s most of them are pretty fat but if you watch the ones from mid 90s to present most of them are solid as hell.Like Chris said just look at Bill Kazmaier he's 300+lbs & he looks pretty solid
