Pigs Fly, Unicorms Dance

The Gripboard and Ironmind have extended an olive branch and the "retired" NFL strength coach behaves like an immature, spurned lover.

Get on your respective forums and welcome the good Ironmind doctor and Wannagrip! Well done folks!

To the Ironmind Overlords for tossing the fat troll fuck responsible for the unrelenting ad hominem attacks of one of the true greats of grip.

Inter-Net Cess Pools

Who else is following the sad commentary on the character assassination of a grip legend on the IronMind Forum? We have watched a gutless piece of trash rundown one of the true legends of the grip game  - David Horne, and the self important "enlightened" board owners do nothing. We surely expected more integrity from the west coast protectors of grip. ;)

The Grip Fruit Love Fest Continues

So now the dust has settled on "The Beast" IM thread and we are at the post warm shower rubdown. The grip fruits have now accepted the continually evolving explanations of what a "squat" is.

We are beginning to wonder if that #4 gripper was really closed so many years ago. It reminds us of the quote from the ancient "Inside Powerlifting" book where Terry Todd laments on why Ron Collins just does not retire and lie about what he used to lift like the rest of the old timers. OLD SCHOOL!!!

Who else has been following the incoherent 30+ page Kinney is a Beast Thread?
This is a wreck that TRAINS stop to watch. One of the "legends" gets called on an outlandish claim of squatting 440 pounds 60 times, and the guy doing the calling is dragged through the mud.

Frankly we expected more of this "legend" beyond ad hominem attacks through a third party, but being in grip for a LONG time, we find this as no surprise.

Sit back and enjoy, for we have found a true inter-net cess pool.

Woo Hoo!

Our favorite "retired" NFL coach , true to form, just managed to alienate all on the IM forum. Someone questioned JKinney's 440x60 squat set. Mayhem and incoherent name calling ensues. Looks like DVD sales are going to fall apart like a cheap Hong Kong suit. ;)

Saturday - 3/5

Updates have been few and far between. Busy with work and some other things. Still gripping and hammering away at chins and dips. Screwedup elbow and shoulder are much less screwed up.

It is still thrilling to see that the sport of grip has the same level of insanity as the day I joined our beloved grip forum in 2003. It has just moved over to the IronMind Forum. ;) It is wonderful to see our favorite "retired" football coach still advancing his incoherent missives.

On a serious note, it is amazing to see the strength progression of what used to be fantasy land 8 years ago to the new normal. The "grip nuts" are finally outnumbering the "grip fruits".

Who else is having a side splitting good time watching the Keg Tossing guy lose his mind on the Ironmind Forum? ;)

Do Not Fear - Still Here

Been buried with work and fairly nauseated with the endless cycle "whycanticlosemynumber3gripper" posts on our beloved forum.

We see our favorite legendary "retired" NFL strength coach has decided to return to forum posting by way of the newly hatched Ironmind Forums. It's charming to see all participants trip over their penises to placate our favorite forum crazy. The 3 dots ... and incoherent ramblings are in full effect. One must ask, how long until the permanent ban? ;)

Weekend etc.

Have not missed any days. Busy with work and reading.

We just recently caught up with the "Mighty Mitts" results and videos. Yes there probably was too much "thickbar", but the double Inch farmer walks for distance should go down as the biggest grip feats of the year. This "show" demonstrated to the grip world that the grip nuts and fruits have to come to terms with these contests, adapt and get stronger.
