Well, I wasn’t sure whether to post this here or in the Building a Better Body forum, but given the disdain that competitive bodybuilding is held in on this site, I figured that qualified it as “off-topic!”
But come on, seriously, is anyone else excited for the Mr. O? Or am I the one and only? I’m not a competitive bodybuilder, hell, I follow westside principles, so I dont even really workout like a bodybuilder. But I AM excited for the Mr. O for a couple of reasons:
I want to see just how big and freaky ronnie can get (supposedly he’s even bigger.) it seems that he’s just said “screw it” to anything but size, honestly, I think that’s kinda cool. It’s compelling, like a car wreck - and I mean that in a completely positive way.
Victor Martinez is the best up and comer. i’m curious to see where he will place against the old guard if he comes in in top condition
There are rumors that they’re going to fix this years competition in Jay Cutler’s favor to have a more marketable champion. Ronnie has expressed anger over this and has vowed to come in in such dominating formt hat there is simply no question who Mr. O is. Even if none of this is true I’ll be interested to see who moves up (Dexter last year, Johnny O this year?) and who moves down (Levrone, Nasser if he even competes)
I dont follow the IFBB for aboutl 11 months of the year, and I won’t be getting the PPV. The one BB show my friend ever dragged em to was borign as hell (alhtough it WAS an amateur show, so there really weren’t any freaks)Really the only thing I’ll do is log onto flexonline to find out who wins, and then make my once a year purchase fo flex and md. Is it silly? Yeah. Homoerotic? Err … regrettably so, I’ll just have to do my best to ignore that. Subjective? Absolutely. … BUT HOLY COW RONNIE IS FRICKIN’ HUGE!!!
