T-Mag, here’s a note of recognition to you.
You put a principal value on learning, character, and health - all while keeping a sense of humour.
I think I can generalize and say you’ve motivated many young weightlifters to pursue a healthy approach to the sport. You’ve also showed many here the value of learning. Examples like John Berardi, Chris Shugart and TC are the ‘cool guys on the block’ who make everyone else want to follow their footsteps - be strong as a bull and smart as a cow.
I won’t kiss your ass too much, but realizing that many weightlifters are severely inclined towards an arrogant and dumb attitude in the sport, you do a great job of smacking them upside down and saying:
‘Hey, THAT’S the way you oughta be looking dumass’.
My point? Be sure to keep this online sanctuary of weightlifting a pillar for the t-man ideal - Strength, Health, Knowledge, and Character.
