I get a kick out of “professional” wrestling. I love the over the top storyline and bigger than life superhero and villain characters. Just picture, “weighing in at 328 and one half pounds the *very* heavy weight champion and master of the finishing moves known as “Chinese Food” and “no portion control“. He’s had that championship belt for some time.
And introducing Foooooooools Fitness!!! His master moves at the gym make him a contender. His signature moves “the granola bar” and “spicy v-8” give him a chance, but can he strip the Mad Mime of the title?!”
This last day I dug out my old weight lifting belt from just after college days. I have not seen 40 inches in a while… a very long while. But there it sits, looking strangely like some Wrestling Championship Belt daring me on to win it back.
I was sitting on the stone wall in front of my house the other day and a pick-up truck drove by and one of the two hillbilly kids screams at me… “Repulsive!” after getting over the shock that he could actually master a three syllable word naturally part of me was rather hurt by it. Normally I really don’t mold my life around what others think (the artist rebel and all) and moreover I’m not looking to impress hillbillies or guys for certain. Maybe a hillbilly girl like Ellie May from the Beverly Hillbillies but even her… she's got some odd pets.
While I would have liked “Repulsive” said differently, and perhaps not at all… but they are just plain right. I’m thinking that “Mad Mime” the VERY heavy weight champ is the villain. He deserves a big boo and some cat calls. In short they are right. That “repulsive” guy stole my life, my health, and frankly keeps sneaking up on me to hit me with an aluminum chair. (or is it Crab Ragoons and Beef teriyaki?) His manager named “No Hope” is always ready to get me with a cheap shot.
The contender Fools Fitness has a few tricks too. One of them is finally having some tag team partners and fellow fighters to watch his back and offer support. To all who read the blog and comment I want you to realize I appreciate you got my back. I think I can fight the Mad Mime and win, if it’s a fair fight. If not maybe Richard Simmons will run in the ring and deck him with a deal-a-meal and slim fast shake.
And remember that 9 out of the 10 voices at Foolsfitness say it’s all about wanting that belt enough! -Alan
