I have had a lot of "why questions" in my brain lately. 


Why did Roger Staubach have to retire?

Why did Lynyrd Skynyrd's plane have to crash? I mean, think about what they put out in a short career. Ronnie was only 29. Allen Collins was at the top of his game. I don't know if they would have made it very long with all of the drugs and drinking, but you never know.

Why doesn't everyone like crunchy peanut butter? Creamy seems so damn soft, ya know?

Why do people text or actually talk on the phone when they are in the gym?

Why'd the Steelers have to be so damn good in the 70's and 80's and always beat my beloved Cowboys?

Why are kids such a pain in the ass and tell me why again we feel the need to have them?

Why is there so much information out there about how good full squats are for you but people insist on going half way down depth-wise?

Why do people waste their height? Like someone who is six- foot -five and never played sports. Seriously? When I was younger, I would always say, "God wasted that height on him!" and meanwhile I was hanging upside down and going to bed at 7:30 pm just to try to force myself to grow to five- foot -ten.

Why doesn’t everyone know that lifting weights are the fountain of youth? It's the only way to transform your body except for surgery. And surgery always looks bad. It's nuts that everyone doesn’t lift weights. Man, and people look so bad when they don't lift weights, like one of the 1970's actors from the Bob Newheart show. You can tell when someone doesn't lift, right? Right. They look different, man, like they aren’t complete as a man. And nothing better than a girl who lifts. I guess some people think it's "gross" when women are muscular, but I think that's the way they should look. Soft is better than hard? Never. I doubt if cavewomen were all soft and skinny with a big fake chest. She woulda died real quick, all unuseful and shit.

Why does alcohol have to be bad for you?

Why doen't everyone hunt? You are missing out. Fishing is great, but hunting is where it is at, baby. You and nature, the solace, the cold, the winter skies, the smell of gunpowder, the dog retrieving, the 12 point buck, the excitement the night before, the getting ready, the sound of everyone loading their guns, the waiting.

Why aren't people more self aware that they are boring everyone in the room?

Why do things that are the best things to eat like cake and ice cream bad for you?

Why do some people think Communism is a good thing? Pack your shit and go to China. You will be begging to get back here. Those poor people over there. I like the attitude of the Russian people, and Putin says some badass things, but let us not kid ourselves, the people are still slaves to the government. 

Why did it used to be in fashion to act cool when you made a great play but now it's accepted for a player to dance and jump up and down even when they make an average play? Seriously? That's sportsmanship? It's stupid and self serving. And men look stupid when they dance. All of them. Even Fred Astaire. 

Why do people fall for supplement claims? Ah, I was guilty of it when I was 14, I admit. But there is so much info out there now on what works and what doesn't. Gotta study up some and don't believe the ads.

Why do people get offended so easily? Lighten up, man. I bet the locker room is the only place left that you can bust balls in America. I bet it isn’t in the military, with all this horseshit going on.

Why are people evil? I always have a tough time with that one. You mean, they steal kids and sell them? Sometimes people sell their own kids? People just kill people for no reason? People kill people for power? What the hell is great about power if you sell your soul? Evil man, it is everywhere. My eyes are wide freaking open, and what I see is bad, real bad. I'm always asking myself, "People are really like that?” Politicians lie to us and we know it and we just accept it. "Oh, he's a politician." SO? They work for US, FOR US, and they lie to US. Unreal. Everyone needs to turn off the mainstream brainwashing shit and see what is going on. Sometimes I wish that I was naive to it all like I was just a few years ago. 

Why doesn't everyone understand the common sense argument that when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns?

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
