I dont know if I should mention his name.
Maybe I'll let y'all guess, it's an African silverback Gorilla, not from Africa, with arms as big as fire hydrants the last time I saw him, and much like Pompeo (I'm sure) - he cooks up a great, great pizza!
Champ boxer too, I've never shied away from saying that, because he is, but he has - or at least HAD back when I knew him - a lot to improve on condioning and core fitness wise.
But anyway ...
If there is one defining comment he made that stands out to me - it is this.
"You're the person thats changed how I view Indians!"
Now, he didnt view Indians as anything bad or nothing like that, trust me.
But you know, the "pre concieved" notions, the accent, the mannerisms (ever notice the "head bob"?) - and well, you know ...
When you think India, its usually SOME good - and a lot of negative that comes into your mind, eh.
Lets face it, we all think that ...
Yours truly though took all that, and just threw it out the window - and I didnt even try.
I was just being myself.
And knowing my background, knowing how I didnt come from anywhere near a priveleged background, and allt the other stuff.
He made that comment several times, and I dont know if I ever told him, but it's a greater honor than the "Indian porn star" he once called me, hehe.
Marc, THAT is the comment that stuck because it's true, and such an honor!
I get the same feeling from some of you on this list too - so thank YOU!
And for me, fitness wise - or should I say MARKETING wise, Matt Furey and Brooks Kubik, all these guys back in the day were who planted that seed.
Of course, I was focused on everything but business back then. Hehe.
Gotta sow those wild oats, I still do!
Somewhere along the line the horse matured a little bit though, but he's stil got some "chainsaw" elements to him, and is a huge, huge supporter of the NRA, Amendement numero two, and so forth!
He loves him some great barbie too... I'll let ya'll figure it out.
And if there is one thing YOU guys have told me, that is the greatest honor for me, it is that.
That my stuff is far tougher and more advanced than anyone else's out there, including the GREATS - who are far greater than I ever could be.
Remember Mark Taylor, the great Aussie captain who wouldn't surpass Don Bradman's 334 in Karachi despite being able to ?
Thats the respect!
But RESULTS wise, I've gone one step better ... and so it should be for you too!
Off my chest now.
PS - Eat More Weigh less will WORK, period, even if you're "El Glutton" like yours truly is.
