Grip Sport News Story

This past Monday, an area news station, WETM in Elmira / Corning, NY, came to my garage gym here in Bradford County, Pennsylvania, and they ran the story on Thursday night.

Below is the video clip. In it I talk about my competitive history in Baseball, Strongman and Grip, I talk about what is included in a Grip Contest, as well as the backgrounds of some of the competitors – after all, Grip Sport isn’t just a bunch of hulkish 300+ pound monsters…

    Some fat dude is on his couch watching the news right now, drinking a Schlitz and eating a pork rind saying, “Shit…I can do that…”

    Congrats on a big TV interview man! You represented the sport quite well. And the interviewer seemed to be quite fond of you too – plus teaching him to tear the phonebook on camera was genius!

    Hell, I got fired up just watching the video. Imagine that interviewer watching you get hyped up. His heart must’ve been going like a hummingbird.
