The 1980 Strongbow Contest

The 1980 Strongbow Contest

Where you aware of the 1980 Strongbow Contest?  I'm sure not.  The Strongbow Contest was a strongman contest that was held in England. It consisted of a clean and jerk, deadlift (both of these events are performed to a one rep maximum weight) and as many shoulder press repetitions as possible with a pair of 121 pound dumbbells. Bill Kazmaier won the contest with a 374 pound Clean and Jerk, 837 pound Deadlift and 17 repetitions with a pair of 121 pound Dumbell Press. Lars Hedlund of Sweden came in second. American Ernie Hacket came in third with a 369 pound clean and jerk, a 700 pound deadlift and ten reps with the dumbbells.

NHL Blood Series Enforcers Cards


NHL Blood Series Enforcers Hockey Cards
2011-2012

Finally something about hockey that interest me.  The 2011-2012 Enforcers Cards Box.  I'm not a hockey fan and I don't watch hockey on tv.  But I'm a huge fight fan.  I admire fighters and I admire those gladiators who drops their gloves on ice.  So I don't care about the snipers and franchise players.

But now hockey is becoming a wimpy sport with the silly media's obsession with concussions and head blows.  So wimpy that even the parution of this cards box creates controversy?!?  With those countless suspensions and witch-hunting the NHL is quickly transforming itself into the Ice Capades.  And unfortunately the only real gladiators of the ice are becoming obsolete.

So get yourself a part of hockey's history and by buying this piece of collection.  A complete set of cards and memorabilia  of what was once for decades an important part of the hockey game:

THE ENFORCERS.


The blood-splatered cards will be on sale January 19, 2012.  I will get mine get yours now on itgtradingcards.com
