Roger LaPointe-The Art of Manliness Part 2-#320-Eric Fiorillo The Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes Atomic Athletic President, Olympic Lifter, Stone Lifter and Writer Roger LaPointe to the Broadcast. If you love being a man and enjoy the great old time stories all about those adventures then this show will really make your blood course through your veins. Eric and Roger each read one of their favorite manly stories from yesteryear. Both stories are filled with danger, adventure, guns, bloody fighting, jumping off a cliff, grizzly bears and living through a time I can identify and appreciate and wish I could be a part of. Rogers story reads like this: Here’s the headline from the Chicago Tribune Circa 1888 to get your heart pumping. It goes like this: “A Mighty man of Muscle”, “Sam Coollidge’s Fistic Exploits in the Early Days of Denver”, “His blows Cracked Skulls and Broke Jaws — Knocking Out the Sheriff and Holding the Entire Town at Bay — A Terrific Bare-Knuckle Fight with a Grizzly Bear That Ended in Sam’s Death.” When Roger read this newspaper article I could envision myself there. This might be a bygone era so far from today’s world but who wouldn’t want to be part of knowing a man like Sam who only makes an appearance once in a life time. The story I read comes from a super manly book recommended to me by Strongman Frank DiMeo. The book is named Cowboys, Mountain Men & Grizzly Bears. The authors name is Matthew P. Mayo. I read a story called Grisly Expedition. I’ll wet your appetite just a bit for this rousing story. On May 14, 1805 Lewis and Clark’s ambitious expedition was almost cut short when they saw this massive grizzly sleeping about 300 yards from the river and decided to fire upon it. What these men met up was an unstoppable very angry grizzly who they thought they had killed but quickly recovered and pursued them in full gallop. Wait till you hear the amazing ending. These adventures are so much fun to read about and listen to. Dreams and Manly pursuits are what we are. May they always live on! The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Connects Your Brain To Your Brawn. Enjoy!
