Globetrotters, Green Bay and the Godfather of Fitness

Having won over 98% of 22,000+ games played over the past 85 years, the Harlem Globetrotters amazingly <wink, wink> scored yet another tally for their win column by defeating the Washington Generals in an ‘exhibition game’ here in Grand Rapids this weekend. Whew!

You can be anything that you can imagine – Meadowlark Lemon, Harlem Globetrotter for 22 seasons

Speaking of wins for the history books, my Green Bay Packers are going to the Superbowl. My prediction for Feb 6: Green Bay 41, Pittsburgh 17. (not to put any pressure on you, Green Bay, but my birthday is Feb 7. It sure would be nice if’n ya’ll would be so kind as to give me just one more win this season, eh?)

Show me a good loser, and I’ll show you a loser. Vince Lombardi (1913-1970)

Last – but certainly not least – perhaps the most respected man in the fitness business, Jack LaLanne, completed the final set of his 96 year workout. While I’d assume he put the dumbbells back in the rack where they belong, I’m quite sure all of us who have been inspired, educated and motivated by Jack’s message and personality over the years would more than happily follow him around the gym, picking up his weights, in the hope that just a little of his mojo would rub off on us in the process.

I tell people I can’t afford to die; it will wreck my image! Jack LaLanne (1914-2011)

Jack, I think it’s safe to say, your image will remain intact for a long, long time.

Jack obviously read the latest Lou Schuler/Alwyn Cosgrove book, New Rules of Lifting for Abs
