Another Day at the Office
When all is said and done, a man’s life can be defined as an on-going journey of milestones. Examples include hitting your very first Little League home run, watching Star Wars for the first time, getting into your first fight (and not losing), beating Super Mario Brothers on the NES, or more importantly- the first time you realized that Skinemax existed. OMGBOOBIES!!!!!!!!!!!!
Needless to say, there are a plethora of milestones that will undoudtedly shape a man’s life- for better, or for worse. But lets be honest, the bench press holds a special place in our hearts, and will forever be recognized as the holy grail of manhood. Although picking your date up in a Stealth bomber is a close second.
All that said, here is reason # 2,845 why I love my job. This is a video of Lincoln-Sudbury senior Jason Shuman hitting a bench press PR of 200 lbs:
200 lbs may not seem like such a big deal to many of you reading this, but when you consider the fact that Jason weighed like 54 lbs three weeks ago, and 185 stapled him not too long ago…………………………..and I told him he’d have to clean my fridge if he missed this lift- well, all I can say is great job buddy!
UPDATE: Jason just informed me that he wants to bench 225 by August. To be continued………
UPDATE II: Oh, and if he plays his cards right, he’d also like to make out with a real live girl by September. Whoa whoa whoa. Lets not get too carried away here dude. One thing at a time.
