Dont mean to hijack the thread, but I started it about 3 years ago. By training at this one gym regularly, a few guys all connected through me and they all started training together. Every time I head back there, we train together just about every day. Hopefully their english gets better this year when I go back, and they all sign up on the forvm. All good guys.

Mike Morris is a Jersey bodybuilding great... One of the true freaks and among the nicest guys you'll ever meet.

Very cool that he's out your way now. Give him a pound from all the brothers at Animal.

thx G, I have to distribute the straps to those already registered but a few that have not had the time want to know if I can get more sent. I told everyone the care pkg was to be based on Forum signups not the fb group sign ups, So I am not keeping one as I have my old ones. Anyway pics should be awesome. Sorry Charles Staley has to miss this one but will be attending future meets. So fr Ben our club videographer has promised to attend so we should have some good vids and pics for you guys

Big Mike loves that I made him Senior Animal Advisor to our Chapter (he always liked titles lol) I decided to get him an Iconic shirt and have his name IFBB Pro and Title put on it soon as I can get one done.

As I sit here eating my Tilapia and 6 egg whites with asparagus in front of me I'm thinking I should tell you all how much I love and adore you as I may not be alive tomorrow. I am Hitting Legs Tomorrow at Metroflex Gym-Phoenix with some of the biggest strongest Guys in the Valley and I dont think I am going to survive so My will will be done and in Crystals care and I will see you all beyond the Pearly gates :) The Yoke has already been mentioned I am surely gonna die tomorrow :)

To Quote my Friend Seth Harly
strong words before we rest up for tomorrow's meet. it's still our mothafuckin set!

CT Fletcher
I DONT EXPECT TO LIVE A LONG LIFE, THAT'S WHY YOU SEE ME RANTING A RAVING IN MY VIDS, I DONT HAVE MUCH TIME, I HAVE A MISSION THAT I MUST FULFILL BEFORE I LEAVE THIS WORLD. I KNOW BETTER THAN MOST, TOMORROW IS NOT PROMISED, YOU CAN BE CUT DOWN AT ANY MOMENT, DEATH IS UNCARING, YOUR "UN DONE" LIST MEANS NOTHING TO THIS CRUEL MASTER. I DONT "FEAR" DEATH AT ALL, IVE SEEN IT UP CLOSE, SHOOK HANDS WITH IT, EMBRACED IT, AND WAS COVERED BY IT, IT WAS "PEACEFUL". BUT I WAS SPARED THAT PERMANENT PEACE, FOR A WHILE LONGER. WHY? WHY ME, IM NOTHIN SPECIAL, A HARD MAN, WHO LIVED A HARD LIFE, I DONT DESERVE THIS 2ND CHANCE, BUT...BE THAT AS IT MAY, HERE I AM, AND DAMN "IT", IM GONNA KICK, YELL, SCREAM, AND CAUSE A MUTHA FUCKIN RUCKAS!!!! AND FREE AS MANY OF YOU AS I POSSIBLE CAN FROM THE PRISON OF YOUR OWN "MIND", FREE FROM DOUBT, FREE FROM FEAR, FREE FROM THE CHAINS THAT BIND YOU!! IM GONNA DO IT BY PROVING TO YOU, YOU HAVE IT WITHIN YOU TO CONTROL THAT WHICH IS MOST IMPORTANT, 'THE EFFORT THAT YOU GIVE', IN THE WEIGHT ROOM, IN SCHOOL, ON YOUR JOB, IN FUCKIN "LIFE", THE EFFORT IS "ALWAYS" CONTROLLED BY "YOU", AND LADIES AND GENTS, MUTHA FUCKAS, AND MUTHA FUCKEES, THE GODDAMN EFFORT IS THE "KEY", IT IS THE THING THAT LEGENDS ARE MADE OF, THE THING THAT LAST'S, LONG AFTER WE ARE DEAD AND GONE. 3OO ONE OF MY PERSONAL FAV. MOVIES IS AN EXAMPLE OF THIS, THE SPARTANS LOST, BUT THE FUCKIN "EFFORT" THEY GAVE, MAKES THEM IMMORTAL!!! CALL ME CRAZY, IF YOU WANT, I DONT CARE, ONE BIT, BUT I WANT THAT KIND OF DEATH, FIGHTING, YELLING, GIVING EVERY OUNCE OF WILL I HAVE TO MUSTER, HELL NO I WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT, IM C.T. MUTHA FUCKIN FLETCHER, AND IM ON A MISSION, IF ONLY FOR A MOMENT, TO SHAKE THE WORLD DOWN TO ITS FUCKIN FOUNDATION!!!!!

YA BUDDY !!!!!
