Washington's Strongest Man!

So it's been slow around this here blog lately. Largely due to "life" getting in the way, but things have seemed slow overall around town. You don't need spanning_time to tell you about the Bite of Seattle (which we've missed once again). That said, here's something more than worthy of your attention, courtesy of the SLOG. Tomorrow, early enough to still make the Capitol Hill Block Party, there's a free(!) set of strongman competitions at the Redhook Brewery in Woodinville. Yes, Seattle's own (well, the Seattle metro area's own) version of the World's Strongest Man competition, which features all manner of scientifically-enhanced behemoths. There's no way to know if our own competitors will be similarly 'roided up, but regardless of whether they are, they'll be tossing around 800 lb. tires moving heavy things from place to place. Makes me tired just to think of it.

As an added bonus, you can also watch members of the Pacific Northwest Armwrestling team get schooled by teammate and World Champ Jacob Abbot.
