    Happy 81st birthday, Bruno Sammartino.

    [​IMG]

    Much like they say John Wayne spent his career playing Ted Williams, everything Hulk Hogan pretended to stand for, Bruno actually did. Stand up guy, lived a clean life, no juice, no drugs, just 275lbs of power from Abruzzo, Italy, via Pittsburgh. Held the belt for a record 4040 days (11yrs).


    He hung around w/ Arnold and gave him many body building tips that helped him win Mr. Olympia.

    He spent so much time at Jilly Rizzo's club, there were rumors Frank Sinatra was Bruno's manager.

    This pick from when he was 79 shows he's still in good enough shape to beat all our asses w/o breaking a sweat.

    God bless Bruno. Here's to many more birthdays.

    In the time after DiMaggio retired, there were few honorable men for Italian American children in the northeast to look up to. All they had in the neighborhood were their hard working parents and local thugs who exploited their fellow immigrants. Bruno filled that void, standing up for them and all of America in the face of many would be foreign invaders, like the Nazi Waldo von Erich, and the Texican Stan Hansen.
