Man I remember a long time ago I had seen Ronnie in the original Musclemag lol, and there was an interview on him winnning his first Olympia. I had no idea who Ronnie was but remember thinking, that is one big ass cop haha. Now, he is retired.....
I also think that he should stay retired. It's 100% sure that he is not able to fix those problems he has. And secondly, he has absolutely nothing to prove (I know that's not his reason to come back but still). It will be only sad to see him compete looking like complete shit like he did at Olympia 2007. Ronnie is one of the best (if not the best) bodybuilder ever but I don't still want to see him compete looking like half of it he was...
I loved watching ronnie dominate the stage, it was great. But what i loved more than that, what really got me pumped about ronnie was his passion. I have never seen another bber with that same passion and love of the game.
When you think about ronnie coleman what gets you pumped? Sure his inhuman size and conditioning were great, but it's those screams of "Yeah Budday" or "Lightweight" or "Ain't Nuthin but a Peanut" that get me going. The inspiration for me is his infallible desire to lift and compete. He isn't doing it for money or fame, he is doing it because he loves it. You can see it on his face. You saw it on his face during his routine at the O this year.
I one day hope to have that level of passion and feel the same joy he does towards lifting.
His physique is not what makes ronnie the best bber of all time in my eyes, its his spirit and the mind blowing workouts and pleasure he derives from them.
probably, the best post i've ever read on this site.
agree at all
