Who are some of you guys favorite pros, physiques aside. The first pro I ever met was Melvin Anthony and he was one of the most down to earth guys I have ever met. I recently met Vince Taylor as well and he was a real cool guy too. Real down to earth and more than happy to take the time to talk to me and my buddy. I was not impressed with Cutler or Freeman, neither took the time of day to even say thanks when given a compliment. Jerome Ferguson, although he is not a pro, is another one that is a really good guy and representative. Here is a recent pic of me with good ol Vince boy! Discuss..

i havent met any pros in person but from what i've seen in videos and interviews i'd say that Markus Ruhl is my favorite pro. he just seem like a down to earth, layed back kinda guy. he allways seem to have a positive attitude and fooling around and not taking himself to seriuosly.

dexter jackson apparently is an ass from what i've heard.

c'mon you can't beat ronnie for all out charisma and just a flat out nice guy. i think a lot of that stems from his faith. there's probably no one i would like to meet more.

Yeah I would really like to meet JOJ and Lee. Both seem like they would be cool to talk to. I forgot to mention Levrone. He was a real nice guy and seemed happy to take some compliments and talk a bit.

Lee likes to hit women...so not cool. Quincy Taylor, Vince Taylor, Ruhl, Flex, Vic, all very cool guys. The Gift spoke to my friends and myself for 20 minutes at the 2006 Mr. O expo, he even did about a 48 inch vertical leap to the top of the MetRx podium for us.

Coolest pro's I've ever met have been, Mike Matarazo and Cris Cook. Cook ate with us at Sonny's after pre-judging at the Southern USA's here, and went out with us after the night show when he was 6 weeks out from the NY Pro. Really down to earth, easy going and just a cool dude happy to be a part of the sport.

Except he was an asshole to the nicest member in the history of this forum.

I'd go with Desmond Miller. I met him at the AC just after he turned pro and he was easily the nicest, most humble, and gracious pro I met all day. I just wish he'd bring his back up a bit to keep the naysayers quiet because it would be refreshing to see more people with his type of personality in the top tier of our sport.

I have seen a lots of them, but the best was Gunter. He always has time for the fans and supporters. I think he is very professional.
