Some friends from Wichita were in town last weekend, participating an arm wrestling tournament. Now, don't get snooty about it...I love demolition derbies, too.
So we went to gawk, because hey, great people watching! And, you know, to support them or whatever.
To the left is Jason, pulling hard against some other dude. "Pulling" is the industry term. Learned that this weekend. Check out the special table, though...I had no idea there was special equipment involved.
It was pretty darn interesting. Of the three friends who were there, one got 3rd in Heavyweight Novice, one got 2nd in Middleweight Pro, and one got first in Heavyweight pro. So, yay!
And there was some guy who's apparently the best arm wrestler in the world, and the movie "Over the Top" was based on him. In Colorado Springs, you take whatever celebrity you can get.
