OT, fwiw, but in the early 1980s, Terry Todd and Tony Fitton put together The World Series of PL at Auburn University. An invitational PL event with just a few of the top dogs in each weight class, a few seminars, and an early version of WSM contests using just a barbell and 5 Lifts, limited to a select group of NFL players. This was around when Terry Bradshaw + the Steelers won 4 Super Bowls in a 5 year span, and Roger Staubach + the Cowboys were their chief rivals.
It was Steelers Center Mike Webster who won the NFL event, with Steelers OL Jon Kolb taking 2nd.
Sad to see what became of Webster and so many others years later.
U can't mention Terry Bradshaw without Roger Staubach in the same dialogue?....Those two were my absolute favorites back in the day, with Joe Namoth running in 2nd!....
My pro teams were Pittsburgh/Dallas and my college teams were Alabama (Go Bear), Bulldogs, FSU, and the Hurricanes!!!!...
