Who are your heroes?
I was just reading this little article about an appearance by Jay Cutler in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Three things struck me: The first, which has nothing to do with the point of this blog post, was that it was cool that Cutler was doing an appearance at a gym just to help a buddy. The other two were about having our heroes. The article began by introducing Vernon Bradley, a bodybuilder from Halifax, Canada, who drove all the way to Rocky Mount, a 21-hour drive, just to meet Cutler. Then the article ends with Cutler saying he was inspired to become Mr. Olympia after seeing a picture of Chris Dickerson, winner of the Mr. Olympia in 1982. It makes you wonder: Who's looking at a picture of Cutler right now, and will they be standing onstage at the O in a few years, inspiring others?
