Are the Colts really thinking about signing behemoth strongman?
A few days ago, Colts owner Jim Irsay sent out a tweet suggesting the team would sign strongman Hafthor Bjornsson. Is that really true?
A few days ago, Colts owner Jim Irsay sent out this delightful tweet.
Off/Def Lineman,so many 6-3 to 6-7..320-365 lbs/Big,Physical and Nasty! Speaking of size/strength..GM Grig's just might sign "The Icelander"— Jim Irsay (@JimIrsay) May 13, 2013
And if you were like, “Um, what?” here’s the guy to whom Irsay was referring.
Not the guy on the right, naturally. But the guy on the left, whose name is Hafthor Bjornsson and who absolutely towers over one of the (formerly) baddest men on the planet.
Bjornsson (can I call you Thor instead, please?) is coming off a second-place finish in the Arnold Strongman Classic 2013 -- I don’t know what that is exactly, but I’d guess it sounds like an important bodybuilding event. Reportedly, Thor stands at 6-foot-9 and weighs in at close to 420 pounds, and he apparently was a basketball player before a knee injury nudged him into strongman competitions.
Not surprisingly, the dude looks powerful in this video.
So, is any part of Irsay’s tweet true? Maybe, maybe not (but probably not). Most likely, it’s Irsay just screwing around on Twitter. But it's yet another reason why you’d want Irsay running your favorite team.
