  1. Old man @ 68, huh? Let’s see how far the writer of this article knuckles under when he “Eddie” reaches 68! Sad fate for the gent. Prayers to his family.

  2. Common sense is becoming more and more scarce nowadays. It is always good to have either a spotter or at least know people are around when lifting that kind of weight. God rest his soul
