Throwing Their ‘Weights’ Around

from Phil Sheridan of the Philadelphia Daily News,

They don’t seem to have anything in common except for their hometown of Gatineau, Quebec.

Danny Briere is a quick, skilled hockey player. If he is arguably the most talented player on the Flyers, he is certainly the smallest.

Hugo Girard has won the title of Canada’s strongest man five times and was the subject of the 2003 documentary Strongman. He is 6-foot-3 and 330 pounds with, he is quick to point out, “about 10 percent body fat.”
