Lance Storm & other Canadian Notes
June 24, 2003 - by Neil J. MacDonald


LANCE STORM should be nicknamed 'the Alberta Clipper'! In case you don't know what that is--it's a quick, cold snowstorm. There are rattlesnakes on the Alberta plains, so: consider 'Rocky Mtn. Rattler ' as another choice! That one oughta really bug ol' Stone Cold!

Some Canadians I challenge you to enter into your conversation some time. The strongest man ever to live and the world's only true giant was the Cape Breton giant, Angus McAskill. He reached 415 lbs. He had an 80" chest, and a 44" waist. He once lifted and THREW a 2700 lbs ships anchor into the Brooklyn Navy Yard harbour. To show you how poor medical science was in the first half of the 19th century when McAskill lived he died at 39 from a 'brain fever'..

Another Canadiana note: the greatest frontiersman of all-time was another Scots born Canadian. His name was Finnan McDonald. Put that name into a search window on Google, for instance, and you will find the 8,000 words I have there about him. Speaking of wrestling, this dude once wrestled a bull bison, on the ground. It happened June 2, 1827 near Carlton Hse. Saskatchewan.. That's now known at Ft. Carlton Historic Site.

I'm a 68 year-old retiree, and would be writer, so; if you want to palaver some more contact me below !!
