Chuck Norris!

Someone told me the other day that when Chuck Norris does a push up,he doesn't lift himself up, he's pushing the earth down (pretty funny stuff!).

I just finished reading his book "Against All Odds",the story about his life. Pretty easy read, although it probably helps if you're a Chuck fan. There were some funny parts and some sad parts as well. I had no idea he had such a rough child hood, nothing he did came easy. I really enjoyed his journey to becoming the Middle Weight Karate Champion for 6 years in a row!

The funniest thing in the whole book is when Chuck and Steve McQueen went to a dance studio, to work on Steve's flexibility, and they had to wear tights. I don't want to ruin for you, but it made me bust out laughing for a while.

The common theme in his life is he had to work harder than anyone around him to be successful. Nothing came easy. He wasn't a natural. No one handed him anything. Just hard work, sweat and he surrounded himself with good people.
