The Item: IFBB Pro League Legends Update, Special Appearances, Andrew Oye's IFBB Pro Athletes Roundup

The Scoop:
Just Reported: Over the Labor Day weekend, the 11th Annual Muscle Beach Hall of Fame (held in conjunction with the Muscle Beach Bodybuilding Championships contest) inducted a new member on Venice Beach in California - Hollywood actor and professional bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno.   

The "So What?": "Pumping Iron" star, AAU Mr. America, 2-time Mr. Universe, TV's "Incredible Hulk" actor, Mr. Olympia contender and retired IFBB Pro Lou Ferrigno was honored with his Muscle Beach Hall of Fame induction by Stan Lee (of Marvel Comics) in the presence of his wife and three children. As reported in a recent IFBB Pro Athletes Roundup of  "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," Ferrigno is also prepping to debut his large-scale fitness event dubbed Ferrigno Legacy (which will bolster the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series).

Andrew Oye's Verdict:
A couple of years ago, I interviewed Lou Ferrigno for MUSCLE INK Magazine, reported on his Chamber of Commerce guest-speaking engagement, and even had a bit part in his latest superhero short-film TV-movie. I congratulate the man (who I'm sure will be at the upcoming 2013 IFBB Pro League Olympia Weekend in Las Vegas) as he joins past MBHOF inductees: Fitness Icon Jack LaLanne, Bodybuilding & Publishing Pioneer Joe Weider, first-ever Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Larry Scott, 3-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Frank Zane, 3-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Franco Columbu, first-ever IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Champion IFBB Pro Rich Gaspari, 8-time Ms. Olympia IFBB Pro Lenda Murray, 6-time Ms. Olympia IFBB Pro Cory Everson, 2-time Ms. Olympia IFBB Pro Rachel McLish, 1983 Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Samir Bannout, 2-time Night of Champions Winner IFBB Pro Albert Beckles, Gold's Gym Founder Joe Gold, and IFBB Pro League athletes, Mr. Universe and/or Mr. America champion bodybuilders Chet Yorton, Reg Park, Reg Lewis, Bill Pearl, Bill Grant, Steve Reeves, Dave Draper, Dennis Tinerino, Eddie Giuliani, Tony Pearson, Don Howorth, among others.
