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

The Scoop: Just Announced: Muscle-heads meet gear-heads when 8-time Mr. Olympia and retired IFBB Pro Ronnie Coleman and Bio-Engineered Supplements and Nutrition Inc. (BSN) make an exclusive appearance on the popular cable TV show "American Chopper." The episode will document the building of a custom-fabrication, one-of-kind chopper. "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report" has learned the show will feature cameo appearances by athletes, including Anthony Presciano and Ronnie Coleman. Tune in to the TLC network this week (April 24th) to watch father and sons - the Teutuls - and the Orange County Chopper (OCC) crew build the cool bike.

The "So What?": A replica of the motorcycle was commissioned and 100% of the proceeds from its sale will be donated to the Warrior Transition Unit of a New York hospital. "We really wanted to do something to give back to the soldiers who put their lives on the line every day protecting our country," says BSN VP Scott James. "We shot the bike's unveiling at a soldier's monument in West Point, NY, near the Keller Army Community Hospital and it made us all feel really proud."

Andrew Oye's Verdict: Ronnie Coleman is a legendary physique inspiration to many IFBB Pro League athletes and aspiring pro bodybuilders. He won the IFBB Pro Arnold Classic Championships in 2001 After earning more Sandow trophies than 7-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger and tying the record of IFBB Pro Lee Haney, the IFBB Hall of Fame member made his emotional, official exit from the competitive bodybuilding stage last year at the 2007 Mr. Olympia contest (won by IFBB Pro Jay Cutler) at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend in in Vegas. Coleman will now have to get the rush he got from competing from other sources like these special appearances and philanthropic works.
