Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is teasing fans of his team and the opposition. On Monday he tweeted--because he likes to do that you know--that the team may be looking to sign a man mountain he referred to as 'The Icelander.'
That's the huge dude in the picture in case you are wondering.
Hafthor Bjornsson is the man-mountain's name and for now at least he is a Strongman competitor. You know--that competition where guys leg press a ton of kids (literally 2000 pounds of them I believe), lift VW bugs for repetition and drag airliners, buses, and/or trains because they can (among other totally awesome things).
From the looks of him he's pretty good at it too. Standing 6'9" and weighing in at around 419 pounds (yes, that is a 4) he can bench press over 500 pounds, squat close to 800, and dead lift almost 900 pounds.
He's been Iceland's strongest man for the last couple of years, and last year came in third at the World's Strongest Man competition.
So is anyone imagining him tossing around those tiny little offensive linemen around other than me?....
