Pound for Pound an Inspiration

You may not know of Joe Rollino, you may not know that Mighty Joe was 104 years young but appeared and acted to be decades younger.  He was a famed strongman, able to perform amazing feats of strength and stamina.  He was a vegetarian, avid health nut and man of many accomplishments  -- a true New Yorker.

People admired and adored him, not just for his longevity but the conviction he had in living a long, active lifestyle.  In his prime he weighed between 125 and 150 pounds and stood at barely 5' 5".  Pound for pound, experts say, he was the strongest man of his time.

Unfortunately, yesterday he was struck down in an unfortunate accident by a vehicle in Brooklyn, and died soon thereafter.  They don't make them like him anymore.
