The Quest for the Quarter Master – Iron Game History – December, 2005

Dr. Joe Hood, a long-time lifting friend of mine from Alabama who now lives and practices in Austin, saw this item on the internet and was immediately struck by the reference to the “victim” having the reputation of being able to tear a quarter in half. Joe shares my interest in odd feats of strength, and so he quickly forwarded the item to me, adding that, “it was heartwarming to an old Alabama mountain boy like me to read about a proud old man prevailing against long odds, with the criminals getting a bit more than they bargained for.”
