    Anyone else notice in the strongman commercials met-rx was putting up pictures of marunde competing and captioned them as "sponsored athlete".
    Found that kind of weird/inappropriate to be using someone's likeness even after they've died to sell your product...
    :ugh:

    probably, im just pointing out how lazy/inconsiderate it is of espn/met-rx to still be using those commercials.

    was it the commercial for their new dirt flavored protein bar? Man, I've been wanting to see that

    I heard they got Mariusz Pudzianowski to do it

    Jesse Marundes website is still sponsored by Met-Rx. I believe his wife and parents run it now.

    Shit I cant watch anymore. Marundes attitude is fucking amazing and the friendship/rivalry with Pudz had the possibility of being Epic.
