The Peter Mansbridge Armwrestling Challenge

08 Jul, 2009

A couple years ago I was at a business conference where Peter Mansbridge was the keynote speaker. He welcomed people to get their photos taken with him but I wanted more than that.

I challenged Peter Mansbridge to an arm wrestling match. He agreed, and according to this photo I think I won.

Last night I made an appearance on CBC’s The National. Unfortunately I did not get a rematch out of it. Haha.

    Hi Greg, Great game, I wish we could settle all differences and problems though
    armwrestling, the would would become a better place then… should you ever come
    to Berlin – Germany, please let me know. I would like to show you around. And just
    maybe, the two of us could armwrestle over a beer or two. But I m only a beginner.
    Keep up the good reports…. greeetings from Berlin – Germany
