Skip’s Olympia Predictions
The always insightful Skip Hill lays down his picks for top five at this year’s Mr. Olympia.
3rd Place: Branch Warren
If I’m really quiet, I’m sure I can hear a lot of you booing me right now. The thing is this: I like the guy and I like his physique, his work ethic and the fact that he is hard as hell every single time he steps on stage. Still, there is no getting around how blocky he is. He is this decade’s Rich Gaspari and anyone that knows me knows that I LOVED Gaspari when I was a teenager and wanted Rich to win the Mr O. BADLY! However, it didn’t happen for Rich and it won’t happen for Branch in my opinion. He just isn’t as pretty as my picks for the top two spots and you can’t train for pretty.
