Is it just me or did Evan come across a bit pretentious in this last video? I mean who says something like this, "At a certain point birthday parties are for women and children." WTF? If someone wants to celebrate their birthday, and that makes them happy, more power to them.
I usually appreciate Evan's perspective, but to me he came across pretty cynical.
My thoughts are if it makes you happy do it. If you want to show off as a bodybuilder who cares? If Evan shows off at a grocery store 80% of the population will think, "That dude is taking a shit ton of steroids." Of course he doesn't want that attention. That could get him in pretty big trouble.
But why make the rest of us feel like jackasses cause we wear tank tops from time to time?
I don't know if everyone is aware of a simple notion: Most people do things (bodybuilding, basketball, powerlifting) for more than one reason. Each person usually has a unique group of things that motivate them from attention to money to fun to challenging themselves to family and the list goes on. Evan stated his personal opinions in a video that was made about him. He doesn't sound like an "ass" he sounds like an individual. Something that other people should start trying to be. I'll bodybuild for the LAAADDIIIESSSSS if I want, you can bodybuild for G4P opportunities if you want. Who gives a fuck.
