Brrrrrr, can you feel that chill, guys? We'd all best fetch our thermal undies, whack up the heating to “11 and wait out what could be a very, very long winter. I am of course referring to the repeat of Big Ramy's sensational and decisive win at the Mr. Olympia, so for now, winter is clearly here to stay.
