So I was driving to work the other day when I started to day dream about bacon. It’s delicious! And it’s a universal topping that instantly transforms practically any meal into a gourmet delicacy worthy of the people’s pickiest pallets. From the breakfast table, to hoagies, to meatloaf, to salad, to ice cream, to heck…even dog’s have Beggin Strips! That’s when it hit me! I thought…why not pay homage to this grand American institution by having an American Muscle Bacon…err Begging contest!

So what exactly is a Begging Contest? That’s easy…it is exactly what it sounds like. I list a prize. You beg for it. The best beggar wins! Can it be that simple? Well, the competition is probably going to be pretty fierce on this one, so you better get real creative! I want to hear sob stories, crazy wacky stories, lists of herculean feats you have performed in the name of American Muscle, etc. etc. etc.! They can be true stories, or they can be fully loaded fictitious fallacies, but they must all include why I should pick you of all people to be the chosen one to win a prize! The top three entries will be featured on our site and they will receive super sweet prizes!

Now on to the really good part…the prizes:

  • 1st Prize:

    • $150 American Muscle Gift Certificate

    • American Muscle Swag Pack
  • 2nd Prize:
    • $100 American Muscle Gift Certificate

    • American Muscle Swag Pack
  • 3rd Prize:
    • $50 American Muscle Gift Certificate

    • American Muscle Swag Pack

(American Muscle Swag Pack Includes: T-Shirt, Sweatshirt, Calendar, and Decals for your car!)


Still unclear about what you are supposed to do? Check out this example of what I would say is a top-notch entry for this contest:

Example: “One day in 3rd grade I was sucker punched in the back of the head and knocked out cold in the parking lot. When I came to, the first car I saw was a Mustang GT and ever since then I have been obsessed with Mustangs! Now I own 5 Mustangs and outfit all of them solely at American Muscle. Now I am facing an extremely difficult decision on whether to buy my wife an anniversary present or get new springs for my newest Mustang. Please please please let me win a prize so I can use that gift certificate to help pay for new control arms to go along with those springs! And/or get my wife something for her anniversary…if I really have to.”

AmericanMuscle.com donation to Homes for Our Troops benefits Massachusetts soldier

Back in July, AmericanMuscle.com donated 5% of every sale on one day to Homes for Our Troops. HFOT is an organization that assists returning servicemen and women that have been severely injured as they selflessly serve our country. The organization, working with donations of money, building materials and professional labor, ­coordinates the process of building a new home or adapting an existing home for handicapped accessibility.

AmericanMuscle.com raised more than $2100 for Homes for Our Troops during the event. And Homes for Our Troops has been kind enough to keep us updated on ­where our donation was used.

On October 10, 2007, Homes for Our Troops held a ground-breaking ceremony in Plymouth, MA, at the site where a new handicapped accessible house would be built for SGT Brian Fountaine of the US Army.



SGT Brian Fountaine

US Army

SGT Fountaine, a 24-year-old tank commander from Dorchester, MA, lost both legs below the knee in June 2006, in Baghdad, Iraq, when an improvised explosive device (IED) exploded under the vehicle he was riding in. Fountaine was a member of the First Brigade Combat Team of the Fourth Infantry Division and was serving his second tour of duty — a tour he volunteered for. During his first deployment, his unit came under attack almost daily from mortars and rifle fire, but Brian still volunteered for dangerous missions. The risk of permanent injury or death was huge, but SGT Fountaine said, "I was a soldier. I expected…either a loss of limb or a loss of life."

The explosion that detonated beneath the Humvee carrying SGT Fountaine was the fifth time that he had survived an IED. Though he survived, he knew this time would be different when he found himself in the dirt beside the truck, looking at his mangled feet and fractured legs.

"I knew I would become some sort of an amputee," said Fountaine, massaging the stumps of his legs, amputated 10 inches below the knees. ”I won’t be able to feel the grass between my feet or the sand under my toes, but the important thing is I still have my life."

SGT Fountaine still has his life, and is able to walk with the help of prosthetics, but he still needs to use his wheelchair when the prosthetics become too painful.

Because of this, and because of his enormous sacrifice and his willingness to volunteer himself for the most dangerous missions, Homes for Our Troops is in the process of building SGT Fountaine and his family a wheelchair accessible house. This new home — scheduled to be completed in March, 2008 — will allow him to deal with the many challenges that come with living with prosthetics and adjusting to a new way of life. His n­ew home in Plymouth, MA allows him the independence he fought for, while still being close to his family in Dorchester, MA.



The walls of SGT Brian Fountaine’s new home going up! 

Looking more and more like a home.


We at AmericanMuscle.com are honored to have been able to contribute to both Homes for Our Troops and SGT Fountaine. We can think of no organization that deserves it more.
