THE IRONMAN HAS MANY THINGS HE LOVES TO DO THAT HAVE LITTLE TO DO WITH WOMEN

Do you love red wines ~ not just to drink but knowing where they come from, what kind of grapes they're vinted from, which ones to drink with what foods? Do you love the colors of the bottles they come in, the look of their labels, their very names ~ merlot, bordeaux, burgundy — and their makers — Mondavi, Rothchild, Chateau Neuf du Pape?

That's a good sign. Or do you love fishing and all the things that go with it — the different strengths of the lines, the variety of sinkers and lures, spotting a brook along a country road and just knowing in your heart that trout are darting through it?

An Ironman has passions in his life other than women. If he didn't, he'd be a Casanova, a Don Juan, a Lothario...and that's a different type altogether.

Maybe there's a book in it. The Latin Lover. Maybe I'll write it one day. How to devote every single moment in your life toward the seduction of women. But in truth my personal prejudice is with the Iron Man, the strong, silent type, the man of integrity and character, Lou Gehrig, The Duke (whom I spent a lot of time working with back in the late 70's and I'll tell you about one day), Walter Payton, Cal Ripken.

The difference is, while the Don Juan type pursues women, is continuously wooing and courting and serenading them, the Ironman is a character of such confident appeal that women are drawn to him. He does not fall all over himself chasing them.

You see, I believe women, in their hearts, are more drawn to a man who does not seem to need them all that much than to one whose whole life seems to be a study in their very gender.
