Here’s One Guy With GUTS!

Posted on Monday, April 18th, 2016 by John Wood

Here’s one guy with GUTS! Cannonball Richards sets himself to stand the combined power of nine men who rammed this wooden beam into his mid-section a moment after this photo was taken. Cannonball took the blow with ease (of course!)

Frank “Cannonball” Richards – From Another Angle

Posted on Friday, November 6th, 2015 by John Wood
We’ve featured “Cannonball” Richards before. His iconic image has appeared on the cover of the Van Halen “III” album, been spoofed on an episode of the Simpsons and showed up in dozens of other pop culture references. Here’s a rare wide-angle shot of Cannonball’s feat that you probably haven’t seen though.

Frank 'Cannonball' Richards taking a sledge hammer blow to the midsection

Frank “Cannonball” Richards isn’t a household name but I’m sure you have definitely seen him before… he got his name by having a 104 pound cannonball fired into his gut on a regular basis (we’ll cover that in another post.)

You may have seen “Cannonball” Richards’ picture on the cover of the Van Halen “III” CD, or you may have caught him spoofed in an episode of The Simpsons, or maybe you have even seen the famous footage as it has been used in several commercials over the years, either way “Cannonball” Richards will go down in history as the man with the world’s hardest stomach.

Here he takes a sledge hammer blow to the midsection without so much as a wince.
