What are you talking about? Good deadlifters don't "pick up" the weight. They just scream at it until it gets scared and goes up on its own. Until that sports announcer realizes this, he will be stuck with a measly deadlift.

The reason the world record deadlifts are made by big, burly guys isn't because they're strong - it's because they're intimidating.
