    Tom Laughlin (Billy Jack) dies

    Had no clue he was 81. Most of you probably never heard of Billy Jack. An incredibly corny movie that was a big hit in 1971.

    And if you don't like it....I'm going to take my left foot and hit you right in your face. And there's not a darn thing you can do about it.....

    Im sure Dr Fever began to medicate upon hearing this news.

    Seriously though i remember watching it as a youngster and loving it. Then as an adult i watched it again and realizing it was quite cheesy. Was a generational hit.

    He was a year older than Peter O'Toole. Hard to believe.

    I remember the movie well.

    Some of the worst acting I've ever seen in a movie.

    But I'd never tell Laughlin that to his face.

    If you had he would have taken his right foot and whopped you on the right side of your face and there isn't a damn thing you could have done about it
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.
