Well, he's not really America's oldest living Olympian, now is.
 
2014-05-02 01:59:05 PM

It sounds like this guy had one hell of a good run.

He freed pistols.
 
2014-05-02 03:23:36 PM  
...that's what he wants you to think, Subby.

Slackers like him are why this once great nation is circling the drain.
 
2014-05-02 03:24:02 PM

He was too farking scared to wait for me and said
"Take your time, dude, come when you're ready"

Agreed, if you can make it passed 90, then you've had a pretty long life.

Show-off.

TheShavingofOccam123: Tuesdays


I am baffled.

So basically, this is the guy who drew the line for all those WWII veterans to step up to.
 
2014-05-02 03:48:02 PM  
Ahhh, he was from an era when men were men and women were dames an kids were pip-squeaks.

And WASP were bigoted against other white people and nationalities.

America's greatest generation says, "See ya, ya lazy good for nothing punks"

How odd is it that a life FULL of violence would last so long.  Perhaps because it was violence and not hate?

IDK but I'll be up until 3am working' on this one you bet.

I'm always late to the party. Came to say this.

The HERO tag must be on break.
 
2014-05-02 04:29:56 PM  
Was the hero tag broken?

Looks kinda like Channing Tatum......or he did.
 
2014-05-02 04:55:27 PM  
Finally!
 
2014-05-02 05:08:54 PM  
Wait, so America doesn't have an oldest living Olympian anymore?  Quick, we have appoint one before we end up in an 'Oldest Living' gap with the Russians and Chinese.

strangeluck: Agreed, if you can make it passed 90, then you've had a pretty long life.


At least 90 years long

Was he shot by a jealous husband?

Semper Fi, Old Dude.

Tell Chesty; Good night.

His offspring have to be in their 70s or 80s.

Someone call Lazarus Long.

He shot Al Brady in downtown Bangor ME in 1937. Brady was at the time #1 on the FBIs most wanted list. It was a pretty big deal.
