While I am not completely new to the media, having written a few sports stories for the local newspaper and being a highly unpaid intern for morning radio on the old 99X (99.7 FM — everything alternative, including my lifestyle), I am new to blogging. To introduce myself, I would first like to express how much I love those “Most Interesting Man in the World” commercials.
Of course, those commercials would cease to exist if it weren’t for the man behind the scenes.
There was a man who inspired such witty comments as, “He’s been the best man at weddings of people he’s never met.” Naturally I am referring to the man who will be getting most of the praise from the bloggers on this site. The man who, without him, nothing would exist in this universe: Burt Reynolds.
Had Burt Reynolds never been born, the hillbilly would still be raping that fat guy from Deliverance. Perhaps his mustache has given him mystical powers that enable him to perform supernatural automobile maneuvers in a black Trans Am (Smokey and the Bandit) or an ambulance (Cannonball Run). Maybe he is an alien from a distant galaxy where all life forms are perfect physical specimens. Whatever his secret, I feel confident when I refer to “The Burt” as the sexiest person the universe has seen or ever will see.
I could go on and on about the merits of Mr. Reynolds, but it is getting late and I need to go let my cat, named Burt Reynolds, inside. I hope all you bloggers and bloggettes enjoy our future writings. I will end this blog the way I should – but probably will not – end all my future posts… with a hearty “Hail Burt!”
