    Go, Buster, go! Ah, swimming loss was Hollywood’s g -, no, it was just swimming’s loss… Bwahahaha! Wicked!
    Boy, you don’t get many Busters now, do you? Or Chesters or Roscoes or Herberts or Ernests!

    Who new so many web footed ones made it from glistening pool to silver screen… Not so other sports stars though.
    I’m sure you will take that as a gauntlet and now prove me wrong!

    A few sports stars (or, at least, sportspeople) who made it to the screen – Chuck Connors (baseball), Fred Williamson (football), one Orenthal James “O. J.” Simpson (ugh – also football, John “Marion Morrison” Wayne (college football, I think), Vinnie “I Can’t Believe He Had Some Success As An “Actor” ” Jones (soccer), Vijay Amritaj (tennis), Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (professional wrestling…maybe not a “sport”!)… Ha, I’ve bored you enough!
