Happy Birthday Tully Blanchard!

Original 4 Horsemen, "That sonofabitch" Tully Blanchard turns 61 years old day.  Now I've never seen much of his pre-Horsemen work, but as a member of that group he was absolutely phenomenal.

When he and Arn took off to WWF/WWE and were paired with Bobby "The Brain" Heenan as the Brain Busters his excellence continued.  

Here's arguably my favorite thing I ever watched. An absolute classic moment from TBS that Dad and I actually kept on VHS for years. Unfortunately, we finally misplaced that tape, but thanks to the wonders of YouTube we can still see it here.

Anyhow, Tully was smug greatness and his "I Quit!" match at Starrcade '85 with Magnum TA is possibly my favorite match of all-time.
