It’s a sad day for Hi-Top Nation.
The Bandit has passed on to the great bootleg race in the sky.
The kids today just don’t understand what kind of a STAR Burt Reynolds was in the 70s and 80s.
He was a badass. An outlaw. He’d steal your car and your girl.
And before he was a Major Movie Star he was a damn good football player.
All-State in High School and roommates with Lee Corso at Florida State, Reynolds career was cut short due to injuries.
His athletic loss became America’s gain as Reynolds eventually became the biggest movie star in the world.
RIP in peace to a true American Original and all around Hi-Topper Guy.
