Randy Parker Hall of Fame: Joe Louis


Joe Louis is an American icon. He fought in WWII and famously said "whatever is wrong with America ain't nothing Hitler can fix".
One tough hombre. But more than this Joe Louis never trash talked nor acted in an unsportsmanlike way. People would goad him and say nasty things like most athletes do today. All Joe Loius would say, over and over was "I'll be there and I'll be on time". Then he would commence to pound the big mouths into oblivion. For this wonderful legacy of shutting the big mouths up with dignity, Joe Louis will forever be in the Randy Parker Hall of Fame.

I second the nomination by ArmChairEconomist.
