Re: Steven Seagal Lawman

Well, I finally saw the show.

It was about what I expected.

Steven Seagal is an interesting man. I see so much talent (ok, not for acting) and discipline, mastery in fact, but something went wrong somewhere along the line. And I still don't understand why he can't apply some of that discipline and lose some weight.

For what it is worth, I'd like to see him come back to aikido full-time. I think he has a lot to offer.

One thing I will tell you for sure, Seagal can shoot!

Putting a bullet in a bullet hole isn't easy. I've tried many times.

Probably 12 or 13 years ago, I had heard that Seagal was quite the marksman and was talking to my step-father (retired cop/director of the local police academy) about it. He said it's expensive to become a good shooter and a guy like Seagal has the money to do it.

Man, I'll tell you the older I get, the more I realize that guy was right about almost everything!
