I really think he is an outstanding individual. My son who was 11 at the time wanted to meet Big T watched him from the ropes while he talked about post game. He looked at my son and called him over and asked if he wanted a signature and a picture. Made my son so happy.

One of the kindest sports figures I have ever read about. Even his portrait for the article shows a man of love and kindness. What a great choice!

I had the great pleasure to work with Thurl Bailey on a community educational project many years ago.

What a fine, fine man!

Never met the man but I've seen him a few times on tv and was very impressed with how he handled himself. He came across as a very likable and honest person so I don't doubt but that he's a great pick for the job. I hope he ends up being in politics someday. Our country sure needs good men like him. Go Mr. Bailey!!!

Thurl Bailey is a "good man" for any job.. Why? ... Because he IS a good man!

Thurl came into the homeless shelter, with other players at the time, for a day of service when I worked there many moons ago. He was so gracious and not only took the time but went out of his way to talk with our residents, well more listen to their stories then talk about himself. A class act all around.
