I remember when the movie "
Caddyshack" came out in 1980. Who doesn't know THAT movie? We had just gotten our 1st VCR, and the concept of watching movies over and over again, and anytime you wanted, was brand new. We must have watched that movie 50 times and it never got old. Leading comedians Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight and Chevy Chase made it a culture classic! Ted died August 26th 1986, but will always be loved and remembered!

In this drawing, Ted plays "Judge Smails" who is approaching the greens keeper about a gopher he had just seen.
What made Ted so funny to me were his voice, facial expressions, laugh, and of course his lines. There are so many, but here are my favorite lines from Ted:

"Gambling is illegal at Bushwood sir, and I NEVER slice!"
(slices into the woods)
"BUY BUSHWOOD!??! You'll never be a member here!"
"Now...what the devil?"
(as Rodney Dangerfield jams to Journey on the course)
"Now...if I can just...sink THIS one? hehehe"
"Time for the old Billy Baroo! Billy, Billy, Billy....don't let me down Billy"
