Personal Quote:

My dad told me there's no difference between a black snake and a white snake. They both bite.


His first name was originally Thoroughgood, but in his early years of school, he hated spelling it out. When he was in the second or third grade, he got his mother to legally shorten it to Thurgood. See more »
