This is the man that I aspire to be.
Wealthy lawyer, Texas A&M Board of Regents member, and Kevin Sumlin-hater Tony Buzbee just made Fox for dropping $600k on a working WWII Sherman tank.
First of all, Tony is already a legend in his own right. In 2009, this dude won the largest jury verdict in history against BP. He got Rick Perry off, and has represented Jimmy Buffet, the State of Louisiana, and the Basque Government in the Kingdom of Spain (whatever the hell that is).
So obviously he’s got some coin. If I had the kind of money Tony’s got kicking around, the first thing I would buy is a tank. The worst part about being broke is watching obscene wealth wasted on boring and uncreative people. Tony’s that rare dude that knows how to live a cut above the rest.
In his interview, Tony said he would definitely be taking the Sherman “out to his ranch to blow stuff up.” This is the right decision. Think about the kick you get out of throwing fireworks off the roof. I can’t even imagine what kind of rush you’d be on firing a tank barrel a couple shots deep.
Plus there’s no greater HOA neighborhood power move than having a 35 ton war machine parked in the driveway..
