You remember that part in Tombstone where Johnny Ringo is drunk and starts yelling at Wyatt Earp and all the other guys and he asks them: "Do any of you sons of bitches have the guts to play for blood?" To which Doc Holliday emerges from his barber's chair and replies: "I'm your huckleberry." Well, that's me. That's my whole life.
