Pitbull people will bring up long dead pitbulls. So? And your point is? A Mastiff was in the movie Sandlot but I never bring that up. Is it because they can't find any well bred, well trained, well socialized Pitbulls of current famous people? Can we say Rachael Ray?
Now don't get me wrong. I have met pitbulls that didn't try to go for my jugular but I would not trust any dog but my own as I know their personalities.
