Losing is not an option.

This photo makes me think of a good friend I had growing up. He’s now very successful in every sense of the word. Makes tones of money in a very challenging and rewarding career. Married a great woman that obviously loves him. Tons of friends. This kids is probably about the same age as him now.
I also think its an awesome photo and very worthy of this site.
Rick, you are so right!
I want to adopt this child.
Cute kid, cool trophy.
The mullet with spiky top, the tie-dye shirt–in front of a tie-dye background? Classic. Too fun. These kind of pictures really need a then-and-now element. When you submit people include a current picture, folks. We need to know that you turned out alright.
Come on, Rich, this photo is hysterical! The tie dye shirt, the spiked mullet, the kid’s chubbiness, and the cherry on top- a model rocket trophy! A future AFP classic, this one checks nearly all the boxes. All it needs is a pregnant lady and an ill-placed dog.
I don’t see what’s so “awkward” about this photo. Chubby kid from the 80′s with a trophy? Probably has some proud parents that didn’t think this photo was awkward.
Agreed… the mullet is kind of funny, but this doesn’t rise to the level of awkward.
Is that a model rocketry trophy? Awesome, dude!
