This Magic Moment

“So I was going through some old photos and I found this. My Dad holding Magic Johnson and looking incredibly badass while doing it. A little backstory. My Dad was good friends with Jerry Buss’ niece, and was invited to a Laker’s picnic. He played volleyball all his life and Magic, along with a few others, wanted to test his skills. He played Magic and as he was going up for a spike, my Dad slammed it back into his face to win the game. Magic came up to him after, grabbed him and said, “Next time, you’re on my team.” They both had a good laugh and my Dad swooped him up into his arms.”

Blowing Up

“Our Cub Scout troop attended a Montreal Expos’ game at the Olympic Stadium, probably around 1980. Before the game they had us take our picture with former players during an “old-timers” picture event. Montreal was more of a hockey town, so I couldn’t tell you who these guys were. I guess I was just happy to have my new inflatable friend, albeit facing the wrong direction. My wife refers to this as my first experience with a blow up doll.”

Daisy Duke

“When I was 8 years old, I got to meet ‘Daisy Duke.’ I didn’t realize my zipper was down until we got the film developed. When I brought the photo to school to show my friends, I kept it in an envelope and only pulled it out part way so they couldn’t see my open fly.”

Yeah Yeah Yeah

“This is a photo of me (front left), my little brother (front right), my older sister and her older boyfriend taken in her bedroom sometime in summer 1984. I know the era because of the Van Halen posters on the wall and the RUSH pins on my shirt. I don’t remember why we posed for this picture- and I REALLY don’t know why my little brother and I look like we’re modeling for young punk magazine! It’s a strange little scene there. The Van Halen posters really crack me up.”
