  • Greg

    I feel old now lol

    • db3300

      You think you feel old? I had #22 when it was Felix instead of Garfield.

    • Cake is a Lie

      Im 28. I love this post.

  • Dagoth WIt

    #3 I had a massive jigsaw puzzle of these guys that my dad had framed. I think it's still in storage somewhere.

    • Mike

      I dont think you could hand pick a team of five from any era, any time that would beat this crew.

      • Anjin-San

        I never understood why Laettner was there..

        • Alex

          Its because they had decided to have one college player on the team. It came down to Laettner or Shaquille O'Neal, I believe, and Laettner had just won his second consecutive national title at Duke and had been named the Naismith Player of the Year. At the time, he was the obvious choice.

          • rbfn04

            and, Laettner was white

          • zym

            Yes, except that it should have been Shaq. He was single-handedly carrying LSU that year, where Duke was Duke. It was also in the Golden Era of Duke Salad Eating among the media.

            PS, Fuck Duke.

            • Alex

              Shaq was *clearly* the better player, but that wasn't the point. Laettner was college basetball's poster child at that time. Back-to-back national championships, including the 92 East Regional Final against Kentucky and multiple POTY awards- neither was going to see the court with that team, so they picked the guy that was (at the time) the best PR move.

              • zym

                I know you're right, but still, fuck Duke.

                Do love this discussion is still going on near 20 years.

                • hmna

                  I remember that all too well. I thought the Laettner was at best the third choice for the token college student. Shaq first, Alonzo Mourning second. And yeah, fuck Dook.

      • Slauter

        100% agreed Mike. This is a picture of the best team, in any sport – ever assembled.

    • geez

      Who are number 13 and the guy behind Jordan?.

      • XOS2

        laettner and chris mullen…

  • Nina

    I don't know what half these pictures are of. Guess I missed out by not growing up in the US! 😛

    • Israelmc

      you poor thing, if you need me I'd be happy to explain every one of them 😉

    • Blake

      Yea, you can call us trendy, but if you were born anywhere between 1978-1983, your childhood was awesome…of course not being born between those years doesn't make you any less awesome

      • mystery_guest

        1974… and my childhood was awesome too.

        • http://www.myspace.com/theamericanmaniacs BentWrenches

          1964 and my childhood is still awesome

      • Nina

    Dream Team F.T.W.! I can name like half of that team. I guarantee I couldn't name half of any current team.

    • julietromeobravo

      Correction – Dream team + christian laettner

      • Scotty P.

        Agreed. He is the only one of these guys who doesn't belong in the NBA HOF.

    • Thomas

      Yeah. John Stockton in front! i still own a shirt of John which a friend bought for me when he visited the US of A years ago. Reg from Switzerland 🙂

      • lego

        if you can only name half of the dream team and are a male, you should be punched in the nuts.

    • Dave M.

      from left to right:
      Ewing, Laettner, Magic, Robinson, Malone
      Bird, Jordan, Chuck Daly (Coach), Barkley, Mullins
      Pippen, Stockton, Drexler

      if you only know half of that team you should be ashamed

      • clay

        Mullins was the only one I couldn't remember.

  • Lower

    What a book. Dynomite Read.

  • http://thechive.com/ bkfrijoles

    #15 Fred looks like a Pedophilia

  • Catence

    #37 – isn't that the classic "drug" episode? It would obviously be too racy to be real drugs so she got addicted to caffeine pills instead. haha

    • Detractor

      "I'm so excited, I'm so excited, I'm so excited…I'm so scared…." Classic.

    • ChiveTurkey

      F, Marry, Kill: F Jessie, Marry Kelly, Kill Lisa

      • Cupper

        F Lisa – M Kelly – K Jessie

      • Guest commenter

        F: Jessie, Marry Lisa (marry her again), Kill Kelly (but not the 90210 version, that version swaps places with Jessie (but not the Dreamgirls Jessie, that one switches places with Kelly. . . /head asplode))

    • Jfrost

      Ha ha, I remember that now! I grew up thinking you could get addicted to caffeine!

      • Ali

        that's because you can lol

  • Nate

    #36 You'll be missed.

    Go. Deliver that Flying Elbow Drop from the top turnbuckle in the sky.

  • Jon

    #12 Bill Nye, thank you for enriching my childhood with science. I miss you.

    • E.V.L.

      Uhmm … Bill Nye did not die – that was a fake article on theOnion

      • Detractor

        Who said he died? It says I miss you, not RIP.

        • E.V.L.

          Oh well, my bad then but usually when someone speaks of a celebrity with the words "I miss you", or whatever, it's because the person has passed.

      • Jon

        oh well thats good news i thought he was dead lol

    • amrith777

      Bill Nye rocks!!

    • dub

      Without fail, this guy always makes me smile. What a cool fucking dude.

    • Wally

      Bill is alive and well on youtube. I show him to my gr 8 science classes. I find myself laughing to myself through them, and my students think I'm as corny as he is/was . . .

      • douche

      but what about SNL's "Clear Gravy" sketch, I'm starting to feel like I imagined that one because no one I talk to remembers it.

      • pwndu232

        Oh, no. You didn't. It was real. I remember it too.

        Unless, of course, we had the same hallucination…
