Memories of Childhood

There's a new activity
taking place here at our house
that is apparently taking the rest
of America by storm as well.

Many of us remember this
from our childhoods....

Re-enter:
AMERICAN GLADIATORS!

That's right, ladies and germs,
the show is back and I have to say,
it is better than I remember.

Tonight found two adults
and three kids on a king size bed,
hollering and cheering and jumping around,
generally FREAKING and having a blast.

Just in case you haven't tuned in,
let me introduce you to a few of the Gladiators:


This one is Crush:
She is actually quite pretty.
She has this nifty hairstyle that is short in the back and gets longer
as it comes to the front.
Chris is particularly enamored of Crush.

This is Hellga:
Did you note the double L's in Hellga?
Or as my kids would say "H, E, double hockey sticks."
Hellga is one large, imposing woman.
I would drop a few bricks if I met her on the street for sure.

This one is Mayhem:
He scares the crap out of me.
I can't even watch him on the television without a hand over my eyes.

Finally, this is Titan:
I think Titan looks ridiculous.
He looks like a Ken doll on steroids.
He wears more makeup than a woman in a Las Vegas cathouse.

So, if you haven't tuned in to AG yet,
go ahead and TIVO it.
It is a fun hour of TV.

LOL!!! I have seen the commercials, but haven't gotten to watch it yet. But, before I read your comments about Titan just from looking at his picture, my first thought was puh-leeze! I mean, come on! Ken doll on steroids is right. And the name? uh-huh.

But Crush actually is quite pretty. Chris has good taste.

Please shoot me if I watch American Gladiators. Reality TV is getting more and more ridiculous. Bring back the writers!

Hey Rich,

This coming from the man who introduced me to the show "Banzai"??

Bowing down to your matureness,
