    God I loved RAD. Lori Laughlin was my first "crush" as a pre teen after watching that movie. About 8 years ago I was at Woodward in PA skating with a group of "old guys" and we were in the Cloud 9 building riding the vert ramp. As we climb the stairs I see a BMX guy throwing flairs and busting huge airs. We get on the deck and I realize it's Dennis McKoy! He was my idol when I rode and my last bike was a Haro Master (the teal and blues color one) that DMC rode. We talked for about 30 minuets and rode for another hour together then went back to the bungalow he was staying in for some beers. Such a cool dude.

    she lived around the corner from me in Hauppauge in the early 80s. I remember going around door to door for fund raising once and her mom invited me into the foyer while she got the money for her order. There were all these pictures everywhere of her ... it was kinda weird.
