A program celebrating 100 years of Michigan Football.
And one of the many many Mad Magazines that I've saved!
50 Cents...CHEAP! hehehehe.
Ooooh Oooooh Mr. Kott-Air!!!!
And who was your favorite Sweat-Hog?
Peace...!!!

Ah, man... I loved that show, lol. I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite, but I suppose Freddy "Boom Boom" Washington would have to be my pick of the day. :D "Hi, there..."

Monkey Man said...

"Up your nose with a rubber hose." And to think that was funny back then. Vinnie Barbarino. Truth be known I really didn't watch the show much but it is a part of Americana.

Prayer Girl said...

I remember plenty of Mad magazines about the house, but it was my brother who was the bigger fan.

Memories - sweet memories.

I didn't watch it much, but I have to confess that I thought Vinnie was pretty cute. Fess up -- how many boxes of Mad magazines do you have stashed?:)

Cindy said...

Freddie "Boom Boom" Washington.

Mr. Haney do you happen to have memorabilia from the rock group Yes? If you do I'll be utterly impressed.


I have 1 -3 of the Trixi Belden series of books, you wouldn't happen to own any of those would you????

If so "Have I got a deal for you" :)Hey I don't think Mr. Haney owns the rights to that phrase does he lol

Welcome Back Kotter...I can still sing the theme song. One of my favorite shows. What's up with 1977 this week? How do you find this stuff when you need it?

(ps:I didn't bank the timeshare because I was gonna go...changed my mind)

We heard the song "Welcome Back" on the radio the other day and when I tried to explain the premise of the show, my kids were just baffled.

the walking man said...

Did you always fold the back cover of MAD? I did, but then I didn't save any of them either.

Akelamalu said...

We used to get Mad magazines here too.

I wait for Wednesdays, just to see what memory you will jog in my brain! 1977- When you could still haul your own beer in the stadium..
My Mom wouldn't let read Mad magazine in the house, so I always read it at the one chair barber shop I went to... Mrs. Kotter was hot!

Shadow said...

okay, i officially don't know who or what you're talking about. other than mad magazine...

petra michelle; Whose role is it anyway? said...

I can remember my brothers with their collection! I had a crush on the Mad boy! ;)

Lulda Casadaga said...

Well, I must admit I was hot for Teacher...Mr. Kotter got my vote! :P I loved the Mad Mags...wasn't too crazy about 1977 though...LOL

Lynn said...

Vinnie Barberino of course. :) Oh to have a .50 mag again.

Am so flattered for the invitation! Enjoy your Friday 55's very much! But my life is so irregular it requires a laxative! ;)

You probably get information for diabetes. But I'll give you
dlife.com just in case you're interested. A savvy sight! I found out cherries are best for gout my mom used to get ALL of the time and rarely does now with cherry caplets you can get at a GNC or natural health food's store. But cherries help diabetes! You can't beat those pits! Stay well, Galen! :))

Mama Zen said...

Vinnie Barbarino, of course!

clean and crazy said...

we were just talking about another 70's classic do you remember "WKRP in Cincinnati" with lonni anderson. that was funny or the barney miller episode where they had hasheesh laced brownies and the one stoned cop goes "mooshy, mooshy, mooshy" that was so funny.

G-Man said...
