1980s Nostalgia Thread

The 80s were pretty early for me, but a lot of the cool stuff from the 80s carried over into the 90s for me. Nothing was better than TMNT and Masters of the Universe.

    I was born in '79, so the 80s cartoons like He-Man was a big one for me as well.

     

    Lets not forget Transformers...

     

    Transformers (1984)

    Always like the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon. Who knew it would end up being a game for wierdo's to play!

    Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, Married with Children.

    Friends in school would get together to watch The Simpsons on Sunday night and when it moved to I think Thursday...wuuut?

     

    First real sports memories back then.  Pete Rose breaking the record. The Hoo Hoo Hoosiers behind Steve Alford, Garrett, Thomas, Smart, et all beating Syracuse in a thriller!

     


    3 point line in HS came into play. Remember the BB coach at lunch one day when we were shooting hoops measure to where the line would be!

    I have 20-30 of the original Transformers  in boxes. I had a guy offer me 5k for all of them. The memories are worth more that the toys at this point. 

    80s Hair bands is a big memory for me.

    40 years ago today

    That's a good one!  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I think a lot of people today don't realize that that was NOT the gold medal game. Because it was round robin format, the US still had to win one more (against Finland) to win the gold.  
     

    I just found this from an article at sportingnews.com:

    Had the United States not climbed out of a 2-1 hole entering the third period of that game against Finland 36 years ago, it not only would have lost the gold medal, but let the Soviet Union win its fifth straight.”

    The TV show was based on the game, not the other way around.
