10 on Tuesday...

This week's Ten on Tuesday sounds tough! But, despite the fact that it is going to show off how old I am, I'm going to give it a shot...

**10 Idols/Heroes When You Were A Kid**
(in no particular order)

1. Mark Shera. (Played Dominic Luca on S.W.A.T., the TV show.) I had the biggest crush on him around the ages of 10-12. And back then I was determined to grow up and become a S.W.A.T. cop.
2. Rick Springfield. When he was on General Hospital, which Mom and I used to watch together after school. Another huge crush.
3. Larry Bowa. Didn't have a crush on him. He was just my baseball hero back in the days when I actually watched baseball.
4. David Woodley. For whatever reason, I just loved him when he quarterbacked for the Dolphins. I was so upset when he was replaced by Marino. (Yah, I got over that one fairly quickly.)
5. Stephen King. Back in high school, I devoured all his books. The Stand was my all-time favorite, and I read it several times.
6. Grandpa. This began when I was a kid, but it extends to the present day (though he died a few years ago).
7. Kate Jackson. I know she wasn't generally considered the sexiest of the Angels, but she was always my favorite. I thought she was smart and gorgeous!
8. Johnny Quest.
9. The whole Scooby Doo gang.
10. Shazam. O.K., not really, but I couldn't think of anything else. Can't even remember the name of the actor who played him, but I got his autograph at a county fair when I was a kid.

Yeah for you and your list! I loved SWAT as a kid and amazed a group of guys on a retreat once becuase to fill time we were having a name that tune on TV themes (someone had a CD) and I heard that bweep, bweep of the alarm from the beginning of SWAT!

Also, are you from the Philly area? I saw Bowa on your list, and my number one is #20, Mike Schmidt!

Oh, yeah, I'm with you on Mark Shera. I'm happy to report that I've not thought of him in years. And absolutely ditto on the smart angel Kate Jackson. Did you ever see her on The Rookies? Also cool.

Shazam? lol Wasn't Shaq in some corny movie called that in 1990 or so? Anyway, good list!

Kitty said...

OMG Shazam! I loved that show. Can barely remember it, but I loved it.

Great blog BTW.

OMG, Rick Springfield was like a dream come true when I was watching him from General Hospital. Back then I wasn't watching General Hospital, was too young to understand bit of it..but mom watched it all the time. And I would just sit and stare at Rick LOL

Happy Ten on Tuesday! Here is Mine!
