Now I want some BBQ, too.  I'm tied up at lunch today, but maybe tomorrow.

HBO and Cinemax played that movie 47 times a month in 1984.  I'm sure every young man my age remembers Lea Thompson and the incredible impression she made in that movie.  By the time she starred as Michael J. Fox's mom in "Back to the Future" the next year, she was already right up there with Fast Time's Jennifer Jason Leigh and Phoebe Cates as the talented young actresses that moved a generation.  I remember I videotaped "All the Right Moves" and watched the cold night part a few times.
Craig T Nelson may have been the coach.  I'm not sure.  All I really remember is Lea Thompson.  A fine actress.  She stole the show.
And I just remembered another wonderful (alas, non-football movie) I watched beaucoup times on '80s HBO and Cinemax.   The Hitcher with Rutger Hauer (of Blade Runner fame) and either Lea Thompson or Jennifer Jason Leigh (I can't remember which).   The role wasn't quite as revealing but it was quite compelling.
Now I'm thinking of 1980s HBO and Cinemax.   Cost $45/month which seemed outrageous but was worth every penny.

Kim Bassinger in just about anything
Rachel Ward
ah... the 80s.
Yeah. My early technical projects were attempts to "improve" the reception of the myriad cable channels my parents refused to pay for (i.e.: all of them past the minimum tier). I was not doing it to see the sports.
I remember playing "Football" on the Atari 2600 (just called the "Atari" at the time). The field was a top-to-bottom series of alternating light and dark green lines. There were 3 players to a team, and they were all apparently eligible. By scale, each player would also be roughly 14 feet tall, but that's the least problem. You'd "secretly" call your play of run right, run left, pass or punt, then run it against whatever the defense called. You had limited control of the players, but could "steer" the ball like nobody's business. A good player could curve a pass around a couple defenders.
A good way to kill the evening until it was time to see if the new RF mods could tune in Cinemax when "Softly from Paris" came on.

gentlemen shouldn't wear hats or caps inside Bonedaddy's but it's ok to wear jeans to church?
I play drums in church. I wear jeans and a black t-shirt typically. Makes up for all the being quiet I had to do as a youth.
Turns out, old school Vision Streetwear hightops are the most comfortable drumming shoe I've found! Good support with a wiggly sole. It's also flat so I can swap out jingles or shaker accessories when playing djembe or congas.

I wore Converse All Star (Chuck Taylor) high tops back in the day.  Actually, I still do.

Jack Purcell Blue Tips.



I think that the soles were light tan back then, though.

My afluent yankee gf at the time bought me a pair of blue Nike track shoes in 1982 when I was 20.  By the time I was 30 I was wearing solid black Adidas high tops.

But before I was 20 I never wore brand name shoes.  I just wore whatever was on sale at Gulf Mart or Woolco or Sage.  We didn’t have Targets or Walmarts then.  And I grew up poor.  Momma wasn’t gonna buy me gym shoes at Dillards or Beall’s.

Most of the time, growing up, I wore these rough suede shoes with crepe soles called Chucka Boots.

My affluent yankee gf also introduced me to Hush Puppies.

She was a brand conscious little girl.

Small world.  I grilled those center cut pork steaks HEB dry rubs.  Good stuff.  Cheap, tender, tasty.

I just remembered another long forgotten 70s wardrobe phrase.

I used to complement my chukka boots with a CPO jacket.

YCPO jacket



Course the staples of my wardrobe 1976 - 1980 were 28 x 34 Levi Big Bellbottom jeans and black pocket T shirts.

They were the earmarks of the “cool” kids and when I say cool, I don’t mean hip, trendy or in style.  In the ‘70s when somebody asked you if you were cool, it meant you wouldn’t’ object or freak out if they passed you a J.
