I'd love to see a Rockstar Prohibition era game. I'd also like to see a Rockstar pirate game, possibly influenced by me playing Black Flag right now and imagining how it could be even larger. Been really enjoying it.

Top 5 Sports Uniforms

1. Michigan Wolverines (football) - the iconic helmet. Maize & Blue. Did you really think I was going to go with anything else? This pic has the traditional maize, which for some reason Adidas couldn't match when they had the uniform contract from 2008-2014.



2. Detroit Red Wings - the Winged Wheel. I might be biased but this jersey is hockey to me. Minor changes here and there but overall a classic.



3. Detroit Tigers - baseball and the old English D. This uniform has also undergone very minor changes over the decades (in looking through pics, the logo seen here with the navy blue on white has been around as far back as 1946, maybe longer).



4. Detroit Lions (1990-2000) - this is the Honolulu Blue & Silver I remember the most, with the stripes on the sleeves. Not surprisingly my fondest memories of this team (there aren't much) coincide with the guy wearing the jersey in the pic.



5. USA Hockey (2010 Winter Olympics) - I dunno, I just really dig the logo design here. It looked really f'ing good.



Honorable Mentions

2019 USWNT World Cup - simple but they look awesome. Also nice to see a US Soccer team kit with stars on them to represent World Cup wins. Plus Megan Rapinoe is the shit, so here it is lol.

 

Detroit Pistons (2001-2005) - While I love the jerseys from the Bad Boys era, these ones from the 2001-2005 era just look a little neater to me.

“But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.” - Martin Luther King, Jr

I was recalling the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game and thought why not have a top 5 Kevin Bacon movies


5. Flatliners

Campy? Kinda not really. This was good to see at the drive in back when. Bacon really had a great character and along with Kiefer and Julia, probably the best performances.

4. Tremors
I think this movie upgrades the B movie genre exponentially. Such fun and sincerely good performances from Ward and Bacon

3. Murder in the First
While Slater was good, Bacon was brilliant imo. The film itself twists true characters in to prison tropes which still plays out ok but not quite worthy of Kevin's performance

2. Apollo 13
There's just not much else to say here.

1. Mystic River
Would the film even work without him? Nah.

Honorable mentions - A Few Good Men, Animal House, Footloose

Well that one died on the vine, so let's try this one...

Top 5 John Hughes Films

Our lists are with the understanding that Hughes' films were mostly different levels of awesome.  :D

Mr. Mom
Michael Keaton just killed this role. Teri Garr and Martin Mull were perfectly placed in this film.
Our family quoted this movie quite often and to this day, 220, 221, whatever it takes, still finds its way in to my conversations.

Vacation
Russ! Russ, your feet!
This, Animal House, Smokey and the Bandit and Caddyshack are the essentials to any movie quote professional

The Great Outdoors
this was great cable TV fare. I used it often to culture my nephews on their growing pop culture lexicon, plus, John Candy.

Christmas Vacation
Since I already had a Candy movie, I went with this one. A staple every year if not more, just like PTA. I also used to have Clark's harangue on my answering machine.

Ferris Beuller's Day Off
Just a fun film all the way around. Jennifer Grey was awesome, Jeffrey Jones as Rooney was absolute gold and of course Edie McClurg rounded out a spectacular supporting cast. This film wouldn't have been near as good without those guys.
And Mia Sara...yea
 :D

John Hughes

Breakfast Club - So many quotable lines from this film, I can't leave this off.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Might not be a top 5 80's movie for me but definitely top 10.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles - Just a great great movie, Steve Martin and John Candy were perfectly cast in this.

Mr. Mom - arguably Michael Keaton's best role. Almost 40 years later and this movie is still great too.

Uncle Buck - first time I saw this movie it was just okay...but it grew on me. John Candy always had great comedic timing.

Haha! Mr. Mom is such a great flick lol It wsa at the top of the list for years

Let's see if this topic will have legs...

Top 5 album covers all time. It helps if you really like the album but not necessary

Rumours - Fleetwood Mac. Iconic, all time, both the cover and the album



Dark Side - Pink Floyd. Enough said



Foreigner - Head Games. Always loved this album and the cover. It was just so....gutsy



London Calling - The Clash. The fact this is an in concert photo is so...punk



Surfer Rosa - Pixies. I love the art direction here, the flamenco dancer is perfect juxtaposition

Okay, album covers...so many I wanted to include but I went with my heart on these. Fleetwood Mac, The Clash, and Pink Floyd are iconic obviously...in no particular order:

Album Covers

N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton
The arrival of West Coast Gangsta Rap.



Michael Jackson - Thriller
Simple but judging by the cover you had no idea what was about to be unleashed once you started playing it.



Prince - Purple Rain
Same thing. Simple but the album you were about to play would blow your mind.



The Beatles - Revolver
Really thought about going with Abbey Road for this one, but the art on this one is great...plus I just like this album better too.



Beastie Boys - Licensed to Ill
Ah, the grade school memories from when this album dropped. 3MTA3 on the tailfin will always be funny to me.



Honorable Mention because I can. :)
Van Halen - 1984
I can't believe this wasn't posted. They may have more iconic album covers but this is the one for me.

I like the NWA cover as well, and of course the VH ;-)
But like you said, too many options
