You can take the girl off the island...

I grew up on Vancouver Island in the Cowichan Valley. It was a lovely and slightly idyllic existence on a farm with goats, cats and a really smelly dog named Flashy.

There are a few ways to recognize a girl that grew up SO CLOSE to Duncan (but not Duncan itself. this is key. Its like Surrey and White Rock. Trust me on this) They include:
  1. Her love of heavy metal. Specifically Metallica, AC/DC, The Scorpions and Megadeth
  2. Her ability to drink anyone under the table at any time
  3. Her ability to tell the difference between a Jersey and a Holstein (they are cows by the way)
  4. Her big hair
  5. Her overwhelming glee at the resurgence of shows like...

Oh the cheese. Oh the yelling. Oh the ludicrous outfits and even more ludicrous names.

AND its hosted by Laila Ali and Hulk Hogan!


All this joy go me to thinking about the old classic American Gladiators. Whatever happened to them? Malibu, Lace and Nitro...where are they now???

Well thanks to the CRACKERJACK research of my fantastic coworker I found THIS!
