Yeah, I used to be skinny...

... like, 30 friggin’ years ago. That’s me with Don Valyou and Dick Stone at the apex of our competitive scholastic careers, representing DuVal Senior High School on “It’s Academic.”

We won our first game, but then got crushed by Walt Whitman, if I recall correctly.

Thanks to Don for posting this on his Facebook page. (Click the pic for a larger look.)

Oh, those late 70s hairstyles!

OH MY GOD! You were sooo teeny! But, hey, we all were. If you were my "friend" on FB, you could laugh at all my skinny pics too.

yeah, well not only was I thinner, but I also had hair. I suppose I could grow it out, but all those white hairs make me feel old.

Not one,not two, but three pieces! I had that suit too!

Undercover Black Man said...

^ I was rocking the sweater vest. With a suit. Thought I was stylin'.

Invisible Woman said...

Look at you, Leon Isaac Kennedy! lol!

^Leon Isaac Kennedy! Ha ha.

The guy behind UBM looks like he should've been in Switch.

Undercover Black Man said...

^ Well... he switched when he walked. Does that count?

Fond DMV memories. Saturday mornings have never been the same. Me and my high school Black Pursuit club always wished we could get on this show.

Dude, I remember that guy. He is recognizable to me as the same cat who stumbled into the Diamondback offices a few years later.

Of course, I looked a whole lot different back then too.

Father Time opened his can of whoop ass.

Oh, you're bad. LOL

Mr. Obie Joe said...

Now, I don't have photographic evidence, but I knew you at U. of MD, and you were just as handsome! Though by then you lost the sweater vest look.

Undercover Black Man said...

^ How sweet of you, Kelly. Would you mind jogging my memory? Did you work at the Diamondback?

Coquinegra said...

Dude! I knew we were kindred spirits. I was on the winning Scholastic Scrimmage team in 1982 (the Eastern PA answer to It's Academic)
and who is the dude standing behind you?

Undercover Black Man said...

^ Faculty advisor.

"Scholastic Scrimmage," huh? I guess every city or region has their own version.

I don't remember much of the thrill of victory. The team practices used to be fun, though.

Undercover Black Man said...

^ Hee-hee...

Invisible Woman said...
