    Funny you should mention this as I too requested the poster around 13 just to throw my family and friends off. Truly though it was really hot, and if anything was ever gonna sort me out it would've been that. She was incredibly foxy, and what a legendary shot.

    Having my best friend living right next door, I always felt the added bonus of double gifts because whatever he got for Christmas I was gonna undoubtedly be playing with that too.

    What'd you get, What'd you get, What'd you get?!?!?

    Macho man wrestling doll was also a hit back then. I wonder where that thing is. Just looked on ebay and those bad boys are going for $100.

    I remember those!

    I had Hulk Hogan and my brother had the Ultimate Warrior. Those were awesome!

    I would have to say a Dirt bike. When I was 12 I woke up to a red/white Yamaha Mini Enduro. I was jacked up. My friend and neighbor got exactly the same. We were out riding in our neighborhood right at daylight. Now that was a Christmas.

    50 years ago on Christmas Day at the age of 9 I got my first Strat-O-Matic baseball game. My cousin had a 1964 edition and I got hooked on it.
