During our get-together in Florida, we recreated some poses from photos from 30+ years ago.
Here they are.
Amazing. We’ve not changed a bit.
This photo has a peculiar history.
Chris Mele and John O’Connell (looking like they just walked off the cover of GQ magazine) were attending a speech and debate contest at the Bronx High School of Science around 1981.
They happened to photobomb this girl, who was getting her picture snapped for the high school’s yearbook.
We just happened to be in the frame and never looked so good doing it.
AMR crew member Richard Rodriguez is a graduate of Bronx Science and spotted the two of us in his yearbook, which we then inscribed over our photos.
We were such bad-asses back then.
Playing poker. Smoking. Drinking beer. Wearing flannel shirts.
Honestly, if you saw this gang of youts coming down the street walking toward you, no doubt you would tremble — from laughing so hard.
And will you look at those Captain America bedsheets in the background? What up with dat?
If you think this photo is bad, just be grateful it’s not of us playing strip poker.
