Whatta Man Monday — 80′s Heartthrob Edition!!

Happy Monday, chickies!!

Still recovering from the Superbowl last night?

And by recovering, I mean getting over the bloat from all the food…I could care less about the football part.

Anyways.  Last week, Now George beat Then George UNANIMOUSLY.  You girls love a silver fox!!

(I have to say I agree completely)

This week, I decided to pit my two childhood loves against each other.  I dreamt about them, I tore their posters from magazines and hung them on my walls…and now I’m being forced to choose between the two.  It’s bittersweet.

Michael J. Fox (Alex P. Keaton) vs Kirk Cameron (Mike Seaver)

The two had very different personalities.  Alex P. Keaton was conservative and success driven…and Mike Seaver was adorable, but trouble.

Michael J. Fox was also in the Back to the Future movies…I always thought he looked so cute in his puffy vest.

Also, I feel really OLD right now…

Here they both are, making their adorable faces.

Nice hat.

Both of them fell victim to bad 80′s fashion.  Hi cut off t-shirts, I don’t miss you a bit.

Looks like they both want your vote.

Who do YOU choose??

    How to choose! Well, I guess since my walls were covered with Kirk Cameron posters and I wrote my name, “Norma Cameron” i choose Kirk.

    Team Growing Pains!!

    Mike Seaver for the win! And he hasn’t changed or aged a bit, still adorable! As evidenced in “Fireproof” where I spent 93% of the movie telling my husband to look how cute Mike Seaver still is! I *may* have missed the point of that marriage strengthening movie…oops. :)

    Wow this was a no brainer for me. Michael J. Fox all the way! I loved him in all of the Back to the Future movies and Spin City was the best.

    Srsly?? Lauded proponent for medical research and Parkinson’s acceptance as well as seasoned funny-man with many great 80s movies under his belt beats a homophobic wash-up any day. If Kirk Cameron was ever cute, it was killed with his laughable conservative spewing. Michael stays classy and, despite his health issues and being over 50, is still quite cute. No contest.

    Michael J. Fox! Michael J. Fox! Michael J. Fox! Even today, he is still cute! Michale J. Fox is just a class-act!

    I always thought that Kirk Cameron has the most goober-ish smile.

    Oh….this to a hard one….I loved Kirk on Growing Pains….Mike Seaver was such a character…..and I simply love the man he has turned into….his movies are so powerful and have great meaning!

    I am still in love with the character of Alex P Keaton…..the preppy, Reagan loving, organized teenager. He was sooo dreaming. And he has also turned into an amazing actor.

    DANG….this is a hard choice…i can not choose…..ok….THEN…I chose MJF….NOW….I chose Kirk……is that good enough? Really…this is like asking us to choose between Back Street Boys and 98 degrees…..

    Because of all the time I spent staring into his eyes, it’s going to have to be Kirk.
    I had that red poster of Kirk on my wall. I think it was a centerfold in tiger beat or some other teenage crushgasm magazine. I’m so ashamed of myself. Actually…. I’m ashamed of my mom. Quite sure I wasn’t earning my own money back then, which leaves her responsible for buying them. Please please please don’t let my daughter ask for boy posters. It will crush my heart.

    Well . . . . I NEVER had day dreams about either of them. Way to young for me! But I loved Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future and I have enormous respect for how he and his family have handled his illness — Parkinson’s. Plus the work he’s doing to battle this horrible disease. Michael gets my vote.

    I was too old to have a crush when their shows were on but Kirk Cameron has grown into a nice and generous person who has founded an organization to send sick children on vacations and also doesn’t mind standing up for his religious beliefs. My family passed him and his wife walking at Callaway Gardens a few years ago, he didn’t have to look us in the face and speak but he did ~ just like normal people saying hello! ( and no we didn’t ask to take their picture or ask for an autograph :D )
