    The list was sent to me from one of my friends. I knew most of them. :yes:

    I never heard Hillcreast called the Swish Alps. We always call it Gaycrest. :icon_rofl:

    I do remember the Old Globe fire. Do you remember the PSA flight 182 crash? :(

    Grossmont Class of 81.

    I remember hearing of PSA flight 182 and worrying that my cousin, a flight attendant for PSA at the time, was on that flight (she wasn't).

    Grossmont Sucks :icon_evil:

    We were pretty lousy, but we were sure we were gonna get our first district win vs 1st year school, Santana. But, alas, it was not to be. We lost on their Homecoming Game night. :icon_eek:

    OMG I haven't thought about a Sir George's Smorgasbord in a long time. My mom still has pictures of all of us with the big suit of armor they had by the front door. Sorry to tell you that the last one I remember was in Oceanside and it went out over 20 years ago.

    God I'm getting old :icon_eek:

    12. You've tailgated at Qualcomm Stadium, and for bonus points, also tailgated when it was Jack Murphy Stadium.

    er,... does "you've sat on the slab to watch the chargers only championship" qualify...

    ... you remember when Mission Valley was farms...

    ... traveling from OB to MB was an all day event...

    ... you remember the Q's.... (they were easy to forget)

    ... you shagged fouls at Westgate...

    ... when you could still surf at Pescadero... and No Surf was an all day hike and climb...

    ... you know who Jack Murphy was...

    I remember Sir George's as well.

    The last time I went to one is in 1986 in El Cajon. It was for my Birthday and in 1987 it closed down. Great memories there. I miss Sir George's. :(

    OK let's not forget those of us up here in the North County San Diego.

    For up here the key words were Rainblow, Frogbutt, Pissta, San Mucus, Escondildo, Oceanslime, and Carlsnads.

    You had to be from here to know:

    - where to find the red haired boy. :icon_high:

    - what the term "Green Gold" means.

    - when the O'side Pier was the longest on the west coast and know how the many chunks have been knocked off it since.

    - you had a school field trip to see the Vietnamese refugees on Camp Pendleton for Social Studies in the early 70's

    - you snuck in the trunk of someone's car to get in the Oceanside Drive-In and walked around to watch more than the movies you came for.

    It will always be the Del Mar Fair to me, just like Hill Street in Oceanside will always be Hill Street not Pacific Coast Highway 101.

    I could go on forever. Definitely a cool thread to bring back some cool memories :tup:

    BTW, my brother lives in Kearny Mesa on Ashford Ave, in a cookie-cutter house my uncle built in the 50's. On one end of Ashford in Kearny High School, the other end empties into Clairemont Mesa Blvd, where there's a small park, a Lutheran church, and a mosque.
