American Gladiators

I don’t know if any of you remembered this show back in the day, but it has made its return. It premiered tonight with new sets, new gladiators and new contenders. If you have never seen the show before, I’ll explain briefly. American Gladiators pits everyday athletes against the show’s gladiators in contests of physical strength and endurance. The show is hosted by Hulk Hogan and Laila Ali.

Above is a photo of the gladiators. Big aren’t they?

Why am I blogging about this show? My son worked on the show as some of you might know. It was the first time he had television credit. I have to say I love Tivo because I was able to slow it down and freeze frame his name. Check it out below.
A closer view.
Tom and I are very proud of him. I know this will be the first of many credits. I often tease Tom that one day when we are at the movies watching something he’s worked on and his name comes up, I will point out to everyone in the theater his name and cheer. I will also point out that his father is the man trying to sneak out like he doesn't know me.

Thank you all for sharing in my mommy moment.

Wow! Yes I watched the American Gladiators all the time! I loved watching the challenging obstacle courses they had to run through!!! And that is so neat that your son had a part in the creation of the new one. Awesome! I'll have to look for the show again on tv now. :)

I think only moms would understand the shouting and pointing behaviours. I don't think Dads have that gene--unless it's on a field outside somewhere. :)
