    Maybe this is just for us weirdo Canadian 80's kids but what about:

    - Having a pear of Treetorns with EVERY colour "swoosh" (especially the plaid ones)
    - The Mini Pops - "Eye of the Tiger" was the best, especially for the roller rinks!
    - Pinning you Pants


    If your from TO, you know whad I'm talking about.
