I am the youngest of 8 kids, 5 of which were boys. So, I watched my fair share of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Video Games (when I hear Blanca's music in Street Fighter, I feel really tender). One show I remember watching every Saturday with my older brother Eric and sister Haley was X-Men. I get chills when I hear the intro music play. It makes me wanna get up and be awesome. Did you guys watch that show? I loved it. In fact, a few years ago, Chad surprised me with the Cartoon DVDs. One of the best gifts I have ever received. I hate Cyclops, still to this day. I always had a crush on Gambit. And thought Saber Tooth was terrifying.
After we finished watching the episode, Haley and I would go downstairs and pretend to be X-Men. Eric would sometimes play too and he would be Gambit, Haley always got to be Storm which meant I only had Jean, Jubilee, or Rogue to choose from (because I didn't want to be a boy). Of course, any sane person would choose Rogue out of that selection. We pretty much just flew around the room and didn't do much else. Anyway, even now to this day, I would still choose Rogue if I were an X-Men. Especially if I had that huge hair and dope accent like she did in the cartoon.
