First Round Matchup #6 –
Bill & Ted
Dynamic Duo showdown!!!
Both pairs bring a ton to the table so this matchup is going to be extra tough. The Coreys have the Teen Heart Throb edge, apologizes to Alex Winter on this one but facts is facts and as hard as it is to believe there were girls and guys that loved themselves some Corey Feldman. He had something…I guess. Cool Factor goes to Bill & Ted. The Coreys were try hards to the max and Feldman gets major demerits for his Michael Jackson dance routine in Dream A Little Dream:
By 1989 even I knew MJ was not cool anymore. Feldman was five years too late there.
Any cool the Coreys may have had came directly from the Haimster:
Bill & Ted on the other hand basically introduced a whole new vernacular to kids East of the Nevada state line:
Any kid that wasn’t Air Guitar’ing their way down the school hallway was totally heinous.
This one breaks my Haimster loving heart but…
Winner – Bill & Ted
The Air Guitar, the Cali speech and the endless quotes that still get dropped today…strange things may be afoot at the Circle K but they are most definitely not here in this matchup…today San Dimas High Football most certainly rules!
