Punch-out is on my game console, Transformers is in the movie theaters, and Oregon Trail is taking over the iPhone. The 80's are officially the decade of the aughts. It shows how deeply a memory is ingrained when I was browsing LEGO sets in Target and heard the theme song to Punch-out for the first time in easily 18 years and immediately thought of taking down Piston Honda. Ah, Punch-Out the racially insensitive precursor to Ready 2 Rumble boxing.
I guess it was only a matter of time before LEGO came back into my life when it seems as though the rest of my childhood was getting a reboot. The good news is that I'm a lot less competitive than when I was 12 and understand that girls might just be okay.
If you'll excuse me, I have to go hand wash my hyper color t-shirt.
