  • Karen, I can totally sympathize! We've messed up Jay and Annie's name twice now. First Kelli called them "Jay and Allie", then the next show, I did it. I blame Kelli completely.

  • Sean, I knew YOU would know Helix! Now, do you remember 2 balls?

    Jason, we get to blame Kelli? Sweet! What else can we pin on her?

  • ummmmm yeah. Sorry Karen. I was trying to dig deep in my memory for that one when I heard you talk about it, but no.

    I guess us folks in Cambridge were behind you TO folks.


    I do remember playing King of the Hill, marbles, tag on the Big Toy or monkey bars, and a game where you play in a chalked off area involving a ball and trying to knock others out of the area. It's not dodge ball. It's just a vague memory.

    l8ter!

  • Oh I LOVED 90210 & I was in love with Jason Priestley (hey, I was 12 when it started...)

    Unfortunately, it transferred to satellite TV after 2 or 3 years so I never saw it after that- it was a sad, pre-DVD box set world.

    Don't think I've ever seen Degrassi though...or played 2 ball.

  • OH, and check out the cover of "Gordon" by 'The Barenaked Ladies'. Isn't that a picture of the official two-ball ball?

  • Two Ball? Ok, I'm a guy, but it must be some Toronto thing. That's ok though, since now Calgary is the centre of the universe it's ok, we'll give it a real name. ;) Macleans says so.... BNL is from down east too, so that must explain it.

  • Sorry, I don't remember Two Ball.
    I knew it was Helix too, I was screaming in my car "Helix! Helix!".

    I'm a home grown Torontonian. The girl on the top of the middle row of this picture: http://epguides.com/DegrassiJuniorHigh/cast.jpg went to school with me. She was also in 90's hiphop star Kish's "I Rock The World In 90 Days" music video - good luck finding that one!

    Anyone else rememebr Kish? We always believed that real men didn't like Kish.

    Cheers kids!
    See ya in K-town I hope.
