I looked up an Alumni list for my school so I thought I would ask this.

I believe a former Prime Minister was an alumni at my school(Mackenzie I think) but no one here will know who that is because no one cares about canada's former Gov't leaders, not even us.

Al MacCinnis, a former NHL hockey player and Hockey Hall of Fame Inductee.

Now, the real reason I posted this, I know some of you are a fan of the film versions of his novels, the guy who wrote Rambo. I don't have his name memorized but I know that the guy who wrote fucking Rambo went to my highschool.

I care that MacKenzie went to your school Razz That's actually pretty awesome. For me it's Patrick Gallagher of Night At The Museum, as you guys were all more than happy to point out not so long ago.


Hopefully someday I can add my name to the list Smile


Does anybody here have a Ross Rifle?

The drummer for Korn went to my HS a few years before me. COOL! Everyone around here has some sort of stupid fucking Korn relation though. Oh, and Korn sucks.

Montel Williams went to the same school I did. I looked at an old yearbook from the year he graduated and it was odd to see him with hair.

Mostly athletes.

-Eddy Curry of the New York Knicks, and formerly the Bulls
-Cliff Floyd, who used to be on the Cubs, and went to the World Series last year with the Rays
-Retired Pitcher Steve Trout

I think pitcher Mark Mulder went to my HS too. I know his younger brother, Phil did, as he was in my class from Kindergarten up till graduation.

Did you go the same time as Ellen? Cause, I would have totally tried to hit that. Just for the bragging rights that I slept with Shadowcat.

No, I think she's four years younger than me, so I missed her by a year.

If I see her around town though Knyte, I will definitely tell her to look you up Very Happy

Um... Best I can think of is this kid Roger Chrysler who ended up in the news for having his girlfriend shoot him in the leg so he wouldn't have to be shipped out to fight in the Army.

Other than that... Um... I went to school with Fernin?


I have a sig because I was told to. Now leave me be about it.

my school was opened in 1985 so not much history. on the other hand, tucson itself does have several athletes that have grown up there. for example, Sean Elliot went to Cholla HS as well as Fat Lever. and 16 candles was filmed at Tucson High Magnet School iirc.

and of course they have Old Tucson where they filmed Tombstone as well as a number of other westerns

I'm not 100% positive on this but I know that Ron Schrab, the guy who made Monsterhouse grew up in my town. In fact, I think I deliver newspapers to his Dad's house.

I'm familiar with Abdelkaders work, he will definately be in the NHL with the next year or two, the only reason he isn't on the Red Wings is because they have so many good players, one of the best teams in the league. He's an NHLer on almost any other team.

Blackout: Tate AND Bundy? Did you attend they same time either of them did?

My one teacher went to scouts with the father of Paul Bernardo, Ontarios most famous serial killer. Walked paul's grandparents dogs when they were away.
