I never thought it could happen to me, but boy, was I wrong!

Entry #1 in the Being David Hasselhoff contest is a personal story from Ricki.

In 1977, my best friend and I went to California for a visit--our first time abroad and on our own. We were wacky 17 year olds and wild about Y&R (and if you know David, you know what that is!!). Coming from Canada with a 6-hour time difference to LA, we woke up our first morning there at 5:30 AM. Didn't know what to do, so wandered downtown and noticed CBS studios. Back door was open. We snuck in.

My friend started jumping up and down and freaking out when we came upon a set: "This is Mrs. Chancellor's living room! This is Mrs. Chancellor's living room!" Of course, a security guard spotted us and came over to see who the heck we were and what we were doing there. I guess we were just so darned cute (and in the interest of US-Canadian relations), they gave us each a guest pass to the set and LET US SPEND THE DAY WITH THE SOAP ACTORS. Can you imagine the elation for two teens on their first day in LA??

We met a whole bunch of people (most of whom are no longer on the show), but were more entranced by Snapper--ie, David. He told us about a great beach to visit, some stupid vinyard
(two teenaged girls??), the gruelling soap schedule and how great it was to work there, etc. etc. etc.

Everyone, go and check out Ricki's very cool blog RIGHT NOW.

I think we can all agree that this is a fabulous entry. What've YOU got? I am accepting anything creative. Use your imagination. Remember, there are prizes.

You may have missed: I Am David Hasselhoff.

This is hilarious! My little boy LOVES "The Hoff" and he's only 6. I have all 4 seasons of Knight Rider here and have seen them all last least a dozen times.

Welcome! Perhaps your little guy has an entry in mind!

I hope you'll stick around. Your blog is great.

Aw, shucks, Megan, thanks! To have reached cooldom at my ripe old age is something!! (Oh, and sorry to say that a cursory look around the basement produced nothing... yet. I will keep at it.)
