Playing with the Boys

Think back to where you were in May 1986.  Where you enjoying the summer weather, maybe having a picnic, or perhaps you were seeing the movie that WOULD CHANGE THE WORLD!

The movie you ask?  That movie is called Top Gun. Top Gun stars Tom Cruise and Anthony Edwards as Maverick and Goose.  Maverick is the resident hotshot flyboy, he’s a great pilot, but he lets his ego get in the way.  Goose and Maverick have a bond that’s inseparable, this is never more evident than in one specific scene, which I’d like to direct your attention to. Take a couple of minutes and form your own opinion from the following clip Top Gun Volleyball. The previous scene and Top Gun itself has spawned many spoofs, take for example this Top Gun references in Family Guy

Top Gun was a movie that defined 1986 and still makes impacts in 2018.  I will leave you with this quote from Maverick and Iceman “You can be my wingman anytime” “Bullshit, you can be mine!”
