Do You Remember? ... Mitch Gaylord...


I was 17 years old when Mitch Gaylord and the other hunks of the 1984 U.S. Men's Gymnastics team won the Olympic Gold Medal. I remember being COMPLETELY smitten with the dark-haired hottie and his teammates.

Then Mr. Gaylord went on to do ads for Soloflex - which EVERY gay boy paid attention to. Remember this?...



I still get hot and bothered looking at those pictures! Gaylord is now 48 and promotes a weight loss/exercise plan called Melt It Off.

Do i remember? DO I! In the summer of 1984 I was a young fagling of 13, but that Soloflex ad was a very close personal friend of mine. A-hem.

Are you kidding me? A hard man is an excellent find. I was a gymnast and loved the 'Gaylord' and that can totally explain why I owned a SoloFlex.

I had that Soloflex ad hanging in my bedroom closet! He still looks good at 48.

Oh my! What wonderful memories. I vandalized an issue of Rolling Stone magazine at our public library when I ripped the "hard man is good to find" ad out and pinned it to the back wall of my closet. Oh the hours Mitch and I would enjoy together.

hmmm.... good memories.
