The randy girl, her coiffe a casualty of their passion, is Bobcat cheerleader Angie Hop, then 17.

The picture was taken twenty-three years ago. Back then Angie, or "Ang" as she is known to the multitude of people who love her, was voted "Most Likely to Kiss Guys" by her fellow Marshalltown (IA) H.S. students. Not only that, she was...

Hey MTN Guys,

I thought you might be interested in my little bike ride I did last summer. I didnt do as many tri's as I did Ride The Rockies in June. We rode 542 miles in a week thru and over the Rocky Mountains.
