"My parents are natives of Los Angeles and therefore lifelong Dodgers fans, which means I have been a Dodgers fan too since I've known what baseball is. This was my kindergarten/first grade backpack and I'm loving the 80's style pointy-collared polo shirt (it probably had some sort of cheesy Hawaiian design on it). I'm kind of surprised I'm not holding up a Ghostbusters or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles backpack, because at that age I was WAY more into those things than baseball." --Will
"This was sophomore year, a time when I was stick thin and Glamour Shots was the thing. I remember walking through the mall one day with my best friend and seeing this place opening up and telling her that we just had to go and get our pictures taken. It was probably the most fun I had had in a long time but all the makeup and hairspray was not for me." --Tawnya, 16, Wichita, Kansas
"I would like to clarify that this is not a mullet -- contrary to popular belief, it was spiked. It's sort of a lion's mane Statue of Liberty thing. A little bit of gel and the large cans of AquaNet." --Erica Hill, "The Early Show" News Anchor (Watch BYWH on "The Early Show" on CBS.)
After the jump: Does Erica unpop her collar and lose the Cosby sweater?
"So I guess somewhere between 7th grade and 8th grade I graduated from listening to George Michael and wanting to hang out with my mom at the salon getting perms, to listening to Megadeth and Suicidal Tendencies and smoking with the burnouts. I think I got suspended from Shelby Junior High soon after this photo for 'smokin' in the boys room' after having my heart broken by some girl that probably turned into an absolute nothing. Wow, I guess I still have a little unresolved feelings about this girl whose name I forgot. Some things never change." --Jeremy
