Hoosier Mug Shot Challenge – Part 2

As pointed out yesterday in Part 1, we have 3 or 4 regulars on this blog who call Indiana home, or used to.  It stands to reason, then, that some of you might be able to recognize a photo of a possibly famous (or infamous or completely unknown) Hoosier from a childhood photo.  We tried this once already last night, but it was too easy.  Let’s try it again, making it a little harder.  The prize this time, is a completely different kind of automobile-themed Indiana craft beer.  Good luck!original

Who be this?old-school

Could it be any of these Indiana-associated people?

    Is it this guy?

  2. I’m going with Oscar. You can see the same rabid, sporting enthusiasm with just the right touch of crazy. That’s him. 😀

  3. You can tell that the kid photo was taken about 1970, because of the Schwinn Stingray bike behind him with the banana seat and “chopper bike” handlebars. That flared rear chrome wheel fender was classic, too. I had one just like that on my bike. 😀

    I vote for texan59

    • And you’re right! Well done, tessa50! Sorry to sneak 2 non-famous Hoosiers in a row into these contests, but what difference, at this point, does it make, huh? I mean, famous Hoosiers are like Sudanese Nobel Prize winners in Physics. There aren’t too many of them, really. Next contest: Name Barack Obama’s real dad! That should be a hard one.

      So, do you like craft beer, tessa, or do you want to substitute something else? We will work on delivery asap, but it may take a while unless you’re planning on visiting Denver soon. In that case, you’re covered right away.

      Thank ya kindly ma’am. 🙂

        Hey Tex! Was that pic of you still early enough where the glove, or “mitt”, and cleats, were made of genuine fine? Or did they have man-made materials then too? When was that pic taken? Please forgive me, I was born in the “petroleum-based-products” age. 😀

        • Don’t kill him, Tex. He’s just young and stupid. Waaaiiiiiiiittt… I think he did that on purpose. Practically asked you if your fielder’s glove was made of genuine dinosaur leather. Don’t take that off that iPhone-using punk! 😀

          • Knight4GFC says:

            Lol!… Whoa there Grunt! Us Paniolos were cattle-poking and firing lead from way back too. I’m shooting true here! I still use lead, not plastic! My family still handcrafts genuine fine products too. I may have been born into the lazy “age of information”, but I still live guided by the tried and true “old school” way! BTW, It’s a Droid. 😀

            • He he!! I was just kiddin’ ya, Knight. I thought you might be shooting straight about the glove out of genuine interest, but I had to give you some “Old Guy” lip just in case. 😀 After all, me and Tex aren’t THAT old. We were born smack dab in the middle of the era of cheesy plastic Japanese everything. Now it’s Chinese, but it really hasn’t changed that much. Still, I bet Tex’s glove was probably leather. We all liked old-school in those days, too, but it depended on whether you could afford it sometimes.

              • Knight4GFC says:

                Brother Grunt, you and Tex are the lucky guys! What the heck happened to the “good old days”?! There is no “school” like the “old school”. 😀 That’s one of the reasons I like to pick you guys’ brains about the good times! 🙂 I had the best times just sitting down and listening to the Grandparents tell me how it was in the ol’ days. Loved it! Somewhere along the short thread of time, something happened… bummers. 😦
