You can be my wingman anytime

You have seen the film ‘Top Gun’ then the blog title will give you an idea of whats to come next, if you have the soundtrack then get it ready to play it loud and I mean loud.

But be warned, after reading this post not only will you be calling everyone Maverick, Ice Man and Goose, you will be on the train/bus or driving to work wearing a white T Shirt, leather jacket with a pair of darkened sunglasses thinking your in some sort of dog fight and shouting “Jesters Dead”.

Finally you will find the urge to play volleyball in your jeans and then giving high fives to all your friends on the court, while constantly looking at your watch thinking shit I’m supposed to be somewhere before racing off on your Honda 1000 CBR replica motorbike with no helmet. I think you know where I’ve gone with all this?

So now it’s time to put the CD on, please don’t play “you lost that loving feeling”, its just so wrong and enjoy the following quotes and images.

Viper: Good morning, gentlemen, the temperature is 110 degrees.
Wolfman: Holy shit, it’s Viper!
Goose: Viper’s up here, great… oh shit…
Maverick: Great, he’s probably saying, “Holy shit, it’s Maverick and Goose.”

Carole: Hey Goose you big stud!
Goose: That’s me, honey.
Carole: Take me to bed or lose me forever.
Goose: Show me the way home, honey.

Maverick: I feel the need…
Maverick, Goose: …the need for speed!

Iceman: You can be my wingman any time.
Maverick: Bullshit! You can be mine.

Regards Project Maverick Afghan.

    Great film and soundtrack though I was always a little worried he would rather play volleyball than see a stunning blonde!!!

    Rob, the funny thing about these photos is that Tim used to pretend his middle name was ‘maverick’ as a kid cos he loved Top Gun and here he is in his own version 🙂 love it!
