Gaming with Uncle Lester: Sweet Rides of 80s TV

What happened to the most awesomely ridiculous vehicles of the 80s?
Gaming With Uncle Lester

Uncle Lester may live in a van down by the river, but that doesnÂ’t mean he isnÂ’t a gamer at heart. Always on the lookout for an unsecured Wi-Fi connection to use before being runoff, his quest for gamer glory continues!

Hello and welcome to the 12th edition of Gaming with Uncle Lester! IÂ’m your host of todayÂ’s show, Uncle Lester. Man, itÂ’s getting tough for a guy to get some free Wi-Fi these days. In the last 2 weeks, IÂ’ve been booted from a schoolyard, one restaurant, a truck stop, and a church. IÂ’m on a rollÂ… in a van! Ha!

Anyway. Look. I love my van. Who else has such an awesome airbrush painting on the side of theirs? I’ll tell you who – nobody! Even so, I got to wishing I could have KITT, complete with voiceover. That would be a seriously awesome sweet ride. We’d be driving around, talking smack, pickin’ up chicks, and fightin crime! Yeah, yeah… I know I’m too lazy to fight any crime but KITT was a super car and could drive himself, so I could just chill in the back.

Of course, there are days that traffic sucks. Imagine having Airwolf as your personal helicopter. That would be fÂ’ing sweet! IÂ’d be up there doing flips and rolls and if anything got in my way, IÂ’d just lock on to it and fire a missile up its backside. Traffic issue solved!

If I had a full crew with me though, I think weÂ’d need something bigger, like B.A. BarakusÂ’ babyÂ… the black van from the A-Team! Of course, IÂ’d still be stuck trying to help people out and fight bad guys. HmmmÂ… instead, maybe I could just be the guy that drugs B.A, gives Face a great disguise, and busts Murdock out of yet another mental institute when Hannibal needs him most. Man, I love it when a plan comes together!

ThatÂ’s it for todayÂ’s show but tune in tomorrow for more from your geeky gummybear of the gaming world, Uncle Lester! Be sure to follow me on Twitter at @UncleLesterWIFI too or send me an email with your gamer topic at [email protected]!
