Before Team Edward and Team Jacob...


Before Team Edward and Team Jacob, there was Team Bo and Team Luke. {If you don't know what I'm talking about, you're too young and should move on.} When I was a little girl, I used to watch afternoon reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard. I would turn my doll stroller upside down, steer one of the wheels and pretend I was driving. What can I say? I was an only child and needed entertaining.


I often watched with my cousin's at my aunt's house. Jennifer and I would argue over which one of the Duke boys was hotter. I said Bo. She said Luke. Obviously, I was right. Look at that curly blond hair and pretty smile. Don't you agree?


The premise of the show wasn't spectacular, but it was exciting and funny. Bo and Luke, cousins, were on probation for illegal transportation of moonshine. The county commissioner, Boss Hog, and county sheriff, Rosco P. Coltrane, were always trying to pin something on the boys so they could throw 'em in jail. We can't forget about their hot cousin, Daisy Duke. Rounding out the cast is Uncle Jesse, Enos and Cooter. As a southern girl, I would have been shunned if I didn't love this show. I can definitely thank The Dukes of Hazzard for contributing to my love of muscle cars.






These days, I'm happy to see John Schneider (Bo) on several shows I watch. He's been on Smallville, the new 90210, Desperate Housewives, and Hot in Cleveland.



By golly, I think he's still got it.

I LOVED this show! I used to get so mad at my mom when she wouldn't let me get into our '84 Relient (ugly, non-muscle car) "Dukes of Hazzard" style!

I was also excited about the movie until Jessica Simpson literally butchered Daisy Duke, in my opinion. I never remember Daisy as being a dingbat... EVER.

I was always Team Bo. And not only does he still have it...I think he's got more of it than he did when the show was on.

You know you had me at Team Edward...

Funny that you brought this up. I still watch Duke of Hazard. We even started DVRing it, so we can watch it whenever we want. You'll see this in my Friday Confessionals this week!! I'm Team Bo...and he's definitely still got it!

I was ALWAYS Team Bo!!!

I would dress up as Daisy Duke (when I was 10 yrs old.. that's disturbing) & play that Bo Duke would have to rescue me... if Freud could get ahold of that one!

gringationcancun said...

Never seen the show (sorry :( ) but judging by the pictures I'd agree that Bo is hotter!

emily said...

I loved that show as a kid!! I named one of my dolls Luke Duke and would take it everywhere with me.

Jen said...

This is so funny as I have just tuned back in to The Dukes of Hazzard on CMT and quoting Boss Hogg. Its driving my husband nuts!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

I was always team Bo! [Minus the year he beat up his wife but there are 2 sides to every story]. I was so happy to see him on Smallville as well!

I big puffy hearted Dukes! I wanted to be Daisy when I grew up!!! I still sort of do. Somewhere there is a White Jeep w/ my name on it!

Next you should discuss Team Dylan or Brandon ;)

Natalie said...

I loved The Dukes.. I watched it every day with my brother.

Remember in high school when TNT started reairing the episodes? It's kinda hard to believe we would watch it & call it quality television.

And yes, Team Bo here too.

fojoy said...

Definitely Team Bo - no question! Though Luke Duke is a cooler name...
And I always tried to get into the car without opening the doors, but my Mom would yell at me.

Nikosmommy said...

Love love loved this show! We use to watch it on Friday nights as a kid. I thought both cousins were sooooo hot. And my first girl crush was probably on Daisy!!!

Great post!!!

Dana said...

Mmmmm Bo!!! Yep he still has it!

MiMi said...

My sister and I used to watch it together and she always got Bo because she was older and got to pick first. So I was stuck with Luke. But let me tell you, I totally OWNED my love for Luke.
I even met him in real life once, but didn't tell him that.
He brother is a Dr in our town and he comes to visit. :)

I love how they "set" their cowboy hats on top of their hair. Their curly, lustrous hair!!

Hutch said...

Heather In The Land Of Mom said...

There just good ol' boys how didn't mean know harm! Oh how I loved that show when I was little. I was team Bo, who could resist him.

Sherrie said...

I LOVED the Dukes of Hazard. We let Caleb watch it a while back, and decided it was a bit too much for him. LOL! Bo was definitely the better one. LOL! :)

Ed said...

Mmmmm...Daisy.

Venassa said...

I've never watched too much of the show, but my uncles had the Duke nickname because of the way they drove. Around here you can still track down my uncle by asking for Brian Duke.

AMY said...

I Loved the Dukes! I was in Love with Luke though. Dark haired guys have always gotten my attention.
We'd always look forward to Friday nights so we could watch the show!
Bo is Looking very hot now days!

Karen Peterson said...

Definitely Team Bo.

I met John Schneider in person a year or two ago. He's super nice and even better looking in person.

Cathy said...

OMG YES! Dukes of Hazard!
I'm going to have to say I'm team Bo, and yes, he's still got it!
