Chris & Brian were brothers - Brian was 12, the youngest of 5 brothers; Chris was 23. Comments we wrote on the tryouts sheets of these two said, "really animated; having fun." They came to Starcade! auditions to be a team and they made a great one!

Chris & Brian's Starcade! show included Stargate, Roc'N Rope, Tron, Lady Bug and Pac Man Plus. The Grand Prize was a Joust video arcade game. They didn't win the Grand Prize but they did win a computer for being the overall winner.

In his short bio in 1983, Brian told us, "I like to go skiing, working with computers, doing stunts on my bike like flying off the bike handlebars into the snow, swimming, playing baseball ... and amusement parks. My favorite ride at the Amusement Park is the Roller Coaster especially the one in Kings Island, the world's longest one." Brian lived in the fast lane - doing what he loved.

Chris at 23 had worked for United Airlines and had travelled to Hawaii, New York, California, Texas, Chicago, Florida and New Jersey. Immediately after his appearance on Starcade!, he went to Germany on special assignment in Computer Maintenance for the US Air Force. According to his bio, "I am teaching myself to play the piano and plan to take up hang gliding in the near future."

In 2004, Mark, one of the other brothers, checked in to tell us, "My brother Chris lives in California and works in management for Charles Schwab. He has a 9 year old son with whom he shares a love of baseball and just about all other sports ... Brian graduated from Regis University in Colorado ... had a dream to fly and accomplished his goal with over 5,000 flying hours. Brian was married New Year's Day 2001. He died August 23, 2001, shortly after take off flying out of New York."

Starcade! "was certainly a thrill for both of them." It was an equal thrill for Starcade! We are so lucky we got to know them as a team!
