Wasn't She Cute?

The Pam Anderson Story

Pamela Anderson was born and raised in the small town of Ladysmith, British Columbia on July 1, 1967, Even her birth made headlines as she was the first baby born in the area on Canada's Birthday.

Shortly after that, her parents Barry, a furnace repairman and Carol, a waitress, moved North to Comox, British Columbia. Comox is about 200 kilometers north of Vancouver, British Columbia on Vancouver Island. Upon graduating from Highland Secondary School in 1985 her yearbook entry stated that her aspiration in life was "To be a California Beach Bum".

It was the summer of 1989 when close friends of Pamela invited her to go to a BC Lions Football game with them. Apperently the Lions were playing the Toronto Argonauhts and one of her friends was a representative for Labatt's beer breweries. During the game, a cameraman was roaming the crowd looking for someone to put up on the big screen for all to see. He found Pamela, and when he put her bright smiling face up on the screen, the place erupted!

I'd like to tell you I was at that game but I really don't remember and after all they've shown a lot of babes on that big screen. Labatt's noticed the response this woman was getting and the fact that she was wearing a Labatt's shirt her friend had given her clinched the deal. She began modeling for Labatt's in their then current promotion for the "Blue Zone". As the "Blue Zone Girl". Pamela's posters were plastered all over walls in bars and restaurants, shipping bays and repair shops.

With luck like Pam's she should have gone to an online casino like playzee because soon afterward, she moved to Los Angeles, where she appeared on shows like "Married...With Children" and as Lisa, the Tool Time Girl on "Home Improvement". Pamela also appeared in the pages of Playboy magazine and on the Cover a record five times! Pamela was soon cast as 'C.J. Parker' on the internationally successful TV series Baywatch and you probably know the rest of the story from here. 

Wherever Pamela is I am sure that the BC Lions are her favourite football team.

Other celebrities associated with the BC Lions include Carl Weathers who played Apollo Creed in the Rocky Movies, Merced Solis who became Tito Santana off WWE fame and former 1964 Grey Cup winning quarterback Joe Kapp who appeared in my favourite football movie "The Longest Yard" with Burt Reynolds.
