    That is NOT you!!!!! Wow, have you changed (for the better, I might add :) ).

  • RJS

    Whoa … Nice poster.

  • JoeyS

    Nice shirt! (need to make my comment longer)

  • John W Frye

    I can’t tell, Scot. Are you wearing jeans??

  • scotmcknight

    John, at that time of my life I didn’t even own a pair of jeans.

  • Jim Eisenbraun

    Didn’t know you were George Costanza’s hipper brother!

  • Rob Dunbar

    Umm… Grateful Dead?

  • Lukas McKnight

    Wow. Mix in some UV rays on that cranium.

  • Jack Mercer

    One word. Dude!

  • Inchristus

    I dare anyone to argue against the power of grace to change lives!!

  • Justin Topp

    Um, I can’t even think of a joke for that. Did ANYONE dress like that in 1996?

  • Kathy Khang

    O.M.G. The Dude Abides.

  • Wendy McCaig

    Love This! I needed a good laugh tonight. Thanks for modeling humility for the rest of us. I am off to burn all the old pic’s of myself from the 90’s. :)

    This has been the most emotionally moving photos I have seen in 2012. I have saved the link and will return to view it often.

  • AHH

    Scot, I enjoyed NYPD Blue, but I really thought you did a great character on Hill Street Blues.

  • DRT

    The gym comment is just a bit creepy….

  • Jim Martin

    When I read through the comments and got to #8 (Lukas), I laughed! That sounded just like either one of my children when they’ve seen seen an old picture or “interesting” piece of clothing.

  • Terry

    Proof that you are a far more humble man than I. A true hero. I was tripped up yesterday to hear that my 7-year old grandson was excited to go to school and dress up for 80s Day. When I was in school 50s Day made some sense, leather jackets, poodle skirts, the Fonz. But dang, 80s was just life. Actually, Scot, my Dylan looked a lot like you — maybe he had his decades mixed up!?!

    Lukas, I don’t intend for you to ever meet any of my nice children.

  • Denny Burk

    That is stinking awesome!

  • Dan Reeve

    Now that’s the Scott I know and love. I an almost see and hear you now challenging your students to see if you know the initials of any author.

  • T

    That just plain rocks.

  • profanefaith

    You are a theological Jason Alexander! Love it, and glad styles continue to change. Bald is the new black.

  • Percival

    Glad you are still “challenging students with new images.”

  • TJJ

    Wow. I’ll bet that really pulled the students in!

  • Bruce

    I LOVE what you’ve done with your hair!

  • Patrick Mitchel

    “An [unforgettable] education for the individual” in style!

  • Mark E. Smith

    Yes, Dr. McKight…that’s how I remember you looking at TEDS.

  • Steve

    Way to rock the Rayon, Scot (I can only assume that’s what that shirt’s made out of).

    #15 wins the comments section, fwiw.

  • scotmcknight

    Steve, 100% cotton.

  • Bob3


    I don’t see anything wrong. Why all the comments? You still have tht shirt, right?

  • Ward

    Anyone can see that the shirt is actually a stylized Greek lexicon turned sideways.

  • J.R.

    There are no words, Scot. None.
