Today We Remember: Marius RobertsPosted: September 16, 2013
Giving us early-90s-REALNESS above, is the younger version of ex-MNet continuity presenter, Marius Roberts. Although still quite pleasant to look at, this is not the photo of him I wanted to use as the main image.

Or you could put that mess on in the background while you state at these (sadly, no shirtless ones:
