Dream Team?

Last week, over drinks, the notion of the 'Dream Team' was brought up. While initially it applied to basketball, pretty soon anyone was fair game. Thus, I present a rather eclectic mix of people, historical figures, and fictional characters. They're my VIP's ... my Dream Team:
  • Doc Brown & Marty McFly
  • Teddy Roosevelt
  • G. Mason
  • James Cook
  • Atticus Finch
  • Holden Caulfield
  • Bart Simpson
  • Captain Planet
  • Carrie Bradshaw
  • Robert Redford & Dustin Hoffman as Woodward & Bernstein
  • Alex P. Keaton
  • Gwen Stefani
  • Lady GaGa
  • Santa Claus
