“This guy I know that races motorcycles in Southern California is a real jerk. Every time you did something stupid, we would call you by his last name. ‘You’re such a Smith.’ And at the Super Bowl of Motocross three years ago (in 1979), he raced and had “Hollywood” on the back of his jersey. From then on, whenever you did something stupid, we would say: ‘You’re such a Hollywood.’ It was meant as a put down, but now I guess it’s a compliment. I just tell people that they call me that because I like to show off.” – Mike Miranda, Super BMX Magazine, April 1983.
