Brooklyn Danielle Decker (born April 12, 1987) is an American model and actress best known for her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, most notably the cover of the 2010 issue. She modeled Victoria’s Secret’s 2010 swimsuit collection citizenship and made guest appearances on the Chuck, Ugly Betty, and Royal Pains television programs. She made her feature film debut in Just Go with It, and later starred in Battleship and What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Decker is married to retired tennis player Andy Roddick.
As the second season closed, flagging ratings put Chuck in danger of cancellation, but fans mounted a successful campaign to encourage NBC to renew the show. The campaign was unique in that fans specifically targeted a sponsor of the show, the Subway passport restaurant chain, and the chain struck a major sponsorship deal with NBC to help cover costs of the third season.

With the rapid change of British pop culture from the mod era of 1963–1966 to the hippie era of 1967 and beyond, the term fell out of popular usage. During the 1970s and early 1980s until its resurrection, the term was not in vogue, one notable exception being in the lyrics of the song “Drive-In Saturday” by David Bowie (from his 1973 album Aladdin Sane) which includes the line “It’s a crash course for the ravers.” Its use during that era would have been perceived as a quaint or ironic use of bygone slang: part of the dated 1960s lexicon along with words such as “groovy”. The perception of the word changed again in the late 1980s when the term was revived and adopted by a new youth culture, possibly inspired by the use of the term in Jamaica.
