With this post, you can now add the Original Retro Brand to one of the many places you can find a "this day in sports history" type scenario. Does that mean we're not "Original" after all? Heck No! - it just means we think we know a thing or two when it comes to all things retro, and we're simply going to give you our vintage from a different vantage, if you will. We're also not going to serve it up every single day, just when we feel like it. Lastly, it's also a cool way to show our awesome vintage gear!
Let's celebrate a few birthdays in sports for starters....Women's Soccer is a hot topic right now (with good reason), and former CAL & Santa Clara star Brandi Chastain is STILL HOT today at 43 years old....The mid-summer classic is in the books, and so is the 31st birthday for 5X Yankees All-Star pitcher CC Sabathia....Not surprised that CC was a High School all-conference Tight End who received scholarship offers from UCLA & Hawaii.
DANG, I love our graphics!! Vintage doesn’t always mean sports around here, so…..
On this day in 1967 (I was 7 years old), The Jimi Hendrix Experience started a 3-night gig at the infamous "Cafe-a-Go-Go" in New York City, and I can remember fighting with my friend over who was the better guitarist - Hendrix or George Harrison (Rob Keller if you're out there, you were right, it was Hendrix).....On this day in 1990, over 350,000 people attended Roger Waters ( Pink Floyd) performance of 'The Wall' at the Berlin Wall. I totally remember seeing that on TV, and thinking Reagan and Waters definitely tore that baby down!
