You know what today’s all about - the Throwback you all love or hate so much. Well today’s throwback bring us back to the 80’s … and I’ll show you what I’m talking about in just a second.
First, your chance to win a pair of tickets to the Autism Society’s Zombie Shoot, Halloween Zombie Apocalypse Fundraiser, happening on October 25th and 26th, from 6 pm-midnight. Zombies+Paintball = What more could you ask for? Also givign away another Knock-Out Hallowbaloo Prize Pack, chocked full of sweet hookups for this weekend’s Hallowbaloo Festival.
Now for that Throwback I promised. No, they weren’t made for football players, but they may well have been.
In the 80s, women told us to hear them roar, not with brute strength but with their pads … shoulder pads … that’s this week’s Throwback. If you were a lady in 80s, you knew when it came to shoulder pads, it was the bigger the better. I remember watching a group of my elementary school teachers speak to each other in a group… it looked like they were football players in a huddle. Those shoulder pads got ridiculous. What’s even weirder is that some of those shoulder pads were removable so if you lived with a woman in the 80s, you’d find them randomly around the house but not know exactly what they were.
Thankfully, the sitcom Murphy Brown was cancelled, which i believe was death’s doornail to the whole shoulder pad movement. Shoulder pads, this week’s Throwback Thursday, let’s throw them back into the past where they belong… you’re welcome.
It’s World Series time … so what’s the story of the morning? Always check your zeros is the moral of this story … especially when selling things online. We hear these stories every once in a while right? Something really expensive being forced to sell ridiculously cheap because of a typo. This time it was on StubHub and the item was a ticket to game 1 of the World Series. The price … 3 bucks … you can’t even watch UH baseball for that cheap right? Not even sure if that covers parking. $3 world series tickets, all because of some forgotten zeros. You know how much the seat next to him is going for? $500. I wonder if that $3 ticket is gonna eventually be resold by it’s new owner. That’s a toss up, right? Watch the team you love play in the world series or make a few hundred extra bucks. I dunno … $500 … that could buy a lot of coors light, right? Read more [here] in case you missed it.
