Walking baseball almanac David Roth and I have spent a lot of time remembering the vaguely known guys of the diamond, but today, we’re switching it up. While we’re sticking around in the same dawn-of-grunge/golden age of hip-hop era (the late ’80s and early ’90s), the shorts are shorter, and the retro Washington franchise is called the Bullets instead of the Montreal Expos.
Yep, we’re remembering NBA guys. We even changed clothes to signify that this is something new! (And to prove we’re not entirely trapped on our tastefully decorated set with an improbably shaped table.) Unsurprisingly, however, the difficulty level does not change. Roth still remembers the guys.
Oh, and for all those curious, the 1987-88 Detroit Pistons VHS Year in Review is absolutely real and apparently still available to buy at a very reasonable price.
