    The world is constantly changing. Some of us like to remember when life was much simpler. So we thought it would be nice to recall fond things. See if you can keep the theme going.
    You know that you're old school if you can remember the days when the Oakland Athletics had three seperate uniforms, a Reece's peanut butter cup was 5 cents and you knew Roberto Clemente wore number 21.

    ... say that in Grade 8 your $ 2.00 weekly allowance bought 4 packs of cigarettes with enough left over for a bottle of Coke.

    Hostess Cupcakes for 19 cents a two-pack, 30 more cents for the Coke to wash it down.
  5. You could steal Gatorade Gum from the little market near your cousin's house because 25 cents for a whole pack of gum was wayyyy too much.
    Oh, and you can remember that Nick Giaquinto was Riggins' backup on the '82 Redskins.
