Can’t believe that this song was taken serious and was popular at one point. What the hell is the song even about. I wonder if Michael Vick has this on his iPod for when he is working out.

Now I am not going to deny the fact that I had a large collection of these things back in the day, but what really was the point? The only difference between these things and MatchBox cars were the size. Micro Machines were easier to break and lose but every kid needed them. I think the fast talking man in the commercials was a great marketing idea to get little kids to beg their parents for them.
These shirts were awesome back in the day. They show the wild side of Looney Tune characters Bugs Bunny and Taz. It was a great marketing scheme for kids who were getting to that age where it’s not cool to watch cartoons but it is cool to be hip. Throw some bling bling and baggy pants on these cartoon characters and problem solved! If you still have this shirt or a picture of you wearing this shirt please send it to us.
Looking back on it, Pogs was one of the strangest fads in my lifetime. Just round pieces of cardboard with different designs on them. I feel like everyone collected them or at least owned them at one point in their life along with slammers. Slammers were somewhat cool because at least they were metal with a design on them instead of cheap cardboard. I did collect Pogs and Slammers but I never played a single game in my life. I guess the game consisted of risking some of your pogs (your opponent did the same) then you would throw a slammer down on the pile of pogs and the ones that turned over were now yours. At least that is what I think. Anyone with any more information on the game of Pogs please comment.
Sidenote I remember my brother had an OJ Simpson slammer with OJ’s face behind jailbars and it said “OJ in the slammer” above his face, thought it was hilarious.
I feel like a lot of the readers will not know what Trac Ball because it was one of those awesome games that flew under the radar. However, I felt it was an absolute must to post it because it was featured on the show “Workaholics” last night and I instantly starting flipping out and got all excited. Basically, the game is played using this “rackets” to catch and throw the hollow ball that comes with it ( a blue one and a red one). That explanation sounds boring but the more you played the better you could throw the ball, throwing curves, risers, and throwing the ball long distances. This game was way better than the game with the sticky tennis ball and hand paddles where the players would catch the tennis ball using the flat velcro paddles. Please comment and let us know if you have ever played, owned, or heard of Trac Ball. We still have t-shirts to give away (hint, hint) so please comment.
New Edition’s “If It Isn’t Love” receives todays Throwback Thursday Jam of The Day. A lot of people didn’t think the group could do it without the young Bobby Brown. However, after kicking him out for behavioral problems (no way Bobby Brown with behavioral problems?) the group picked up Johnny Gill and still killed it back in the 1980s.
