    i was born in the 80s but i have sisters who are children a the 70s who used to love this kind a stuff. i think the 70s seem like happy times except for viet nam.

    isn't this song just so innocent*:

    *and ironic considering it's michael jackson singing in it.

    That Rosie Greer was a strange cat.


    He played football, but I think he used to knit or some shit.


    Seems like he had some kinda knitting set that he used to sell on TV.

    Same here, but make it age 17-22.

    ...or 18-ish in 1955....see MackTheKnife's spank bank thread for the reason why I say that.
