  • I love this series. Can’t wait until you guys get into the 1990’s. Even this year, 2020, has nothing on all of the crazy events of 1993. That was the most eventful year of my lifetime, so far. Seeing Joe Montana in a Chiefs uniform was definitely the most painful.

  • 1988. I have a right to mate! Maybe not in the sight of all of God and man. Sheesh. Quit tightening your belts. Loosen up. Get some excitement in your world! Try to find the thrill! Ignore the smells! The squishy sound? Just let it melt into your mind! Like the pounding of the thighs. The mound of hair and flesh? Um. That's mine... The rash? I think it's fine. A little dash of ointment. Pay no mind. Don't get all Freud on me. Just point the camera. And... 🎬 Action!

  • All info given on Gretzky was wrong. Every. Last. Word. He did not want to be traded, and when he found out, he made sure LA would do better than a cash deal for one player, and convinced LA to get more players as a trade. His wife was willing to move to Canada to start a family, and never begrudged Wayne for anything, including his late years with various teams.

  • For me, 1988 was a year of great value just because the first summer Olympics were held in my country. I didn't know so far, but it was very helpful to know that various things happened in 1988's Anglo-American through this video. Really interesting.
