If you were a baseball fan in the ’70s then chances are you know about Oscar Gamble. Back then, Gamble had one of the most blown-out afros you’ve ever seen. I mean, it was tremendously huge but don’t take my word for it. Just click here to get an idea.
Sure, there were others like Bake McBride (always loved that name)…
…but nobody came close to Gamble, whose afro has almost gained cult status. In fact I have a shirt from Old Navy that is similar to this one and while it doesn’t state a team or his name, the implication is obvious.
At any rate, I got to thinking which generally means nothing good will come from it. It’s Christmastime again and I’m getting bombarded with commercials for Chia Pets who now shamelessly peddle Duck Dynasty* varieties. Fine and well but not for me.
I need something more up my alley, something with substance that I would enjoy much more that watching a beard grow.
What I want for Christmas is…
…an Oscar Gamble Chia Pet.
That is all.
*I don’t get Duck Dynasty. Sorry, I just don’t.
