Have you ever sat and reminisced about what was popular when you were a kid? Well….“Then and Now” Thursdays is right up your alley.
Do you remember Big League Chew?
Now, if you know anything about me or have read much of my blog, you’ll know that I’m a bit of a sports junky. Raised in an athletic family, I was a tom-boy to the core. Well…I remember when a little thing called Big League Chew came out.
When I found the picture of the package online, it time warped me back to my little league years. My mouth brimming with those pink, skinny strands of sugar goodness. Spitting on the dugout floor like I was the long lost daughter of George Brett.
Did you know that it was created by Portland Mavericks left-handed pitcher Rob Nelson back in 1980? I was looking into it and found out that he pitched (ha, nice play on words–leave it to Wikpedia) as an alternative to the chewing tobacco.
It was awesome back then, so I’m not surprised Big League Chew is still popular today. Heck, I might even run out and get some tonight just so I can take a stroll down memory lane.
