Topless at Fenway Park

27 Jul

When I first saw this picture, which dates from 1983, I figured that it must’ve been an Orioles game, with many of the fans in the stands wearing orange shirts.  But upon closer inspection it became clear that the majority of the supporters in Fenway Park’s outfield were topless.  Speaking with a co-worker who was going to ballgames in the early 1980s, this was apparently not such an out-of-the-ordinary sight.

Now I know that there is no rule about wearing shirts at the ballpark (for men at least, or is there?), but I can’t recall seeing this today.  I mean, to see such nudity on a large scale would surely catch my attention.  Has anybody seen this much skin at a game lately? Any ideas why or why not? How have you noticed how ballpark attire has changed in the last 25 years?

But the fact that the Red Sox are hosting the Brewers that day reminded me that these uniforms and this logo have always been among my favorites.

Let me know what you think about baseball topplessness, ill vintage graphic design, or the combination of powder blue and yellow in the comments.

Flickr Gets Video!

9 Apr

Look here.

Looks as if Yahoo has given flickr video capabilities. Videos are limited to 90 seconds and the privilege to upload has been limited to Pro users. A cool group with some of the early video additions to flickr can be seen in this group here. While it remains to be seen whether this new service will be any sort of rival to youtube, it will definitely be great to see what kinds of things that those who habitually view life through a lens will share with this moving picture format. I think it’s all kinda neat. O, and check this one from Norby.
