This summer I picked up some 1971 Sports Illustrateds at a garage sale. After meticulously reading the issues while in the john, here are some of the ads I found intriguing.

Because cleats work better when they are sticking into your foot.

Looks like some hippies didn’t know how to spell.

When I think of Ted Williams, a flying lesson is the first idea that pops into my mind.

Or Brooks Robinson when it comes to projectors.

That was a pretty nice way to say that it will handle a hangover headache.

Or it could be crabs.

Well, I must be out of beer.
