During the non-hockey months of the Summer, to get my fix, I watch old games and write about them as if I’m my current age in that year.
For example, when talking about a game from 1975, I pretend that I was born in 1940 and write about the game, as if it just happened, view the eyes of a 35 year old on the date of the game.
In these blogs, I also give you what was going on in the world at the time, what was hot in pop-culture, the cost of various items and so much more, including pictures & video. To add more authenticity, I also try to buy or acquire game programs from the game I’m reviewing & show you what a program from that era looked like. I believe once you check out one of these Delorean blogs, you’ll enjoy all of them.
To go with the whole going back in time thing, the blogs are linked here, with the newest Delorean blog at the top.
