Goodies From The Rocketeer

The Rocketeer is one of my all time favorite movies. I loved it from the first time I saw it back in 1991. Unfortunately, I didn't buy much of the merchandise that came out at the time. 20 years later I finally rectified that by picking up the souvenir magazine and these cool Pizza Hut collectibles.

I love the art on the pizza box and I would have drank all my drinks out of that cup back in college. I was thrilled to get this stuff and they whetted my appetite to get more collectibles from this great film.

Royals Stadium Through The Years

As another baseball season approaches, I'm again looking forward to visiting one of my favorite places, Kaufmann Stadium, home of my childhood baseball team the Kansas City Royals. Although they're always terrible on the field, the stadium is a thing of beauty. The renovations it underwent a few years ago will keep it viable for years to come regardless of how bad the Royals are. Here are a few postcards showing how the stadium looked through the years since it opened in 1973.
