going back in time

This painfully dated poster was hanging out on the wall at the Edison Johnson Rec Center today outside of the racquetball court.  Looking at it, I can’t help but see my mustachioed dad as the hero of the poster wielding his racquet back in 1979.  I am left, however, wondering where this man’s protective eyewear is as well as why he doesn’t have any blood on his forearm from running into the wall one too many times.  Awesome wristbands and t-shirt though!

Checking out the Durham Parks and Rec website, they describe this center as one of Durham’s “four large state-of-the-art recreational facilities.”  While I’m sure the inside of the facility is amazing, this poster seems to contradict the “state-of-the-art” claim unless they are going for retro cool…

**Thank you to my eagle-eyed friend for spotting this poster gem!
