WTF Wednesday - Jim Boeheim Picks Nose and Licks Finger on TV

When I make a video that gets 3,500 views in a day, I guess I should post it here, too -

 

 

 

Here we see Syracuse men's Basketball coach Jim Boeheim picking his nose and immediately licking his finger. 

 

His use of a mask in a pandemic leaves much to be desired as well. Terrible example for the 20 young men he leads.  

 

All I can say, as I said in the video, is WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

Behind the T-shirt: Uncle Sam's Nightclub

 Uncle Sam's was a disco nightclub chain in several US cities from the mid 70s to the late 80s. 

 

There were clubs in Houston, Detroit, Providence, Levittown, Minneapolis, Buffalo, Des Moines, and Syracuse. At least. There were probably more. 

 


Uncle Sam's - "Let's Spend the Night Together"



Shiny Happy Customers Night in Buffalo looks like fun.



Shot of the Minneapolis merch table in 1977. T-shirts cost $3.99!



This 70s Uncle Sam's t-shirt seems to be from 1976. It's in great shape and ready to do the hustle. Check it out at Skippy Haha Vintage Etsy now!

Behind the T-shirt - Amigos Say Olé Elway!

 

When I saw this t-shirt graphic, I thought Amigos was a Mexican restaurant/bar in Denver celebrating some big wins by Elway in 1980, 1982, and 1984 with endless nachos.

 



I was way off. 


The 3 Amigos were Elway's wide receivers, and those were their jersey numbers.

 


According to the Mile High Report: "For about two years starting in 1987, there was John Elway and then there were the Three Amigos - Vance Johnson (82), Mark Jackson (80), and Ricky Nattiel (84). They were larger than life for that short period of time and it was a fun ride." 

No confirmation on whether they all fit under the same sombrero.
