House of Vans at 50

Vans was founded in 1966 by brothers Paul and Jim Van Doren and their business partners Gordon Lee and Serge Delia. The brand’s first store was located in Anaheim, California and by the late 1970s, it had opened 70 shops in the state and gained a loyal following of West Coast surfers and skaters. Today, Vans has 415 shops around the world and two skate park-cum-entertainment venues in London and Brooklyn.

RIP Joe Garagiola


I remember fondly listening to radio broadcasts of the Twins with my grandfather. We would sit outside enjoying the perfection of a northern Minnesota summer as Herb Carneal would call the game over the pint-size transistor connection to Metropolitan Stadium. That summer, Rod Carew was flirting to hit 400 and Herb’s color commentary were my stories.

Baseball’s broadcast cathedral was NBC’s Game of the Week with Joe Garagiola (a last name I could never correctly pronounce) calling play-by-play with a playful style that was emblematic of the game. That’s the year baseball hooked me good. RIP Joe.

“Baseball is drama with an endless run and an ever-changing cast.”
– Joe Garagiola
