    AvengerRam: Old-school, globe-trotting Rams fan!

    I recently scanned some old photos for my Facebook page, including this one I thought you all might find interesting. That's me on the right (1987, age 19) in Cairo. Notice the hat...



    The hat has long-since worn out, but I actually still have the old-style logo patch.

    I was born 2 years after that picture was taken but seriously, cool picture, it's too bad you still don't have the hat. That would be pretty wicked.

    Nice pic Av. Ya gotta love those old railroad engineer style caps with the wide flat brims!

    That beer bottle is almost as big as you. Speaking of beer, what was the drinking age in Cairo back then?

    I was about to say that, almost verbatim.

    Man your old AV- almost time to retire? I kid I kid.

    Old school is definitely where its at, the only yellow and blue regalia I own I got when I weighed like ninety pounds. For some reason I can't wear any of that stuff now...

    I have to say the other guy looks a bit grim. Haunted,even. Is that Papa Avenger? Possible thought bubble: "Kid pukes in my bathroom again after one beer & I'm having him mummified,I swear."

    I honestly don't remember what the drinking age was in Cairo. I suspect that if you were an American with $$$ (the exchange rate was very U.S. friendly back then) they wouldn't ask too many questions.

    That beer was called Stella and it came in a bottle that was something like 30 ounces.

    The other guy was a friend from Denmark (I always thought he looked a bit like Simon LeBon from Duran Duran). I was in Cairo with him and another friend for a 4 day trip at the end of a Summer in Israel.

    As for the hat... I wish I still had it too, but I wore it a lot (and in a lot of places). It had a good life.
