For some reason I have written more entries for this goal than any other. Isn’t that saying something?
Any who, after searching far and wide for pogs, I have finally found some! And in all places I found them in Peru! While technically they aren’t called pogs, it’s pretty much the same thing. Instead they are plastic, and you buy stickers that you place on the fronts!
I was pretty impressed and cleared out the guy who was selling them on the side of the street.
They are coming back baby!
So I just performed a speech about POGS for my public speaking class. Everyone seemed really excited about it and I got some people interested in wanting to play again.
I think my next step is starting an official POG club at my school. With the first rule of POG club being…
You don’t talk about POG club.
If I can accomplish only one thing in my life, something that will change the lives of all that will come across it, to bring something beautiful, something extraordinary, something…old school. It is my mission, nah, my DESTINY to…
BRING POGS BACK!
POGS a creation of the early 90’s consist of hitting a pile of cardboard circles with kewlio designs on them, such as a skate boarder with the words “RAD” or crossbones with the words “POISON” You then use your SLAMMER to try and flip over as many pogs face up.
POGS were so big that they even got banned from my school!
Currently I am forming a POG club with my friends. Back in H.S. I had secret POG games during Track practice. I also made a pog shirt that says POGS on the front and the phrase “Bringin Em Back” on the back.
So I encourage everyone to hold weekly POG tournaments and together we can, BRING POGS BACK!
