Valentine's Day 2008 is upon us. In the spirit of hearts and baseball, I've decided to post an image from the 1954 Red heart set. What better way to show someone that you care than by giving them a red heart. Come to think of it, wasn't Red Heart a dog food brand?
OK, it's the perfect thing for that blind date you were forced into today because you felt the need for a stab at companionship and/or romance on Valentine's Day. Keep the cards and give the blind date the dog food.
Do you want to spend a romantic evening with that blind date, but don't want to shell out the big bucks for a fancy dinner? Or suppose you just got shut out of all the good restaurants because you didn't make your reservations early enough. You're in luck if you live near a White Castle. They are offering reservations to dine at their fine restaurant with a candlelit, tableside feast. Whatever that means.
For those of you brave enough or financially strapped enough to have a romantic evening out at White Castle, give it a try. Nothing says Valentine's Day like tiny hamburgers made for drunk people. Side effects may vary. Proceed with caution around significant other. Natural gas leaks may occur suddenly. Void where Krystals are available.
For those of you that have a long distance relationship or are too cheap to spring for a candlelit dinner at a fast food location, there are online cards to send. I found a doozy involving the White Sox and Indians. You can send a Joe Jackson card online for any occasion. There are several pictures of Joe in his White Sox uniform and in his Indians uniform. There are also pictures of his glove and his shoes and his statue. It should spice up any sports lover's Valentine's Day. You're welcome.
Now back to the 1954 Red Heart Sherm Lollar card. Isn't he dreamy girls? What better card to give or receive than the gift of old baseball cards? These are the cards that should be exchanged on Valentine's Day. Not some sappy, love stricken opportunity to beg for some good lovin'. Baseball cards will get a better response.
