Classic Photo: Brett Favre’s Sports Poster-Filled Dorm Room, c.1989

An awesome picture somehow dug up by the sports gossip site TerezOwens.com! Some of the great old-school posters seen on Brett’s ceiling: Jose Canseco “40-40”, Jerry Rice “Goldfingers”, Michael Jordan “Big-Time” Door-Sized, Bo Jackson “Double Trouble” (Royals & Raiders), Dwight Gooden 1980s SI Poster, Joe Montana “Job Security”, and what looks like QB posters of Randall Cunningham and Warren Moon, among others. (Note that TerezOwens calls this “Brett Favre at 23”, but that would date this picture at 1992, when he was already an NFL QB with the Atlanta Falcons. Most likely, this is Brett in his Southern Miss dorm room, circa 1989.

Jackie Robinson Day: A lasting legacy

Baseball holidays rarely transcend outside the sport — you celebrate Opening Day, but it doesn’t have an impact outside baseball and its fans. But Jackie Robinson Day is a different case, as April 15 celebrates a day that resonates across all sports and American culture. The day commemorates the anniversary of Robinson’s major-league debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, a landmark moment as the first African-American to break baseball’s color barrier.


No image captures that historic aspect of the day better than this photo taken from April 15, 1947 — Robinson, arm in arm with three white Dodgers teammates: Spider Jorgensen, Pee Wee Reese, and Eddie Stanky. This was a sport embracing something in a way that helped society do the same.

What do you remember most about Jackie Robinson? If you’ve seen the new movie “42” celebrating his life, what did you like best about the movie? This is a day to celebrate all things Jackie Robinson, so your comments are welcome.

Celebrating the life of Jackie Robinson

This is a huge weekend for Jackie Robinson fans — Monday, of course, is Jackie Robinson Day, when major-league baseball celebrates his legacy every year on the anniversary of his historic debut in 1947. This year has a much greater awareness of Robinson because the movie that chronicles his life “42” — opens nationally in theaters today, bringing the unforgettable story of a baseball pioneer to another generation.



Sports Poster Warehouse has a great collection of beautiful posters of Robinson and his contemporaries — perhaps the most iconic is this shot of Robinson stealing home during a 1952 game. This rare, bold feat is Robinson exemplified, requiring equal parts courage and athleticism. He did so 20 times in his major-league career, and it’s synonymous enough with his success that biographies have been named “Stealing Home.”

What makes this photograph so memorable? Perhaps it’s the ballcap literally flying off his head the instant the picture was taken, or the perfection of his slide, or the look of the supporting cast, from the outstretched catcher to the umpire and teammate watching. Robinson even stole home in a World Series game — in 1955 against the Yankees, with Yogi Berra catching — and you can see a video of that play here. But if you’re looking for a single image that captures Jackie Robinson’s amazing baseball career, this poster might be it.
