Thank you! It was even more of a treat because it is so rare for me but I tell you what, I am going to try to wear classic gaming related shirts as much as possible when traveling / on the road etc lol.

Great idea!! Mind if I ask what size t-shirt you wear, MaximumRD? I'm going to find out what we have and maybe Justin can send you some more classic gaming shirts  B)

GREAT video MaximumRD! I love stories like that! There's a special camaraderie when you meet another retrogamer out in the wild. It's exciting enough as it is on YouTube, but it's another thing entirely to meet them randomly in a restaurant. Shirts like your Intellivision shirt invite those sort of moments.

That would be wonderful! The hard part though maybe, I am 6ft 4" 240pnds , a big guy, I tend to like loose and comfy so 3XXXL is best.
