"Saturday nights I usually take some person of an interesting sex to a hockey or basketball game, or maybe a fight at the Garden" -Archie Goodwin, Too Many Women, 1947

1) .... were boxing matches a popular place for dates in the 40s? Or sports matches in general? o.0

2) I find it funny that Archie never mentions football. It is wired how it has gone from an also ran off sports to THE big American spot in what, two generations? Got big in the 70s?

3) I'm stealing "person of an interesting sex" though I'd probably move it to "person of an interesting gender"....
