June 27, 2014: Sunglasses Day; Captain Kangaroo's Birthday

June 27, 2014: I guess having Sunglasses Day in June makes sense, but we’ve probably all already broken out the shades by this time of year. At any rate, let’s all look super-cool with our shades.


Today is also Captain Kangaroo’s Birthday (Bob Keeshan, born today in 1927). Kids, this is the kind of thing we watched on TV when we were young. None of your Teletubbies or Doodlebops or Wiggles or Yo Gabba Gabba; we had an old man in a bad hairpiece being pelted in the head with ping pong balls. AND WE LIKED IT.
