In an effort to continue to pay homage to baseball season, these RFH baseball of a more casual kind retro pics, originally posted on April 10, 2019 are being reprised. Have you ever had a tackle strategy like this in your ball game?
Isn’t football the tackle sport? Well, that may be, but by the looks of things in this 1970s home run classic in the outfield, these RFH baseball players paid no mind to standard sports protocol. It was really all about the fun and laughs for them.
Play ball! Well, spring has arrived and RFH Baseball season is set to start soon — on April 9 with a home JV game at Meadow Ridge. Time will tell whether or not vaccines will hit COVID-19 out of the park, but the game is on and the RFH players are set for a home run season.
Since rainy days and Tuesdays sometimes get you down, it’s the perfect time to look back again on some upbeat lazy days of lounging at RFH as a junior. So, we reprise this Retro Pic of the Day originally posted in 2018 on, you guessed it, a rainy day …
Out came the sun on Monday. Then came the dank, drizzly rain on Tuesday. Everyone feels it. Even high schoolers. And everyone knows that usually with that dreary weather comes a little bit of an antsy, lackadaisical mood — especially for students cooped up in a high school all day. Yes, when it rains, it tends to pour mischief in the high school halls. Call it a little shut-in sickness.
Snow day, anyone? Really, what’s an RFH student to do when the studying mood hasn’t struck, the weather stinks and a little peppering of now is not quite snow day worthy? Hang out in the Senior Lounge and play backgammon, of course. Or something like that. We stress “something like that.”
Call it Halloween buddy system brooming. Remember the old buddy system? Trick or treating with a buddy to stay safe. Ever apply that theory in high school tricks with the only treat being the friendship and good ride through it all together?
Well, this gruesome twosome of best buds applied the system for some double trouble all in good ghoulish fun. Now that’s a special brand of mischief. You could say they were headed every witch way on this Halloween in the late 1970s, except to class.
The two would be Sue Brower and Bonnie Werner of the RFH Class of ’78.
So the double-dose Retro Pic(s) of the (George) Day feature them at their Halloween best.
A Halloween reprise to honor the season of the ghost …
Scary season has set in. People in the Rumson-Fair Haven area aren’t just out raking leaves, either. They’re haunting up their homes, crafting costumes and getting into the spirit. So, why not add a little extra retro spooking from RFH students of the past?
BOO … who or what? It was all in the haunt for RFHers back in the 1970s. They started getting the Halloween party going early on and ended up with a pretty festive feast of ghouls on the grounds of the high school and, yes, beyond.
