Re: Anyone Rember Barts and Leaguers?

Holy smokes! I sure do remember the Barts and Leaguers. My understanding was that the Barts weren't a street gang, but more of a "lifestyle choice". They wore Big Bens and t-shirts and the hair was the "jelly-roll" style. I think the "Barts vs. Leaguers" evolved into the "surfers vs, greasers" thing a few years later, and eventually into the hippie vs. non-hippie thing. I remember going to Fernando Rivera school and having one acquaintance tell me he decided he was going to be a Bart. What memories.
