Happy 100th Birthday Gordon Parks

Dear Reader,

In case you forgot who Gordon Parks was, let me give you a little hint. The first few keys will remind you:

Gordon Parks, born on November 30th, 1912, directed this classic movie Shaft.

He is also remembered for his brilliant work as a photographer for Vogue, Life and others:

Now, Glynsky, of course, is celebrating something entirely different today:

Because 140 years ago, the first “official international” soccer game took place.

On the 30th of November 1872 Scotland played England.

How is that for international?

And this famous game ended with a spectacular result,
– like many of those thrilling games:

0 : 0


Boy, I wish I could have been there.
The spectators must have been beside themselves.

Anyway, I am raising my glass to Gordon Parks!
