Anonus and hir Thrift Store VHS Tapes

If you don't know, there was a period when I got lots of things taped off TV from thrift stores around my area. I popped in a random tape I have yet to watch and am rewinding it to its beginning. This is an informal liveblog of what's on it and others.

    this one must be very long

    it also seems to have been taped over a bunch, because its label had things crossed out and new things written next to them

    I don't care for Ice Soccer

    There must be something later on this tape that's more to my liking

    Disney's foray into professional sports team ownership has not lasted into the present day; they would also purchase the California Angels MLB team in two deals in 1996 and 1998, but sell it off in 2003. The Ducks were sold in 2005 and the Disney reference was scrubbed from its name the following year.

    It's the one where they went to Africa.
