Feelin' 7-up?

I guess 7-up is the go-to drink of 1980s sports superstars, who knew?! In 1984, George Brett, Mike Schmidt, Magic Johnson and Sugar Ray Leonard teamed up to represent their respective sports (baseball, basketball and boxing if you don't know) with a soda pop and a smile - 7-up style. Not much to say about this ad, because there's actually nothing to it, except it reminds me of a swim-meet trip I took when I was about 9. We went to a Kansas City Royals game and I got to meet George Brett after the game. He gave me a hat and signed it. I was very impressed with my 9 year old self. I still have that hat, too, somewhere...
