What better way to celebrate Atari Day than taking a moment and remembering how HUGE Pac-Man was on the Atari 2600?

I can remember seeing this ad back in the day and even though my Family had been kind enough to already purchase Pac-Man for me I was adamant that we had to get to JCPenney just so I could get my hands on that awesome T-Shirt.

As you can imagine…this didn’t happen.

Now there is still plenty of time to get out there and celebrate Atari Day in style, you don’t need the JcPenney’s Pac-Man T-Shirt.

  1. You know it, Atari I/O! The arcade was a little slow this evening so I plopped down on the big red sofa and played me some Keystone Kapers…and then some Pressure Cooker. :D
