Did you know that music wasn’t Bob Marley’s only passion? The Jamaican reggae singer and musician was also involved in association football, which we know better as soccer. In fact, soccer played an important role in his life. He played the sport whenever he could and sometimes even kicked the ball around in the recording studio. He was a huge fan of the English football organization, the Tottenham Hot spurs and the team’s midfielder, Ossie Ardiles, an Argentinian. He immersed himself in the soccer scene and hung around professional soccer players. In 1970, he hired former Jamaican footballer Allan ‘Skill’ Cole to be his tour manager.

With her toned body, impossibly tiny waist, and stunning good looks, it is no wonder that beautiful Betty Brosmer was one of the most prolific modes of the 1950s. She was always athletic and enjoyed fitness, which helped her to maintain her figure. At the age of 13, she appeared in a catalog. That gig helped her catch the eye of pin-up photographers, Alberto Vargas and Earl Moran. She was just 15 years old when she moved to New York City in 1950 to work as a full-time model. Although she was only 15, the make-up, clothing, hairstyles, and poses she did as a pin-up model made her look ten years old.
