Posted November 04, 2018 03:18:13The New York Post Sports Writer for Sports Illustrated Chris Githard has been a lifelong Beatles fan and even started his own blog about the band, “The Beatles Poster Contest”.
Githard, an Army veteran, had been working at the Times Square Times Square building for more than a decade, when he started looking for a place to write about the music and culture of New York.
He found the Beatles website and, after a brief conversation with the team’s director of creative, Mark Pardue, he started writing about the postcard phenomenon.
“I was like, ‘I’m going to do this thing for a living,'” Githards said.
“He’s like, oh, well, you know, ‘yeah, sure, but we don’t really care about that, we just want to get this out there and we want you to know how it’s going’.”
I just sort of went with it.
I’m the one who said, ‘You know, if we ever do it again, we’re going to write it all over again’.
“Githards covered the Beatles’ “One More Saturday Night” and “Revolution 9”, and eventually, he wrote a feature on the postcards, entitled “Why Are People So Angry At You?”.”
I kind of wanted to tell the story of how these iconic images got so out of control, and why people are so angry about it,” Githhardt said.
Githhardt, who has since moved on to cover the New York Rangers and New York Jets, said that “The Postcards” was one of the first articles he wrote about the group, and has since been covered by other outlets, including ABC News, CBS News and USA Today.”
The Post Cards” became an instant hit, with the first postcard to be posted in 2012.
The Times Square Postcard Contest was founded in 2005, and the competition was one the first of its kind, with each participant having to choose the best postcard from their portfolio.
The winner received a poster and a commemorative pin, and was then awarded $50.
The contest has continued to grow, with entries being submitted every day for five years, and each winner has been given a plaque to hang on their wall.”
Githandard has continued his work as a sports writer and is now a sports columnist for The New York Times Magazine.”
And people have just come up with amazing things that have been created by people who have really been inspired by the images that have come before them.”
