The Peacock Network has a free preview this weekend and I saw that they have every episode of Saturday Night Live on it. I’m a huge fan of the original cast up until about the mid-1990s and I watched the first couple of episodes because I have never watched them. The first episode was hosted by George Carlin and the second episode was hosted by Paul Simon. Simon brought on Art Garfunkel for a Simon & Garfunkel reunion of sorts. I guess they had broken up at this point. Anyway, that got me thinking of the last time Simon & Garfunkel performed together. A quick search brought up the video above of Art Garfunkel doing a concert in California in 2019. I noticed that he is wearing an old school K-State Willie the Wildcat t-shirt during this concert. That got me curious as to his ties to K-State and wondering why he is wearing the t-shirt.
I looked at his Wiki page and there is no reference to K-State, Manhattan, or Kansas. I searched on various search engines and haven’t found anything. I thought I’d put it out to the masses to see if anyone knows the story about this. I think it’s cool and I’ve never heard anything about it. Feel free to share with your friends. I’d like to know. Thanks!
