Total Team Control

I don't know about you, but this story in the Post has got me all nostalgic for my Tudor Electric Fotball Game. Mine was from 1977, and included the teams from Super Bowl X (Cowboys and Steelers), which means I got the teams for Super Bowl XIII free. The story notes that a company called Miggle Toys bought Tudor in 1992, pretty much because the owner fondly remembered electric football and wanted to keep it alive. A quick browse of their site brings back waves of memories -- even thirty years later the little guys with real NFL uniforms give me a thrill.

The funny thing is: I never once completed a game of electric football. Can't say that I ever even finished a quarter of electric football. Even the time I played was more frustration than anything -- passing was a joke, as the average pass went about 650 yards clear out of the stadium. But I still loved it. Weird.
