Blast from the Past

11 Jun

Oh yeah – give me some classic Football.  This is another one of mom’s cherished childhood games.  Can you believe that daddy actually had one as well?  He doesn’t know where his went – but leave it to my mommy who.saves.EVERYTHING.  This game actually came out in 1977.  I think it’s a fossil now – snorts.

I checked this out on EBay.  They range from around $30.00 to $150.00 now new.  Can you believe that?  All of these ‘classics’  are making a come back.  Mommy didn’t even like football when she got hers as a child but she said she played the heck out of that thing!

Did you have one?

      Snorts. Mom had a lot of weird toys as a child. I guess that’s why she is the way she is today – two steps past crazy – PLOL. XOXO – Bacon

    Never saw one or heard of this before…but (gasp!) I’m not a huge football fan, either. Looks like it was probably very entertaining.

    Self promoting…I think you’ll like my post today, Bacon. 😉
