    Superbowl I

    Packers-Chiefs Super Bowl Video Found at Last - WSJ.com

    Unless they were one of the 61,946 people at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum that day, or one of the fans who watched it live on NBC or CBS, there's one thing that all football fans have in common: They've never actually seen the game.
    In a bizarre confluence of events, neither network preserved a tape. All that survived of this broadcast is sideline footage shot by NFL Films and roughly 30 seconds of footage CBS included in a pre-game show for Super Bowl XXV. Somehow, an historic football game that was seen by 26.8 million people had, for all intents and purposes, vanished.
    Near the time we last went to the moon.

    That's kind of ridiculous, actually. And the guy just donated it to be restored? Surely he could have gotten a lot of money for something like that, no?

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Saw it, enjoyed it, relived it often. Still remember catching the game with my dad. Who needs film when you've got warm memories?

    Re: Superbowl I

    Doesn't sound like that guy had the express written consent of the NFL to tape the game. Time to burn it!

    That's a cool find. I've often wondered about things being found in attics and why they stay there so long. Then I bought a house that was only 7 years old and found a ton of crap up there. No secret Super Bowl tape, though.

    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    If I read the article correctly, he's keeping the restored original, and allowing the museum to keep a copy.

    While I was joking about the "express written consent of the NFL", according to the article, the NFL asserts that the film is their property. So he can't sell it. Until the lawsuit is over, anyway.
