Please feel free to chat about the Super Bowl in this all-purpose thread. In honor of the occasion, my first and probably last game review:
A replica of the greatest game ever, Mattel Handheld Electronic Football.
Cons: Lack of true button sensibility, defense didn’t behave exactly as I remembered, one-quarter instead of four-quarter capability, team always takes over on its own 20 rather than where the other team left the ball.
Pros: It’s a replica of the greatest game ever, Mattel Handheld Electronic Football.

Pete Townshend is performing at halftime with Roger Daltrey, and it’s time to face the Face. Elroy Face, that other minor-leaguer the Dodgers let go the Pirates in the 1950s, was interviewed by David Laurila of Baseball Prospectus. It’s a good read.
On the other hand, Dodger fans of my vintage will probably be disappointed by this documentary: The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of Jose Gonzalez.
