I have always been a huge football fan. I played football in high school until a knee injury cut short my road to the NFL (just kidding), but my love of the game continues to this day. When I was a kid, there was a football game that I received one Christmas that I spent countless hours playing. The game was powered by electricity. The game board was designed as a football field, and there were 22 little plastic players that would form two teams. The players were about 2 to 3 inches tall, with a rubber piece on the bottom that had two flanges that you could move directionally and in theory affect how the piece would move on the board once the power button was hit.
