20 Years Ago Today…

Daryl Talley dared his coworkers to play.

Remember when football was fun.

The Bills and Oilers was blacked out. I think the game eventually sold out but not fast enough for TV. For whatever reason, I was tending to stuff around my west side apartment, and never left the stereo as Van Miller called the comeback for the ages. Each of the youtube clips below gives you a look as to what it looked like. There is a great column in the Buffalo News today that recalls the “greatest Comeback” as it unfolded.

When they pulled it out, it was like VJ Day. The armistice was signed and the Moon was defeated.
