Historical Perspective

There's a great pictorial retrospective about football video games over at si.com today.

I really miss those days. Especially in today's world of having to read defenses, call out hot routes and wait 5 minutes while some douche you're playing in orange county changes matchups. That's right, Z, I'm calling you out.

And no matter what happened afterwards, I still threw for 80 touchdowns one year. 80 TDs.

I don't get this.

Six Flags Magic Mountain is putting in a CSI themed live entertainment show. I understand the need for shows...its a way to corral 500-1000 park guests at a time out of the lines in the park and offer a place to cool down, and depending on the show quality, provide a little entertainment. But CSI?

Its certainly a popular TV show still, but building a theme park show around the idea is just ridiculous. With ideas like this, its no wonder Six Flags' stock price is under $2 and in threat of being dropped by the NYSE.
