Tonight: Electric Football, Tigers, Lions and Sparty!
For lots of boys in the late-1960s thru the 1970s, an electric football game under the Christmas tree was as indelible a memory as anything in childhood.
On tonight's show, we talk about EF with author Earl Shores, who co-wrote "The Unforgettable Buzz" with Roddy Garcia. The book is an exhaustive history of EF and Tudor Games, which was the first game company to market and distribute electric football, starting over 60 years ago.
Earl spends a fascinating 40 minutes with us, regaling us with stories about the game's beginnings, its heyday and its state right now as a collector's item. Check out their Facebook page, Like it, and be amazed with photos and other goodies throughout every week.
After Earl, we get into the Tigers' off-season, especially the trade of Doug Fister and the prospects of the team improving in left field. Then, sadly, it's some Lions talk, as we dissect the travesty in the snow in Philadelphia. Finally, we talk a little Sparty football and MSU's big win over Ohio State in the B1G Championship Game.
All that, plus "Whose Birthday Is It?" (at stake: home improvement by Belvedere) and "Jerk of the Week"!
It all starts at 7:00pm ET HERE!!
