The greatest sports game of all time (with Baseball Stars a close 2nd) might be making a comeback on the Nintendo WII and DS. Word on the street is the DS game will be a throwback version and the WII version will be 100% new. Man, oh man. First I get to hear about Vegas Runner's dad pulling pizza cutters on the homeboys, and now I read Super Tecmo Bowl is coming back. Similar to Ace's past, my circle of friends was not exactly a shining star or morality. BUT, despite all the shady stuff we did, we were 100% nerd when it came to a night of hanging out playing NES until the next day. Can still remember it like it was yesterday:
Fat Danny and the Bears losing almost every game. He would not switch teams because he was such a Chicago homer.
Mexican Tony and the Giants. LT around the corner was brutal.
Reno G (super long and complex Italian last name) and the 99%-1% pass attack using the Houston Texans.
The list goes on and on of all the characters that took part in our "seasons" and "tournaments" in the basement over on Barrie Street off Warren and Greenfield. Personally, I was a Tecmo Master with the 49ers. Fat Danny took it to a vote one time and tried to ban me from using my strategy of putting Jerry Rice at RB. With Jerry at RB and his speed rating so high you could run him from the backfield and also use him to catch passes. Almost unstoppable.
Now with a wife, two kids and a company on the other side of the country, time is limited. So wasting 24+ hours at a time with beer and video games is not an option to me. Between this, I try and fit in time to middle and bet AND still have a somewhat normal life. It seems the days of hitting the liquor store and getting some bum to buy us some 40's (only thing the stores in that area really carried) and sitting around talking shit with Tecmo on the tube. Happy with my life, but it seems shit was a lot simpler back than.....
