    Hey James, since you're a film guy and all, you may want to check out NFL Films from the 60's and 70's. You may be impressed with the cinametics.

    Ok Nerd after all these years I can safely say that Metallica would the best halftime show the NFL has ever seen. A kickass band for a shitty sport sounds kinda contradictory though…

    I wonder why he never followed up on these Atari Sports Games with NES Sports Games. I still stand by my opinion that Ice Hockey is THE best sports game ever made. (Although, the Bases Loaded games are pretty darned good, too.)

    John Madden was a couch for the LA Raiders in the 70s-80s and then was a commentator for the NFL.

    I remember telling a guild I was a part of in WoW that I'm going to be unavailable for a raid, but I'll hapilly go with them on a raid on a different day and the reason for that was that I went to watch a Liverpool FC match since it's my favorite football team and they were like "uhmm… you like football? Sports?" xD.

    Well I love sports, I love football, pro wrestling, but I also love games, fantasy, sci-fi and I'm a writer.

    That was a funny experience and I thought I'd share it here since I'm rewatching the whole AVGN series again.

    As someone who has been following him since the beginning, I think this is the best AVGN episode… so many great moments. For those who prefer the silent on screen reactions of the Nerd to the random cursing (both have their place, to be clear) this one delivers big time. The whole lead in at 3:30 is possibly my favorite Nerd moment.
