I recall a few moments of the Chiefs winning Super Bowl IV. I understand Dawson threw only 17 passes in the game and the defense gave up only 2 rushing first downs. Any other memories of the game?

It was before my time as well. Last year during the week before the Super Bowl, ESPN Classic ran half hour highlight shows of each Super Bowl. I managed to set the recorder for SB IV, or I never would have seen any of it.

Anyone who's interested may want to see if they do that again this year.

Honeymooners was over by then. Lawrence Welk was pretty big though.

I was 9 and just remember a great defensive game on both sides. Could have gone either way but the Chiefs defense made all the right calls/plays.

When Otis Taylor caught the sideline pass for a TD you knew it was over, that and Kapp getting knocked out of the game and a big Chief lineman patting Kapp on the helmet.

Life was good. Then my brother ptlyon was born about 3 weeks later and the Chiefs curse had begun. I'm not sure how to break the curse and will let the rest of you decide what to do about it.

The conventional wisdom of the day held that you could not run outside in the NFL. We ran the flanker reverse to Frank Pitts several times and got outside each time. Then there was 65 Toss Power Trap with Mike Garrett going untouched up the middle for a TD.

I have a copy of it on Super 8, found it at a flea market in the late 70's. Has the entire game in black and white. I was 14 at game time. Remember almost the whole game. Even remember Al Hirt and Doc Severinson playing trumpets at half time. Hirt was wearing a Viking hat and Severinson was wearing an indian headress.

That would be a plate nobody could figure out. They also had a Toss Power Sweep which was the same play except they tossed it to Garrett and he went outside with it. They used it to set up 65 TPT.

I will always root for their demise, and cheer their defeats. That said I always pull for the AFC in the Superbowl (old AFL guy) I have some life long friends who have been Chiefs fans through it all :shake: for their sake I would not mind seeing KC get a ring.

The town I live in is a joke when the Chiefs are winning there is red everywhere, when they lose poof it is all gone. For the diehards it would be cool. The sad truth is most times when I meet Chiefs fans I know more about the Chiefs following them as a rival than they do as a decked out in red fan :rolleyes:

Just so you know, this auction isn't all that rare. I usually see one or two listed every time I have searched for it the past few months. They usually end at $25 or more, and I just haven't had the spare cash to splurge on it yet. So if you don't win this one, or if the price gets too high for ya, there will probably be another one listed before long.

Yep. I remember trying adjust the picture on the screen to offset some of the scrambling. I could occasionally, if conditions were just right, see a breast or something, which made the hours of work worthwhile. (These kids have no idea what it was like to be a teenager before the Internet.)

Even better, our local cable company would occasionally have free "check out all our stations" weekends, and for some reason would unscramble the soft porn channels, too. There'd be no warning that I ever saw, but all of a sudden you'd start flipping channels and realize that you were getting all of them, and of course my parents had no idea that there was a soft porn channel. We had one TV, conveniently located in the living room, and I'd be feeding my parents turkey and barbituates and yawning and everything else to get them to go to bed early, so I could sneak the channel to the porn and watch with the sound turned all the way down. Since we didn't have a remote, it was a very, very risky mission, but I was very, very highly motivated.

I remember one weekend when they left on a vacation and I was alone in the house, and it all happened on "free channels" weekend. I think I watched Lady Chatterly's Lover six times.

A key element of humor is to take an element that is not necessarily funny in and of itself, and exaggerate it to an extent that it generates a sense of surprise among the reader. In the case you mention, the poster took a topic of past discussion (Skip Towne's age), and exaggerated it to create an appearance that Skip was alive during the Renaissance. The post also highlighted changes in technology during the past 400 years to illustrate the fact that a person who was alive 400 years ago would have had severe limitations on his options for pursuing prurient interests. By combining this technology issue with the exaggeration of Skip's age, humor was created.

Honeymooners was over by then. Lawrence Welk was pretty big though.

I was 9 and just remember a great defensive game on both sides. Could have gone either way but the Chiefs defense made all the right calls/plays.

When Otis Taylor caught the sideline pass for a TD you knew it was over, that and Kapp getting knocked out of the game and a big Chief lineman patting Kapp on the helmet.

Life was good. Then my brother ptlyon was born about 3 weeks later and the Chiefs curse had begun. I'm not sure how to break the curse and will let the rest of you decide what to do about it.

Sacrifice your brother!

NFL films (ESPN Classic & ESPN) will show the mic’d-up highlight reel during Superbowl month. The Sabol boys knocked on Stram’s hotel room door in an attempt to mic him on the sideline prior to this game. Stram said no. The Boy’s countered with money. Stram said “ok.” In addition, Stram was in his pajamas while negotiating with the Sabol’s. Stram was also mic’d for a previous game in KC Municipal stadium (Miami). This was part of a NFL film about the old AFL. Great color movie footage from several stadiums, including Memorial. I did watch Superbowl IV. Otis down the sideline! Touchdown! High kick followed by your basic spike.
