Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Inf, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army Nat'l Guard! Good luck to those down south.

Here be the NFLShop.com link.

The list:

* Super Bowl XXXI: Packers over Patriots (26 Jan 97)
* 2007 NFC Divisional: Packers over Seahawks (12 Jan 08)
* Monday Night Football: Packers over Raiders (22 Dec 03)
* Packers over Bengals (Favre debuts) (20 Sep 92)
* 2003 NFC Wild Card: Packers over Seahawks (4 Jan 04)
* 1997 NFC Championship: Packers over 49ers (11 Jan 98)
* Monday Night Football: Packers over Redskins (17 Oct 83)
* Packers vs. Bears (Favre 5 TDs) (12 Nov 95)
* Monday Night Football: Packers over 49ers (14 Oct 96)
* 1996 NFC Championship: Packers over Panthers (12 Jan 97)

Before you ask...these are basically the network airchecks of the games, as we all saw 'em at home on TV. That's why there's no Ice Bowl...CBS lost their recording of the game a long time ago. (And if they taped it on kinescope, like I fear, it's since rotted away to nothing.) And Super Bowl I and II are available on other NFL-issued DVDs, I believe.

On to the ones they missed:
* 1989 "instant replay" game at Lambeau to beat Da Bears. Still the source of an asterisk in the Bears' media guide to this day...heh heh heh.
* 1982 strike-year playoff at Lambeau vs. the St. Louis Cardinals. First playoff game in GB since Ice Bowl.
* 1994 wild-card game at Lambeau where they held Barry Sanders to -2 yards rushing. First playoff game in GB since...see above. (Was there.)
* 1997 mauling of the Cowboys at Lambeau, 52-17. Very cathartic...damn you, Deion Sanders, for ruining it! (Was there.)
* 1994 late-season win over the Falcons at Milwaukee County Stadium (last game ever there) where Favre dives for a TD.
* Nothing from the NFC Central title year of 1972? Groan...
* 1961 NFL title game at Lambeau, where Lombardi whips his old ballclub, the Giants, 37-0 for his first championship.
* 1962 NFL title game...rematch, but in Yankee Stadium. Pack wins, and Bart Starr swears to this day that that game was colder than the Ice Bowl. No lie.
* Nothing from 1965? The awesome playoff game vs. the Browns, or Chandler's kick to beat the Colts? Groan again...
* Or how about the Sunday night game in 1993 where Reggie White sacked Elway twice in a row to seal the win? (Watched that one from a bar on base in Augusta, GA.)

Should've been a 15-DVD set. :-)

If you are going to buy it from NFL Shop, you might want to wait an extra week and a half. Last season, they had 20% off during the opening Monday Night Games. I remember this as I look at my helmet from the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants that I purchased that evening.

I remember watching the monday night game against the 'skins as a wee boy. even then, i knew I was watching something special. Is that still the highest scoring monday night game in NFL history?

Where's the MNF overtime win over Minnesota when Antonio Freeman made that unbelievable catch for the game-winning TD?



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

He was over the damn line!

Where's the 10/21/85 game where the Fridge scores his first TD and I think he actually killed George Cumby? ;)

"He did WHAT!?" --Al Michaels

Sad thing is...I was running our live truck that night @ Lambeau. One of our shooters got the catch even better than the MNF crew did. He hands the tape to our intern, who runs it outta the stadium and to me in the truck.

It was rainy that night...and intern didn't protect the tape from the rain during his run.

When I put it into the Beta SX deck in the truck...the tape BROKE. I had a pile of videotape at my feet in the damn truck. My postgame reporter on the sidelines couldn't believe it...and when I told the shooter, he damn near cried.

Sad damned TV moment.

And for the rest of you...the refs eventually said Majik was NOT over the line. So nyahh, nyahh.

And The Fridge sucks. :-)

Ugh. Intern probably tripped somewhere along the line too, but man Beta tape only seems to break if it's something really amazing. That B-roll of people filing into an arena that you've tossed into a cardboard box over and over... will somehow outlast every Master Tape that's been carefully babied.

True dat, madam.

Even funnier is the fact that it's 2008, and I'm still shooting/editing on a tape whose plastic cassette holding the precious ribbon of tape hasn't changed from the Betamax VCR days. (For real!)

You kids and your computers and digital this and that...phooey! :-)

Seriously. I bet kids these days have never spent hours learning to flick cigarette butts with deadly accuracy while waiting for tapes to digitize or videos to render.

Anybody see this yet? Saw it tonight and thought it was very entertaining. Lots of subtle humor and quite a few laugh out loud moments. I generally hate Rene Zellwegger, but she was actually tolerable. John Kasinski, Kazniski, Kannicki?
