    wow, this is kinda sad
    i remember that like it was yesterday
    i was about to turn nine yrs old
    i know im not old by normal standards
    but athletes are younger than me now (im currently 22)
    and players i once rooted for are retiring and going to the hall of fame etc
    seriously, does this make me old?!?!

    Me too. I don't remember the Boston Redskins or the Boston Yanks, but I do remember when the Cleveland Browns were televised into New England because there were no Patriots. After two or three years of the Browns, the Giants games were televised. Finally, in 1960, the Patriots arrived. We still didn't get no respect, to quote another Rodney, as a lot of the Patriots games weren't on TV in the early years.

    I remember Gino, The Babe, human bulldozer Jim Nance, and when Nick Buoniconti was a good guy. ;)

    I was little but I remember the Browns. Loved Jimmy Brown. Man did I hate as a kid having the NEW YORK Giants stuffed down our throats. The hype for Sam Huff. For ages the Jints were my most hated team. When the Pats started, I was an instant fan. The 4 decades of losing, ignomy and ridicule as the "Patsies" was hard to take at times. Gotta luv the 21st century!

    LOL, yeah, I'd have been 9 or 10 at the time myself, and I can actually relatively vividily remember that draft day b/c at the time, I was a Notre Dame fan and really wanted the Pats to pick Mirer...good thing I was wrong!! It wasn't too long before I was a huge Drew fan.

    Holy crap! That was me, too. My brother was/is a huge Gaints fan and I had to go another way. All we had on TV was NFL (no AFL). So Jim Brown, Andy Robustelli , Milt Plumb, Lou Groza and the Browns were my childhood idols. :rocker:

    The Giants are still my #1 hated team and they always will be.

    :ditto: My shameful past. I was a huge Giant fan when I was a kid. They were the only show in town on Sundays and idolized YA Tittle. Then the AFL came along and saved me.
