QB Eagles Should Be in the Hall of Fame

Any boy lucky enough to own a Nintendo Entertainment System can wax poetically about Tecmo Super Bowl. It is unequivocally the greatest sports video game of all time. It was so good it ended the era of side-scrolling football games. It was so good, you didn't pick a defense, you just tried to guess what the other guy would call. It had glitches, superhuman athletes, and frantic button-tapping all in one. And it unleashed a fury a video game athletes, the likes of which we may never see again. Topping that list is Bo Jackson:

The only thing the game was ever missing was an advertisement, but thanks to the sprawl of youtube over every corner of the universe, we have that now as well.
