Raiders aren't even one of the 4 best teams in the game. SF, NYG, BUF, and HOU are all better.

Also the rules work that each match you have to flip a coin and the winner gets to choose both teams for the match. The loser then gets first pick of which of the two teams they want to use. A person can't use the same matchup more than once in the entire tourney.

So you can pick the Raiders and someone else but there's no guarantee you'll get them. Plus I've seen the Raiders lose plenty of time to superior defenses like the Bears.

NFL Films did a special on the game a while back and filmed at the Madison tourney. I show up in several clips in the background. I'm the bald dude with the red white and blue headband.

So I can cross "Be on NFL Films" off the bucket list. :-D

I might have you beat on this one. Back in the 90's, I worked for a major rock radio station here in Atlanta. At one point, we did a promotion with Playboy Magazine ("The Girls of Radio) that they filmed here at the Cheetah, the largest strip club in the southeast, and turned into a video, where I can be seen in several different parts. So I can check "appear in a Playboy video" off of my list.

Ironman That's awesome I'm a huge gaming enthusiast and spend more time watching people play NES games on twitch than I'd like to admit :-D

Tecmo Bowl is a classic and was probably the hottest 2p sports game Nintendo ever had.

A guy I watch regularly can get up to Mike Tyson blindfolded in Punch Out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvzIb53Lcno

I stopped playing Sim City after the third version. I get a bit nostalgic for Sim City and 2000, as they were the first PC games I had. That and Myst.

Only other games I get nostalgic about are Goldeneye N64 and FIFA 98.
