If we can send a dune buggy to Mars there must surely be a way for technology to allow Steve's eulogy to be narrated by the late John Facenda.

I prolly told you guys this already, but my dad was an elementary school principal from the mid-70's until the late 90's.  In the late 70's and early 80's he would have a school assembly and show the kids the NFL Films highlight reel, which I guess you could get if you were an elementary school principal.  Best part was, he would bring the projector home and we'd watch that fucker the weekend before school started, up on the drywall in the basement.  He'd also order the NHL highlight reels and one movie (edited down for schools natch) of my and my brother's choosing, just for our private viewing pleasure.  That's how I saw The Black Hole.  Anyway NFL Films was huge part of my childhood, as I guess it was for anyone who grew up in the 70's or early 80's... before ESPN came along and did for sports what Mtv did for music.

Awesome memory, great dad.
