EPISODE SUMMARY

If you are in your 50s like me, you probably grew up watching the variety of shows that were produced by one of the greatest companies in America, NFL Films. I remember visiting it when I was a teenager in the 1970s, when the establishment was located on North 13th Street in downtown Philadelphia. What I remember most from my first visit there was a big stairway as you walked in, and a giant mural of Ben Davidson of the Oakland Raiders at the top of those stairs.....

The mural of Davidson was even larger than the real Ben Davidson. But I digress.
