    Now somebody just needs to find Super Bowl I.

    Or the first inning of Don Larsen's perfect game.

    And that's a big reason why a 10-9 game, with multiple pitching changes, pinch-hitters and an injury timeout, took only 2:36 to complete. That, plus Tony LaRussa was no where near Forbes Field that day.

    La Russa would've batted Vern Law eighth.

    The NFL achiving their games was so damn smart.

    Hacker, this might be fourth on a Yinzer's list behind Ben/Santonio, Bradhaw/Swann in X and the final save against the Red Wings.

    The NFL didn't save many of their games from that era either. Anything that was saved was by NFL Films, which was a separate company from the league.

    This topic was also on the baseball thread, but I'll repeat myself here. Film was very expensive for TV stations back then, so they just used the film again, taping over previous shows.

    There also weren't VCRs or DVRs back then, and TV people had no idea that people would want to watch a show or game a second time (like in Back to the Future in 1955, when the kid asks Marty, "What's a rerun?")

    Or they aired live and were never taped in the first place.

    I feel good for Pirates fans. They deserve something good to happen, even if it actually occurred 50 years ago and involved Bing Crosby's wine collection.
