Or, by all means, forget it as soon as you close this post. I’m really only posting this as a flimsy excuse to embed the bit from “The Critic” where they make fun of electric football. But in case your interest is piqued, here are details:

More than 60 dedicated Electric Football coaches will gather during the weekend of August 2-5 at the Holiday Inn Cleveland-Airport for the chance to be crowned National Champion. Favored for the title are defending Champion Adrian Baxter of Landover, MD, and two-time regional TOC winner Jim Davis of Detroit. Other coaches, traveling from as far away as Florida and California, will be “tweaking” their players and playbooks in hopes of pulling off a memorable upset.

The drama! The pageantry! The “tweaking”! The event scheduled during Hall of Fame weekend in Canton in the blind hope that football fans will stray north to an airport hotel to watch electric football!
