I miss the old AFC West with Seattle. The division was at or near the top year after year.

What a refreshingly simple, direct, clean opening. I miss the days when the commercials were only during the actual ******* commercials.

The snowball[edit]On their last possession of the first half, the 49ers mounted a nine-play drive which ended in a 19-yard field goal attempt. As holder Matt Cavanaugh received the snap from center, a snowball thrown from the stands landed just in front of him. Distracted, he mishandled the football and was unable to hold it for kicker Ray Wersching. In desperation he picked up the ball and attempted a forward pass, but there were no receivers downfield and it fell incomplete. No penalties or palpably unfair acts were called, and the Broncos took over on downs.[1] They went on to win 17–16, making the failed field goal a pivotal factor.

After the game, referee Jim Tunney explained, "We have no recourse in terms of a foul or to call it on the home team or the fans. There's nothing in the rule book that allows us to do that."[2] He ordered an increase in stadium security at halftime, and no further incidents occurred.[1]

That takes a pretty good arm to get a snowball out that far, not to mention the accuracy! Good job, Bronco fans!

My dad called me about 3 pm in the afternoon that day. Told me someone at work had given him tickets. It had just snowed and they didn't want to get out in the cold. We were at the game sitting on about the 30 yd line. There were a number of snowballs thrown during the game from stands. Even with a few warnings over the address system. However, the one thrown toward Ray Wersching (sp) was the best one thrown all night long. Timing was perfect. Always great to beat the 49ers no matter how it happened.

At one time, I know this game was Joe Montana's worst statistical performance ever!!! Bill Walsh was 0-4 lifetime versus Denver, but he had to retire and Seifert made up for it in January of 1990. Ouch!

ABC must look back now with pride at their 1985 announcing team huh? The Giff wanted to give anal to a flight attendant in a Manhattan hotel room, but Kathie Lee stuck by her man.

Broadway Joe became a legendary drunkard, and only his on camera episode with Suzy Kolber made him cleanup his act.

And of course, The Juice!

It's also funny watching people FOR YEARS now, throwing around clips of many of the games I brought to the tape trader hobby to between 12 to 16 years ago. It's classic, because I have people who I don't even know offering me copies of games, that I am the original owner of. But the idea that people are enjoying these time travels is pretty cool too!!
