    I know, but it's kind of sad that not too many care anymore. I'll keep the flame burning for the next thirty years or so (until I kick).

    I'd love to get a large copy of the 61 Championship program cover framed or laminated. It would look awesome in my office or TV room.

    I really dig this old AFL stuff; the crazy inflated passing stats, the awesome old uni's and logos, the championships! Hopefully more AFL video footage starts to show up. A guy was selling a VHS copy of the 61 championship game on eBay last year... I totally regret not snagging it (like an idiot I thought I'd wait for someone to throw it on DVD).

    Most of us are new fans though, and didn't like the oilers. They never had anyone I could cheer for before they came to tennessee. I'm not old enough for the Earl days, and Moon was ok.
    So that's why it's rare.
