Its 1AM. When I got home from tonight's Met loss, I found an NES emulator called Console Classix.
Of course, what was the first thing I did.
You guessed it. I played a game of Tecmo Super Bowl. I was the Raiders. In this game, for some reason, Bo Jackson is a god among mere mortals. I mean, he can't be touched. Even when the other team picks the right defense and 11 guys pile on him, he breaks out of it and runs down the field. I dominated the Houston Oilers 58-7. Here's the final boxscore:
Bo only ran for an 27.7 yards per carry and only 8 of his 18 runs resulted in touchdowns. At only 499 yards, this was a subpar game for Bo, but its been about 12 years since I've played the game.
I did attempt one pass with Jay Schroeder, whose scrubbiness in Tecmo was surpassed only by his real life ineptitude. He got picked off in his one attempt. That was the end of the Jay Schroeder experiment.
Marcus Allen did not get the ball.
Do you think Bo has ever actually played this game?
