Re: cfl phone

OMG!! I HAD THAT PHONE!! I had it in the late 80's early 90's.It was pretty much my first phone growing up. It sat on a brown plastic kicker's tee. I loved it, but it eventually stopped working and I don't know what happened to it. I think I originally got it at a place like the Bay. THey came with a round sticker of your team, to put in the middle. This takes me back! Good find.

Re: cfl phone

Maybe that is your phone. Ballistic stole it! This thrift store thing is just a front. Just look at his shifty eyes, his Mexican Bandito Poncho. Cmon Ballistic, fess up, or should we call you El Hefe.


Tell me how long must a fan be strong? Ans. Always.

Re: cfl phone

Bob, when you said it was from the 80s, I was kind of hoping it would be a rotary dial, for that added vintage touch. Good find though, all the same.


Sports can be a peculiar thing. When partaking in fiction, like a book or movie, we adopt a "Willing Suspension of Disbelief" for enjoyment's sake. There's a similar force at work in sports: "Willing Suspension of Rationality". If you doubt this, listen to any conversation between rival team fans. You even see it among fans of the same team. Fans argue over who's the better QB or goalie, and selectively cite stats that support their views while ignoring those that don't.
